After being a member of this community for close to 5 years and watching all the progress it is making, from the layout changes to the introduction of the new blog section, I decided it was time for the Foxx, to join the blog scene.
Now, this is my first blog attempt ever, and I have no idea how this is supposed to go. No clue on how this should actually begin. Do I use other blogs as an example, do I just start running my mouth and hope somebody cares about my opinion, how does this work? Therefore, I figured I would start with an introduction; a good start for my first blog would be a blog explaining why I decided to blog. I cannot go wrong with that right. Let us find out.
Now, some of you reading this may or may not have seen my name on these forums or other forums, or know of me somewhere. I have not used the name DeserttFoxx as much this year as I have in the past (Dropped the desert and adapted the title, Mr. Foxx.) but I am very vocal on most forums I frequent, and I will be the first to admit that I can offend some people. I tend to say exactly what comes to my mind when I post, now that does not mean I attack people but more so that I firmly believe that people are entitled to their opinions, they should are able to say whatever comes to their mind. In addition, people reading their thoughts should not hold anything they read against the writer, but just believe that speech is free, and everyone has their own opinion and, while you may not agree with what it is they have to say, you do agree with their right to say it.
I chose the title “My gender is gamer” because I could not think of anything better to symbolize how much I care about gaming and the community that surrounds it. Now that phrase “My gender is gamer” is a term I started saying back when I started with my very first MMORPG, which was final fantasy 11. My first character I created was female, and for the most part, 80% thereafter in every other MMORPG were the same. Now, I do not role-play but I do use serious names for my characters, if I make a male character he will have a guy’s name, if I make a female character she will have a woman’s name. And it never fails, after playing with people for a while, they will ask, “Are you a real chick?”, and I always answer, “My gender is gamer.”
I usually say that because it doesn’t really matter what my gender is, nor does it matter to me what your gender is, my only concern when I group with a person is, are you good at what you do, do you understand your class and can you play it. If you cannot, then I will keep my distance from you regardless of your gender. I do not think boys are better gamers than girls, nor do I think girls do things better then guys are. Therefore, I expect the same performance skill from both genders equally, so the question is rather pointless.
A little about me personally to end this, I am a guy, 21 years old. From Toronto, Ontario and currently going to college for game design. I am currently not playing any MMO right now, but beta testing a bunch. And I recently applied for a mod position with MMORPG, and they invited to the team so I hope that works out. I used to be Lead Moderator for acclaim’s 2 moons forum, but when I started working full time I did not have the time to lead the moderators and the VGMs while working, hopefully I can help maintain this community, let’s wait and see. Now I had to make a new name to take the position. That of course was because, even if I made a disclaimer before all posts clearly stating that my opinions are my own and not a reflection of the views of MMORPG staff as a whole, some people would be too stupid to believe that and still hold MMORPG Staff accountable for any statement.
And with that, I want to hit the ground running. I have about four subjects burning in my mind right now and I plan to put them up shortly. And what I hope to get out of this is not a fan base, nor approval, but simply a place to get some mental stimulation. I am all about the debates, so I hope I manage to spark up some good ones.
