* BerserkButton: I strongly dislike gaming treated as a business, be that large publishing houses such as Activision, EA or NCSoft(They killed Videogame/AutoAssault, my favorite {{MMORPG}}) or "professional" or "MLG" gaming and the associated businesses, and "esports"-centric games that encourage toxic behavior by design like Videogame/LeagueOfLegends and Videogame/Overwatch. Games are about ''fun'', dammit.

Greetings Tropers. I'm [[TheGoodCaptain Captain]] [[CannonBallRun Chaos]] and i'll be your designated [[ZombieApocalypse zom]][[DeadNation bie]] [[KillingFloor killer]] [[Left4Dead for]] [[NationRed today.]] I'm on {{Steam}} [[http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561197970739339/ under the same handle.]]

I have been lurking about on TVTropes for some time, and find it a most enjoyable way to spend time. I now find myself spotting tropes in my favorite works, [[TVTropesWillEnhanceYourLife and I find myself approaching these works from a critical standpoint I did not before.]] [[TVTropesWillRuinYourLife That said, I do hang around on here sometimes when I ought to be working or suchlike.]] I decided to start contributing when I noticed that the page for one of my favorite Gameboy Games, ScurgeHive, had nothing on it save the "Describe X here" template. I hope the information I inputted about the game is satisfactory to any tropers who might have been trying to find the game. I created the page for Interstate76 a while back, but soon found it mysteriously vanished, [[DethroningMomentOfSuck forcing me to begin it almost from scratch.]] [[WeHaveReserves I back up my page edits nowadays.]] Look down this page a bit to see the pages I've worked on.

As an avid PC and console gamer, most of my contributions are to pages for video games [[NeedsMoreLove that have no page to speak of or are otherwise sparse.]]

* PercussiveMaintenance: [[TeamFortress2 Gimme a wrench]], [[XboxThreeSixty I'll fix that red ring for you!]] I have found that kicking your tower PC in an emergency may actually help. I still don't recommend it though.

* ActionFilm: Most of my favorite movies are the great action films of the 20th century. The rest are dramas like ChildrenOfMen and {{Interstellar}}.
* DrivingGame: Yes and no. I've had a love/hate relationship with NeedForSpeed and other traditional driving games, but I feel like most of them aren't balanced any better then MarioKart. [[VehicularCombat Just put guns on my car and get it over with.]]
* FirstPersonShooter My favorite genre by far, if only because there are a lot of good ones. [[NostalgiaFilter Or WERE, anyway.]] I got my start with the {{Shareware}} versions of {{Doom}} 1 and {{Quake}}, but the first full one I played might have been JediKnightDarkForcesII. Aside from that, my favorites are either:
** Ones with great writing and atmosphere, like BioshockInfinite, VideoGame/Prey2017 and WolfensteinTheNewOrder,
** Ones with awesome gameplay, like VideoGame/Doom2016 and BulletStorm.
* ThirdPersonShooter: I am also fond of these. A friend and I had a good time playing through the GearsOfWar series.
* RealTimeStrategy: I've dabbled in these over the years, but I'm not particularly skilled at them. I played a lot of TotalAnnihilation. My favorite would have to be the first DawnOfWar.
* {{Roguelike}}: I really like games with procedural loot and environments. I could do without the punishing difficulty however, and prefer "Rogue-lites" or so-called "Roguelike-likes", preferably with things like persistent progression, and a choice of difficulty settings. RogueStormers, [[VideoGame/{{Ziggurat}} Ziggurat]], ImmortalRedneck are among my favorites.
* ShootEmUp: The first non-educational game I ever played was {{Kiloblaster}}. From there, I moved on to {{Tyrian}}, TrafficDepartment2192, and into ApogeeSoftware's library with RaptorCallOfTheShadows. The rest is history.

!!'''Favorite media of Captain Chaos'''


* DrivingGame: Yes and no. I've had a love/hate relationship with NeedForSpeed and other traditional driving games, but I feel like most of them aren't balanced any better then MarioKart. [[VehicularCombat Just put guns on my car and get it over with.]]
* FirstPersonShooter My favorite genre by far, if only because there are a lot of good ones.
* ThirdPersonShooter: I am also fond of these.
* RealTimeStrategy: I dabble in these, but I'm not particularly skilled at them. My favorite would have to be DawnOfWar.
* {{Roguelike}}: I really like games with procedural loot and environments. I could do without the punishing difficulty however, and prefer "Rogue-lites" or so-called "Roguelike-likes", preferably with things like persistent progression, and a choice of difficulty settings.
* ShootEmUp: The first non-educational game I ever played was {{Kiloblaster}}. From there, I moved on to {{Tyrian}}, TrafficDepartment2192, and into ApogeeSoftware's library with RaptorCallOfTheShadows. The rest is history.
* VehicularCombat: My other favorite genre. [[SelfDemonstratingArticle Just take a look at the pages I've worked on.]]
