LONG BLOG

A wild intern has appeared!

   0
My name is Daniel Starkey. Iím one of about a dozen new Destructoid interns. We're pretty awesome. I was born in Texas, raised in Oklahoma, and Iím currently attending the University of Minnesota for some liberal arts bullsh!t. Iíve been around Destructoid since about a month after it was founded. I was heavy on the forums starting in December 2006 going by the handle Ėthe_mole-. I know Iíve met a lot of you at PAX í07 and again in PAX í09 and I will be coming back for PAX Prime í11. Maybe we can chill and have a beer or something.

So, as you probably guessed, I love games.Western RPGís, RTSís and old Xbox games have a special place in my heart. I believe that Majoraís Mask is probably the best game ever made and I will defend that opinion to the death. With fists. And stuff.

My favorite games tend to be those that are unique enough to keep me engaged for more than a few seconds, and those that encourage exploration. A few favorites: Butcher Bay, Paper Mario 2, Fallout (all of them), Killer 7, every Bioware or Bethesda game and Majoraís Mask.

As for experience, I have been writing about games in one capacity or another since about 2005. A few friends and I tried to start a nice gaming blog but it went belly-up sometime around í08. Since then Iíve been writing for my own amusement, posting random things on the C-Blogs and working as an editor for some pretty cool dudes at the University of Minnesota.

Iím pretty big into GamePolitics and thinking about legitimizing gaming as a medium for an artistic expression, but thatís a whole Ďnother thing....

Anyway, feel free to add me on facebook, twitter and google+ (and if you need an invite, I got plenty).


I hope we can all get along and be really cool buddies. I just want you to know that I feel really good about you. I want this to happen. I want us to happen.

About Daniel Starkeyone of us since 2:41 PM on 12.27.2006

Some say he never sleeps and eats only gourmet amaretto cupcakes. Others claim he's a hyperactive optimist. To citizens of the Destructoid empire, though, he's Captain Starkey, Intergalactic Games Journalist.


Disclosure: In my undergrad at the University of Minnesota, I did do PR and event promotion for Microsoft. It does not and has not affected any of the pieces I have written, but it is something that you, as a reader, should know.
