Hi! I'm Manny, Mighty Pirate!


So this is my blog. Feel free to make yourself at home. Take a seat and put your feet up. Can I offer you a refreshing Fresca?

The main purpose for this blog existing is because I love video games and I love to write. Unfortunately, I don't get many opportunities to do so. Thus, this blog. But now that I have my soapbox, I need something to yell about when I climb on top of it. I can make this a personal journal, but who wants to read that? I mean, sure, maybe some people are interested. But my life is pretty dull in general, so I'd have to really be reaching to update this with any sort of regularity. Does anyone want to read about how my annual physical went or the great deal I found on parsnips at the market? That's not what one does to get hits.

I can write about celebrity "nip slips", but I get the impression that the market on that is pretty well covered.

Ultimately, I came to the conclusion that I should keep this true to myself and what I'm all about. After all, if I'm bored with what I'm writing about, what are the odds that anyone else will care? And who would care to read it? No one, that's who!

What does that entail then? I am a big, fat gamer geek and that's what this blog is about. That part should be obvious, since this is Destructoid after all. Will I review stuff, give thoughts on things? Sure. This is the Internet and I have opinions. My main plan, however, is to write editorials and whatnot. I have a few in mind already and have already began writing one.

So please, come follow me in my geeky ways. I hope you enjoy what I have to say.

About MannySJone of us since 3:25 PM on 09.09.2011

I'm Manny and I'm a gamer.

But since this is Destructoid, you probably made that assumption before you even started reading this. So now I've wasted both of our time.

At any rate, gaming is my absolute passion. Sure, I enjoy movies, music, and watching the 49ers kick ass on Sundays, but gaming is where my heart is. I've been a gamer ever since I could hold my parents' Atari 2600 controller and have never looked back.

Some of my favorite games of all time include (in no particular order):

- Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
- Metal Gear Solid
- Deus Ex
- BioShock
- Super Metroid
- Super Street Fighter II
- Phantasy Star Online
- Final Fantasy VI
- Mega Man 3
- Secret of Monkey Island

Just to name a few...
