I was nominated for a couple of blogging awards- here are my responses to their questions!
Yesterday, I answered the questions set to me by Pix1001 of Shoot the Rookie when she nominated me for the Sunshine Blogger Award. Today, I’ll be the answering the second set of questions put to me by Robert Ian Shepard of Adventure Rules when he did the same. Just as before, I’ll be nominating 11 more nominees, with my own questions for them.
- How would you pitch your content to someone who might be reading it for the first time right now?
Most of the time it’s about video games – often driving games – but sometimes about the Marvel Cinematic Universe if I need to fill space (because I’m not ashamed of doing that).
- Do you prefer beginnings or endings?
Endings, definitely. I’ve started every video game I’ve played but reached the ending much less often. Like any good story, the ending is the most important part.
- What video game or series do you not like, but wish you did?
The only games I tend to play are titles that I can already tell I’ll like but if I ever wanted to branch out, I’d start playing Final Fantasy. I only “don’t like it” in the sense that I haven’t played it, which is as close to an answer as I can get to this question.
- If you could choose a character type to be in any game world (e.g. an RPG class), what would you be?
The getaway driver. The actual job I’ll leave to the others, because I’m not good at confrontations, but nobody’s better at getting them out of a tight spot than me (so long as I get my cut).
- Have you ever stopped having a crush on a character you used to? What changed?
No, I’m still a sexually repressed creep.
- If you could revive a fallen franchise, which series would you choose?
I’m currently in the final stages of editing a documentary about the Driver series and why it deserves to be brought back.
- If you had to stop being human but could choose a video game race to become, what would you choose?
Night elf from Warcraft. I mean, come on! They’re so sexy!
- If you could port all of the console exclusives off of one of the big three (Nintendo, Sony, Microsoft) and put them onto another console, which ones would you choose?
All the Xbox exclusives onto PlayStation. There’s such little difference between them apart from corporate ownership anyway, and I’ve little interest in Nintendo products.
- Which universe from another medium (film, comics, etc) do you want as a well-executed video game?
The plot of Avengers: Infinity War as a fighting game. Think about it…
- What magical item or technological marvel from a video game would you use for completely selfish purposes in real life?
The P-JAK Multi-Tool from Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. It can hack basically any computer device, which means, applied with appropriate intelligence, I could use it to bring the world to its knees or become a modern Robin Hood.
- What video game quote do you bust out in normal life most often?
“Why hasn’t someone sensible shot you yet?”
Trevor Philips, Grand Theft Auto V
