    What's up everyone? I'm the Xbox One Captain of True Talent (my clan). My name is Justin, but in the gaming community, I go by Ik0n (I got it from a rapper from Jedi Mind Tricks, props if you know what I'm talking about). You'll definitely be seeing me around here a lot more in the coming weeks as this site looks like it's well set up. Anyways, here is a short description of me. :)


    [​IMG][​IMG]


    ABOUT ME

    I live in Duanesburg, NY and I'm 26 years old. I've played baseball and football on an organized level for my entire life, but I'm also a lets say.. aspiring.. Web Developer [2 college courses, the rest is self-taught]. My family runs a daycare/foster-care business and our house usually has 20 people in it [minimum].

    HOBBIES

    Sports, Airsoft, Gaming, Forums, Intellectual Discussion, Working Out [sometimes :)]. I'm a bit of an addict when it comes to forums.. I have multiple forums I've been a part of for over 5 years now.

    WHEN I STARTED GAMING

    I was gaming before I can even remember playing Mario, Sega games, Donkey Kong, etc. [I don't have that great of a memory]. However, the first XBL game I played was Unreal 2: The Awakening and that's what got me into playing games over XBL. To this day, it's still my favorite online game. Just.. nobody plays it anymore. I'm also involved with a great charity organization called Extra Life which is amazing. I'm wearing the shirt in that picture that you get for raising over $250. For those who don't know [and/or want to click the link] it's an organization where you stream a game for 24hrs straight on a given day per year and raise as much money as you can for your local children's hospital.

    FAVORITE TYPES OF GAMES

    My favorite type of games are Sports, Third-Person shooters, First-Person shooters, and Role Playing Games.

    I own an Xbox One, Playstation 4 and [obviously] a PC.

    Games in my library [even though I just sold a lot to get my PS4]:

    Call of Duty 4 [360]
    Grand Theft Auto 5 [360]
    Titanfall [360] My current favorite game
    Spec Ops: The Line [360]
    Sleeping Dogs [360]
    Halo 4 [360]
    Titanfall [ONE]
    NHL '15 [ONE]
    Ryse: Sone of Rome [ONE]
    Halo: MCC [ONE]
    Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare [ONE]
    Destiny [PS4]
    Middle Earth: Shadows of Mordor [PS4] An AMAZING game IMO
    Dragon Age: Inquisition [PS4]
    Wolfenstein: The New Order [PS4]
    Sniper Elite III [PS4]
    Diablo 3: Ultimate Evil Edition [PS4]

    Wow! This is the best introduction I've seen, I don't even have any questions. :ninja:

    Welcome to GamingForums, Justin. We've (by we, I mean @Robust :p) have recently had an overhaul on the sites design and layout; thanks for the kind words! :)
    Me too. :D
    That's awesome! I really know nothing about that, but I want to learn! ;)

    This looks like you've tried too hard at your intro here. In the end, it's just a forum. So try to relax a bit.

    And I heard about that charity event. There were too many streams going on at one time though, so I can't recall seeing you around.

    Honestly I think it's a good amount. An introduction can be a few lines to a few paragraphs, the recommended amount to not seem strange is really up to the forum's topic and the reason you're there. For example for a business forum you'd be writing a lot. You only make an introduction once and you should make it count. It's not meant to be a biography but should be providing information about yourself and your interests. If I had some time around Christmas I'd write about the same amount. Anyway it's a matter of opinion.

    Lol sorry. It's just the last thing I want here is some uptight members who write paragraphs on paragraphs. Not saying he's uptight, but I hope you understand that I don't want every member here writing essays on every post. xD

    I guess it is a matter of opinion.

    Oh, I agree each post shouldn't be an essay. The average post here won't even be two lines probably haha.

    Finally someone who likes both consoles, instead of being one of those Xbox fan boys. :)
