From the PlanetXbox360 feature article:
"I write about video games on a daily basis, and they're my passion in life. With that said, it's no wonder that most of my time is spent conversing about video games with my friends. It's always a potpourri of mixed opinions. Some will agree completely with my views, and then there are my other friends who are happy to agree to disagree as long as our debates are cordial. It's quite the healthy mix of conversation, and I'm grateful to have such an outlet with which to discuss the things that are most important in my life. That's one of the reasons I have chosen to blog, as well as mingle at other community sites. I value others' opinions regarding my own in gaming, and it's fun to chat. It's also a great pastime of mine to talk strategies and to game while on the phone or chatting with friends. While doing this over the years, a type of person has reared their ugly, obnoxious head: the backseat gamer."
