What’s your favourite game of all time?
This is a tough one. I think for me it was Harry Potter and The Philosopher’s Stone on PS1. When I played the PS1 by myself it would always be that game. I must have completed it so many times, it was just so fun.
How have the later games in the franchise compared?
The second, Chamber of Secrets, was just as good as the first, but since then they have taken a real step backwards. I haven’t bothered with the Deathly Hallows Part 1 or 2, but the rest have been bad.
I think it is because the PS1 games only lightly followed the story, there were so many mini games, it was a lengthy game. All that has been lost in the later games
That makes a bit of sense. Later games also had a lot more book and film content to deal with, and the focus of the story switched too. With an interesting choice for favourite game, I’m hoping you’ve got a good answer for what the game you’re most embarrassed to have played is?
I don’t think this one is quite as bizarre. It’s a tie between Def Jam Icon and The Simpson’s Wrestling. Both astonishingly bad and both similar games. I’m not a fan of fighting games.
It’s more that you decided to buy and/or play them at all!
Def Jam Icon was my brother’s choice, he was going through a stage where he thought he was 50 Cent.
I really don’t know.
But he at least endeavoured to be 50 Cent as much as possible?
Oh yeah. G Unit shoes, T-shirts, chains and even went round with the nickname “Fiddy”, and I was referred to as 25 cent by his friends. I have such a great speech ready for whenever he does get married.
Well, only if he picks you to be the best man…
That’s true. If my brother sees this I’m a dead man. I’m kidding, but swiftly move along please!
As you request. What titles are you looking forward to in the rest of this year? And since we’re already half way through this release window, what have you already enjoyed?
Well of course Uncharted 3 and Battlefield 3, and a bit of Skyrim. Hopefully will have all three by Christmas. I have already played Dead Island, which just hasn’t got my attention at all. Resistance 3 is what I have mainly played recently which has been great, same for F1 2011.
Oh and El Shaddai, it’s really hard!
Wait, how could I forget Dark Souls? I want that game so much.
Are you getting BF3 this weekend?
That’s a bit of a shame. It’s been a rather hectic release month, it must be hard for many to get the money together.
I’ve got money, but I don’t wan’t to spend on games at the moment. I am currently saving for a holiday and car insurance.
Are you getting it this weekend? Am I allowed to ask back or have I ruined the system?[drop]
I ASK THE QUESTIONS HERE!!! I am getting this weekend, though. [Actually, turns out I’m not.]
That’s nice for you.
I should hope so! Well it depends on if it’s delivered promptly, really. Got it for £35 with some free boxer shorts, which was possibly the oddest offer I’ve seen online.
Am I reading this correctly? What’s the boxer decoration? Like a Harrier Jump Jet on them?
Oh, they’re not BF3 themed, sadly. Just some normal boxer shorts.
Would they be better with strategically placed missiles on them? Because that would make the offer less odd…
Haha, that’s made me laugh a lot!
You’re at the age where you’re coming to the end of your schooling. Do you have a particular route you plan to head with further education? Wishes, hopes, dreams?
You know the education system well. In my A2 year doing Biology, Maths and Geography. I’m looking to do Zoology at Swansea, and then after that another degree in Palaeontology. I’d love to work for the BBC.
Sounds quite cool. Were you inspired by nature shows and dinosaur movies?
Huge fan of Documentaries. Frozen Planet is on tonight! [Wednesday]
I had an interview to be on Springwatch a few years ago in the BBC studio, and I love everything about dinosaurs.
Favourite pre-historic period. GO!
What was around at that point?
It was around 300 Ma, so before the dinosaurs. Ended with a mass extinction 254 Ma which I am doing a 5000 word essay on at the moment in college.
Oh, so you’ve managed to bring your favourite time period into your studies directly. That’s great.
Yeah! It was my own choice.
Well I’m sure we all look forward to you being the next Attenborough or Dr. Alan Grant, and on TV shows in 10 years time. Do you have any final words for the readers?
Thanks for reading, your a lovely bunch of people.
Thanks to Origami Killer for being interviewed. I’ll see you next week for the next one!
