This is where I thrive. I'm the same 14 year old fantasy and sci-fi
nerd at heart.
Game of Thrones
British panel comedy. Forget what you think you know about British
comedy, there's some brilliant trivia and wit without America's
puritanical censorship. Youtube QI, thank me later.
Song of Fire and Ice (Yes because I saw the show first, shut
Anything in the Ravenloft/Dragonlance/Forgotten Realms mythos
Learning to enjoy select classics; Voltaire, Salinger, Shelley,
couple of others
European melodeath/folk/power metal - Soilwork, Scar Symmetry,
Disarmonia Mundi, Korpiklaani, old In Flames, Eluveitie, Blind
Guardian, Amon Amarth...this could go on
American thrash/groove - Pantera and all derivatives, BLS, Evile,
Also odd spatterings of miscellanies. Clutch, Earth Wind and Fire,
Paul Simon, various 80s garbage. I won't say I'll listen to
anything, I just have an eclectic snobbery.
Anything certain social norms say I should've outgrown by now. I
have played and would again if the opportunity arose
Magic the Gathering (and similar CCGs in many formats)
Dungeons and Dragons (and similar derivative pen and paper
Mechwarrior (The heroclix based wizkids one, not the 80s grid one,
but I would)
Warhammer 40000 (Not actually, but same concept. Warmachine/Hordes,
still assembling and painting miniatures, but requires less
disposable income to get into)
Video games on pc and/or console. This ones a little tougher to
define, any game franchise or genre can let me down. I grew up
loving JRPGs, but can't be arsed to finish any Final Fantasy game
since X-II. If you're holding your breath for a Suikoden 6 or a
port of Suikoden 2 or Xenogears, we should chat.
I generally like couch co-op or private online. Online PvP is
asking to be annoyed by people with more free time than me. Some
recent titles I've become invested in are both Borderlands,
Torchlight 2, Both Arkham games, Alpha Protocol, Castlevania LoS
(classic formats still better), Saints Row 3, not much else has
hooked me but I'm always looking. Games are on a by title basis.
