|GOOD NEWS: "First-Person Shooter" are now my primary game genre...||January 6, 2013, 11:29 am|
...and DOOM II is now my DEFINITIVE Favorite Game of All Time!
The only thing that was keeping it from being my favorite game was Super Street Fighter II Turbo and my love for fighting games. This changed after a brief visit to Shoryuken.com, where, even though I can beat the game and am pretty good at it, I was basically told "YOUR SKILL IS NOT ENOUGH". And then they had to throw in "Maybe a desk job would fit you better".
Now I've been playing and loving video games since I was 5 years old, so the fact they think I shouldn't even be playing them pretty much sealed their doom (no pun intended). I'll still play fighting games, but if I had to change my Favorite Game of All Time for any reason, it will never be a fighting game again. Besides, there's a LOT of classic and a few modern shooters I DO enjoy playing.
To Doomworld, where you're free to love what you do and not have to have the skill or the experience to do it.
