Welcome to the beginning of The Ginge Gamer, a blog where I, a ginger-haired gamer, share my love for video games with you. Since I’m just beginning, this first post is going to be mostly introduction and the posting schedule, though Thursday will be the first official post!
So what can you expect?
At least once a week, I intend on uploading a post either about general gaming—be it on a series, a character, or a specific game or genre—or a ROM hack or bootleg. You’d be surprised what kinds of hacks there are around the Internet that aren’t Pokemon ROM hacks, though those are pretty abundant too.
Now, as this is a video game blog, I figured I’d wrap things up with a little of my own gaming history.
I’ve been playing video games since I was seven years old and my grandparents bought a Game Boy Advanced system (that I still own and yes, it still works). The first ever game I owned was based on The Scooby-Doo movie that released earlier that same year. However, the very first game I ever played was, I believe, Super Mario 64.
Since then I’ve moved on to other systems and game series, but I do tend to stick to Nintendo games. When I moved to college I brought with me a Wii Mini, a GameCube, and my PlayStation 2. I don’t play them as often as I’d like, but that’s mostly because I’m busy. (Being part of the Pokemon club will do that) I tend to play my PC games and my 3DS more often than not.
Some of the rarer games in my collection include The Legend of Zelda Collector’s Edition (with the case), a working copy of Pokemon Crystal, and not one but two copies of the old E.T. Atari 2600 game. I happened to have bought my father an Atari 2600 for Christmas and when I was searching for games I found three copies of E.T. and bought all of them. Of course I did give one to him because he raised me and I didn’t want to be selfish. They’re not worth much, but I like saying I have them.
