Compassion of an ahole, and why good is bad.

I am a selfish, ruthless, intimidating, jerk. Its just so easy. Like Homer Simpson said himself; "For people to like you, you have to work for it. You don't have to do anything for people to hate you." or something like that. Being a jerk is fun and I don't have to think about it to succeed at it. Well in video games that is, I'm actually a nice person in real life... I think.

I recently finished playing Dragon Age: Origins, as a good guy. I must say, I found it was hard work, seriously. I never had to think so hard at what might actually be a "good guy" response to the situations I found myself in. When I finally beat the game, I thought to myself; "why the fuck did I do that?". It was hard, it was rough, and at times I wanted to give up. But I stuck it out to the very end, and will proly never be a good guy again.

Being bad is fun, and I love being hated and feared, but there is something I could never be evil to... Animals. In Fable 2, I had no family, the world ran at the sight of me, and my nickname was the Butcher. And I never hit my dog, I played with him for minutes on end. And when I was given that final wish, I wished for him back. Because, I hate the world, and I'm already rich, I want my fucking dog back.

In Fallout 3, I would save every 5-10 minutes. Why, you ask? Thats a little crazy you think? I did this just in case my dog got killed. That way I could load my last saved game and save my doggy. In Mass Effect 2, I actually got sad that I couldn't bring that varen with me that was on Tuchanka. I had a hard time having just shooting those cute varen, cause of how badly I wanted one. Even if I did decide to be evil in Dragon Age, I still would have saved that mabari and have him fight by my side through the entire game.

In the end, I can't be good in video games. Being rude makes me laugh, being good makes my brain hurt. Shoot first, ask questions later, is just my style. I enjoy being feared, and I enjoy making threats to people lives. I'm assuming, rather hoping, that the only reason I do this, is because I am a good person. I would never make Shepard jump in front of a bus for someone, but I would do it in a heartbeat.

About RetroSoldierone of us since 4:05 PM on 12.21.2009

How'd I get into gaming. Go figure I was only three years old. It was past the NES era and even the SNES had been out for sometime now. But my family was poor and I knew little about anything games. I was only freakin' three years old afterall.

My dad could finally afford an NES so he bought one from a pawn shop one day. He got SUper MArio Bros. 1 ,2 and 3, Duck Hunt, the first Lolo, and Kirby's Adventure. My dad wanted to play SMB3 first, so he showed my brother how to do it. I was blown away watching my dad teach my brother how to play. All I could say after that was gimme, gimme, gimme, I want a turn. I will never forget how amazing SMB3 seemed to me. So I played and played. After that I went on to our other games and beat those ones up too.

I started out with an NES, but thats not where it stopped. My dad later bought an SNES. By then me and my two brothers were heavy into games and begged our mother to buy us an N64. I will never forget how awesome Super MArio 64 was and the Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time. After that we begged my mother for a gamecube. By now I was playing video games the most and could beat my brothers hands down at anything.

I got a job. I started to buy my own games and systems from there. My brothers had fallen out of the video game scene and I was the kid no one wanted to play video games with. I bought myself a Wii and soon after an XBox360, future plans are with a PS3 as well. On top of th I haved owned every Nintendo portable system... besides a Virtual Boy.

I don't do online multiplayer, nor do I play games for Multiplayer. I play them for the one player experiences. But if you wanted to come to my house and play some Left4Dead, I wouldn't turn you down. I just much prefer the face to face method of playing multiplayer. I ain't a competitive person so your gamer score doesn't mean a dime to me.

But here is my gamer tag widget anyways, cause I think its really cute!
