Welcome, my dear friends. This is my bio, where I get to tell you all my secrets and whatnot, right? Well, I'm not much of a story-teller, as my life is pretty much the same as any nerd from high school. So, why not just talk about videogames, then?
I was born in 1997, June 5th, and 6 years later I got my first PS2 (I think for my birthday). I was so happy I rushed to put in the first game I ever played: Scooby-Doo: Night of 100 Frights (still a classic to me, even though GameInformer only gave it a 6.5. =o) I showed everyone, even my babysitter, who all weren't as estatic as I was. This is when my addiction to videogames began.
As I grew older, I started to play games that were probably to mature for me at the time, such as Ratchet and Clank: Up Your Arsenal, but I grew used to them, and they were some of my fondest games. I remeber playing with my little brother as we took down giant Tyranoides and stuff (well, him watching, mostly), as well as designing theme parks, driving cars and hitting people as the simpsions, and burning Gnocs as a young puple dragon.
I've always been a Sony boy since my first videogame, and when I got a PSP for chirstmas back in 2005 and the PS3 was annouced, I was as glad as a beaver in a forest. Now, while the PSP wasn't so hot, it was still a good system with a few good games (mostly RPG's), but the PS3 was the thing that got me going. (I did get one nitendo system, the Wii, with some pretty good games like SSBB and SMG1 & 2, but my fondest memories are on PS3)
I can't remeber my first game on the PS3, but I remeber playing Ratchet and Clank future: Tools of Destruction and Uncharted: Drake's Fortune, which brought me back to my days of blowing up stuff and exploring (sort of) massive worlds.
As I got more games, I had a blast with the growing realism and advanced options with my growing ability to play video games effectivly. There have always been a few bumps on the road, but they are still fun in their own way.
Currently, I'm still playing my PS3, while waiting to exchange my PSP for the Vita, and my Wii and PS2 collect dust (I really should play them more). But, what about Gameinformer you ask?
Well, I first got a Gameinformer when I bought a game at gamestop in 2006. At first glance I knew I was in love, with it's sleek cover and beautiful artwork. I think the first game that was on the cover was the "BioShock 2", which looked like a very interesting game, and spiked my intrest. I read every magazine that I got, except for the ones I missed because I didn't pay for a few months.
Other gaming magizines just weren't the same, the layouts weren't as easy or as fun to read.
I didn't learn about Gameinformer online till about 2007, which was something I thought wouldn't be as awesome as the magizine itself. Boy, was I wrong. The news is constantly updated and sometimes funny, the videos are hilarious, the blogs are well written, and there is very few trolls unlike some other unlucky websites. I visit here everyday to get my well written news about videogames and enjoy some time with Dan, Tim, Phil, Reiner, all the other employees, and the great fan base.
Thank you all for reading this entire thing, and I hope you have a great day.
