What do you like about Nintendo?

Nintendo has a really great legacy. I like the fact that I can play through an entire Nintendo franchise like Legend of Zelda or Super Mario without having to tolerate a single bad game. And while I'm doing it, I can watch the technology and gameplay evolve. I also find that Nintendo is very easy for people to pick up. While it's hard to get someone comfortable with a lot of hardcore RTS or FPS games, most people feel just fine with giving Mario Kart a try. So it's the perfect company to play with if you want to just enjoy gaming with a diverse group of people.

What games interest you?

I'm a big completionist. I prefer playing franchises where I can collect everything in every game. I love Super Mario, Legend of Zelda, Metroid, Mario Kart, Super Smash Bros., and the various Mario RPG games. I also enjoy playing the casual games like Wii Sports/Fit and Brain Age. Outside of Nintendo, I'm a big fan of Blizzard's RTS games like Starcraft.

What Nintendo systems do you own?

For consoles I've got GameCube, Wii, and Wii U. For handhelds I have Gameboy Advance, GameBoy Advance SP, GameBoy Micro, DS, DS Lite, DSi, DSi XL, 3DS, and 3DS XL.(More than one of some of them)

Why are you interested in hanging out with a bunch of crazy Nintendo fans?

Because if I wasn't interested, then setting up this fantastic meetup group would end up being a waste. But seriously, I find that Nintendo fandom makes for a great ice breaker when socializing and being able to play the games together is even better! Also, I've got a lot of extra controllers and handheld systems that just aren't worth the investment when no one else is using them at the same time.

Introduction

I'm a tech support professional and I've lived in Minnesota all my life. Along with video games, I enjoy singing and the theatre. I've been having a lot of fun finding meetup groups that fit me and creating ones that I couldn't find.
