Bleaghhh: He didn't have an avatar on Blogger, so I tracked him down on Steam. How many Bleaghhh's can there be living in England?!
My home country is… England
My age is… 19
The first adventure game I played was… I think it may well have been the telltale Sam and Max. I have a feeling I played an adventure game of sorts on the SNES, but I forget the name and never really got that far.
My favourite adventure game is… Hmm, a difficult one. I think Ben There, Dan That. I just love the humor put into it.
Ben There, Dan That: Proof that adventure games haven't changed much
When I’m not playing games I like to… Watch films, TV series, spending time with my girlfriend and my dog.
I like my games in (a box, digital format)… I'm perfectly happy to have digital format games, I especially like Steam, as I can never lose them, but for really special games I will buy a physical copy, just to have it.
The thing I miss about old games is… 2D ... I like 2D games with simplistic graphics, so you can see where everything is. Also, simplicity, a game doesn't have to be that complex to be fun. The original Crash Bandicoot games are some of my absolute favourites, but they wouldn't sell as triple A series nowadays. Luckily, the indie scene seems to be having an effect here, with releases like VVVVVV and Super Meat Boy.
Nobody loves Dr. Fetus, a fetus in a jar clad in a tuxedo, so Dr. Fetus hates everybody...especially Meat Boy.
The best thing about modern games is… the ease of use. I know now that if I buy a new game, I won't have to read a 50 page manual to understand what I'm getting into. It's a lot easier now to put all the story and controls parts into the actual game. To clarify, I am by no means against manuals, in fact I'm dissapointed if I buy a boxed game and it doesn't come with one. I just want what's in there to be optional, bonus stuff, not a necessity. Also THANK GOD UI's have gotten easier to use.
The one TV show I never miss is… Hmm .. a hard one .. At the moment it's Bones or Grimm .. but when The Walking Dead or Doctor Who or Misfits come back it may well be one of those.
Fairy tales are so in right now! I haven't heard of this one. Looks interesting!
If I could see any band live it would be… I'd love to see Slayer live... but as secondarys, Against Me!, and System Of A Down wouldn't be far behind. I've already seen a couple I was desperate to see and would love to see again, Rise Against and Trivium.
My favourite movie is… This used to be a hard question for me to answer. I love films, spanning nearly all genres. Now though, I realise my favourite film is Shaun Of The Dead. It's the only film I am always in the mood to watch.
I love this movie! Comedy horror gold!
One thing of note, I'm probably a lot younger than your average audience, so my comparisons of old games may be very different to many of theirs. The first console I personally owned was a PS1 and gameboy pocket (the yellow one!), but I do have experience of SNES's and older PC games.
