Writer's Block: Portal 17

Do you think video games will still be popular in 15 years? How do you think they'll change?
They'll definitely still be popular, but considering how popular video games like Halo, Modern Warfare, Call of Duty, etc. are nowadays, I suspect that in 15 years, almost all video games that aren't gory will either become gory or stop being made. :(

I kind of doubt that. I mean, games like Final Fantasy are wildly popular, and although they're violent, they're certainly not gory. And Nintendo consistently makes very popular games, but since their programs usually lack the realism of, say, Playstation, they're not gory at all. Prime example: Kirby's Epic Yarn.

I didn't say that every wildly popular video game is gory right now. Or even that a lot of them are. I just said that this would probably be the case 15 years from now because, even now, a lot of gory video games such as Halo are wildly popular.

And Nintendo consistently makes very popular games, but since their programs usually lack the realism of, say, Playstation, they're not gory at all. Prime example: Kirby's Epic Yarn.

Well, duh. I've been playing non-gory video games ever since I first played Mario at age 4, but since apparently there's going to be an M-rated Sonic game, I have the feeling that probably half (or, at the very least, a quarter) of the video game franchises that aren't gory in 2011 will be in 2026.

If I had to pick six words to describe myself, I would panic and ask someone for help because I am so downright random and weird that there is no possible way to describe myself or my journal in only six words.

So here's a list of things you'll probably see in this journal, in no particular order:
- Posts about my life
- Posts about my worrying about being disliked for any number of reasons
- Posts about the fact that I'm trying to fix all the things that are messed up in my LJ and DW and catch up on lots of websites that I'm behind on reading
- Backups of my posts on Miiverse now that Miiverse is discontinued... so if you want to know what some random guy was saying about New Super Mario Bros. U or Nintendo Land five years ago, this is the journal for you :P
- Quizzes and surveys and such
- References to random things I'm obsessed with
- Whatever else I feel like posting

Some of the random things I'm obsessed with are:
- LiveJournal (obviously)
- Looking back at things that were made years ago... old posts on LJ, etc.
- Math
- Weird dreams
- Video games (mostly Mario, Super Smash Bros., Kid Icarus, and Chip's Challenge)
- Video game music
- Homestar Runner
- Enya, my favorite singer and biggest celebrity crush
- Too many comics/webcomics to name... Garfield, mezzacotta, Terror Island, and Circle Versus Square might be the ones I'm the MOST obsessed with though. Oh, and Super Mario Maker Crash Course - that counts as a comic, right? It certainly counts as something I'm obsessed with :P
- Speaking of Super Mario Maker Crash Course, my biggest *fictional* crush is Mary O. Yes, I have a crush on the guide to a video game MANUAL. I'm so weird...


For a (hopefully) complete list of interests and Q&A about me, visit my profile. :) (Which is still in need of an update...)

This journal is semi-friends-only, but there's not much rhyme or reason to which entries are public and which ones aren't...
