What’s good folks. My name is Jordan (call me Jay if you’d like). I’m a 25 year old black guy from Northern Virginia. I’m a server at a restaurant, but spend most of my free time playing, writing, and talking about games. I’ve previously been a part of the IGN Destiny Podcast forum on Facebook and reddit. Back when it first launched I was a rather active member in the community and even made Grimoire for some of the more known members of the group. As my social awareness and political education grew I started to realize how toxic this space was and decided to leave.
I came to Waypoint through the almighty power of The Algorithm. Guide to Games videos kept popping up on my Facebook feed and I found that Danielle, Austin, and Rob spoke about games as much more than a list of positives and negatives, but as experiences. This led me to the podcast where I discovered the crew’s politics and philosophies on gaming lined up very much with my own, and thought that could finally find a community I could trust and feel safe in on the forums.
I have been registered on the forums for the better part of a year, but had been reluctant to be active for no good reason really.
I’m an Xbox/Switch gamer. I sink 100 hours on average into RPGs and tactics games and 100’s of hours into my favorite competitive shooters (my 2 most recent favs being Titanfall2 and PUBG).
Ideally, I’d like to be a part of a community that I have been unable to find in the world around me: a community of passionate gamers with respect for all types of people (except all types of abusers and bigots) and open-minds.
