My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I wish I had more time to play games, but I only have enough time to play a couple a month so now I spend a lot more time watching other people play games and talking about them.

I don't like Battlefield, Black Ops, or FPS games in general. Pretty much any other genre is cool though. I've just decided something that's probably controversial: I haven't really enjoyed any post 2007 Bioware game. They're all so bogged down in pointless choices and cutscenes. Not that there's anything wrong with a good story driven game, The Stanley Parable has great writing, Mass Effect 2 is just boring.

I discovered that I like reading really specific details, people with lots of broad answers are boring. I tried to match that with concise, but incredibly specific unique things about me that you can extrapolate on. If you don't like a brief synopsis, it's not like padding it out will suddenly make you change your mind.
"Man, I totally didn't care about civil rights before, but after reading you go on and on about them they're my new favorite topic"
- Nobody ever

Also, I have always owned dogs and plan to continue to.

I guess I need to add that I'm morally opposed to malls and other brick and mortar shopping centers. Just buy stuff from Amazon. I don't even know how this is a big deal in 2014 but I've been meeting so many people who make a really big deal about going to physical stores instead of buying stuff online. Yeah, if you have to get something right now it's fine to go to a store, but just going to stores to hang out every day is weird.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Mostly electrical engineering work.

I actually started working on a car for myself up here in New England. I was just using factory cars because I didn't feel like wasting the time with all of the salt they use around here, but I've gotten so bored with not working on my own cars that I ended up buying a project anyways.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I've built some competitive race cars, maybe you have a car you're interested in entering races with, I'd like an excuse to build another. I've built everything from Spec Miata to ASP. I've also built a high mileage per gallon reliable daily driver. Let me know if you're into racing, maybe we could collaborate next season.

This is the most important thing to keep in mind: Complete a budget for your project first. Then double it. If you don't have that much cash on hand you don't have enough to even start. I don't care if you have a turbo, a head, a set of shocks or whatever and you want to use them as a work in progress, if you can't afford to complete a project correctly, you can't afford to start it. I don't want to talk about your hacked together car. Also, if you changed the exhaust or intake before any engine internals work, sorry about your terrible life choices.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I type sort of fast.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Freakonomics, TV Carnage, QI, and the Hotline Miami soundtrack.

I'm a fan of pop music.

Pretty much all I read are non fiction technical books because I like learning stuff. Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy is probably the only fiction book I've enjoyed.

I'm a fan of UCB, Mr. Show, and most of the projects that people involved in those shows have gone on to do later. QI is the best show on TV right now.

In general I don't like old media. I'm much more interested in hearing people talk about games and their experiences in interacting with them than an account of how someone looked at any other form of media. Old media is just so boring.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How in an odd way Saints Row 4 is the most wonderfully progressive game ever produced.

I spend a lot of time thinking about intellectual property rights, civil liberties and where there might be appropriate balance between the two. People should be able to make money off of their work, but people also should be able to do anything for themselves. It's a complicated line.

Man, New England sure has bad weather.

What's up with all of these people who say they like games and then claim they don't have Steam accounts? Is piracy that big of a thing in New England or is everyone in around here just super paranoid about account hacking?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Building or designing something, maybe driving somewhere.

I've played Dark Souls, but I'm not obsessed with it.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're regularly up late. I work crazy hours.

If you want to talk about games. Really, like thousands of words about all aspects of games, from mechanics to storytelling to the development side. I'm not kidding. A bunch of people have contacted me and then been surprised by the volume of words I can give them just about a single verb in a single game. Sure, Activision has technically acceptable games, but there's nothing really interesting there. How about LA Noire? Or Deus Ex? Or even Robotron 2084?

If you watched the Games Done Quick marathons. Now THOSE are the sort of people who I'd like to hang out with!

If you want to play games, I like watching games much more than watching television or movies.

Just an idea I'm wondering about, but if you like more than 2 genres of games. Even someone who only plays sports games, puzzle games and adventure games is way more interesting than someone who exclusively plays shooters and RPGs.

If you want to actually hang out. I could talk to my friends back on the west coast if I just wanted to talk to people on the internet. I want to meet more people who I can do stuff with around here.

Also if you hate everything Seth Macfarlane or Judd Apatow have ever done. I can't stand anything either of them has done and it's fairly rare to find someone who agrees with me so if you do there's a good chance we have other things in common as well.

Maybe if you own Afrika and want to let me borrow it. That game is so hard to find now and it's kind of annoying that I haven't played it.
