First Post: An Introduction

My name is Gal Gamer, and as the tag suggests, I’m a gamer, and female.


Why hello there~!!

I feel like I should probably use this very first post to introduce myself, not just as the blogger but also as the gamer given how we’ve only just met each other today, but I’ll try to keep it as brief as I can. Anyway,  my name is Gal Gamer, and as the tag suggests, I’m a gamer, and female.

I wouldn’t say I was a casual or a hardcore gamer. I’m more of a gamer that sits in the middle: I will obsess over a game for any amount of time between days or weeks before either finishing it or forgetting about it entirely. I swear I have more games I haven’t completed than I have games that I have, and I certainly know that there are a lot of games that I haven’t even had time, funds or in some cases the cajones to play, or indeed interest -very unlikely that you’ll see many Modern Warfares or general sporting titles up here, though I may flirt with the idea of playing other shoot-’em-ups. It’s kind of surprising how much Sniper Elite 4 appealed to me after years of resisting the lures of Call of Duty, Tom Clancy games and the aforementioned Modern Warfare series.

I’m more of an RPGer, particularly JRPGs, since that was the genre that got me into gaming hook, line and sinker. Actually, if I’m frank and honest, while Pokemon Blue version had been my very first game, with my very first handheld console -a teal Gameboy Color- it had been a borrowed version of Final Fantasy IV for the Gameboy Advance that had got me into gaming proper. I would nick my brother’s GBA for hours at a time when he was otherwise occupied just to play it. Subsequently I got my own GBA and, nine finished Final Fantasy games, five main consoles from across three generations, five handheld consoles and round about fifteen years later, here we are. Me, talking to you, having this conversation. How time flies when you’re having fun, huh?

Now to the more nitty gritty. I am a Playstation girl. I have nothing against the Xbox, I just preferred the Playstation’s exclusives. That’s it. Everyone is welcome here since I won’t just cover the exclusives; the cross platform games get to hang out here too. The only thing I will say is that the games I cover are the ones that I love and enjoy so that will mean not just the new releases; older games get their time in the spotlight too, and boy will we have a lot to talk about in the 3DS section.

This month though, this most incredible and most exciting of months were so many good games are getting released, I can’t help but feel that its serendipitous that I felt compelled to write about the hobby that I love the most. So cheers to what’s already shaping up to be one of the finest years in gaming history; let’s make it a good one together.

Lovely chatting with you all~ See you Friday~!
