****Since my welcome thread was in the wrong place i decided to copypaste all the information in the right thread. So here you go folks. And yes that's all folks! :D****
Hey everyone on the other side of the internet,
I had no idea where i had to put this topic, so i hope this is the right place. (if not feel free to place it somewhere else)
I just joined this forum/site yesterday about 1 A.M. and today i thought why not make a welcome topic about myself. So here goes:
Hi! *shakes hands virtually with everyone around here* my name in reallife is RaphaÃ«l, but online i have several other nicknames. The one is use the most is: =(Predator)=, mostly in first person shooters. In racing games i use Ace (yep, i stole it fair and square from "Need For Speed III", because he was the toughest opponont for me, and i thought i want to be like him. Other times i also like to use ND4SPDR which is only used ones in the highscores of "Need For Speed II".
Still reading? Well okay, i was born and raised in Amsterdam. ('Geef mij maar Amsterdam dat is mooier dan Parijs' this is a part of a famous old song about Amsterdam the translation says: 'Oh, just give me Amsterdam it's better looking than Paris.' ). So at the moment i'm living on my own in the centre of Amsterdam (which rocks! feel free to walk in anytime, if your curious) , and i have 2 floors for my own, which ofcourse took some hard work to get but it's totally worth it!
Back in the cold winter of 1984 i took my first peek at the world. And i haven't stopped looking ever since. Now with my 21 years young i'm still exploring the world. Ofcourse i also discovered computergames, which was back in 1993 when my dad bought our first computer. I had some cool floppy gams like Stunts (from 4D Sport Driving, which was developed by the Bitmap Brothers) and Commander Keen. I immediately fell in love with computer- games. The first game i bought with my own money was Need For Speed III, i played it for a year non-stop and i'm hooked ever since. Although in my opinion part 4 is still the best around. (So Electronic Arts, go produce a remake with a new engine! I demand it!)
Now-a-days i still love to play computergames, but school is also demanding alot of attention. I'm in my second year of university and everything is going as planned (although my plans to take over the world are behind schedule *damn! I can tell you this, never ever use monkeys as soldiers*).
I joined this forum well to share my love about videogames, and also to meet and hopefully make some new friends. Kinda heard to explain some things, but i didn't had a nice childhood. Fact is that i don't know where my biological parents are, and well i don't have lots of friends. So i'm trying to make some changes in that, but it isn't as easy as it sounds. I'm also planning to make a trip around the world, so i want to meet different people and become friends with them, and ultimately visit them. (and for the girls that are reading: maybe more then friends ).
Well, there is not really more to say. When you get to know me you'll see i'm a funny and weird kinda guy, but also a nice person. And if you are still reading this, then i must warn you now because pictures of me are coming right NOW!:http://www.okcupid.com/profile?tuid=4992637454151986588
There are several pictures of me on that website.
Greetings from =(Predator)= and RaphaÃ«l
