Who is The Heartless Gamer Girl? 

This is 2013.
I was almost 34.
I started gaming when my mom bought an NES. She wanted us to learn to play the piano, so she got the NES and that game that comes with a keyboard. I don't even remember what it was. I did learn to play Ode to Joy, though. Kinda. I also learned I hate metronomes. 

And since buying an NES meant getting Super Mario Brothers and Duck Hunt, I played those too. I learned I dislike Super Mario and platformers in general. I also learned how much I hate that dog for laughing at me in Duck Hunt.

Gaming is mostly what I do when I'm depressed, though I sometimes use it for brainstorming. (I'm a writer.) Basically, it's a great escape, and a great way to burn off anger that has no other outlet. (I'm emotional.) 

So here's this blog, one of about a dozen blogs I own, and this one is dedicated to this side of myself that I barely understand. It's a side I might be a little ashamed of, but one I kinda love. 

I love video games. Enough that I don't care about the lingo, the "in" thing, or the crowds and pastimes that typically appeal to gamers. Yes, I call myself a gamer. No, I don't really identify with gamers. 

Action RPGs and JRPGs are my drug of choice. I've been known to venture into other genres, but these are the two I really enjoy.

Enslaved: Odyssey to the West

Favorite game (ATM): 
Enslaved: Odyssey to the West. I seriously love this game. I can ignore the fact that it's a big fat platformer because the story is JUST THAT GREAT.

Other favorites include most of the Assassin's Creed games, the Devil May Cry series, the Borderlands games, any and all Final Fantasy games, and some lesser known games as well.

That said, a brief explanation of my blog title might be in order, huh? I'm a writer (I mentioned that) and my bestselling novel is a Regency romance called Heartless. It's kind of become a thing with me. That's it. Nothing more. I don't plan to tear apart games, developers, publishers, or designers here. There may be the occasional rant directed at a game, but I realize more than most that there are real people behind all creative projects. I don't want to intentionally hurt anyone's feelings.

And now you know a bit (or more) about me. Thanx for stopping by and listening to, type...or whatever. Kisses, my lovelies! ;)
