Where are you from?
Scranton, Pennsylvania (better known as the setting for the show "The Office")

Name/handle
Jeremy

What was the last game you played?
Super Adventure Island 2.  I made it to the final boss as a child and had to return it to the rental store before getting to finish it.  A few days ago, I finally did.

Name a really great game, and something really great about it
BIT.TRIP FLUX.  The state of flow that game induced in me is beyond that of most other experiences I've encountered, gaming or otherwise.  The music, visuals, and gameplay flow into each other so seamlessly, so elegantly, it blew me away.  The game is pretty difficult if you're not accustomed to the style of game, so I'd recommend achieving some mastery of it's prequel BIT.TRIP BEAT (which is an experience in its own right) if you're looking to fully experience the full-on flow nirvana that is FLUX.

Do anything else?
I make cows for Adventure Cow.  Other than that, I enjoy many forms of design, particularly graphics and game, as well as the occasional (usually simple) coding project.

Fancy fonts sir!

Where are you from?
NYC

Name/handle
Chris

What was the last game you played?
Terraria. Like Minecraft, only flatter. The artwork is fun, the upgrades are awesome, and it satisfies my apparent urge to build things with squares and upgrade st*ff.

Name a really great game, and something really great about it
Baldur's Gate 2. The story and the game play well together, and all the tiny bits of atmosphere add up. Minsc and Boo are the best ranger-miniature giant space hamster team ever created.

What was the last game you played?
Probably something from jayisgames.com.

Name a really great game, and something really great about it.
I've got interactive fiction on my mind, so I've got to go with Slouching Towards Bedlam. It just created a wonderful atmosphere for me -- everything seemed so vivid! Plus there's a creepy and compelling story. That's always nice.

Hi all! I like how different everyone's backgrounds and game interests are.

Have any of you written any games? I know at least Stuart has.

Name/handle - Brian / Rithe

Where are you from?: - Ohio

What was the last game you played? - Either Torchlight, or Minecraft

Name a really great game, and something really great about it. - There are many. Right now I have Thief: The Dark Project in my mind. Sneaking around stealing things and knocking out guards is a lot of fun. Not to mention that the story is great. This one just happens to be on my mind because of what I'm writing at the moment.

Name/handle - Vhillain Mastermind

Where are you from?: - The rat king's domain

What was the last game(s) you played? - DoomRL, SuperMeatboy, and Mother 3

Name a really great game, and something really great about it. - Fallout & Fallout 2: The incredible world with all of its little touches blew my mind. Another thing that rocked my world was that it was the first class-less RPG I had ever played.
Good minions do not participate in douche-baggery.

All Hail, Villain Mastermind!
