About Jatoone of us since 1:44 PM on 09.30.2010
Raised from the fires of the ATARI 2600, Wizard and Warrioring my way though NES, Contra: Hard Corpsing onward from Sega Genesis toward PlayStation, N64, and beyond. I am a gamer in the truest sense: I may not beat you in Gamerscore, but I have played DOOM COOP over modem. I have hosted a dedicated Unreal server. I have been part of a clan in Tribes. I own the Ultimate Edition of Dead Space. And for one brief, perfect moment, I played a COOP game of System Shock 2 over the Internet. I have seen the mountain top my friends...
Recently my 360 died, so as of right now, I am PS3 exclusive. A part of me likes the newly uncomplicated nature of my gaming, but another part of me wants to finish Alan Wake.
360 vs PS3 is also difficult for me because although I'm better at gaming on a PS3, I don't like any of the console exclusive games. Uncharted I couldn't care for, God of War isn't fun, it's sadistic to play, and Infamous gets my vote for most annoying game of 2009. That being said, I never achieve a level above n00b in a game like Halo or Gears of War (both of whose stories I greatly enjoy).
I lament not being able to play StarCraft 2.
My favorite console is the Nintendo DS.
