Helloo C-Blogs! It seems that when many of you join the community, you write introductory blogs, so I figured I'd follow suit here. I'm 23 years old, and I live in New Jersey. I just got married this past June, and it's exactly the same except I think we get some sort of tax breaks or something. I am currently employed full time at a manufacturing company as a Quality Assurance Technician, which basically boils down to me checking the parts we make every once in a while, filling out paperwork, and then sitting on my computer for the rest of the day. This is where Destructoid comes in.
I'd always checked the blogs here and others similar to it every once in a while, but never really with any regularity. I just never spent that much time on the computer, I was always either playing a video game or reading. But since starting this job, I'd discovered I had plenty of time to explore the internets. Now, I'm hopelessly addicted to Dtoid, and I love everyone here. The community is fantastic, and the humor is spot on (at least for me). Eventually I created a username here to comment on some posts, and now I've decided that I've got the time to actually write a blog or two here with the rest of the community.
On to the important thing - gaming. I love playing video games, and I always have. My earliest memory of gaming is Pitfall on the Atari, I have no idea how young I was but I still remember playing it to this day. After the Atari fried itself (it literally caught on fire), the family moved onto an NES, where I remember watching my brother and his friend play Q-Bert and Mario Bros. for hours on end. My obsession grew (maybe a strong word), and over time got the SNES, Genesis, PS1, Dreamcast, PS2, Xbox, Gamecube, PSP, to the current gen (not Next ANYMORE) 360, PS3 and Wii. I primarily use my 360, and only play exclusives for the PS3. I've got a serious backlog of games that I'd love to get to, but I just finished Uncharted 2, and have put Brutal Legend on hold because I caved and gave myself a little taste of Borderlands, and now I don't want to stop playing it. Haven't played online yet, but did some 2 player split screen with a buddy the other day, and that was plenty fun.
Well, it's 5 o'clock, and I get to go home now, so that's that. Thanks for giving this a read!
