Buying a bad game out of hope

Why do I buy bad games? This is a question I often find bouncing around my head from time to time. And considering that yesterday, on a whim, I went out to my local Gamestop and bought...wait for it...ready...Musashi: Samurai Legend. It wa...

 
 
 
 
 
 

The Beastiary in All of Us

As I mostly play videogames of the RPG ilk, I've come across my fair share of beastiaries. These are, for those not in the know, graphically done tomes, containing a showcase of monsters your hero and his/her team have defeated so far along...

 
 
 

Active Time Events (ATE) Kill Me

This is the result of choosing wrongly. So, as I slowly inch my way towards saving up enough couch coins for an Xbox 360 I'm working through a big backlog of PS1 and PS2 games. Most of them are RPGs, and the one currently holding my atten...

 
 
 

I Put the Fear in Introductions

Well, this is my introduction post. To be honest, I'm quite scared. I feel all this pressure to "not suck!" that I had to double-check a few times that I'm here at Destructoid and not the Something Awful forums or whathaveyou. Anyways, I di...

 
 

About Raccoonusone of us since 12:18 PM on 10.31.2008

Name's Paul. New Jersey is my home, and autumn air is what I prefer to breathe.

I've been playing videogames ever since I unwrapped my very first console one Christmas, a Super Nintento Entertainment System, some many, many years ago. Since then, I've fallen in love with RPGs and JRPGs, platformers that feed my OCD, and watching other people play first-person shooters (I get dizzy if I try to play them myself). I like gaming, but I definitely don't love it as much as I used to. For that, let's blame the economy and/or dayjobs. Still, I do keep up on the new games and hope to eventually get a current-gen system (I'm thinking Xbox 360, mainly for Fable II and Oblivion).

Game Systems of Mine...
Playstation 2
Playstation 1 (Tried to sell it at a yard sale for $5, but no one wanted it so I'm sure it's in a box somewhere in my parents' garage.)
Super Nintendo Entertainment System (More yellow than a lemon, but the blasted thing still works. Games I have for it that proves I'm not a complete tool when it comes to selling/trading in classics are Super Metroid, Zelda: A Link to the Past, Killer Instinct [it's just so...black!], Jurassic Park, Madden '97, and Mario Paint [but I can't play it as I don't have the mouse thinger].
Nintendo DS

Clearing Out the Backlog On...
Final Fantasy 9

Top Five Albums I Can Listen to Over and Over...
Weezer - The Blue Album
Cursive - The Ugly Organ
Paul Simon - Graceland
Ryan Adams - Heartbreaker
The Beatles - Rubber Soul

Hmm...must think of what else I can put here that would be of interest to people.
