I have a blog, but I hadn't touched it in a while and am deciding whether I want to update it or scrap the whole thing and start over.
The Halo series, just about anything made by Valve, Minecraft, Final Fantasies VII, VIII, X and XI, the main console Kingdom Hearts games, Diablo 1 and 2 (Haven't been able to play 3), the Super Smash Bros. games, Doom 3, the list goes on...
As I said, I'm considering a career in game journalism, and in order to break into that I need to start to really get my finger on the pulse of the games industry. By attending the meetup I would hope to build connections that could help me reach my goal, as well as learning things from people who are already established and work in games, since I hope to still make some myself, some day.
I'm a strong writer, and grasp concepts fairly easily. I was studying animation but I confess I didn't get to the hands-on segment of my courses. That said, I'm also friendly and outgoing, plus I can do funny voices.
Hey! My name's Dallas (no, I'm not from Texas), I'm 22 years old and I want to pursue a career in video games. For a long time I was considering design, but now I'm reaching a point where I feel journalism would play to my strengths a little better.
