Thank you for visiting my site!

This site covers essays on my own scatter-brained opinions and perspectives on gaming and the games I play and (mostly) love.  I started gaming on the NES with Super Mario Bros., and the hobby has more or less been a big passion of mine since then.  I like to think I’m an open-minded person (or at least I try to be), so I play a wide variety of games.  Consequently, you may find my posts to be rather “eclectic” in the topics they cover.  It’s a bit all over the place. Topics I’m big on include indie games, PC and Steam gaming, Nintendo, handhelds, and retro games and gaming history.

For fun, here’s a list of the Top 50 games that have had the biggest impact on me and the platforms I played them on.  This list is currently a work in progress, and I plan to elaborate on it more later.  Right now, they are numbered in no particular order:

  1. Hi there! Great list of games. I can respect someone who puts Super Mario Bros. 3 at number 1, even if they are numbered in no particular order!

  2. Great list! Including Donkey Kong (GB) in the top 3 is a good choice that isn’t usually found in these kinds of list. I also approve of Hotel Dusk being on here, and I can see by your Kyle Hyde avatar that you must really enjoy the game!

    There has never been enough love for Jet Moto! Also I’m sending you a gift… the gift is a Steam key for the game I made. I’m going to hide it somewhere on your site. 😉


  5. This might sound like an odd question, but have you considered making a Twitter account?
