We’ve all been down that road many times. The world desperately needs saving, somewhere a princess stares up at the sky hoping to be rescued, and an evil alien race is prepping their giant laser to melt the Earth into gelatinous cubes. Yet, we find ourselves needlessly collecting, escorting, or racing across the map to beat some arbitrary best time. We may be the only hero capable of bringing some great evil to his or her ultimate end, but that shit can wait until after we’ve found all 10,000 hidden golden spiders or collecting all the PDA voice logs of scientists rambling about nothing and then getting their bowels eviscerated mid-sentence. The main storyline, no matter how trite or captivating, often takes a back seat to pure completion-ism.

Twenty four years ago I was adorable. Now I'm inquisitive and hilarious.
I have a plastic tooth to replace one lost in a mosh pit during my more ridiculous high school years. I speak shitty German and I ride a bike. My Xbox gets so much use, I'm sometimes embarassed. But I'm unemployed, so my time is spent writing blogs on the internet, reading good literary fiction, and playing video games.
In the grand scale of things, I'm a late-bloomer. My parents banned all consoles from my house as a kid. See what you've done? Now I game constantly to make up for years of lost time.
I won't list my favorites, because you've probably seen ten lists like it before me.
There's a life-sized Boba Fett standee in my living room.
