Been gaming my whole life, and that probably won't change.
But I suppose I'll actually give a right proper bio.
The short story: I just like to enjoy myself, be that playing games or not.
If you still care for some reason, then feel free to read on.
At times I'm a musician, a writer at others, a film critic rarely, but always a gamer. Truth be told, there are few forms of entertainment I don't enjoy. Be it a novel, game, movie, TV show, comic book -- I really don't care what manner of media it is, so long as it's entertaining.
I got into gaming somewhere around the age of 4 with the release of Pokemon Red for the Game Boy. My uncle, aunt, and cousin all had the game and figured I'd like it too. I did. I still do. I've gotta give them credit for my enduring interest in gaming to this day, and for the fact that I have such eclectic taste in...well, everything. From my uncle introducing me to beat-em ups with our marathons in Turtles in Time and Final Fight, to my aunt showing me the joys (pains?) of level-grinding in Final Fantasy VII, to my cousin teaching me to do a barrel roll. Or maybe that was Peppy...ah well.
And it looks like those eclectic tastes ended up spilling over into darn-near everything else I hold interest in. Music? I'll listen to anything from Nirvana to De La Soul to Nobuo Uematsu. Movies? One of my favorite films is Seven Samurai, another is Robin Hood: Men in Tights, and another is Inception. All different kinds of movies. Even in books, I'm all over the place; be it the fantasy works of R.A. Salvatore and T.A. Barron or the military fiction of Tom Clancy or even biographies. I also have a love for animation, with a very high regard for the works of Studio Ghibli, Bruce Timm, and Greg Weisman in particular. I'm just on everything.
days I may be hunting for treasure in Uncharted, reliving the age of
MetroidVania in Shadow Complex, or shocking the @#$% out of folks in
inFamous, but it all started with a few pocket monsters and some 8-bit
So there. If you, for whatever odd reason, actually read all of that, you now know something about me. Or maybe you know less than you did before reading it. *shrugs* That's life.
