About Nogardaone of us since 6:16 PM on 01.25.2008

Gaming Since: 1988 [Age 5]

First game Ever Played: Duck Hunt

First Game Completed: Duck Tales [NES]

Favorite Game of All Time: Panzer Dragoon Saga
Why? - Essentially flawless, epic storyline, had tech in-game that some games even today still fail to meet in some situations, and for its time had some of the highest detail FMV's going even topping FF7.

Favorite Franchise: Hitman Series
Why? - 47 is Silent but deadly. Unless your trying to mimic or follow a preset path only you have decided to take is any playthough simalar and in some situations AI in some situations is ever repeatedly the same something different is always going on thats different from last time even if your not directly seeing it. Hitman also maintains a sense of realism while maintaining colour unlike the higher level rendered games of brown and grey. I will love the Hitman series until 47 fibre wires me because I know too much >.>

Current five games looking forward to in any order:
Hitman: Absolution
Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
Assassin's Creed: Revelations
Mass Effect 3
Dragon's Dogma
