I’m Andy. Not really sure what to share here. I’ve been living in Oregon for a couple years and a variety of places before that. I definitely haven’t played as many games in recent years as I used to, though I do try to keep up with the conversations through podcasts, twitter, and what not.
I have followed a lot of the current Waypoint crew from even before the existence of the site. I used to read and watch Patrick’s work on 1Up back in high school/college and have read his work all through to Kotaku, discovered Gita’s work through the Match3 podcast, etc. I’ve been reading the site since the beginning, though I admit that my podcast listening lapsed for some time in the earliest years.
I decided to join this forum because I am getting sort of tired of the less focused drive-by conversations that things like twitter and reddit seem to encourage. I hope to sort of recapture some of the enjoyment of a forum culture like I remember from the past (I was active on 1Up and the 2003-2010(?) iteration of the Game Informer forums) but maybe without the enormity and craziness of GAF/Resetera.
Looking forward to discussions to come.
