The Name, The Blog

This was me.

Every time my little brother walked passed the room I was in, playing Super Mario Brothers on the SNES or Jetpack on our first PC, he'd ask "Are you dead yet?" knowing that when I died, it would be his turn. He learned to use it as a tool to get his own way, sneaking up behind me and surprising me with the question. It simplified over time to become "Dead yet?" and this phrase became synonymous with our gaming life. Still in use today, we will both automatically ask the question every time we see each other playing a game.

I'm pretty much alone in my group of friends in my interest in gaming. I wanted a place to talk about it and to boast my achievements to people who understand what I have been through to reach them. I have written many blogs over the years, earning myself the moniker of BloggyDave and so here is my latest effort.

I mainly play on the PS4 and my various Android devices these days although I do have a pretty decent gaming PC and I still have a PS3 to finish off a few stragglers from the last generation. I'm not a brilliant word smith, so I won't be writing full reviews with fully formed opinions. Instead I prefer the ongoing review style of writing something up once you've experienced it.

I'm not one to have definitive lists but rather I tend to have an ever evolving idea of what's good and bad depending on the context, but to give you an idea of the type of games I play and enjoy here is a list of my top five favourite games of the last generation, in no particular order.

Fallout 3
Red Dead Redemption
Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag
Grand Theft Auto V

I'm currently playing Destiny and am looking forward to getting Assassin's Creed: Unity, Grand Theft Auto V for the PS4, LittleBigPlanet 3, LEGO Batman: Beyond Gotham and Alien: Isolation.

I will most likely start posting very soon about Destiny and some casual Android games that I'm playing at the moment. Please feel free to join in the conversation. To get you started, what are your favourite games on the PS3?
