My home country is… USA, the California part.
My age is… 31ish
The first adventure game I played was… probably a text adventure: Adventure, Quest, or Zork; whatever my dad was playing at the time, I suspect I banged on the keyboard enough to enter a command or two myself. I think the first adventure game I played on my own was Space Quest, but I didn't get very far.
I played Zork for the first time a couple of years back. Still enjoyable today!
When I’m not playing games I like to… play games ;)... board games, card games, whatever games. Life is a game. I like many things, but mostly games, puzzles, and learning. I like learning so much that I often forget things just to learn them all over again. ;)
I like my games in (a box, digital format)… I prefer to have a manual to read while I'm away from the game, or to look up a quick reference while my game is paused. For the game itself I don't mind if I have a physical copy or not.
My favourite adventure game is… Simon the Sorcerer for its ability to bring such joy to me and my siblings. A lot of the jokes from that game became inside jokes between us. My sister will probably never see this, but LANTBUNZ! (Rot13+mirrored for Trickster's protection...you'll know it when you get there).
The thing I miss about old games is… What's there to miss? Most of them are readily available. Probably the thing I miss most is the time to play them. Something about playing old games back when they were new gave the impression of having all the time in the world to enjoy them.
The best thing about modern games is… I'm not sure. I don't play many modern games. I don't think I have a good comment here.
The one TV show I never miss is… How I Met Your Mother. I like a dose of levity to go with life.
I hear about this show a lot, but tend to avoid sitcoms. What makes this one different? Is that Willow?
If I could see any band live it would be… The Beatles. Closest I ever got was watching The Yellow Submarine.
My favourite movie is… hard to pick, but here's a few I could stand to re-watch: Memento, Frailty, American Psycho, Se7en, and the Usual Suspects... I'm sure there are others I'm forgetting.
Frailty: It seems we have similar taste in movies Zenic. I'm also attracted to the dark and the disturbing.
One interesting thing about me is… I'm deranged enough to think I can play through all console RPGs ;). I had the idea of playing through all console RPGs prior to learning of Chet and Trickster, but their dedication strengthened my resolve to catalog my efforts. Maybe I'll do something interesting someday.
