When I was eight, I received a yellow GameBoy Color for Christmas (it's important you know it was yellow). I played Blue Version, Links Awakening, and Mario Land II -six gold coins- everywhere I went and will forever cherish those games (especially the soundtracks - especially Pallet Town).
For my tenth birthday my dad bought me a Sega Dreamcast while my friends got PS2's and Xbox's (you picked right, huh dad). So I played the crap out of games like Pro Skater 2, Crazy Taxi, Hydro Thunder, Tee Off, and Ready 2 Rumble (which actually wasn't so bad). From then on my interest in videogames died at the same rate as Sega's console market, except for the occasional rooftop-rocket launching-homicidal rampages in GTA3 on my PC (still never gets old).
Around eighth grade, all my friends were becoming lords of some game called Halo 2 and I could hardly grasp a controller (talk about embarrassing). The taunting for not being able to walk and look around at the same time is something that may never heal. That's why in 07' I bought a 360 so I could shove Halo 3 in all their 6th-console-generation faces and talk some smack (who's popular now?!). But since then I've greatly exceeded my friends in videogaming, and perhaps by too much. Today, I have a 360 slim, Kinect, over fifty games, 40,000+ gamerscore, loads of peripherals, and a 46" (god, imagine if I could have all that time and money back). That's my rather lengthy gaming background.
When I'm not playing games, I study, run long distances, play bass, hike, and enjoy scenic photography. I graduated from high school in 2010, and am now in college finding out what I want to do with the rest of my life. I am 19.
I check this website nearly everyday because video game news fascinates me. Friend me and we'll talk video games or whatever.
