The Gamer Tag!

I saw this tag over at A Geek Girl’s Guide and thought it would be fun to do! I’ve spoken a bit about my gaming history in my Introductions post, but this will give a bit more insight into my gaming habits.

This tag was originally created by ZombieGoddess Beauty, and without further ado…

1. What is your gamer tag?

I technically have several different ones, depending on what I’m using to play, but for Steam, I go as Tactician_M. Since starting this blog, I’ve been using TheGamersJourney more.

2. PC or Console?

Console, definitely. It’s what I use most, and I love how I can pull out an old console at any time and play a game that’s ages old whenever I feel nostalgic (which is a lot of the time).

3. Console of choice?

Right now: the PS4. I am really enjoying the games available for the system and how I have a lot to still look forward to.

4. Handheld of choice? (DS, PS Vita, etc.)

3DS. When it first came out, I was definitely in the camp of “why do I need another DS?” Oh how wrong I was. It’s home to some of my favorite games and I just love the whole feel of the handheld. I hope Nintendo keep making games for it, because I’m not quite ready to say goodbye.

5. Keyboard or Gamepad?

I don’t have a Gamepad for my computer, so keyboard I guess? In general, I much prefer a controller since it’s what I’m most used to using.

6. Singleplayer or Multiplayer?

When I was younger, I almost exclusively played multiplayer games (couch multiplayer), but since discovering my love of RPGs, I lean towards singleplayer. It’s been very recently (within the last year) that I’ve delved into the world of online multiplayer.

7. What was the first game you have ever played?

Mario Kart on the Nintendo 64. I’m sure I was playing some computer games around that time too, but for me, the credit still goes to Mario Kart.

8. Hardest game you have ever played?

I distinctly remember this one game my sister and I had as kids, called Master of the Elements. I don’t know if we skipped the instructions or something but we always felt completely lost and did not have a clue of what to do in it. Wonder what would happen now if we tried it out again….

9. What was your first gaming system?

Nintendo 64! My sister and I got it for Christmas one year.

10. What is your favorite game of all time?

I love a lot of different games for different reasons, so it would be hard for me to choose just one. Though, if asked which game I would play again and again without hesitation, it would probably be Fire Emblem: Awakening.

11. What game is currently your favorite?

This switches all the time, based on what I’m currently playing, but based on what I’ve been recently playing: Dishonored 2. Everything from the look of the game, to the music, to the gameplay, to the story, I’m at that stage where I’m eager to learn more about everything there is to that world.

12. Favorite video game genre?

I’ve mentioned before that I really love RPGs for their stories and characters, but also really enjoy simulation games (like The SimsHarvest Moon, etc.). There’s something relaxing about them where it’s less about navigating a story and more about “what do you want to do today?”

13. Favorite video game character?

It’s really difficult for me to choose one, but to narrow it down, I really love Bigby Wolf and Snow White from The Wolf Among Us. They’re true to their original fairy tale characterization but the adaptation also gives them their own distinct quirks and personalities. There may be also a slight bias from having read the Fables comics before the game was even announced. (Go read them if you haven’t already!)

14. Which video game character do you hate most?

Teddie from Persona 4. I don’t make it a habit of outright hating characters, but I really can’t stand him. I just found him annoying in every scene he was in.

15. What new game are you most excited for?

There’s a lot to look forward to this year, but since Persona 5 is coming out next week(!!), that’s what I’m currently most excited for.

16. Favorite video game company/developer?

I’ve really enjoyed the games Telltale Games has come out with, particularly the mechanics of how they choose to tell stories. BioWare is also a favorite for Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic and their Dragon Age series.

17. What gaming systems do you currently have?

Well… I probably have most generations of Nintendo consoles and handhelds starting with the Nintendo 64 and the GameBoy Color, except for the Wii U and the recent Switch. On the Playstation side, I have a PS3, PSP, and a PS4.

18. How long have you been gaming?

…about 20 years. I just did the math on that. Goodness, has it really been that long?

19. How long was your longest gaming session?

It can’t be more than 5-6 hours in one sitting. I’m not one for long game sessions, though sometimes I wish I could be.

20. What game have you clocked the most time on?

Fire Emblem: Awakening is probably the longest recorded time, with a lovely 370 hours played. Gotta get those support conversations. (And I used to think that the 100 hours on Pokemon Emerald was impressive….)
