A meme from Girl_Gamers

1) What was your FIRST video game console?
The old Atari 2600. I'm OLD school.

2) Name a few games you played on said console.
I was so young, I actually liked that POS Pac-Man port. I also played a lot of Maze Craze, Joust, and an obscure game called Phoenix.

3) Excluding handhelds, how many VG consoles do you own presently?
Excluding handhelds? Hmmm... 2600, NES, SNES, Genesis, N64, PS1, PS2, Dreamcast, Gamecube, Wii, and a 360... eleven.

4) Were you a Street Fighter nut? Any character in particular?
Super Street Fighter II: Turbo is still on the list of the best three fighters I've ever played (with Soul Calibur on the Dreamcast and Garou: Mark of the Wolves), and Cammy's my best fighter.

5) Do you think Capcom is a F---ING awesome company with kickass character designs?
Let's not start sucking each other's popsicles just yet. They're a good company, not "awesome" (that's companies like Valve that release quality title after quality title). As for their character designs? Their last few original characters that they didn't steal from Clover were all in the Mega Man universe, and they're terrible 4Kids anime archetypes.

6) Here's the scenario.. You had some friends over and you all ate FRIED CHICKEN! After the meal you all decide to play some video games. As your friend reaches for a controller you notice his/her hands are very "greasy." Are you the type that would insist they wash their hands before pawing the controller, or is it no big deal?
I'd just hand him a paper towel and ask him to be decent about it. I do the same thing.

7) What's your favorite RPG/Action RPG?
I think, with some hindsight, that Suikoden V has reached the top of that list, but it's a short list of Final Fantasy VI, Chrono Trigger, Phantasy Star IV and Suikoden V.

8) Do you prefer 2D games or 3D games?
Whatever doesn't suck.

9) Are you an SNK fan?
I'm a fan. Not a fanatic. Give me more Shock Troopers and that could change.

10) Are you good at DDR?
BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA... please. I use DDR for one reason: to get down my girlfriend's pants. Ironically, she uses it for the same reason: to get into mine. I say we just fuck, and save myself the embarrassment.

11) Who wants to kick that dog's ass from Duck Hunt?
Who doesn't? The arcade version is superior simply because it lets you do just that!

12) Have you skipped out on important events in life because of video games?
Unless work counts, no.

13) Do you listen to video game music?
I'm sorry, I couldn't hear you over the soundtrack for the Ys III remake.

14) Have you ever cosplayed a VG character?
GOD no.

15) Have you ever been in an arcade playing a fighting game, KICKING ASS, and then some 6 year old Asian kid comes in and OWNS YOU??
I typically am not good at arcade fighters. I was raised on control pads.

16) Name three games you would love to see remakes of if it was done properly.
GoldenEye, a proper remake of Final Fantasy VI (like they did for FFIV), and Phantasy Star II. Ignore the fact that they already DID Phantasy Star II and just won't release it here because Japan hates us and wants to shove PSO down our throats. I can dream.

17) Mario or Sonic?
Bubsy! I was a Sonic kid, actually. But it's time to retire the little shit.

18) When a movie shows up in the theaters, let's use Spider-man as an example, are you likely to buy the GAME version?
FUCK no. Are you serious? The last movie games that I played that were any good were the first Spiderman game for the PS2, and before that, bloody BATMAN for the NES. Yes, Michael Keaton era Batman.

19) What is your LEAST favorite genre of video games? (ex. fighting, sports, shooters, etc.)
Point and click adventure.

20) Is there a game out there that you feel was unique and didn't get enough love?
Little Nemo: The Dream Master was an underrated gem for the NES.

21) Have you ever verbally abused a game because you couldn't beat one of the levels and/or bosses?
Yes, and if throwing the controller counts, physically as well.

22) Do you own any VG apparel?
I'm wearing a Zelda shirt. What does that say?

23) What are your thoughts on the live-action Super Mario Bros movie?
"The worst thing I ever did? Super Mario Brothers. It was a fuckin' nightmare. The whole experience was a nightmare. It had a husband-and-wife team directing, whose arrogance had been mistaken for talent. After so many weeks their own agent told them to get off the set! Fuckin' nightmare. Fuckin' idiots." - Bob Hoskins, interview with The Guardian, Aug. 3, 2007

24) On that note, what did you think about the live-action Street Fighter movie?
At least this movie was funny in a campy way. SMB was tragic.

25) Who's hottest out of the KOF chicks?
Uh... am I supposed to care? I'll go with Mai with an option to change that pick, I guess.

26) Do you say "old-school" a lot when you're having a VG conversation with others?
Oh, hell yeah. I annoy the younger gamers. XD

27) Have you ever lent someone a game and they returned it to you damaged?
Yep.

28) Do you own any imported games?
Yes.

29) In this scenario, let's pretend you're going to get a video game tattoo! What would you get and where?
One of the True Runes from the Suikoden series.

30) Have you ever cried after you beat a game? If so why?
Beating? No. But during? ONCE. That was when Alys Brangwen died in Phantasy Star IV (I hadn't played through PSII yet to see Nei die)

Hundred? Not quite. Eighty-something, I believe, but KOF XII is scaling back the roster a bit.

I'm the fanatic 'round these parts. :-)

And Mai's a tad overrated, IMO, but she did introduce 'bounce' to fighters.
