1: Do you try to stay away from walkthroughs?
Yes. Unless I’ve beaten the game before and just can’t remember where all the secrets are (LOOKING AT YOU, ALL OF THE FFX CLOISTER OF TRIALS) I won’t use a walkthrough. There’s been plenty of times I’ve missed content because I didn’t explore an area and didn’t realize you couldn’t get back to it.
4: Worst game you’ve ever played?
That’s a really difficult question. I like to joke around the FFX-2 doesn’t exist (it really doesn’t to me), but “worst” game? Geez. That’s tough. Jaws on the NES was pretty bad. I purged that from my memory.
5: A popular series/game you just can’t get into no matter how much you try?
Skyrim. The Elder Scrolls. Sorry guys. I just can’t do it. When you have to mod a game for it to be beautiful, that’s not a good game. We all have different tastes, and Skyrim/TES just isn’t mine. Yes, I’ve played it. No, I’m not going to play it again. I don’t want to. This also goes for the GTA series. Not a fan. GTAV came in like a whirlwind and now I hear nothing of it. Doesn’t seem that fantastic to me.
6: A game that’s changed you the most?
Probably Kingdom Hearts. I know, I know. You guys are gonna be like “Baaahahahaha you fuckin’ nerd”. Yeah yeah. There’s a reason I got a KH tattoo. Honestly, that game kind of sparked a lot of things in myself and in my life. It seems silly, but that game is the reason I went to the college I did. Through that I met some amazing people. And even with that game, on a forum I was a part of, there was a KH RP going on which I joined. Also brought me to some fantastic people. There’s more to it, but yeah, to say I like that game is an understatement.
11: Hardest game you’ve played?
Ninja Gaiden on Xbox. Holy fuck. That game. That game makes me so damn angry. Also, Dead or Alive 4. That fucking last boss. Oh. My god. Mario Party is also the hardest game ever. It tears apart friendships. Brenna and I have a true friendship, we survived several rounds of Mario Party. We are 5evur <3
17: What game do you never tell people you play?
I can’t really think of any games that I hide from people. Any games considered “girly” don’t bother me because well…I’m a girl. I don’t really tell people I play racing games I guess? I know my NY friends are like “BAHAHAH YOU LIAR” but that’s because I’m a cocky asshole who’s like ‘LOL YOU GUYS WANNA RACE ME?!’ They know the chaos of that. I guess people don’t know that I’ve played DDR for a long ass time. I’m not phenomenal, but I play about 95% of songs on heavy. So I guess there’s that?
23: Biggest disappointment you’ve had in gaming?
The times Square released a KH game on a different console that I didn’t have. WHY?! WHY SQUARE?! WHY DO YOU DO THIS TO MEEEEEEEEEEEEE?!
29: Which is more important, gameplay or story?
Lol, if you don’t know me, I’m a fan of RPGs. I love the characters, the dilemmas they’re placed in, the way they react. I love the story. And I know everyone gives FFX shit and KH shit for being too weird or too whiny or too unrealistic, but c’mon! It’s a fantasy world! We wouldn’t react the same in their world either. Some people are whiny. Probably some of you whining about the characters being too whiny….are too whiny yourself. And you just don’t see it. Tidus isn’t that annoying. Sora is a kid. Take a step back and look at the shit these characters go through. But yeah, I love the stories and the messages behind it and all the characters. Even the ones you’re supposed to hate. Gameplay is a big thing too, so if I want a gameplay solid game, I’ll go play it. If I want a story driven game, I’ll go play that too. But story takes the cake.
