I suck at games: Metroid and graph paper

About CapnCrunkone of us since 5:12 AM on 03.22.2009

Been gaming since I was a wee lad, my first console was an NES in 1988. I'm into pretty much any game that's good, though if it's a genre in which I suck I'm going to give up on it. I've owned most popular consoles at one point or another, and my game playing tends to bounce around time from newly released to escaped me in my youth. I never use emulators, because doing that is illegal and therefore immoral.

Some favorite games: Half-Life 2, Braid, Metroid Prime, World of Goo, Super Mario Galaxy, Bioshock, Beyond Good and Evil, Fallout, Final Fantasy X, Soul Calibur 2, Doom, Plants Vs Zombies, Sam & Max Season One, Resident Evil 4, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, Call of Duty 4, Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow, Chrono Trigger, Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney, plenty of others...

Right now I'm playing: WoW (an hour a day devoted to daily quests), Metroid (totally not on an emulator, you guys), Star Ocean: First Departure

Looking forward to: Metroid Prime Trilogy, Bioshock 2, Beyond Good and Evil 2 (cautiously)
