I haven’t successfully reached out to any of you to put together our first story. In fact, I haven’t attempted to reach out to any of you at all. As you know, The Couch Petito mission is to share the stories about games and their connections with the people that play them. So to kick things off–and to give you a feel for how we do this–I wrote our first story on myself.
To clarify, you don’t write your own story. We’ll send out a short questionnaire via e-mail, but what we’re most interested in is your experience with a game. We want to craft a story around that.
You can share as much or as little information as you’re comfortable with; we don’t care if it’s 140 characters or 14. My story is about discovering Resident Evil in 1996 and how it helped shape my interest in horror as a genre, while simultaneously scaring the living crap out of me. Link to follow.
