1. What is your all-time favorite video game?
A couple of years ago I'd say Unreal (the first, single-player one). But now, all things considered, it has to be Skyrim. Hands down. The sheer amout of time I spent playing this game (or not even playing, just sightseeing) says it all. It's been installed on my computer for three years straight. Nothing like that has ever happened to me before.
2. What is your current favorite video game?
Still Skyrim. Even with Dragon Age: Inquisition out, and all.
3. What is your favorite video game genre?
RPG, action RPG, adventure.
4. How long have you been playing video games?
It's hard to say. As a child I hated video games, but still played some, and that was back in the early 90's, so if we count that, that would make over twenty years. The first game I really liked was Unreal. I was 17. The next one was "Soul Reaver 2" - I was 20. So it's not like I really played games. I just ocassionally jumped at specific titles I liked. I started playing more at the age of 23 or 24. So it's been about ten years of enthusiastic gaming.
5. What's the first game you ever played?
Gianna Sisters on C64 (?). There were some other games before that. I had one of those weird no-name console-like contraptions with a lot of preloaded games, and horrible, minimalistic graphics.
6. What game have you clocked the most hours into?
Skyrim. I can't say how many exactly, but I can safely estimate it's been thousands by now. Honestly.
7. What's your longest gaming session?
Ummm. Hard to say for sure. I was at some point perfectly able to start around noon and play almost non-stop until 4 or 5 a.m. the next day. But that was extreme even for me.
8. Who is your favorite game developer?
BioWare and Bethesda. I'm just typical like that.
9. Who is your favorite hero character from a game?
Taking only player characters into account, it would be Wei Shen (Sleeping Dogs). And Commander Shepard (Mass Effect) if played my favourite way
10. Who is your favorite villain?
Probably Sephiroth (Final Fantasy VII).
11. Who is your most hated character of any game?
I can't decide on one. Aerith (FF VII), Mission Vao (Knights of the Old Republic), Megan Reed (Deus Ex: Human Revolution)...
12. What gaming platforms do you own?
I use PC and PC only.
13. What was your first game platform?
14. What's your favorite gaming platform and why?
PC because PC. And because of the thriving modding community
15. Do you prefer to play guy characters, or girl characters?
Girls mostly, but not always. And if I can't choose, it's not a problem.
16. Do you follow walkthroughs, or do you play through on your own?
It depends. I try to play on my own, unless I'm stuck. I used to follow walkthroughs a lot, especially when playing adventure games, but I simply got better with time.
17. Have you ever been to a gaming convention?
I've been to a lot of conventions, never to a strictly game-oriented one.
18. What game are you most excited for to come out in the future?
19. What's your best memory of a video game?
I have some nice memories of watching my dad playing games, back when I was a kid. I also have a lot of lovely memories from my own playthroughs. If I have to choose one it's probably my first time playing Unreal, and hearing the music. It was pure magic.
20. What's your worst memory of a video game?
When I saw Neverhood for the first time, got all excited, tried playing it and couldn't get anywhere, because I didn't understand the idea of an adventure game. I got incredibly frustrated and sad.
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?
Isabela from Dragon Age 2. When it comes to looks, I WISH, but there are some aspects to her that I really like and/or can identify myself with
