    An intro from Sunny California

    Well howdy folks, I'm Naet. I live in sunny California and I have been gaming for much too long.

    At a young age, I was introduced to some of my father's favorite games from both the NES and SNES (Super Mario and all the classics). From there I expanded my gaming palate through... whatever method I could. After years of on and off gaming, I finally became a legit gamer, only after attending my first launch. Of the PS2. It wasn't something new to me, the gaming lifestyle, but I finally realized that it was something I wanted to stick with.

    Gaming at a young age, contrary to popular belief, led me to be a pretty good student, but more importantly, led me to a love of writing. Starting with petty fan fics (I scare myself thinking about what I wrote) and evolving into some original stories and even some video game reviews, I began to realize what exactly I wanted to do with myself.

    I realized the simple equation which would make up my life.
    Unlike most people who wish to chase some crazy dream, I went with what would make me happy. Writing + gaming = video game journalism. It might be a bit hard to break into the industry, but I'm still dreaming.

    Currently, I am writing for my school's newspaper, writing reviews and expanding my knowledge of the journalistic world.

    And so all of that led me here. Destructoid.

    I currently own a PS3, PSP and still own that PS2 which helped me realize what I want to do. I also own a gaming PC and have access to all other systems through friends and family. I find myself perusing most gaming sites these days, constantly checking out reviews and what's going on these days.

    Let's see what happens.

    Any response is welcome.

    Welcome to the Forums. Nice intro. I'm really fucking tired, but someone will come along and do a better job of greeting you.

    Again, welcome.

    It's all good. I'm tired myself, dunno why I'm up. Thanks for the reply, nonetheless.

    I spent 2 months in California. It was very nice, and I had sex there.

    Baby Wombat approves of your arrival.

    I used to write for my school newspaper too, and somehow I ended up here. Get out while you still can! If it's already too late for that then welcome.

    I used to work as an illustrator/humorist for the school newspaper. I could have done so for the university paper but decided not to. Probably because I got tired of my characters and didn't have the training to do anything else.

    Anyway, welcome. If you like writing, I do hope you have a c-blog account. Having more trained/experienced writers makes our lives much more pleasant.
