First Day of the Rest of my Life


So I've made a Destructoid account. After reading seven or eight articles one after another I decided its probably about time I make an account on this website. I enjoy the editorials and take on news so I thought I'd start contributing to a website I've been casually using for the past few months.

If you want my biography, I'm pretty sure you'll be able to read that on the right hand side. Until then, this post is just sort of a reminder of when I first made this account. I guess if anyone stumbles upon this they could say something like "Welcome bra" or some equivalent but I know how these things usually work and I don't expect any comments. I look forward to contributing and posting in the future. I'll be sure to write again soon.

And as I look over my "publish" options I'm afraid this post will be added to some pool of editorials and srisbzness blogs that I don't intend to enter this entry for. Well I guess you have to fail a few times before getting it right, so lets see what I did wrong. *Click*

My name is Artie Augustyn... and I'm an alcoholic. No I'm not, but I feel inclined to say that joke when given the opportunity no matter how predictable it has become. I started playing video games in 1997 when my parents bought me a Nintendo 64 and pleading for one for years. I was given Super Mario 64 and Goldeneye 64 on Christmas, and a year later on my Birthday I got Ocarina of the Time. I eventually moved up to a GameCube based on the brand recognition. I was soon persuaded into the world of Sony after playing Dynasty Warriors and Vice City at a friends house, and now I stand before you with an Xbox360, Playstation 3, Wii and PC.

For the most part many people have considered me a "late gamer." I never owned a NES, SNES, Sega Console, or Atari and I get a lot of flak for that. I've begun an initiative recently to go back and play older games that people hold to high praise and you can follow that on my podcast which I'm sure I'll mention a thousand times in this blog.

In terms of my views on gaming, I'd like to think that gaming will one day achieve a level of professionalism and seriousness such as movies or books. I think there are a few reasons that this goal has been kept back. Many gamers don't take the notion seriously, in addition to many leading voices not knowing what they're talking about, and in general everyone's disbelief that it's possible for games to be something more than what they already are. Although, I found Destructoid's views to make the most sense out of what I've seen so far, so I made an account on that sole reason.

I think that covers everything.
