Vampire Revolution

Recently in popular culture, vampires have taken a massive beating. After the Twilight Series and Vampires Suck movies came into theaters and just well… sucked, recovery seems daunting. Sure the 2008 indie film, Let the Right One In, should...

 
 
 

Heavy Metal in Space

Sometimes… No. A lot of times music has a heavy influence on how you like a game and how you remember it. I am personally a big fan of rock, straying mostly into indie and indie-like bands. As a result, anytime I hear anything remotely rese...

 
 
 
 

Help Out the New Guy

Hi everyone. I’m new here and it’s introduction time! My name is not Desist, and I love reading and thinking about videogames as well as just playing them. This site seems fun, except for that whole when-you-put-in-your-username-and-press-t...

 
 

About Desistone of us since 12:36 PM on 04.29.2010

My family for the most part was anti-video games, so I didn't get full into playing video games until I was in my teens. Then, a friend introduced me to the first-person shooter, Red Faction for PC. The single player was fun, but the online battles were amazing. The ability to change and use your environment by blowing it up was ingenious. Online, I became addicted to the adrenaline rush from the frenzied killing and team-based strategies. Sometime later, I was introduced to Final Fantasy games with deep, complex stories and characters that made me feel something and care, even if only a little bit. There were also those games that just scared the bejeesus out of me such as Doom 3, Left 4 Dead, and Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines. I enjoy the sense of community from games and systems where you can meet and have fun with real people. I don't like to play games just to pass the time or pretend that I'm better than someone else. I want to play games that enrich our lives, transform us, and connect us together, all while giving a high that very few things in real life can. The makers of such games aren't mere mortal men, but gods. Their work isn't just compiled numbers and flashing lights, but uberkunst. And yes.... I want to be one of them.

My favorite games happen to be Red Faction, Final Fantasy IX, Final Fantasy XI, the Xenosagas, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, Mario Kart: Double Dash, Star Wars: Republic Commando, Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines, and Rock Band.

I've played on most of the consoles minus some really old ones like Atari. Of the various systems, I prefer the PC.
