How long is your perfect gaming session?
1. What is your first gaming memory?
The one that first springs to mind is playing Pong. Now I’m younger than this may suggest, but this was bought by my grandparents and kept in their loft for however many years. Anyway once I got old enough they gave it to my parents to show me and I loved playing it with my friends.
2. Who is your all time favourite sidekick?
I really didn’t know who to pick here. Choosing a side kick is difficult. It partially depends on who you define as a sidekick. I’m going to say Oracle in the Batman games because she is awesome and although not directly involved she helps in such an important way.
3. Batman vs Superman, who wins?
Got to say Superman here. Batman is great but he is all tech and upgrades but at the end of the day he is just a man. Superman on the other hand has abilities as a non-human character who could win.
4. When did you first decide you wanted to write/blog?
A few years ago I thought about blogging, then the feeling passed as I didn’t think I had much to say or post so gave up on that. Last year obviously I started this blog, but I had thought about starting a gaming blog on and off for about 6 months to a year before actually starting it. When it got to about June I had decided I would actually do it even though it took me until August to actually create a WordPress account and you know start the blog.
5. What was your first blog post?
6. If you could live in any video game universe, which one would you choose?
Probably the Pokémon universe. I’ve loved these games since first playing Pokémon Blue and I would love to travel around the regions and between regions to see the Pokémon in the wild. Though if it was less dangerous, I would love to visit the Mass Effect universe, travelling from planet to planet and learning about the cultures there.
7. If you could have any movie turned into a video game, which movie and why?
I don’t watch too many films these days but I have a couple of ideas. Harry Potter films, well more specifically the Harry Potter universe, as a role playing game as a new student. Exploring the locations and being able to progress as a witch/wizard in the world and interact with the characters from the books/films. I know this sort of idea has come up before but still haven’t had it yet. Second idea would be something from the Marvel universe but undecided on what film or what I would want from that.
8. How many hours did you spend on your longest marathon gaming session?
I am honestly not sure. This probably happened years back as I don’t get to do this now. I probably spent around 10 hours in the longest session. I seem to remember staying up until the early hours gaming so starting in the evening would probably mean it would be about that long.
9. When is the best time of day to play video games?
I mainly get to play in the evenings if I get the chance so probably have to go with that. Although the mornings at weekends are pretty good too.
10. How long is your perfect gaming session?
I really don’t get a lot of time to play in one session so if I could make it to 3 hours that would probably be perfect. Though give me some extra hours in the day and I’d add some time to that.
Onto the nominees… like I have said this is getting difficult and will be less than the suggested number. Feel no obligation to do this by the way!
