Originally a Tumblr post, I decided to bring this over to the site, but with pictures and stuff.
There's going to be a lot of Zelda and Final Fantasy VII. Just fair warning.
Here’s a little something for the gamers out there. =]
1. Very first video game.
Super Mario Bros./Duck Hunt for NES. Classic.
2. Your favorite character
RED, from Pokemon Green/Red/Blue/Yellow. He’s what an S.S. Anne crew member calls “le strong, silent type!”
3. A game that is underrated.
The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask. Probably my second favorite Zelda game ever.
4. Your guilty pleasure game.
Pokemon Stadium. FUCKING CHAMP AT RUN RATTATA RUN.
5. Game character you feel you are most like (or wish you were).
Barret, from Final Fantasy VII. He’s more of a loner than a people person, but he’s…relatively okay with people, and he’s loyal to his friends and family. Also, I’m a big, buff black guy with a gun on my arm.
6. Most annoying character.
Every character after Shadow (and sometimes Shadow) in Sonic the Hedgehog. ALL YOU FUCKING NEED IS SONIC AND TAILS AND MAYBE KNUCKLES AND SHADOW. ALL YOU FUCKING NEED!
7. Favorite game couple.
Link and Zelda. Because they’re friends AND a couple. I mean, c’mon. That’s how a relationship SHOULD be.
8. Best soundtrack.
Zelda as a franchise. Have you not been paying attention?
9. Saddest game scene.
WHEN AERIS DIES IN FINAL FANTASY VII. T^T
10. Best gameplay.
Super Mario Bros. 3 and A Link to the Past. Simply amazing.
11. Gaming system of choice.
12. A game everyone should play.
A Link to the Past. You must finish that game.
13. A game you’ve played more than five times.
Off the top of my head:
Final Fantasy VII
The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
Uncharted 2: Among Thieves
Assassin’s Creed II
Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots.
14. Current (or most recent) gaming wallpaper.
15. Post a screenshot from the game you’re playing right now. -
16. Game with the best cut scenes.
Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots. Wonderfully directed, fantastic cinematography, and great acting. If it were live action, that’s movie quality storytelling.
17. Favorite antagonist.
It’s a tie between Sephiroth from Final Fantasy VII, the Government in Red Dead Redemption, and BLUE from Pokemon Green/Red/Blue/Yellow/Gold/Silver/Crystal.
18. Favorite protagonist.
It’s a tie between Link from The Legend of Zelda, every incarnation of Snake from Metal Gear Solid, and RED from Pokemon Green/Red/Blue/Yellow.
19. Picture of a game setting you wish you lived in. -
20. Favorite genre.
I don’t have one. I’m open to any kind of game, really, so long as it's good.
21. Game with the best story.
The Legend of Zelda. Simple and effective.
22. A game sequel which disappointed you.
Final Fantasy XIII. I don’t think it’s as BAD as most people say it is, but I do think it’s misguided. It tried to do too much and strayed too far from the formula. And while I enjoy experimentation, it was just too unfamiliar for me to enjoy as a Final Fantasy game. I think it was perfectly above average and deserves to be played by RPG lovers, but Final Fantasy fans and simply curious players should definitely stay away.
23. Game you think had the best graphics or art style.
Realistic graphics: Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception.
Art style: Bastion.
Retro graphics: The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past.
24. Favorite classic game.
The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past.
25. A game you plan on playing.
Assassin’s Creed III. The team behind Assassin’s Creed II (in my opinion, the best Assassin’s Creed to date) worked on AC: III and so I’m holding out hope that this game will right the wrongs of Revelations. I’m excited to see what they do with the wilderness elements.
26. Best voice acting.
Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots. Movie quality cinematography.
27. Most epic scene ever.
The “Paragon” ending of Bastion. It’s not so much a cutscene so much as it is a playable section that tells a story. And because you’re playing as it’s happening, you feel the emotion so much more.
28. Favorite game developer.
29. A game you thought you wouldn’t like, but ended up loving.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare as a series. I’m not big on FPS games. In fact, the only FPS games I played before COD4 were GoldenEye 007 and Turok 2: Seeds of Evil. I don’t see how I could hate GoldenEye 007, because that game is an instant classic (so many memories), but I thought Turok was just “okay,” so it really turned me off the first-person genre. Not only that, but FPS games always give me motion sickness headaches the first time I play them because I’m not accustomed to how they move. Even now, when I’m much better at them, I still have to sit down at least twice to play any FPS games: once so I can get the headache and then go to sleep and have it go away and then again later so I can actually play without getting a headache. It’s like that with EVERY FPS game I’ve ever played. GoldenEye 007 on PS3, COD4, MW2, Black Ops, MW3, BF3, MoH, and even (or rather, ESPECIALLY) TF2. Once for a headache, and then at least one more time to actually play the game. So yeah. That’s why I didn’t think I would like FPS games (and by extension, Call of Duty) in my lifetime.
30. Your favorite game of all time.
It’s a tie between The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past and Final Fantasy VII, though Bastion might just find its way up there.
If you stuck through to the end, then man. You're a trooper. I can't wait to read yours if you so choose to make one of these as well. =]
