ChronoJerz: Gaming Resume

Hello there! Welcome to OurCade Games! I’m the more attractive half of the team, JerzeeBalla aka ChronoJerz bka Triple Tech Terror. This is the first of what I hope will be many entertaining posts for you guys and gals to enjoy.

So we were brainstorming, trying to figure out how to kick this thing off. And my lesser half remembered something we had previously done a few years back. A gaming resume. You know, if someone searched for detailed background info on your gaming history, what would they find? That’s the premise here. So I’m first up to bat. I’m sure he will post his soon. After he makes sure it looks more impressive than mine. Anyway, enjoy the post and enjoy the site! We’re for the people. And more importantly, for the gamers.

Name: JerzeeBalla

Age: 31

Experience: 26 Years

Intro To Gaming: Ms. Pac Man (Atari)

Systems Currently Owned: PS3, 360, Wii, PSVita

Strongest Genre: RPG. My love for RPG’s began with the original Final Fantasy for NES. The strategic turn based combat and micromanaging of multiple characters appealed to a quick thinker such as myself. Add in my obsession with playing games to full completion and I had every skill I needed to get the most out of these lengthy adventures.

Weakest Genre: Competitive Shooters. The only ones I really had any skill at were Goldeneye and Perfect Dark. Most current FPS’s require really good twitch skills and reaction time. I just find myself too slow on the trigger to keep up. So if you see me in your lobby, just know there is a very high probability of me rage quitting after a stream of randomized obscenities.

All Time Fav System: SNES

Current Fav System: PS3

Favorite Game: Chrono Trigger

Code Check (Codes I know off top of my head).

  • 19, 65, 09, 17 = Sonic 2 Sound Test
  • 4,1,2,6 = Super Sonic (after sound test)
  • 1,9,9,2,1,1,2,4 = Stage Select (after sound test)
  • ABACABB, DULLARD = Mortal Kombat Codes
  • U,U,D,D,L,R,L,R,B,A, Select, Start = Konami Code
  • D,R,U,L,Y,B = SF2 Code for SNES (Same character)

Accomplishments (Gaming moments I am proud of.)

  • Beating Culex in Super Mario RPG
  • Beating Ruby and Emerald Weapon in FF7
  • Spanking Sephiroth in both Kingdom Hearts Games (He was dumb hard in the first.)
  • Beating Contra on NES without dying once
  • Beating Contra 3 on Hard
  • Winning my first Blockbuster tournament at 12 (Donkey Kong Country/Clayfighter)
  • Finishing the Endless Setlist in Rock Band 2
  • Singing at Magfest on Rock Band for a crowd of 100 plus (I got a perfect score on expert!)
  • Winning a 32 man Season in Madden 03 worth 640 dollars (20 a head, winner take all. I used my Dolphins, yes sir.)
  • Finishing 50 different games to 100 percent on PS3 (33 Platinum Trophies WOOOOOO!!!!)

Other Notes

  • I’m built for team play. Not the strongest individually, but I can play an assigned role to perfection.
  • Dangerous when 100% focused, but that rarely happens.
  • Not too fond of racing games (Burnout is the exception.)
  • I can be talked out of my game, depending on what I’m playing.
  • Not too great at 3D fighters.
  • Great at 2D fighters.
  • Puzzle game fanatic.

All in all, I’m a well rounded gamer. I play almost every type of game out there, and I’m above average at the majority of them. I do tend to take on more games than I can handle at once, but I’m greedy. If I had to grade my gaming skill including all genres, I would give myself about a 80-85. With some training in 3D fighters and competitive shooters, my two most obvious deficiencies would be remedied and my score would improve. I’m a worthwhile addition to any team environment.

  1. Great idea for a site! My intro to gaming was Donkey Kong on Atari and I’ve been hooked ever since. I mainly run on 360 these days but I have ps3, all of my old consoles & a ridiculous amount of games I have yet to complete. I look forward to seeing more posts.

  2. As a gamer, I know I will enjoy this blog.

    My first introduction to video games came from Pole position on Atari. I have owned almost every platform there was. Today I have in my possession I have a nes, snes, genesis, Wii, 360 & PS3(favorite). I also consider myself an all around gamer. I have played in several Madden & NCAA tournaments, won 3 and finished in top 10 in 15 tourneys. I have held 2 Madden tourneys myself where I gave out cash prizes. I’m currently planning my first COD tourney.

    Games where I have finished w/o dying:
    Contra
    Super Mario Bros
    Life Force
    Metal Gear 2-3
    Final Fight
    Art of fighting
    Dbl Dragon
    Bio shock

    • As a gamer, we’re glad to have you here! You finished Contra without dying? You definitely deserve props. That joint isn’t a joke at all. Looks like you’ve got a pretty respectable resume there as well. Long live gaming!
