I grew up hating video games until I was 6, when I got my N64 with Pokémon Snap. How could I not have love for Pokémon IN FULL 3D ENVIRONMENTS! I bought Tony Hawk 1, which was the only reason why I continued buying consoles, so I could have the latest installment. Bought my Gamecube day one because my N64 made sure I was a Nintendo fanboy, I beat the shit out of every exclusive the Gamecube had, until it broke...:[
What?! No video games?! Preposterous! I had to play something, I went out to EB Games, bought myself Half Life 2 a year after it came out, it came with Counter-Strike Source too, and I had heard GREAT things about Counter-Strike, I figured I couldn't go wrong. Come home, install it. And it doesn't work, I had forgotten you'd need a gaming quality PC to actually play games on it. So I waited a couple months for Christmas and had my cousin pick out parts good enough to run it. That was when I built my first PC, with help of course...
Got big into PC gaming, then came around the current gen. I knew I had wanted a Wii regardless of my Gamecube breaking down. So I got my Wii launch day too, played it for a month and realized it was garbage and I wanted real online gaming. So I got my 360, which I still play to this day. About a year later I realized the Wii was garbage just taking space. I sold it to some soccer mom for enough money to get the Metal Gear PS3 SKU. And here I am now!
I used to love platformers but after a couple years of Counter-Strike I'd have to say FPS' will always be my favorite genre.
As to why I'm here? I drifted from Kotaku, I had read about Destructoid from some of the comments. I decided I'd bookmark it for the articles. And then I got banned from commenting(happened twice now!), I decided to sign up here. I guess I came for the articles, and stayed for the realistic douchey community. No sucking dicks on Destructoid! Fuck you guys! :D
