Our Favorite Things (2017 edition)


Final bump, only 2 days left folks to get your entries in (if you're interested, either way I'd love to hear about it regardless).

shame the pic is dated

Last year I wrote a 2 part blog series called Our Favorite Things/And Then I don’t feel so bad. This year I would like to do that again. What are some of your favorite things about gaming? Be it fond memories you have about gaming, or games that really make you happy I’ll take just about any response. In our current climate with so much negativity from contention regarding loot boxes to the possible destruction of net neutrality (among other things) there is a lot that can weigh us down. In the face of all this let’s not forget what makes us happy and why we push for positive change in the industry.

So leave a comment below regarding some of your fondest gaming memories. Just like last year I’ll run all the users who participate in the same program I used last year to determine a winner, who will in turn receive a $50 Amazon Gift card (or “item” of equivalent value – on me of course). Last year I gave away a NES Mini which was won by our very own Sir Churros. This is open to everyone in the community regardless of what country you’re in. If an Amazon gift card is not a viable option, we can work something out.

Just as last year all participants will be featured in a follow up blog where the winner will be announced. Entries close by December 15th.


– This isn’t an event run, nor endorsed by Destructoid. If any problems transpire I’m the one responsible so please contact me.   

- This event is open to people outside the US. I will work with you in reason to have the prize delivered to you including sending an alternate gift card or item of equivalent value (USD) to you. Once again neither Destructoid nor its associates are in any way responsible for the prize and its shipment. This lands squarely on me.

Thank you for your time, let’s make the most of this December.

About Agent9one of us since 12:45 PM on 04.13.2010

Who is Agent9? The not so secret agent of the destructoid community.

A Few things about me

- I'm almost finished with my degree in computer science and I plan on going into independent development and freelancing once I'm done.

- I can be very cynical, but I do try to be positive or curb my negativity. In spite of this I'm actually very jovial in person and I don't get mad often. I would dare say I'm quite happy, even when things seem bleak. I simply don't like industry Bullshit and I'm not one to stand for it, even if it's a game I like.

- I host a series annually called 31 Days where I post 1 horror related or themed video game song a day for the month of october. During this time I also provide keys for games (free of course) to any reader observant enough to find them.

- I've been a member of destructoid since 2010, and a lurker long before then. As such I've seen many people both come and go. Such is the natural order of things.

- I enjoy Art and draw in my spare time

- I also enjoy theatre and films. I especially like Horror movies (both good and bad ones).

- I go camping once or twice a year. I would go out more but my allergies tend to get in the way.

- I don't drink, which may be a surprise to some. I might make a joke or two about it but I stay away from alcohol for my own personal reasons, though you can feel free to drink a pint on my behalf any time you'd like.

My Top 20 Games (By the ever Illustrious Dango


This is a commission I had done for me by Inquisitive Ravenclaw. You should check out his site if you like the following piece

I also got a musical piece made for me by the incredible Alphadeus. A little history behind this:

My musical piece came as part of the Songs for Gamers album DLC pack 02. Alphadeus has been making songs for the members of the destructoid community for years already. This past year he opened submissions and I applied. For my meagre efforts I received this lovely piece:

You can find him on youtube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCFs2UhJYPVITYWCiqMk-z3w

He also has other venues listed on his profile here, take a look if you are so inclined:

The community is full of people with all kinds of talent and I'm very pleased to be a part of it along with all of you (yes, you too fair reader).
