The idea of completely being immersed into the experience, and walking away with this feeling no one can take away. When someone says they have laughed, jumped or cried during their gameplay experience. Video games have been a large of my childhood, playing through Ocarina of Time and enjoying the the craft and dedication taken to provide beautiful videos; rampaging through Conker's Bad Fur Day and regaling in its filth and being offended (hilariously though) by its content; and nearly losing my life to Arkham City, which has provided one of the greatest experiences ever. I would like to write a script to video game one day, tentatively titled Sonic and Knuckles 2. Now with the resurgence 2D platform games and independent titles, video games are much more exciting than ever.
For misogyny to end, and for everyone to understand that anyone can enjoy playing video games. Women coming out and proclaiming their love for this medium is also a powerful and positive influence, and this is a great step for camaraderie amongst gamers, regardless of gender. Many of my friends are girls who are very into playing, and their enthusiasm is just as important to the gaming factor. Who says Mass Effect or GTA has to be solely for guys? Women clearly enjoy these titles as well.
My name is Carlos Leonardo Lima-Lopez, and I am inspiring musician/writer/music snob/film maker/poet/self proclaimed avant guarde pop musician. I was born with perfect pitch and I intend to make use of my gifts. I also enjoy playing video games.
