I'm just your everyday comic book nerd from Long Island, New York studying Biology, that has just gotten back into video games after a one-generation hiatus. While I enjoy all the consoles, Nintendo will always be my favorite (although the seeming mediocrity of the Gamecube is part of the reason why I stopped playing games). My first console was the Super Nintendo back in 1991 followed by the Nintendo 64 in 1997, and the Nintendo Entertainment System a short time later (weird order, i know). At this time my younger brother decided to branch off to the SONY Playstation systems, a place where he remains today. After the N64, I began to feel that I was outgrowing video games and had completely stopped playing by the time the Gamecube came out. With a PS2 in the house, I didn't feel it was necessary to go out and get the Gamecube. After trying out a friend's Wii, I was completely hooked once again. At first I thought the controls were stupid, but after actually trying it out I couldn't believe how fitting they actually were. I purchased my own Wii in August 2007, and am really enjoying the Virtual Console feature where I can play old-school NES, SNES, and Sega Genesis games games that I always wanted to (can you believe I have never played completely through Sonic the Hedgehog?). After beating The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess and Super Mario Galaxy, I am really feeling like a kid again with this system and am really glad that I decided to go back to video games. I also have a Gameboy SP and a Nintendo DS, both of which kick ass. In the end, I am a casual gamer and I know that some people in the video game community don't take kindly to that for some reason, but I do feel that I have the knowledge and the skills to not only play this generation's video games, but to talk and debate about them as well.

Here are some of my favorite games:
Super Mario Brothers
Super Mario Brothers 3
Super Mario World
Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins
Super Mario 64
Super Mario Galaxy
Donkey Kong Country 1 and 2
Donkey Kong 64
