Im a student from Finland, who really loves to occasionally delve deep into games, movies, animes and mangas. Currently, im studying information technology in Vaasa University of Applied Sciences. Expected to graduate as an engineer in around 2012 (hopefully).
Games: I'm very broad minded when asked about my interests. I play a lot of games - both on the PC and on my PS3. World of Warcraft is one of the key elements of my gaming persona, but as it happens I tend to get bored of it quite often and thus my gameplay is more casual than most.
My favorite game series: Silent Hill, Metal Gear Solid, Civilization, Gran Turismo.
My favorite games on PS3: Dark Souls, GT5, MGS4, Batman: Arkham City
Anime: Of course. Why wouldn't it be. Anime has always been very important in my life. Sometimes its my only solace in this harsh reality and sometimes it serves as a catalyst to various events in my life.
My first ever anime was Silverfang (Ginga Nagareboshi Gin). I can't remember how old I was at the time, but I remember it was dubbed in finnish (awful dubbing) and cut so it was suitable for children (all bloody scenes were removed). It left me and a lot of other people such a lasting impression that to this day, I get goosebumbs just listening its soundtrack.
The anime that officially made me an anime fan was Inuyasha. Before Inuyasha, I had watched Final Fantasy Unlimited due to the fact that I was trying to find everything Final Fantasy related. That didn't spark the anime love (even though I liked it very much at the time), but when I watched Inuyasha I was so engaged with the series that when it ended I had to find more.
AMV's: I love watching AMV's every now and then. I don't actively search for them anymore, but I do occasionally watch some. I made some AMV's during my naruto frenzy, but these days I no longer have the time for them.
Movies: I watch a lot of movies. Not so much now as I did before I started school again. Before I would buy 2-3 DVDs a week. Nowadays its more like 3-4 a month. But even though I watch less, I still love watching them and I seem to have the ability to fully immerse myself in the movie experience. Maybe that is why I like a lot of films that many people would consider horrible. My favorite genres are psychological thrillers and science fiction.
Fantasy and Rolegames: I have always been fascinated by magic, the occult and mythologies. More so, I have always loved everything related to fantasy. Be it fantasy art, books, cardgames, boardgames, what ever. And yet, I have never actually joined a roleplaying game.
Writing: I love to write. Doesn't really matter what I write, as long as I understand the subject matter and have extensive knowledge about it. I write some fantasy literature to my own amusement, hoping that someday I could get something published. The problem with my writing is that I'm never really content about my writings, but occasionally I do manage to write something that I'm happy with. Sometimes when I write, I get completely lost in the world I'm creating and that feeling alone makes me want to write again and again. The only thing that prohibits me from writing is my lazyness. I always find something else to do, such as playing games and watching anime or TV.
Zodiac Sign: Libra
Chinese Zodiac: Dog (Weirdly, my favourite character in Fruits Basket is Sohma Shigure. Go figure)
Favourite Animal: Cat or Wolf (I love cats, but I also love anything related to wolves)
Favourite Color: Blue
Favorite Music: Game/Movie/Anime Soundtracks, Alternative and/or Melodic music (Nightwish, Linkin Park, Dead by April etc)
