Honoring Those Runner-Ups

As an award enthusiast myself, reading lists where tops are listed is something I always enjoy. Most of the time, awards give nominees and then the winners without any previous order breakdown or whatever. Granted, most people are ok w...

 
 
 
 

As I wait for the outcome of some job applications, I want to do something I couldn't do last year: play genres new to me. Mostly for PC, I am looking for Roguelike, FPS with story, god game, and action rpgs. More info in the comments.

 
 
 

Seemingly joined the unemployment ranks. This is not good.

 
 
 

Tried playing Muramasa, and failed. Odin Sphere wasn't that hard to follow. I'll try Dragon's Crown next.

 
 
 

First blog of the year published. Here's hoping I get called to work again so I can have more sources of inspiration.

 
 
 

30th Blog Special: Building A Gamer

Over the course of my life I have always wandered about how people got to where they are now. Truth is we all had some kind of help along the way, and for my gaming life I had the assistance of two people who aren't into gaming right ...

Wonder Woman 1984, either a good or a bad movie does something right: strong performances and DC's original take on its movies.

My Retro GOTY Awards 2020

Another year, and this backlog doesn't seem to finish. 2020 sure meant a lot of changes and difficulties for many, and while some found peace of mind and distraction in TV Shows, movies, or any other medium, we over here did that and o...

16 more days and this year will finally be over. Here's hoping that most of us return working in one way or another, and beat those issues that may get in our way. We can do it, don't know how, but we can.

 
 
 

The Game Awards used to be enjoyable... at best, but it's 2019 and 2020 iterations left me wondering if I should bother next year.

 
 
 

Quick update: two more games to beat in order to start working on my Retro GOTY Awards 2020. Happy gaming, everyone 👊🏼

Console Anniversary Special: Top 10 Wii Games

7 years ago, my by then girlfriend and I decided to buy ourselves a console to play a lot of games on. It was 2013, yeah, but all the rage was on 7th gen consoles as prices were low due to the upcoming next gen. Once we bought it, a pl...

 
 
 
 

On a day like this but 7 years ago, I decided to take blogging seriously. Funny how time has gone by and words keep coming to me. Thanks to my previous mentor and to Destructoid for believing in gamers who want to express themselves.

 
 
 

Been checking the US elections results since day one. Though I don't live there, I am relieved to see it's finally over.

 
 
 

Doing some cleaning at my new place, I found this relic from my very first birthday party. This brought a smile to my face.


 
 


About Exberone of us since 7:47 PM on 04.07.2020

I guess these would be considered as my stats, so here I go:

I'm Exber, not related to my name by any means. I'm from Venezuela and I'm an English Teacher.

I have been playing video games since I was 4 years old. Goldeneye 007 for the Nintendo 64 are among my first gaming memories.

Console gamer. I play on PS2, PS3, PSP, Wii, 3DS, DS, and many retro systems. However, PC is not out of the picture.

Resident Evil and Persona share the spot as my favorite gaming series. Following this, here are my favorite games per year:

2006: The Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time

2007: Resident Evil 2

2008: Persona 4
Runner Up: Resident Evil 4

2010: Metal Gear Solid 3 Snake Eater
Runner Up: Final Fantasy XII

2011: Radiant Historia

I try to learn the most I can with every video game, thus my Retro GOTY winners won a place in me. Best examples are Persona 4 (2008) and Final Fantasy IX (2016)

GameSpot and GameInformer were the sites that granted me the opportunity to blog prior to coming here. Good times.

I'm currently 26 years old. Come May 10th and I'll level up.

Favorite color: green.

Favorite number: 4.

Favorite video game genre: Survival Horror. RPGs come second.

Favorite movie: 13 going to 30.

Favorite game of all time: Persona 4.

And, that's about it for now.
