Hi, Destructoid! It's nice to actually have words on this sidebar for once. Anyway, I enjoy a wide variety of genres in games on a multitude of consoles. So generally I'm not blatantly biased towards Corporation A over Corporation B, just because I might own one system and not the other.
Aside from games, I read only a few novels and comics, and I also watch anime and read manga from time to time, my favorite anime series thus far being Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann. Japanese culture fascinates me with its many quirks and oddities.
I'm surprised I've even gone this long without mentioning that Metal Gear Solid is my favorite game series of all time. I've never loved a series more than I love this one. I love the characters, the story, the gameplay, and of course, the actors (here's to you, Mr. Hayter). I will jump on anything MGS related if I get the chance. I'm pretty much obsessed. In terms of the old Metal Gear games, however, I'm not such a huge fan. I tried to get into them, but they were just too different for me to get used to.
Without further ado, here are The Systems I Currently Own: DS Lite, PS3, PSP, Wii
My Favorite Game Genres: Platformer, Action/Adventure, Shooter, RPG (Kinda)
My Favorite Games:
From the Playstation Brand:
Final Fantasy VII, IX, and X
Crash Bandicoot 2
The Spyro Trilogy (Insomniac's games)
Ratchet and Clank Series
Anything MGS (you should know this by now)
Patapon (undeniably adorable)
Valkyria Chronicles (Yes, a Sega game, but on Playstation)
From the Nintendo Brand:
Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars (one of the greatest games I have ever played)
The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask
The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
Super Smash Bros. Series
Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes (This was Silicon Knights, but I thought it was presented incredibly well and the new features made it a better game)
The Metroid Prime Series
The Paper Mario Series (Spiritual successors to Super Mario RPG, but worthy nonetheless)
Kirby Super Star (Ultra just made it 10x better)
From the Microsoft Brand (Ex-Bawx):
The Halo Trilogy
Gears of War
...haven't played much more than that
Starcraft (probably the only RTS I really liked)
Half-Life Series (even though I really have these on playstation, it still belongs here)
Team Fortress 2 (have this on both PS3 and PC, you can probably guess which I play 100% more)
Audiosurf (such a sweet game)
Left 4 Dead (What can I say? I do like me some Valve games)
Favorite Psycho Genius: Hideo Kojima
From all this information, you can probably tell I was primarily exposed to the PS1-N64 era, and that I also buy into Sony's big titles more. They tend to appeal to me more than others.
