Do me a solid? Check out my DeviantART
My name is David, and I find that to be a very boring name. You can call me Dave or David if you want, but I prefer the webhandle attached to this spiffy little man made of pixels. I'm an aspiring game designer who is looking to get into the actual design aspect of video games, and by actual design I mean plotting out levels, the development of story, planning encounters and puzzles, things like that. The really creative stuff that causes a game to be fun. I love to write above almost all things, so don't be surprised if you see me wandering around Barton Town from time to time to get my casual writing fix in a few choice roleplays. I also enjoy the occasional bit of good animation and have a fondness for a wide variety of music.
Gaming is a passion and lifestyle for me. From Dungeons and Dragons to World of Warcraft to God of War, American McGee's Alice, Deus Ex and Resident Evil to board games like Risk, Battleship, and even Monopoly. Games are my life. They are essential to all of us, even though they aren't the simple tools for learning that they were when man was oh so young. They make us happy, keep us entertained, and at times make us feel empowered. Games make us feel good, so the next time anyone tells you that games are stupid you make sure to let them know just how much of an idiot they are.
There is a lot more I could say about myself. I could go on and on about all the little details and intricacies, but if you were really that interested you would just ask me. So ask away, but bear in mind that I will want information in return. Call it equivalent exchange.
And because I just kinda feel like stealing the idea from my buddy Luke, here's some of my favorite quotes:
"I think the world would be a wholly better place if religion did not have a place within it." -Benjamin Franklin
"If the Christians do not respect our culture, then why should we respect their culture?" -Varg Vikernes
"It's hard to know what to do to oppose something because dissident voices are not tolerated in contemporary society." -Varg Vikernes
"I have no problems being self destructive if the whole thing is something that I like." -Frost
"Don't do anything by half. If you love someone, love them with all your soul. When you go to work, work your a** off. When you hate someone, hate them until it hurts." -Henry Rollins
"Nothing in the world is worth having or worth doing unless it means effort, pain, difficulty... I have never in my life envied a human being who led an easy life. I have envied a great many people who led diffcult lives and led them well." -Theodore Roosevelt
"Fix reason firmly in her seat, and call to her tribunal every fact, every opinion. Question with boldness even the existence of a God; because, if there be one, he must more approve of the homage of reason, than that of blindfolded fear." -Thomas Jefferson
"When people fear the government, there is tyranny. When government fears the people, there is liberty." -Thomas Jefferson
