About MetaTotoroone of us since 12:12 AM on 07.15.2011
Hellooo! I'm just a little bit younger than I'd like to admit compared with the Destructoid team, but still believe I have found a place where I fit in here.
I originally came to Destructoid a few years ago, maybe around 2010, because I saw one of Holmes' interviews and immediately resonated with his views on gaming. I love how Dale gets excited about the weirdest games, and really love to read Jim's opinions on games and music.
Music is very central to my life, and is reflected in the games I choose. Best system was the SNES with RPG classics like Chrono Trigger (favourite game), Final Fantasies (FF IX is my best one) though I was also addicted to some FPSs in my early teenage years. I have a special place in my heart for Nintendo games. I have entered Smash Melee and Brawl tournaments and placed very well (but never won...grrr...MetaKnight...*grumble).
I can play the piano somewhat well, though I am still always learning. I played 'To Zanarkand' from FFX at my recital, had it professionally recorded, and got one of my classical english music teachers addicted to Uematsu. Yasunori Mitsuda's music in the Chrono games defined my childhood.
Oh yea, I'm gay, but shhhh... don't tell my parents or most of my friends. :'(
