LOTRO: THAT QUESTION & AIR

22 Aug

THE QUESTIONNAIRE

(started by Cannotbeblamed who can be blamed as spent most of the day on it…behind big time at work!)

Some of this stuff gets repeated from another blog inspired introspection of gaming here.

1

When did you start playing video games?

I must have been about 8 or 9 – space invaders at the swimming pool!

2

What is the first game you remember playing?

Atari 2600 Star Wars: The Empire strikes back 1982 at a friends

3

PC or Console?

‘PC’ but was once ‘Console’ may change again one day…

4

XBox, PlayStation, or Wii?

At the moment the kids have a Wii for Netflix, PS2 and SNES stashed at my mum’s and selection of old consoles given away in 2010 when I could not afford storage space in Denmark! Miss the PS games the most!

5

What’s the best game you’ve ever played?

FFVII was my favourite but maybe it has not stood the test of time!

6

What’s the worst game you’ve ever played?

SO many crap PS games I tried…worst that I actually handed over doullah for….that I remember being most disappointed by Populous…was expecting a more PC experience!

7

Name a game that was popular/critically adored that you just didn’t like.

I couldn’t get to grips with any football game ever…Gran Turismo ..I liked but simply couldn’t do…Metal Gear Solid 2, after loving to death the first I never did finish the second! And Dynasty Warriors…I just could not get behind it…loved the tactics version though!

(William Shatner and Henry Rollins Not Getting Behind things)

8

Name a game that was poorly received that you really like.

Vandal Story got bad reviews but is one of my all time favourite games, although now a bit of a cult classic!

9

What are your favourite game genres?

RPG, strategy, MMO, adventure, fantasy and sci-fi, fighters,

10

Who is your favourite game protagonist?

Has to be Cloud from FFVII…I would love a polygon suit for cos play! It’s been done:

Sepiroth also best game villain ever too…I can hear the music now

11

Describe your perfect video game.

That is still percolating in my head…hope to find a way to make it reality one day… MMO adventure, 3d immersion, force feedback, exercise, skill, training?

12

What video game character do have you have a crush on?

OK I will come clean I have always liked Chun-Li and loved Felicia…sad but I am a grown man now and well… I don’t need games for titillation anymore it was a early 20’s kinda coming of age kinda thing…honest!

13

What game has the best music?

Well above mentioned FFVII was awesome and LOTRO very good but I simply loved Wipeout 2097…I hope that counts! Would never have found Photek if not for their track(s) there, and then I would never have found this track, one of my favourite tunes ever: Niten Ichi Ryu

Photek niten ichi ryu

Not to be confused with

Shoryuken

14

Most memorable moment in a game:

Finishing Sonic 2 in 1 day on my 20th bday with ALL crystals…SUPER SONIC.

15

Scariest moment in a game:

Resident Evil 2: too many to mention, was playing in a shared house in Denmark, lights off late at night anyone came into the lounge area used to freak me out completely. Sometimes no-one WAS in the lounge area, I just freaked out! Awesome, miss this GAME. (I want to get RE4 on Wii but would scare the kids too much!)

Top 10 re2 leon moments!

OK looking at that now looks not so scary but I swear I was in the zone and freakin’ at the time.

16

Most heart-wrenching moment in a game:

OK cliché Aeris’s death in FFVII, really she is dead…dead really? You telling me she is dead? No she isn’t dead? But, but …nah…she cannot be dead!

Reminds me of RED DWARF …

dead dave

Gutted they really killed her, you can even get her ultimate weapon later…weird!

17

What are your favourite websites/blogs about games?

I still check in on EDGE magazine  (is it on summer hols not updated in a month!)

LOTRO players of course…

And generally diverse blogs which all point to eclectic various other sites…

18

What’s the last game you finished?

Well it wasn’t Zelda Skyward sword which was the last I bought, I had to stop playing due to controller issues (I broke the only Nintendo controller we had that worked well with it!) Wow I think the last game I actually finished would be Command and Conquer 3 campaign as it was the only game I had for my Powerbook I had when I started my big trip to Spain and South America…of course was greatly distracted by DOFUS…now play only LOTRO…wife, kids and work get in the way!

19

What future releases are you most excited about?

None at the moment, myself from Argentina, when I am back in Europe(with family) I hope to get back to normal console and PC gaming life…

20

Do you identify as a gamer?

Hell yeah! But I don’t scream and shout it on the streets!

21

Why do you play video games?

I love reading and I love Movies. And many games could be a kind of interactive fusion of these but I have always loved games and sports. Computer games also incorporate many aspects of these too… It can also be social or solo…

Ultimately they are fun and they help me to relax. LOTRO enables me to ‘PLAY’ with friends or alone whenever I want.

Of course playing LOTRO while surfing is not yet possible… a floating waterproof gaming laptop attached to a buoy and a strong wifi signal and I have the perfect spot in mind! Even has a beer selling, frisbee throwing beach attendant! Keeping the place top secret!
