Twitter / Newcomer Cheat Sheet / Usage Guidelines
Well, I've been coming to the site since before the redesign, but I only made an account and actually started posting about a year ago. Shortly afterward I stumbled into the user blog section when I accidentally posted my one and only blog. I say accidentally because I didn't realize that I had a high enough user-level for it to show up in the public feed. Anyway, when I noticed a comment on my blog, I became interested in what other people were writing about, and so the blog section is where I have spent the majority of my time on GIO since then.
I've contributed to a couple other people's blogs once or twice, and I'll comment occasionally, but mostly I still just browse and consider what other people have to say while maintaining a low profile. It has been pointed out that when I do comment, I am often willing to voice a negative opinion where others are not, and while it may just be that I'm nothing more than a cynical jerk, I'd like to think that truth is that I'm more interested in helping someone improve their writing or consider another viewpoint than I am in being liked. I'm probably just a jerk, though.
Oh yeah, I should also note that I tend to take long breaks from GIO and gaming in general, so if I disappear for a while, know that I'm not gone for good.
Hey everybody! I'm messyFishstick. I have been a game informer subscriber since fo ever. I found this site a year or so back and would visit it now and again. I recently joined because there looked to be some pretty interesting things going on here. I love all types of gaming from PC to the arcades. I'm pretty social and like to meet new people; so hit me up sometime to game, chat, draw cartoons, a friendly game of hide and go seek, or any other matters. I like friends... 8 P
nice to have you on GIO amigo :D
Welcome to the herd Fishstick! You'll have tons of fun here.
Hello everyone, I don't know if I should officially introduce myself or what. Not sure how active these groups actually are. My name is Jameson, I'm a husband, father, and just getting into grad school whilst trying to balance a job. As such, my time is a little limited. I love RPG's and Platformers (those being my introduction to gaming back in the days) and I'm a huge Halo fanboy. It's good to be here and I hope to be able to stick around for a bit!
Another old guy! Awesome. I, too, am married with kids. RPGs are probably my favorite genre. There's a few Halo fanboys around the site, too... Le Hannibal comes to mind. Welcome to the group!

I'm sure I've introduced myself before, but I'll do it again anyways! I'm onearmedwonder! As the name implies, I have one arm, but I'm still a huge gamer. For those who would like to know how I manage to play video games with one arm, there is a blog on my page. :)
Dude, I didn't know you only had one arm. That's awesome that you don't let it stop you from gaming. I don't know how I would manage without my gaming hands...
Thanks for the welcome! I'm probably not as old as you'd think; I'm only 25. Guess I got an early start on "adult" life.
Well, jby conventional standards its not old; I'm only 26. But on a site focused on video games... I would like to think that the majority of the members would be younger. I could be wrong though...
Ah you just seemed a little older :) I'm not ashamed at already having a daughter in the slightest. I would tend to agree that most appear to be a little younger.
