It’s Thursday everyone!
I have my first interview! While not very long.. it is my first one, and very last minute 🙂
I have some feelers out to interview some other people – but I have not gotten responses from some of them ( though I do have some others! Going to get that shit organized!)
I messaged @PaoloPace – who worked on Splinter Cell: Blacklist. Go ahead an tweet at him to let me interview him! Annnd…
I was able to interview my roommate and fellow gamer: George. He wasn’t able to stick around (as he works like a mad-man), but I was able to send him a batch of questions through text – that he took the time out of his day to answer. He is so sweet!
The (short) batch of questions I thought up on the fly to ask him:
Robyn: At what age did you start playing video games?
George: Started playing at age 4
R: Do you own many consoles? If so – which ones?
G: Yes – PS3, SNES, NES, PC, APPLE2, CAMECUBE, COLECOVISION
R: Ohh? What is Coleco Vision?
G: It’s a console that came out about the same time frame as the Atari 2600
R: If you had to choose a specific genre to play – which would it be?
G: Favorite genre is RPG’s
R: Think back to ancient times – What was your favorite game?
G: Favorite game: Final Fantasy 7
R: Do you use video games as a way to relieve stress?
G: Yes. *insert look of disbelief that I would ask this question this morning)
R: What about them helps?
G: Video games are a stress relief because I can escape from the idiots that populate this world. All the lies and attempts and manipulation is tiring. I’m just going to forget these people exist and slay a dragon.
R: In your opinion – what is the biggest myth in mainstream media today, regarding video games (and their use)?
G: Myth – violence in video games leads to violence in the world. More like shitty parenting leads to violence in the world.
R: Gamer girls – Hot or Not?
G: Gamer girls being hot is a generalization, hot girls are hot. What makes them hot is in the eyes of the beholder.
R: Last – but definitely the most important…. How awesome do you think I am? (Seriously – it’s a question for the blog)
G: Pretty damn awesome. Now go play some games.
So that was the first – SHORT, and basic interview. Please comment and let me know what other questions I should ask in the future! Also – make sure you sign up to get my new posts! I have an epic list of topics coming up – you wont want to miss out!
