Why I Hate Nintendo

I have been very vocal about my hate of Nintendo. I thought I would point out why. Let's turn the clock back to the 1990's, during the golden age of Nintendo which I would like to attribute to the Nintendo 64. Great games, which transp...

 
 
 

Nintendo is Dead to Me

Before being bombarded with legions of Nintendo fans, I want to set one thing straight: I am not a hater by nature. I stuck by Nintendo longer than anyone would want to stick with any one brand or gaming company, even long after I wasn't ge...

 
 
 

How Well Do You Know Your Games?

I was wondering, since we all game, how much of the facts of our favorite pastime do we really know? You may translate the results in whatever way you wish. You might say you're a knowledgeable individual when it comes to gaming, or that yo...

 
 
 

Teh Bias: Respect Me!

There are many games that I enjoy, and many that I disliked. Often the games that I end up disliking are the same ones that the majority of gamers like. I dislike Guitar Hero, Rock Band, Kirby's Epic Yarn, all annual sports games and the m...

 
 
 

Teh Bias: Let the Classics Be

I have a confession to make: When it comes to my entertainment, I like to remember what year I'm in. You'll rarely see me go back to play a game that was released over five years ago, and almost never play a game that was released over ten ...

 
 
 

On Worms and War

One of the greatest classic franchises is about to make a comeback, on August 26, through steam. I'm sure you've all seen this post. My stance toward this development was pretty much set from the moment I heard about it. I'm getting this g...

 
 
 
 
 

Islam and Gaming

I just read a post by Jim Sterling regarding Islamic ideologies when it comes to gaming. As a Muslim myself, I felt it was necessary to set things straight. Please take the time to go through a small lesson in Islam. If you wish, think of ...

 
 
 

Gaming in the Future

I read an article in another website about what video game questions could be answered by 2040. I thought of compiling my own collection of predictions, so here goes. By the year 2040... Advances in technology made it possible for gamers ...

 
 
 
 

Who Do You Write Like?

I found this interesting website, which compares your writing with that of established authors. I tried it out with all my blog posts here, and got amusing results: H.P Lovecraft Kurt Vonnegut James Joyce Dan Brown Margaret Atwood But onl...

 
 

About SAMA1984one of us since 3:01 AM on 01.11.2010

I'm a lifelong gamer who has enjoyed video games through the thick and thin of my life. I'm also a person who speaks my mind often, which is why I chose to start this blog here where others can discuss what I have to say.

Originally a Nintendo fan, I've turned my back on it when they turned their collective backs on their old following. Currently, my Wii is still connected to my TV and I play with it from time to time.

Had an Xbox 360, which got the red ring five times before I put it out of its misery, and got an Elite, which got the E74 error and couldn't be replaced or fixed. Currently, it's on a shelf in some game repair shop, collecting dust, and that doesn't look like it's about to change anytime soon.

Have a PS3, which is going strong. It's currently my primary console.

I also have a DS and am planning to pick up a PSP as soon as Valkyria Chronicles 2 comes out. And a PC that runs Crysis, Supreme Commander and World of Warcraft, often at the same time.

You see, my posts may get responses suggesting I'm a fanboy or a hater, which is why I clarify this here: I tried all consoles, and didn't cling onto them when they started to fail, either in company support or in hardware/software.

My favorite genres are real time strategy and first person shooters, and I often turn to role-playing games and fighting games, with a bit of platforming on the side.

I hate, HATE music games. I love the songs you can play in them, but I hate the concept.
