Please allow me to introduce myself, I'm a man of wealth and taste

Hi Destructoid,

Pleased to meet you. I'm 22 years old and from Vienna, Austria. That means that I live in the shithole of gaming, called Europe, and my first language is German, so please don't think I'm a retard or something if my English isn't perfect.

I started regularly visiting Destructoid a few months ago (now you know how long I've been lurking ZOMG!!) when I discovered RetroforceGO! which is my favorite podcast in the whole wide web since then. This might have to do with the fact that the most recent home console I own is the Super Nintendo. So don't tell me about OLD SKOOL. I own a DS and play modern PC games though, it's just that I've always been more of a PC gamer and rediscovered console gaming not really until last summer. There will be a day I get some of this modern Playstation stuff you kids are so excited about since the mid-nineties.

I said "rediscovered" because in my childhood I was madly in love with the Master System and the Mega Drive. So yeah, I was a Sega Kid, but hey, here in Europe that wasn't such a rare thing as it was in the US. Anyway, my primary gaming machine was always the computer. First the Atari ST, then the PC. But also this is quite usual over here.

I play nearly all kinds of games, but most of the time my favorites are the ones with focus on narrative. I'm also a "Games are art"-hippie and play games for content rather than for challenge. And yeah, I do think that's a pretty smart way to say "Despite nearly twenty years of playing games I still somehow suck at most of them".

Ah, screw you, my mom says I'm hardcore.
