    Favorite video game music?

    Whenever I'm asked this question, my answer is always Oblivion's soundtrack, hands down. There's something about it that really struck a chord with me when I was playing the game on my Xbox during high school. Anymore it has such a nostalgic feeling for me, and just listening to it makes me want...

    I'm the same way. I used to monitor Steam sales like a hawk when I still in college. I have so many games I've accumulated since then that I haven't even played yet, so I'm in the same boat as you. They do a good job at drawing you in because you can get trading cards for voting on titles and...

    Anymore, I think it's a necessity for PC gamers to have Steam profiles. One of the things that blew me away about the gaming community on PC was how affordable the games were. It seems like Steam runs sales at any opportunity they can. Winter, summer, autumn, weekend sales, etc. And it's not odd...

    Why do you choose PC over console?

    Well, I wouldn't go so far as to say you can play ALL console games on PC. Granted, if you wanted to go through the trouble, you could probably find ways to play console exclusive games on the PC, but I don't think that's what should be done. I love PC gaming, but I've been thinking about...

    Your First PC Game

    Oh wow, this is a tough one to answer. I think one of my very first computer games was Chris Sawyer's Rollercoaster Tycoon. In fact, I still like to come back and play it every once in a while to wind down! Other games that I started out with were Dungeon Siege and Stronghold Crusader. That's...

    Why do you choose PC over console?

    A lot of what drew me to PC gaming was the upkeep on my desktop. I liked the idea of just having to upgrade parts of my rig instead of having to buy a new console every several years. Don't get me wrong, I still like console gaming, but when I found out the Playstation and Xbox weren't going to...

    Do you think about you the games you play

    In terms of thinking about the games I play, I'll sometimes think about League of Legends at work or school, usually when I'm bored. It gives me something to look forward to in the evenings when all of my friends are off work and able to play as well. This isn't disruptive to my day-to-day...

    Games That You Always Come Back To

    I always come back to League of Legends, Rollercoaster Tycoon (the original Chris Sawyer version) and Stronghold Crusader. It's interesting, I have a game from three different genres that are like the "staples" of my video game diet. I play League of the most, which is a MOBA I'll play with...

    Your Favourite Superhero Video Game

    I've really only played the Batman games on PC, and they were a real blast! Something about being able to sneak around while also going in "guns ablazing" was really cool. The atmosphere of the franchise really stayed true to the Batman theme, in my opinion as well.

    Too old to play games?

    Absolutely not, I don't think you're ever too old to play games. I consider video games the same as movies or music, you're never too old to enjoy your favorite type of entertainment. So long as you enjoy what you're doing, I think you should be allowed to enjoy it for as long as you'd like!

    PC Gaming

    This is the exact reason I got into PC gaming. Yes, the startup for building your PC might be a little pricey, but as time goes on, I think it's far cheaper to upgrade your PC than to buy new consoles (and all new sets of games if the new console isn't backwards compatible). My PC games are...

    Favorite Pokemon Game?

    So my all time favorite Pokemon game was Ruby on the Gameboy. However, since we're talking about the 3DS here, I think I'd have to go with Platinum as my favorite. I think it stayed really true to the Pokemon formula, and I really enjoyed all of the new pokemon introduced in the generation. I'm...

    What game do you have the most hours on?

    I think Killing Floor is the game I've logged the most time into. I have over 200 hours in it right now. I used to play all night with my friends on the weekends when I was in high school, so I put a lot of time into it before the second game came out. It has a really nostalgic feeling for me now!

    What games are you currently into?

    I'm really only into League of Legends at the moment. Between work and school, I don't have a lot of time to play games, so I'll play League with friends two or three nights out of the week. When I was in high school and early college, I used to play a lot of first person shooter and strategy...

    As a PC gamer, what is your opinion on controllers?

    Racing games are a great point. I've never been into anything like Need for Speed or Dirt, but I have played a little Rocket League. That's one of the few games I've found to be much, much easier to play with a controller. I could definitely see sports games being easier to play with a...
