Well alright, I wouldn't call myself a hardcore gamer or anything. Actually I'm pretty casual as far as gaming goes but I'm getting more into it. I got a Wii for Christmas and it's definitely the best system I've had so far, especially considering that I have somewhere around 50 Gamecube games and they're all 100% compatible with the Wii. Right now all I have for the Wii is Guitar Hero 5 and Need for Speed: Nitro but I'm loving them both, they're really great games. As far as what I usually play, my preferences are Sonic, Mario, Pokemon, Animal Crossing, Need for Speed and other street racing games, and, lately, Star Fox games. I'm willing to expand my horizons with my obtaining of a Wii, however, so that is one reason why I am joining this forum. This will be my first gaming forum, so I'm really hoping I can learn something from you guys. As far as systems go, I have got a Wii, a Gamecube, a Playstation 2, a DS and a Gameboy Advance SP. That's it. That's all I have. I'm rather pleased with what I've got, though. As you can see I have inadvertently managed to prefer Nintendo systems since I was 7 years old and received my first Gameboy. Good times, good times. So I'm going to be 17 in February and yes, I am indeed female. Glad to be here and, in closing, I really hope I can learn something from this forum. tl;dr: I'm a 16 year old female who likes the Wii a whole lot and wants to learn about the different games and add-ons for the system. EDIT: Oh and fyi I do not have internet on my Wii so, you know, don't ask for friend codes or whatever.
