Okay, you caught me. I am a Pokemon NERD. I play the games, and can recognize all 493 Pokemon on sight. I am an avid collector of gaming hardware, yet am often thwarted by cash-lessness. I so need to take up a job at GameStop.
I don't only play Pokemon games, though. Other favorites include
Jak and Daxter
Ratchet and Clank
(note that J&D came BEFORE R&C. Jak rocks.) They really need to put the above characters in Super Smash Bros. Wonder what their final smashes would be?
Although I consider myself a gamer, I am certainly not a hardcore one. I tend to always put difficulty settings on easy, and use cheat codes to make it even easier whenever I can. After a while I will turn the cheats off for a bit, because I like to have an appreciation for the true nature of the game.
I refuse to play a game that is a sequel without playing its predecessor. As a result, I have not played any Final Fantasy games up 'till recently. Who knew each one was its own contained story? (not me, of course)
