Pacpix: No need to ask where this avatar comes from!
My home country is... USA
My age is… 16
The first adventure game I played was… Scooby-Doo Show Down In Ghost Town is the one I have the most memories of. It might have been a Putt Putt game though.
There's at least one Scooby Doo game on the list, but I don't think this one is
My favourite adventure game is… I have not played very many adventure games, until I found this blog I always thought the Zelda series would be considered an adventure game. If I had to pick one it would be Deja Vu on the NES. I prefer the first person perspective style of the MacVenture games compared to games like Beneath a Steel Sky. I still need to play Uninvited and Deja Vu II.
When I’m not playing games I like to… Watch the Seattle Mariners on TV or spend the day reading about video game history
Baseball is not very popular in Australia, but as a cricket fan I can see the appeal
I like my games in (a box, digital format)… I definitely prefer physical copies of my games. I also collect games so I like having a physical item I can display and it is fun to look for them at pawn shops. I buy my movies and CDs physical too. You can see my collection here: vgcollect.com/pacpix (They have an awesome forum community too if you are interested!)
The thing I miss about old games is… I wish that the newer games were more difficult and did not hold the players hand so much. I'm not saying every game needs to be as hard as Wizardry(I just beat this finally!), but I would like a better challenge.
You mean this Wizardry? That's a big achievement! I'll just be happy with my Manhunter 2 completion.
The best thing about modern games is… The graphics. I spent hours just walking through Oblivion looking around at everything.
The one TV show I never miss is… I don't really watch a whole lot of TV except for Mariners Baseball and Seahawks Football. I usually watch Pawn Stars every week though.
If I could see any band live it would be… I would have to go to a Weird Al/Sepultura/Katatonia/Metallica/Five Finger Death Punch/Death/Anathema/The Cars/Judas Priest/Modest Mouse/Black Sabbath/The Sword Concert :)
Would it be mean of me to tell you that I saw Katatonia with Opeth in Sydney a couple of weeks back?
My favourite movie is… Ghostbusters, followed closely by Kung Pow Enter the Fist and UHF
One interesting thing about me is… I can sleep through a Doom/Death metal alarm at full volume. I also enjoy really stupid puns and antijokes.
