Introductions: Chris

Hey guys my name is Chris. I’m a bit late to the show but have been meaning to jump on board for quite some time now. I’ve been playing video games since I was about three years old so I love to see games evolve, while also having deep respect for the classics. People worry about rose tinted glasses when it comes to old games but I usually don’t have to fear it because I am constantly playing my childhood games and see how they compare with today’s.

My first gaming console was the TurboGrafx-16 system, but don’t worry about that too much, I don’t know much about it either. I then moved on to the SNES, N64, GameCube, Xbox, Wii, and the Xbox 360. I also have had a long history with computer games.

I happen to be brothers with one of the site’s co-founders, Ryan, but that definitely doesn’t mean we have the same views, but we do share the same respect for video games. While I enjoy the Xbox 360, I find my favorite games on the computer and older systems. At the time of writing this, I am playing through every console Zelda game and loving it. Even though the Wii is bashed on by hardcore gamers quite a bit, I find one of my favorite games to play with friends on it (Super Smash Bros. Brawl). My favorite games would have to be The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask and Starcraft 2. This doesn’t mean that I dislike first person shooters or any other genre though. I enjoy a huge variety of games as you could guess from the huge differences in my two favorites.

I feel like I bring a different perspective to the site because I am a different type of gamer from both Steve and my brother. Like Ryan, I also try to get better at a game all the time and am never satisfied with my current skill, while still loving casual games where competitiveness does not exist.

I noticed the other contributors of the site have an explanation of their Gamer Tag on the Xbox 360, but sadly I do not have much of one. I simply tried my normal aliases and none worked, so I thought that Rusty Spatular would be a humorous substitute, somewhat playing on Mr. Krabs’ way of saying spatula.

I am currently attending UCCS and studying the abstract major of Undecided.
