Hello. I'm parsleyboots. Have been from a very young age. (It's a nickname my grandfather gave me long before I started playing video games, never mind the existence of the Internet. If you think it's lame, you should hear my sister's.)
I live in Japan at the moment, and have done for the last five years, although probably not for much longer. I don't mean I have a terminal disease or anything, just that I'll be moving back to my home country, the UK, soon.
I've been eating the Destructoid feed for a while now, since I started using an aggregator, but was prompted to register today because I wanted to share this with everybody (and already have in the Social Lounge):
Parsleyboots is the greatest fucking nickname EVER! Seriously, that SO sounds like some bizarre pet name I'd come up with for a girlfriend. You automatically just became cooler than everyone else on the forums. Congrats.
Ah yes, the games. Well, the first game I ever played was probably Chuckie Egg on a BBC Micro at school. The first games I ever owned and played to death were Tetris and Super Mario Land for the Game Boy (not including an LCD racing game, or Zelda Game & Watch). Other major obsessions have included Super Mario World, Street Fighter II and its amendments, Zelda, Metal Slug, Virtua Fighter, Castlevania SOTN, Super Metroid, Mario Kart, Enthusia, Project Gotham Racing, Ridge Racer, Final Fantasy VII, etc. I could go on. Recently, I have been mostly playing SD Gundam G Generation Portable.
