I made an account here because I miss being part of a forum community. I used to frequent the Newgrounds forums, and I currently frequent the 4chan boards (just /mu/ and /b/), but just as a lurker. My favorite game series are the typical stuff for teenage guys like me to like, and such as MGS, Pokemon, Ace Attorney, Mass Effect, Dragon Age, etc. etc.
I currently am only in possession of a laptop as a video game platform though, due to my PS3 being broken and my DS being caught in a time-warp. And since my laptop isn't exactly powerful I can't run any newfangled PC games on it, just emulators. I mainly use PSX, and I use my PS3 controller as a controller and plug in my laptop to my TV, so it's kind of like I'm actually playing a PS1 minus the ominous whirring, the fear of it suddenly catching fire, and the arbitrary consciousness that there would suddenly be a hardware failure. So I'm pretty much only limited to the previous generations of video games right now. So if you have any suggestions for nice video games to check out, please, recommend me some!
Aside from video games I really love listening to and making music, watching movies, and reading and trying to write books/literature/whatever. I hope this community will give me plenty of memories just like Newgrounds did, and it won't randomly spiral into an unspoken purgatory. I never really left the forums there but it's kind of getting strangely stale and inactive there, and all of the people I've come to know there are getting up and leaving.
Again, hello Destructoid!
