Right, I guess this is where I talk about myself and explain why I agreed to my boyfriend’s rather insane idea.

I’m 21 and as of the moment I am unemployed. When I started this blog I was on a course in a London college to get my NCTJ qualification so I could become a journalist. I quit this because I realised that this really was not for me, plus the course itself was piss-poorly organised and just plain lied in order to steal my money. Bastards.

I am a psychology graduate and haven’t really been that much of a gamer in the last 3 years.

I was truly addicted to video games between the years of 1997 and 2007. It really started when I got a PS1 for Christmas and I still really haven’t looked back. Granted I don’t play anywhere near as many games as I used to but I still do like to indulge a little bit.

Currently I own a Wii, XBox 360, DS and a laptop that overheats whenever I try to play Plants Vs. Zombies (blerg!) When I get my first real pay cheque I will be getting myself a PS3. I really want to play LittleBigPlanet, Heavy Rain and God Of War 3 and it is an essential expense for this blog *cough*.

I don’t really have a favourite genre. I would happily play most games as long as they don’t scare the bejesus out of me. There are plenty of games like that on this list… and I am really not looking forward to some of them. Especially Fatal Frame IV, even reading the blurb in the book gives me chills!

My list

Favourite game ever: The Sims 2 (simply because I lost so much of my life to it)

Favourite RPG: Fallout 3

Favourite Adventure: Grand Theft Auto IV

Favourite Strategy game: Kessen II

Favourite ‘God Game’: The Sims 2

Favourite Action game: Grand Theft Auto IV (well it IS an action-adventure)

Favourite FPS: Timesplitters: Future Perfect

Favourite Platform game: Super Mario Galaxy

Favourite Sports Game: SSX Tricky

Favourite Fighting Game: Tekken 3

Favourite Driving Game: Mario Kart Wii

Worst Game: Popstars (don’t worry, I rented it)

The List

Missing developer: Koei

Missing Series: Crash Bandicoot (the first one and the racing game were amazing)

Missing Game: Crash Bandicoot, Kessen II, Theme Hospital, Sim Tower, Mister Mosquito (it’s such a weird game that it should get there on originality alone)

Misrepresented series: Pokémon. I have no idea why Ruby/Sapphire is on there instead of the original Red/Blue (or Red/Green in Japan)

Overrepresented series: Mario… seriously… I know it’s good but still….
