I never thought myself as an aspiring journalist. I just thought of myself as an asshole that always had something angry to say about gaming. Gaming could almost be described as my passion in life. I'm not college educated. I never hope to be discovered and get a gig writing for Joystiq or feel like could finagle my way into E3 and feel legitimate. I just like to write. Unfortunately I made it so it wasn't fun. I tried too hard to sort of comply with the "rules" of blogging. Nobody gives a shit about lists. Everybody has a top ten list. You can go anywhere on on the net, not just blogging sites, and find a top 10 list about something. They're all the same. So here I am. I ruined my own site for myself. I focused too hard on writing reviews for things, most of which went unpublished, or scathing lists about various topics that everyone always talks about. I'm done with that. I don't know what the hell I was thinking. This is a rebirth of VA. I'm going to make this the way I want it to be. I'm not going to bother with the nonsense that I feel like I'm obligated to write just because I have a blog on the internet dedicated to a particular topic. If I feel passionate enough about a particular game, sure, I'll write something, whether that be positive or negative. And I tend to get bizarre and random gaming gadget and knick-knacks that I never really write about that I probably should. Good times will be had by all. But mostly me. You, I'm not so interested in.
