I stumbled across this site and am now temporarily addicted. Generally when I get on a site like this, I'm very active but disappear in no time. This is because, outside of my otaku habits such as gaming and watching anime, I have a Real Life, involving such things as playing tennis, playing the piano and drawing comics (This is not otaku), and sometimes hanging out with friends.
Either way, in spite of the fact that I really have more important things I should be doing, this site is fun. Plus, at least I know for sure I'll never inadvertently use a stupid trope (or pass up on a chance to surprise people with a subversion) once I make my way into the world of game design!
Remember; A Winner Is You! ^^
