Why I <3 Destructoid: Naia's Birthday Edition

   0
I had my birthday on friday as many found out when Hamza spilled the beans on my Monthly Musing. I had a feeling my fiance was up to something but wasn't sure what. I come from dinner and find not only a bunch of people in my apartment (all of which are DToiders), but to find out that these people put their money together to get me this:



Yes a 32gig iPod Touch. Like with Chad a few weeks ago, Destructoid shares the love. The engraving on the back of my iPod says "With love, from your friends at Destructoid." I tried to take a picture so others could see the engraving, but the reflection was too much. I hope you guys take my word for it. I'm still pretty speechless and I have to say you guys are awesome. Even if you had nothing to do with this, it's okay. You are still awesome. I know there were at least some people who pitched in that live far away, and you know who you are ;)

Ever since PAX it's been proven time and time again that many of the community members are so friendly and so generous and I really feel like it's a strong point of this community. This birthday surprise is frosting on the cake (no pun intended).

It's been a crazy month birthday-wise and I hope that everyone who did celebrate a birthday this month had a great one! I know I did :)

Chad is right. This community rules.

About naia-the-gamerone of us since 1:51 PM on 09.13.2007

My name is Naia (pronounced either Nay-a or Neye-a, like yay or like eye). I've been poking around here for a while, although I don't comment as much as I used to. I am I'm a starving artist in LA trying to keep my sanity. I do mostly freelance work and I'm always looking for people (even on DToid) to do fun projects with in entertainment. That can be either in theater, film, TV, or video games. I want to be like Kermit the Frog and be part of a group that entertains and makes people happy. I also love blue slimes, puppies and Sprinkles Cupcakes.

I've been playing computer and video games all my life. My dad was a programmer so we got an IBM 5150 PC very early on in the 80's. For Christmas in 1989 my parents surprised me with a Nintendo and it's been downhill ever since. I have/had most consoles over the years, mainly from Sony or Nintendo. I've had some Sega consoles and an Xbox 360 too.

I'm a big fan of the JRPG trinity of Final Fantasy, Dragon Quest and Fire Emblem (more DQ and FE lately, but I didn't hate FFXV). I was a finalist in Nintendo's DQ6 trivia contest back in 2011. I play RPGs, Action/Adventure, Platformers, Puzzles, and Point-n-Click Adventure games. I will play fighters and shooters, but they have to be the right kind of game.

Also, Rydia is my hero.

I'm such a nerd, I like to keep track of all the games I've completed in an excel file (it's almost 400). Now that my backlog is out of control I have a word document for that too. My goal is to for once and for all eliminate the backlog, or at least keep it to a number in the single digits.

I have a lot of things to say about the game industry, it's something I care deeply about and love giving my opinions. I like to rant about shit. I'm here just to share what I have to say, in hopes someone is willing to listen.

Also for the record, my Top 5 Games of All Time
1. Chrono Trigger
2. Final Fantasy 4
3. Super Mario 3
4. Dragon Quest 11
5. Phantasy Star 4

Yes, I love my retro games (and DQ 11)
