I absolutely love computer games, and i hope to join the industry as a reviewer and/or writer. I enjoy most genres but have a particular soft spot for classic point and click adventures.
I'm also a fan of tabletop roleplaying games such as the White Wolf systems, AD&D and pretty much anything else I can get my grubby hands on.
I love to read, especially the works of Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett. I also read graphic novels and comics and especially love Transmetropolitan by Warren Ellis and the work of Alan Moore. In terms of DC versus Marvel I tend to lean towards Marvel, but both have excellent titles and ones that are, of course, utter crap. I'm also rather addicted to the webcomic Homestuck.
In a story from any form of media I tend to greatly enjoy one with a distinctive setting. There are so many genres and sub-genres that there's plenty to pick from... and when it feels like we're running out we can just splice two together to create something not-quite-new! Alternate History always grabs my attention along with the obvious Sci-Fi, Fantasy and Horror (often with the word "Comic" properly welded to the front of their name) and their extended fantastical family tree including, but not limited to: Hard Sci-Fi, Soft Sci-Fi, Non-Newtonian Fluidic Sci-Fi, Post-Apocalyptic, Superheroic, Space Opera, Cyberpunk, Steampunk, Dieselpunk, Sparkpunk, Clockpunk, Biopunk, Stonepunk, Necropunk, Gothic-Punk, Lovecraftian, Gothic-Horror, Survival Horror, Weird-West, Fairytales, High Fantasy, Low Fantasy, Yo-Yo Fantasy, Urban Fantasy and, to summarise; general speculative fiction.
...I may have made a few of those up.

I think I may be good at rambling on, especially about unrealistic, surreal scenarios... like me actually getting a job I enjoy!
Possibly my long hair.
