All About differentiation
Wow, it has been about two and a half years since I first posted on Gamespot. Before that I just lurked around, reading the editor reviews. But man, time flies and lots has changed since then. For one, I just started blogging a month ago - except that I got tired of it so I haven't been posting regularly now...hmm, don't know if I'll actually continue. When I blog, I try to make it the best post ever, to really make it worthwhile, but oh the time and effort I have to put into it
Gaming to me in the past meant PC all the way, I was anti-console because games were more fun to me on PCs (the accuracy and online excitement of Counter-Strike, the grandness of Rome: Total War - yeah I've yet to see that kind of action on a console!). Over the course of time, I got fed up with games not being able to run on my computer, especially not at the highest settings, having to always upgrade hardware, etc, so I got myself an XBox, and about half a year ago, a PS3. What's even more strange to us gamers is that I'm less and less interested in games now. I just turned 25 a month ago, but the average age of gamers is 33 (so 'they' say). Yep, found myself not spending much time on Gamespot (as little as maybe 1 visit every several weeks) and more focused on work and non-gaming activities, which is good in a way, because I was a gaming addict. Gaming can ruin lives as I can attest to personally!
So I just did my 106 game review. It's a special # to me and it was a perfect time for me to announce that I'll no longer post reviews or be active in Gamespot. Aww I know, but I'll still be around once in a while, and who knows? Anyway, I've enjoyed my time on Gamespot, inserting my sick humour in my reviews, and seeing the amount of gamers who don't share the same thoughts, joining unions, tracking friends, etc. Thanks everyone for adding me to your tracking list and reading my reviews. Keep the gaming community strong, until next time!
28Dec 05Hello all, this is my 1st blog of my life. I heard about these things a long time ago but always thought of them as insignificant in that who wants to read commoners' opinions? However they have claimed more ground and it's like a personal diary, and I was never good at keeping one. The time is what gets me. Don't be surprised if I don't post anything on here for a while, despite my reviews. I just recently got involved in the Gamespot community even though I registered over a year ago - that I don't even remember. I had a feeling that I may have registered and checked myself while browsing, and here I am, popping in and out. Ever get that feeling when you go to a website that asks for your email/name/password, you're like yeah I think I did register but I'm not sure? I get that feeling all the time. One last thing, my grading scale is tougher than most, but not too harsh. I expect excellence, and chances are no game will receive a "perfect" from me, and the chances of me giving out a "superb" would be very, very rare. I'm not like most people, who think Halo is the begin all - end all uber game of all time, I expect excellence not mediocracy.
