I guess it would make sense to start at the beginning. I've been a gamer for more than 23 years so, awesome, now I feel old. Cliche as it may seem, I actually did start off with the Super Mario Bros./Duckhunt combo. From there it went in a few different directions, in no particular order with, Legend of Zelda, Ghosts N Goblins, Excitebike, Sky Shark, Rygar, and a game called Excaliber. It seems that it was so long ago now that I first felt the edges of that cheap plastic controller in my hands. My favorite game to play, at the time, was mindlessly blasting fighter jets out of the sky and collecting points ala Sky Shark. Anyway, let's talk about my first love. No not the kind of love you get from a valentines day card and a kiss on the cheek by the jungle gym. I'm talking about the kind of love that delivered 16 bit adventures in fantastical worlds where it seemed only I mattered and the fate of those worlds were in my hands. The Sega Genesis, oh how you changed me forever. It was my best friend and the only console I had for years. Anyone remember Pirates Gold? Loved that game. Slaughterhouse, Kid Chameleon, Mortal Kombat, the Sonic Games and a slew of weird shit that would probably just go over some peoples heads. Again, old ass right here. That is if you consider 28 and old fart. At times I would find myself at friend's houses so I could play the Super Nintendo and later the 64.Though, for a while there, Doom, Shadow Warrior and Duke Nukem 3-D took up a lot of my time. So, the next console I got was the hallowed PSX. It's embarrassing but, I cried. I couldn't help it, I was so (overly) happy about it. This is truly when I found a new love with RPG's and to this day I'm dedicated to the Playstation in all it's forms. It just gave me a whole new respect for gaming in general. I've gotten every single system Sony has put out and put ungodly hours into each one. I do consider myself a little biased but it's not to say I wouldn't play a game just because it's on another system. I've never done that and frankly it's just pointless to live that way. But, yes, I do play favorites. I'm playing anything that's worth a damn and in some cases worth nothing at all. Military FPS' I'm not a big fan of(Though I will play them), fighters I'm pretty picky with (I don't even play Street Fighter), and RTS' I find don't make their way into my disc trays, it's just not my style I guess. It's hard to really name everything I do like but I will iterate my absolute adoration for Survival Horrors. Ever since I got my hands on the first Clock Tower, I was "hooked". I've played all the good ones and a lot of the bad ones...and boy are there some bad (but awesome!) ones. Even then, I just can't help but appreciate it for what it's' worth. This has gotten pretty lengthy so, I'll cut it here. I'm in Fort Worth, TX, love craft beer, like meeting new people and need more gamer friends so feel free to hit me up.
