Dot dot dot!
I am a rising junior at Clemson University in upstate South Carolina. This sprawling metropolis of trees and Super Wal-Mart shopping centers is the home of the elusive Carolina Redneck, one of the stupidest creatures on Earth. Being at least 45 minutes from every major city, students at Clemson are forced to find alternate forms of entertainment, and by that I mean playing games, drinking, and playing games WHILE drinking. I'm rather fond of the last one, because it adds a fresh challenge to a stale game.
I am an English major with a Journalism minor, which is a fancy way of saying that I'll be unemployed after college. I am laid-back, eternally optimistic, and highly motivated in my laziness. If there is a way to avoid work, I'll find it.
The best way to avoid work, of course, is to be a gamer. I have been playing games for most of my life, with the majority of my RPGaming days being a few years ago in high school. I've come a long way from the little kid that got his ass handed to him every single time by Soda Popininski in "Punch Out!" I own all three current-generation systems, as well as a Gameboy Advance SP, which I call my "portable SNES." I wish they would release Chrono Trigger and Secret of Mana on that thing, but the damn Nintendo DS has taken the focus off the SP. See this? This is my sad face.
My favorite RPG's are listed on your right, but I feel that the sidebar is a tool of Satan, sent to cause me a great deal of mental anguish as I try to limit myself to 5 RPG's. I wish I could add Secret of Mana, Kingdom Hearts, Jade Empire, Knights of the Old Republic, Super Mario RPG, Wild ARMs, Brave Fencer Musashi, and numerous other games to my top 5 list.
I also enjoy anime and Iron Chef, because anything that comes out of Japan is cooler than anything that comes out of America. Except for the food... I would much rather have a juicy hamburger than squid flavored ice cream.
Remember folks: a vote for me, is a vote for inevitability. If I'm not elected your new Q&A host, I might be forced to start an underground resistance and seize RPGamer for myself in a bloody coup, and none of you want that, I'm sure.
Love and kisses from your future Overlord,
Steven "Z-Force" Zimmerman
