Why I like motion controls

Once again, I have to invoke the notion of the arrogance of the “hardcore gamer.” Many of them seem to hold either ambivalence or hatred towards motion controls as used in gaming. Not without cause or reason, the Wii had just a midget’s ...

 
 
 

That Game Sucks!

95% of “hardcore gamers” can be summed up in one category. We all want to see the new games, play the new cool games coming off the shelves. It is the basis of our whole relationship with new games. I’ve been doing something recently in d...

 
 
 

“Gamer” is dead.

Nas stated in this album, “Hip Hop is Dead”. It was used to describe the current state of what people know as "Hip Hop." Likewise, I say that the term “Gamer” is dead. Should you truly enjoy video games and care about them, at a certain p...

About GiftofGabone of us since 6:37 PM on 10.24.2009

I grew up in New York City, and have been playing video games pretty much as soon as I could pick up a controller. The earliest game I remember playing was Nintendo’s “Baseball”, and all I really remember from that was hitting a home run, only to be stopped by the game freezing right before I saw any recognition of my achievement. That’s why I became a gamer.

Let me get the big cardinal sin out of the way, and tell you my favorite games. My favorite game is Metal Gear Solid 4, for its amazing storyline, with Final Fantasy 10 following up for the same reason. Killer 7 and No More Heroes are next, Killer 7 because of its absolutely extravagant storyline and extremely fun gameplay, and No More Heroes because it is extremely, extremely fun. Currently its a tie between Fallout 3 and Uncharted 2 for the 5th slot.

I am a big Matt Groening fan, and am eagerly awaiting the return of one of my favorite shows, Futurama. Another eagerly awaited show for me is the third season of The Boondocks, which is just one of the most hilarious shows ever made.

I listen to all different kinds of music, but mostly what I refer to as “alternative hip-hop.” Currently my favorite rapper is Chali 2na, who has a ridiculously awesome voice. Then there isThe Gift of Gab, who is part of the duo Blackalicious. Silly name, great group. (yes its where I got the name) The Third place trophy goes to Lupe Fiasco, who’s over the top references and unreserved style remind me heavily of The Wire.

So, who can explain why there's a a white square where my gamertag and psn ID are supposed to be? greatly appreciated.
