10 things about Projectexodus you probably dont give a shite about.

Ok, my internet failed on me before I got a chance to publish this post yesterday, so thatís why Iím a little late to join the fad.

1. "Asl?"
First name: Gard
Age: 18
Gender: Male
Nation: Norway

2. First game I ever played (and also my favourite game of all time) is Super Mario Bros. 3.
Yup! I was about 3-4 years old or something back then, finally trying out my oldest sisters NES. I remember I was terrified when the 2 goombas approached me, so I called my mom to get past them for me. I defeated the game at the age of five.

3. First console and game I ever owned is the Gameboy Pocket with Super Mario Land.
I was 6 years when my dad purchased these gems for me during a vacation trip. I originally wanted a Game Gear, because my cousin had one. But my older sister purchased one before me, and I didnít want to copy her.

4. I cried when I got a N64 during Christmas 1997.
Me: ďWhatís this?Ē
*Opens up present*
*Gazes upon the cover of Lylat Wars (Aka Starfox 64, best game evar!)*
Me crying: But I donít have a N64Ö
Mom: Now, open up this present.
*Opens up present*
Me in shock: But thatís an N64!

5. I did not cry at the end of Half Life 2: Episode 2Ö
Well, why would you expect me to? When everyone keeps telling me how much they cried at the end of the game, then it becomes quite easy for me to find out what happens, and who it happens to, causing me to become mentally prepared for that ďsad endingĒ. And for the record, I probably won't cry during Shadow of the Colossus either.

6. My favourite bands are Pink Floyd and Black Sabbath.
Others artists/bands include:

- Bob Dylan
- Crosby, Stills, Nash (& Young)
- Deep Purple
- Dire Straits
- Electric Light Orchestra
- Fleetwood Mac
- Iron Maiden
- Jethro Tull
- Judas Priest
- Led Zeppelin
- Meat Loaf
- Mike Oldfield
- Nik Kershaw
- Ozzy Osbourne
- The Police
- Queen
- Radiohead
- Rhapsody of Fire
- Simple Minds
- The Beatles
- The Rolling Stones
- The Smashing Pumpkins
- The Waterboys
- Toto
- Uriah Heep

7. I'm a raging liberal.
I absolutely despise anyone who tries to tell me what to do, anyone who would try to restrict my freedoms, and anyone who would push their religions on me. RAAAAAAAGE!!!

8. I have OCD, and it ruined my childhood.
So, I was a 12 year old minding my own business at a sunny day at school, then all of the sudden, I spot two of my friends peeing in a hallway. This triggered my OCD, and Iíve been a germophobe ever since (yes I know now that urine is sterile, you nimrod!). My problems eventually became so severe that I had to quit school, and I received home schooling from 7th to 10th grade (six hours of school each week, with no English lessons), causing me to loose contact with all of my friends. Iím grateful that I had videogames that I could play for escapism; otherwise Iíd probably gone completely mad. Luckily my condition bettered enough for me to join public High School, like a normal youth. My social skills werenít the best when I joined High School, and all of the students follow a culture that Iím completely unfamiliar with. But Iíve managed to adapt myself so I donít seem like an oddball to the others. Things are starting to improve for me now, and Iím hoping to join a university once Iím done with school.

9. I want to become an indie game developer.
Yeah, seeing games such as Braid, Castle Crashers, Cave Story and World of Goo, inspires me to create a game of my own. I have a lot of ideas in my head right now of what kind of game I would create. I suppose it would be Metroidvania style game, or an adventure game similar to the 2D Zeldaís. But Iíll probably never do it. Learning how to program seems like a complicated affair to me.

10. Iíve never consumed alcohol, done drugs, or smoked my entire life.
And Iím proud of it! Seriously, Iíve never understood these ďparty peopleĒ. Whatís the point in having fun if youíre not going to remember it the next day? Iíd rather find alternative ways of having fun.

Like videogames!

Hello thar! I am an 18 year old Norwegian currently living in a small and boring coastal fishing town. I can't wait to graduate from high school, so that I can move to a more urban area to study. My hopes is that I'll be able to study in a foreign university (hopefully somewhere in the US).

When I was a kid I used to blablablablablablablabla....
