Who am I? You sure you want to know? The story of my life is not for the faint of heart. I often use TV Tropes for reference on reddit. I also enjoy editing to fix mistakes from time to time, as well as add examples to tropes I know, or vice versa. I've even occasionally created a trope or work page! Not anything huge, but they're something. Before you ask about my username. It was from randomly typing on the keyboard... well, someone else randomly typed it on their keyboard for their username, and I stole it from them. Yeah... total dick move in hindsight, but I've become attached to it now. I do have a different, more original username on Steam, so hopefully I'll be able to gradually phase this one out and let the guy have it, if he's still out there.


I guess I'll list the stuff I like here. Wouldn't want to forget.

  • The Iron Giant is another film I grew up with, and it still holds up to this day.

Gonna be working on this one for a long time. I've played so many great video games over the years I want to mention.
  • I've probably put more hours into Team Fortress 2 than any other game I've ever played. I'm too embarrassed to say here exactly how many.
  • Left 4 Dead 2. I love the campaign mode, but I almost never touch versus. Too much pressure for my tastes.
  • Minecraft is definitely one of the next most played games... or maybe even first. I'm not sure. In any case, I still enjoy it to this day, although I don't feel the updates have gone in a direction I'd like for some time now. I guess that's the downside of the always updating model of video games.
  • Terraria is somewhat like Minecraft, but the bosses are more fun, there's more weapons, and items, less generic npcs, and more enemies! This has pretty much replaced Minecraft for me except in multiplayer, which doesn't work as well in a small, finite, 2D world.
  • Starbound. It's Terraria IN SPACE!! And with more of a story.
  • RollerCoaster Tycoon, the first three at least. One of my first "real" PC games, after years of Pajama Sam and the like. Well, sometime early anyway. I'll be honest, it's all kind of a blur, and I couldn't really tell you whether I got it, Sim City 3000, Zoo Tycoon, or Age of Empires II first. Speaking of...
  • Zoo Tycoon: I played both 1 and 2, but the First Installment Wins here. Any others except DS shall not be mentioned.
  • SimCity: I played a bit of 2, but my main experience was with 3000 and 4.
  • Age of Empires: Wasn't around for the original, and couldn't get into the third, but I played the hell out of II. Of course, I was young enough my parents didn't want me playing online, so when I eventually did try I realized my skills were woefully inadequate. I still can't match up against most online players today, but a bot match is fun as ever.
  • Rise of Nations: In my opinion, the greatest RTS ever released. It's like Age of Empires 2 with tech going up to the modern day, and new game mechanics like territory and attrition.
  • Broforce: The most patriotism I've ever seen AND fun Stuff Blowing Up gameplay? Sign me up!
  • The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and Fallout. I've only played Skyrim for Elder Scrolls and 3, New Vegas and 4 for Fallout, but I plan to try the older games when I have the time.
  • The Incredible Machine: I'm pretty sure this is one of the first games I played, around the same time as Pajama Sam and The Oregon Trail.
  • Crash Team Racing: I had this well before any of the Mario Kart games, so it was my introduction to the kart racing genre. And damn, it's great. Boss races, diverse maps, great shortcuts, fun items. It was also one of the first games I remember where I could beat my family and friends consistently! Granted, having hours of practice and them having never played before helped a lot... but still!

     Web Video 
  • Ashens has a great british style sense of humor, and what could be more entertaining than watching someone review a Shoddy Knock Off Product or food months out of date? ...Don't answer that.
  • bill wurtz: Funny videos. Good music.
  • Breaking Trail: Anyone brave enough to get bitten by a snapping turtle has my respect.
  • Cinemassacre: I guess I have a weakness for excessive swearing and vulgarity. But beyond that, his reviews are actually pretty good, and have only kept getting better.
  • Jerma985 is one of those channels I can always find entertaining, even if I don't care about the content itself. Maybe it's the Contagious Laughter?
  • Nostalgia Critic: I enjoy his reviews, from the very early stuff to the more sketch oriented ones that some fans disliked. His out of character reviews are pretty good as well.
  • Most of the Vinesauce streamers are reliably entertaining to me, and seem to be pretty good people with all the charity streams.
  • The Vsauce channels make videos I always find worth the watch. Though sadly, I think Kevin and Jake might be overtaking Michael for me, if only because he's focusing on his Youtube RED show so much.

How well does it match the trope?
