|About myself:||(Formerly known as Sheldonist.)|
Command & Conquer community member for years, avid gamer for a little more than a decade and a half, firm believer in old game design philosophies - no shitty DLCs that could've been merged and made as expansions, no crappy microtransactions, and no frickin' rushing games just so whiny CEOs can have more limos. I also still prefer having boxed games, because everything digital (including Steam, you Valve fanboy) has a way of disappearing, as it's you know... insubstantial.
I love the OCD impulses I get with games, and this is one use of those, and I'm thankful for the helpful community (except the guy who made the standard of getting names strictly from the covers instead of the official/internal names, don't be that guy ;) )
