Veteran Member - Level 13
I've never really been much of a "platformer" gamer. I never played the various Mario games; Donkey Kong was enjoyable at the time, but I hold no real fond memories of it other than as just one of the many coin-op games I played as a kid.

Those who have been following this blog know that I'm not an Activision-hater. In fact, I've come to its defense a few times. Somebody complaining about CoD being run into the ground? I'm there defending it. Complaints about Bobby Kotick's latest news-making statements? Ok, I'm not always there, but I do occasionally point out when he's been taken out of context.
