this's obviously my first visit to the forum, yes!
I'm the Dreaded Newby! hopefully something which will change in time ;D.
As reguards me, I'm 23, and am a student at durham University in North
England, where I'm enjoying a break after finishing my Ma in philosophy.
Site wise, I'm registered blind, but I do have a small amount of vision
(how much I can't precisely say, never having had normal vision).
always played main stream computer games, but sinse I have problems playing
games in a 3D perspective, sinse the release of the Playstation the amount
of games I can play has become rather limited.
Like several other people I
quite enjoy fighters (I've just bought Mortal Kombat Deadly alliance for my
Gamecube), but my main love in computer games is the 2D platform genre,
because of the amount of exploration such games involv. My favourite games
are probably the Metroid and Mega Man series (before they both went into
3D), and an old amigar classic called Turrican.
I only discovered audio
games very recently, I've been playing Interactive fiction aka text
adventures for a year or two now, but I only discovered audio games two
months ago. I'm a big fan as they allow me to play types of game I can't
normally ---- such as the first person stuff (I love Shades of Doom!). The
only thing i'm sad about is the lack of audio Rpg's, but i'll post about
that in another topic.
Ooopse! sorry about going on so long, it's an
occupational hazard of being a philosopher.
With our dreaming and singing, Ceaseless and sorrowless we! The glory about us clinging Of the glorious futures we see,
Our souls with high music ringing; O men! It must ever be
That we dwell in our dreaming and singing, A little apart from ye. (Arthur O'Shaughnessy 1873.)
