Greeting Lusipurr.com readers! I am the newest reader to sell my soul to Lusipurr. For the eternity that it is in his possession he has demanded that I bring you new posts every Friday. You may remember me as ‘The reader who donated and won a game’. I have been following the site since the first podcast, though I listened to Lusipurr while he was on RPGamer’s podcast. I soon tired of stalking Lusipurr across the internet and decided to try my hand at writing for him instead.

And now a little background on myself: when I was a child my parents owned a stationery shop which over time started stocking video games. Eventually the stationery was removed in favour of only stocking video games, consoles and peripherals. Throughout the 16-bit era I had access to every game released within the last few months, as well as a healthy selection of second-hand titles. When it came time to close the doors for the last time in 1999 I was well and truly hooked.

The first game I purchased with my own money was Pokemon Red. I had already found that role-playing games were my favourite genre after playing through all 3 Shining Force games on the Sega Mega Drive. Living in England I missed out on some of the better RPGs of the era, such as Chrono Trigger, Final Fantasy IV & VI and Earthbound. When the PlayStation 2 was released I was tired of not having access to many games unreleased in Europe. I bought a PS2 from the states and began importing as many PS1 RPGs as I could find, eventually importing PS2 RPGs and playing them months ahead of their release in Europe. I would describe these as my hardcore years, when all my free time was spent playing games. Eventually I met a girl and settled down and soon my budget had priorities other than video games.

Currently I own a PC, PS3, DS, Wii and a PSP. I spend most of my gaming time playing World of Warcraft while streaming Netflix on my PS3. I enjoy progressing through heroic mode raids a couple of nights each week, otherwise I can usually be found dominating the glyph market on the auction house. I have traveled to stay with friends in other countries that I have met in Warcraft, even flying to the Netherlands to attend a guild meet-up of our 10-man raid team that included players from five different countries. Some of my fondest memories of the last few years come from meeting and spending time with people who I got to know in-game.

I still enjoy playing RPGs on consoles, though now I usually play with my kids. My son often provides me with a free level-grinding service in the recent Final Fantasy games. We spend many rainy afternoons together playing the recent Sonic the Hedgehog games. In a few years they will both be able to play and appreciate the games I had when I was their age. Will they enjoy them as much as I did? I believe that it will be a true test of the classics if the next generation cherish them as much as the last.
