Hailing from the United Kingdom, I got into gaming when i got the SEGA Mega Drive II for my ninth birthday on April 4th 1995 so I have been video gaming for over 15 years, so with my blogs known as The Dob i bring a wealth of gaming experience from the golden age of modern day gaming, The 8-Bit and 16-Bit era which coincidentally was my first ever video game blog on this website. Essentially i am still a newcomer to the video game blogs and this way i feel i'm one step closer to being hired by any video game website or even a magazine, then again i may not which is probably the case. But what the hey, i enjoying posting my thoughts on this website and as of the 01/12/10 i did my first video game review entitled "WWF Attitude".
Now with my blogs, they range from trips down memory lane to video game reviews to rants and to anything that pops into my head as materials, i normally write up my blog on MS Word before copying and pasting it, adding Blog headers (which i make by myself ) pictures relevant and the occasional video and once that's done i proof read and correct any grammar error's, etc before posting for your enjoyment.
Some of my favourite video games of all time, from past to present are: Super Mario Bros 1,2,3 and Super Mario World, Chrono Trigger, Earthworm Jim, Boogeyman, Space Invaders, Pac-Man, Donkey Kong Country, Super Mario 64, Donkey Kong 64, Mario Kart 64, Goldeneye 007, Pokemon Red, Blue, Yellow, Crystal, Emerald, Stadium 1 & 2 and Snap, Super Smash Bros, Ninja Goemon, Yoshi's World, Duke Nukem 3D, WWF Attitude, WWF No Mercy, Abe's Oddysee, Abe's Exoddus, Carmageddon, Resident Evil 1, 2 and 3, Sonic The Hedgehog 1,2,3 & Knuckles, Sonic Spinball, Golden Axe, Streets of Rage 1,2, and 3, Metal Gear Solid 1,2,3 and 4, Rocket Knight Adventures, Silent Hill, Blood Omen, Legacy of Kain and Soul Reaver series, Dino Crisis 2, Uncharted 1 and 2, Assassin's Creed 1 and 2, Tekken 1,2,3,4,5,6, Street Fighter 2 and 4, Heavy Rain, Yakuza 1,2 and 3, The Godfather, Scarface: The World is yours, Castlevania:Symphony of the Night, God of War 1,2 and 3 and many more but as you can see I'm a well rounded video gamer.
