The Great Escape: Yes, I Can.

   0
Having been a gamer for most of my natural life [one of my earliest memories consists of playing Gran Turismo at my friend's house, listening to my parents laugh at us for leaning into our turns], you would imagine that there are many ways that gaming has been an escape for me. You would also imagine that all of that time would make this a fairly easy blog to write. However, in all that time, there's so many ways I can take this subject, that writing this has actually been rather difficult. However, by the last day of the month, I think I've decided what makes gaming an escape for me.

When one plays games, they can often do anything. Or at least feel like it.



So thank you, video games, for helping me escape to a place where even a scrawny girl built like a 14 year old boy can be the hero. Thanks for reading!! Comments are always appreciated. :]

About GeekyJuuuone of us since 2:02 PM on 02.06.2010

y halo thar, you can call me "Juuu". I do all sorts of wonderful geeky things, but my favorite is playing video games. :] I'm not picky, I'll play a little bit of anything as long as it's fun. But in case you need to know, here are my favorites: [in no particular order, of course.]

GENRE:
Survival Horror
Music Games
Fighters
RPGs [though I don't know why I bother-I can never finish them...]
Visual Novels/Text Adventures/Whatever you'd like to call them.

SERIES/GAMES:
Fatal Frame
Devil May Cry
Silent Hill
Persona
Ace Attorney
Harvest Moon
Pop'n Music
The World Ends With You

Being a student, I don't have much time to play these days, but I try. So what exactly is it that I'm trying to play right now?

DeathSmiles [360]
Pokemon SoulSilver [DS]
Half Minute Hero [PSP]

In case you'd like a little more background, here's the long story short:
Growing up as a tomboy, I spent more time as a child playing outside and trading pokemon cards than playing with dolls. A close childhood friend persuaded me to try playing PS1, and it was good. I recieved my very first console for Christmas, however, I mostly used it for licensed titles. The love affair didn't start until another friend persuaded me to try Super Mario 64.
And it was wonderful.
Since then, I've been taking great pride in nerding-out over game news of all sorts and wasting precious hours and dollars on games. Currently, I own an SNES, N64, PS2, Wii, and 360, as well as a DS and GBA SP, and I love them all like children. <333 I'd probably go after them first in a fire as opposed to clothes, pets, family heirlooms, ect. XD

I guess I'll add more as I think of it, but as for now, how bout you ask me things if you're curious? :]
