New People, Please Introduce Yourselves

It's really nice to see some new folks here. Please tell us a little about yourself. Where are you from? What do you do for a living? What are your hopes and dreams?

I think it would be nice for this to be a sticky.

Re: New People, Please Introduce Yourselves

I guess I'll start. Qikdraw told me about this place on another forum, so I figured I'd check it out. I'm primarily a PC gamer, but I also own a 360. Oh, and I'm an absolute sports nut.

Re: New People, Please Introduce Yourselves

Thought I'd drop in and say hello

Been following Brad Gallaway for a while on Twitter and browsing the site a lot so it made sense.

I'm Jen, I'm a Brit (don't hold it against me ) and 24.
My day job is working in Blockbuster (you can hold that against me ) while I finish up my Masters dissertation, and I also write for a few different gaming sites: mainly reviews but also some articles on a variety of different subjects.

I've got all the current generation consoles and game on my PC a bit although mainly just MMORPGs these days. Basically I'll play pretty much anything and everything but my favourite is the RPG genre.

Bit of a lurker on forums but I read plenty

Re: New People, Please Introduce Yourselves

Good to see some new posters! Hope more of you lurkers decide to join in the discussion. Being on GameCritics since 2001 (2000 maybe?) I can say it is one of my favorite sites anywhere on the web. It is the only site I post to on any regular basis and I always feel welcome on the forums. The regulars always provide a thoughtful, respectful conversation about videogames (and other topics should you so choose). So, once again, I hope more of you lurkers become regulars. Welcome!

Re: New People, Please Introduce Yourselves

Hi all,

I've been reading Gamecritics since the past 2 or 3 years and have finally decided to join the forums. I'm Portuguese and currently living in Spain. I've been playing games since my 5 years old and I'm particularly found of old school adventure games and all things Nintendo but I'm really eclectic. The last great game I played? Probably, Braid.

See you in the forums

Re: New People, Please Introduce Yourselves

I'm Eaps. I'm an opera singer (a tenor) and I have a day job where I work with Chi. He got me hooked up with the site.

I had to take a hiatus from any serious gaming over the last couple of years due to the singing training but now I'm getting a chance now that I'm a bit more settled down.

It's been great to follow the posts and discussions here. Glad to be a part of it!

Re: New People, Please Introduce Yourselves

Hi,

My name is Ayush and I am from Zatun, a video game development company in India.

We have developed a 2D action adventure arcade game for PC titled The Legend of Vraz ". This game was created using the Microsoft XNA framework and features an enthralling gameplay of 6-8 hours set in exotic locales.

We have our in-game videos and screenshots online at: http://zatungames.com/

Here's a marketing tip: introduce yourself to the community and participate in forums before pimping out your game. You'd get better results that way.

Re: New People, Please Introduce Yourselves

I'm guilty of lurking I guess.

Thanks to the Halo 3 review I stumbled over this site and thanks to the Halo 3 review and some others I read then I decided to stick around a bit. Because of the writing and since I felt it refreshing to see a site using other numbers than 8, 9 and 9,5 to rate games.

I'm currently only having a PC and a DS to play on, using it mainly for WoW and Professor Layton respectively. I'm still too cheap to buy a PS, not because the PS would be too expensive but because I don't have a TV, therefore I would have to buy one as well...

I live in the Netherlands and do my PhD in electrical engineering here (about 1 more year to go).

The whole doing PhD is the reason not buying a telly, since that would be a huge timesink for me and I'm already busy restraining myself from playing too much on the computer (I should cancel WoW again I guess).
