I Am A Flower - Gaming Related Poem

I am a flower Through the winds I set on an unknown flight One in which I can feel a lot of power Or feel powerless upon what may be in sight.  I am a flower with no real color As it changes from place to pla...

Another Chance

A little off-topic, and clearly not following my blog as I thought I would, here I am going a little personal, without the drama. This may very well be a sequel to a blog I wrote years ago entitled: "A Clear Mind. A Better Gaming" on w...

Social distancing brought me back to blogging.

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

2010: Metal Gear Solid 3 Snake Eater

2011: Radiant Historia

2012: Klonoa Door to Phantomile

2013: Fatal Frame 3 The Tormented

2014: Onimusha Dawn of Dreams

2015: The Legend of Zelda Skyward Sword

2016: Final Fantasy IX

2017: Persona 5

2018: Skies of Arcadia Legends

2019: Persona Q2 New Cinema Labyrinth

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.
