Video Games and The Gamers That Play Them: Destructoid

I've been meaning to do something like this for a while, and this month's monthly musing's subject is just a perfect way to present it. Now, I know everyone at some point in time does an "I love DESTRUCTOID!!!" post, but I wanted to actually document the ways that being a community member of Destructoid has changed my life, and why they are the best damn sub-group of gamers, EVAR!!!.

Firstly, I would not have an Xbox 360 if it weren't for Destructoid. I had vowed to never purchase an Xbox 360 in the beginning of the console war, simply because I thought it was going to be nothing more than a prettier Xbox. If it hadn't been for all of the love shown for games like Dead Rising and Oblivion, I would've never given the 360 a second glance. To think that I would've missed out on the whole Live experience... I am most grateful.

Secondly, there are more than a few games I would've overlooked had I not been a community member at Destructoid. As amazing as Bioshock is, I never would've played it if it hadn't been for this community. I'd had a strong prejudice against 1st person shooters, and that was part of the reason why I had originally sworn off the 360. But after hearing so many cries of "AMAZING!", I could not ignore this game. I picked it up from Hollywood video rather than waiting to get it from Gamefly, and beat it in the 5 days I had it. I was definitely impressed... the game was great, and I would've missed it had it not been for all of you guys. Beyond that there's, Call of Duty 4, The Orange Box, Audiosurf, Barkley Shut up and Jam: Gaiden, Cave Story, Oblivion, Killer 7 and these are all just off of the top of my head.

Finally, I've got people to play games with! If it weren't for this website, all of those games you see tagged with "Xbox Live" would be offline affairs only for me, as I can't stand playing with random 12 year olds and racists over XBL. Even though I don't play that much online, it's nice to know that if I really want to get in a good session of Gears or COD: 4, I could just wait until Friday, rent or pop in said game, and then commence to killing with like minded gamers who won't be acting like children throughout the experience.

Thank you, everyone, for being so damn amazing! This is the greatest sub-group of gamers in the world!

About Dynamic Sheepone of us since 12:16 PM on 08.28.2007

Hi! I play video games and don't afraid of anything. Well, I am afraid that I might accidentally a whole Jill sandwich... but the chances of that happening are slim! I don't blog as much as I'd like to.

I've had every system I could get my hands on since I first played Super Mario Brothers on the NES, and currently I have a Wii, Dreamcast, PS3, and 360 hooked up to my TV. My all time top 5 favorite games: Super Smash Bros. Melee, LoZ: A Link to the Past, Super Metroid, Chrono Trigger, Castlevania: SotN.

I don't really have a favorite genre, because I like pretty much all video games. It's easier to just list the genres that I don't like. Simulation sports games (Madden, Tiger Woods, etc.) are no fun at all in my opinion and most FPS games (with few exceptions) bore me.

I wanted to join this community because the front page posts are fantastic, and the cblogs are packed full of win. During my time here, I've met tons of amazing people, and have had an awesome time at the first Mega-NARP in Cincinnati. My favorite thing about Destructoid is the cocks. Long live Destructoid.com!

On a NVGR note, these men are amazing!
