About Us: The Gamer Tag
To help you get to know us a bit more, we've filled in a video game questionnaire which we've seen doing the rounds online. We've been gaming all our lives, so we often have different answers - they're colour-coded where necessary. Feel free to do the survey yourself, and give us a mention if you do!
1. What is your all-time favourite video game?
Resident Evil series - it's too hard to pick just one, but the first and third are our absolute faves.
2. What is your current favourite video game?
Gems Of War - stupidly addictive and tactical, it's kept us away from our bought PS4 games. Oops!
3. What is your favourite video game genre?
Third-person action adventure games. We also love puzzle games and driving games, and most sports... we like lots!
4. How long have you been playing video games?
Louise: Since we got our first family computer, so since my early teens. Ooh, that's twenty-ish years. I feel old!
Gareth: Since I first visited the arcade under the car park at Penarth beach. I spent many a Saturday afternoon playing Paperboy and Track & Field in the mid-80s.
5. What's the first game you ever played?
Louise: Blox by Gray Cluely - a Tetris rip-off on the cover floppy from a PC magazine.
Gareth: Donkey Kong II Game & Watch, which I still have.
6. What game have you clocked the most hours into?
Resident Evil Revelations - Raid Mode has taken over 300 hours on PS3 alone (we also have it on 3DS).
Louise: I also racked up 110+ hours on Pokemon Yellow until my GameBoy Color died :(
7. What's your longest gaming session?
An all-day session collecting horeshoes in Grand Theft Auto San Andreas on PS2. We don't do well on no sleep, so we're usually tucked up in bed at a semi-reasonable hour.
8. Who is your favourite game developer?
Sega - for the Dreamcast library alone
9. Who is your favourite hero character from a game?
10. Who is your favourite villain?
Albert Wesker - he gets cheesier by the game, but nothing beats him shooting bees in the corridor of the outhouse in the original Resident Evil.
11. Who is your most hated character of any game?
We love him really, but Tony Hawk refused to do as he was told in his first game on Dreamcast, resulting in much cursing and an unrepeatable nickname, which remains to this day.
12. What gaming platforms do you own?
ZX Spectrum +2A, Sega Megadrive, Saturn, Dreamcast, Sony PlayStation (PSX and PSOne), PS2, PS3, PS4, PSP, Nintendo 64, GameCube, Wii, GameBoy Color, 3DS, Xbox, Xbox 360, PC, Android tablet, various LCD games... we think that's it!
13. What was your first game platform?
Gareth: Not counting Arcade machines, ZX Spectrum +2A
14. What's your favourite gaming platform and why?
Too hard to choose as each one has so many memories of various happy times. We do have particular soft spots for the Dreamcast, PS4, ZX Spectrum and Megadrive.
15. Do you prefer to play guy characters, or girl characters?
Louise: Usually guys
Gareth: Usually girls - I'm comfortable with my manliness! :)
16. Do you follow walkthroughs, or do you play through on your own?
Once upon a time we used walkthroughs and tips, but found that they often left out important information. Seeing as we were forced to think for ourselves anyway, we got better over time and now write our own for others to enjoy!
17. Have you ever been to a gaming convention?
Only outside ComiCon in Cardiff, if that counts!
18. What game are you most excited for to come out in the future?
Tom Clancy's The Division - we've already been loving the Beta.
19. What's your best memory of a video game?
Being chased by Nemesis in Resident Evil 3. The click of the door handle and the roar of "STARS" made us turn it off and vow never to play Resi at night. We still don't, thanks to characters like the Communications Officer in Resident Evil Revelations. May Daaaaaaaaaaaaaaay!
20. What's your worst memory of a video game?
Not being able to go back and level up after activating the final boss in Encharted Arms. To paraphrase Apache Indian, Auto Save - it is not good! :(
Burning our pasta and ruining a saucepan after getting distracted during the infamous horeseshoe session in GTA San Andreas. Also throwing and breaking a controller after becoming infuriated by the remote control bomb mission!
A bug in the PC version of Tomb Raider Chronicles that made it impossible to complete.
21. Which video game character do you see yourself as, or if you had to be represented by a video game character, who would it be?
Louise: Lara Coft - I finally got hair as long as Lara and she cut hers!
Gareth: Vin Diesel in Wheelman - Milo Burik - as I have no hair. Consider it done!
