Hello, I'm ChaseS19. I've actually been following GB since 2011 but never engaged with the forums until now.

About me:

My first video game was Myst.

I am a chef in Queens, NY where I also live, but I'm originally from Arkansas.

My top three video games are Riven, Metal Gear Solid 3 and Bloodborne.

I'm also a life long avid fan of Wonder Woman.

My favorite GB video is toss up Unprofessional Friday where Drew showed off Lego Island and the Halloween one where Jeff was dressed as a Penguin.

Here is a little something about me.

I had to re-read the opening sentence of this thread 3 times before I made it past the first exclamation point.

Now I'm just feeling kinda' let down when I had no expectations in the first place.

This threads called introduce yourself because obviously

Were going to be fucken! introducing ourselves!

Tell us a little bit about you & what you like to do

Tell us what you like & what you think

Doesn't matter if its about videogames or anything els!

Hi, I am Matt. I actually really like trolling and am writing a book on the subject. I like to occasionally take breaks from trolling to play video games. I'd probably say my favorite method of trolling is playing 'ignorant'. It is where you basically pretend like you have no idea what is going on and just react accordingly. As for how I troll... I am a defensive troll as opposed to an offensive troll. I will never create a topic with the intent of trolling but will gladly drop a deuce in someone else's topic without thinking twice.

I am 32... I really have no hobbies. I have been gaming since December 1990 when we got our NES and my household was an SNES and Genesis household. Got into PC gaming in 1998 with the rise of Half Life and never really gave myself fully to a console since. MMORPGs stole a good chunk of my life. From 2002 to about 2008 I was a 36 hour a day MMORPG player... mostly EQ and WOW. In 2011 or '10 I got an XBOX 360 with the sole purpose to play Skyrim because it was going to be cheaper than getting a new PC. I got all 1000 achievement points in two weeks of playing and abruptly stopped playing my 360 and never went back... haven't even seen the new content that has been released over the years.

Outside of gaming a good portion of my life is dedicated to lucid dreaming... I have been doing that since I was 17 to great success. Also I used to suffer from depression... used to being the operative word. I am a depression survivor and unbelievably fortunate to have defeated the disease.

A cool fact about me... I have been introducing myself in topics like these since the 90's but never once have ever read a post in an introduction topic outside the OP... I just post and leave, like a ghost.

I'm just a run of the mill Canadian who likes Star Wars, Queen, and the prospect of one day joining the video game industry. Have been following Jeff and the gang since first discovering them on Gamespot in the early 2000s. Couldn't tell you why it has taken me this long to fully join the community, but glad that I finally have.

My name is Clayton. When I was maybe seven, my folks bought me my first console - a Playstation - to help improve my dexterity and hand-eye coordination (I have very mild cerebral palsy.) I think my first game was Crash Bandicoot, which I used to play it with my dad all the time after school.

I love the Oddworld games, Dark Souls, Shovel Knight, and Don't Starve. Embarrassing video game confession: I've never really played Final Fantasy VII. I also love 8-bit games. I bought an NES and learned to swap out the pin connector so I could play the classics in their original format. Man, decades later and those games still hold up.

My other interests include hobby board and card games, music (I want to go to music school to sing classical,) and languages.

The folks here have all been really nice. I feel like I've found the one corner of the internet not rife with total dicks, so thanks for that.

I go by many aliases online. Preferring not to use one more than once. The internet is a very unforgiving place.

My favourite genres of music are J-Core, Makina, Hardstyle, and Denpa music. But I also really appreciate nearly all genres of Industrial Music and also Punk. Particularly Hardcore Punk(Screamo, ect.), EBM(Aggrotech, ect.), and Post-Industrial genres(like Neofolk and Martial Industrial).

But a lot of people don't like music genres, with the claim that it detracts from "simply enjoying good music". So, some of my favourite artists, musicians, groups, and bands are, Storm of Capricorn, kors k, DJ Noriken, DJ Shimamura, Massive New Krew, :of the wand and the moon:, Portraits of Past, nanahira, pigmhall, Mitchie M, Anomie, H.E.R.R., Sol Invictus, Amduscia, Wynardtage, God Module, Koja Yukino, -45, momobako, Welle:Erdball, Coaltar of the Deepers, BLANKFIELD, Nitro Mega Prayer, Feindflug, Lion of the North, Funeral Diner, Endzweck, and Narziss.

But I'm definitely a fan of a lot more than that. That should definitely give you an idea of my musical tendencies.

As you might expect, I'm also a fan of video games. My favourite genres are JRPGs and Life Simulators.

I also really like anime and anime culture, like manga, light novels, doujin games, figurines, ect.

My favourite anime of all time are: Fushigiboshi no Futagohime, Ojamajo Doremi, Lucky Star, Yume no Crayon Oukoku, Fushigi Mahou Fun Fun Pharmacy, GeGeGe no Kitaro, Kamichu!, WataMote, Honey and Clover, Kaiba, Hare Nochi Guu, Kino's Journey, Time of Eve, Kemono Friends and Nichijou.

I'm not totally closed minded, I also like several Western cartoons, such as: My Little Pony, DuckTales, Powerpuff Girls, Star vs. the Forces of Evil, Steven Universe, Lilo and Stitch, Tangled and Scooby Doo.

And other Asian animation, such as Hello Jadoo and Yobi the Five Tailed Fox.

My favourite video game characters are: Toadette, Roll, Jill Dozer, Princess Daisy, Colette Brunel, Diancie, Sylveon, Clefairy, Iris the Pokemon Trainer, Acerola the Pokemon Trainer, Hapu the Pokemon Trainer, Bridget of Guilty Gear, Cirno, Suika Ibuki, Nitori Kawashiro, Presea Combatir, Genis Sage, Fon Master Ion, Mint Adenade, Suzu Fujibayashi, Meredy, Lilligant, Bellossom, Vaporeon, Brionne, Manaphy, Goombella, Lady Bow, Nanamo Ul Namo, Tataru Taru, Krile Mayer Baldesion, Shantotto, Star Sibyl, Tails Miles Prower, Agatha the Pokemon Trainer, Drawcia, and Hina the Hibachi.

I am a quad amputee gamer, lost my hands and feet about three years ago due to pneumonia. What i did not lose was my passion for video games. I can play most games that don't require use of the trigger buttons. Where there's a will, there's a way. I also have a YouTube channel where I do videogame documentaries.
