Hopefully I’ll be getting my xbox fixed soon. When I do, I’ll post my gamertag in the forums.
HOW MUCH TIME DO YOU DEVOTE TO GAMING?
My average day is about 4-5 hours of gaming. However, since I’m not at school it’s been nearer to 6-7 hours.
WHAT ARE YOU CURRENTLY PLAYING?
I am playing many games at the moment. My main priorities are the Sly trilogy and NBA 2K11. These games are taking up a huge portion of my time. I’ve also been known to dabble in Minecraft every now and then.
WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE TYPES OF GAMES?
I can’t actually answer that because there isn’t a single type of game genre I prefer. To me, the story has to be good. I love playing Final Fantasy. Although the gameplay may be grinding, it’s the story that keeps me interested.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE VIDEO GAME ACHIEVEMENT/TROPHY?
It’s very simple to get, but is the only achievement that made me chuckle to myself. It was on Skate 2 and the achievement is called “Gender Bender”. It requires you to change your skater’s sex, but is the only achievement that has always stuck with me.
IF YOU COULD LIVE THE LIFE OF A VIDEO GAME CHARACTER FOR A DAY, WHO WOULD IT BE AND WHY?
Sly Cooper from the Sly trilogy. He’s a very witty character with skills unmatched by even the greatest ninja. Heck, he even learned to slide on laser beams. All of this in a raccoon’s body, what could be better?
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE VIDEO GAME OF ALL TIME AND WHY?
This question took me a long time to answer. I’ve been asked this question before and my answer changes every time. Final Fantasy X because the story was compelling and the combat was very simple and fun. I feel I also have to mention Kingdom Hearts. Its story was amazing and it was very creative how they fused Final Fantasy with Disney. And then there’s Minecraft: the ultimate sandbox game.
WHAT’S THE ONE THING YOU WOULD LIKE THE READERS OF THAT GAMER HUB TO KNOW ABOUT YOU?
When I’m addicted to gaming I get thinner and when I don’t play as many games, I gain weight rapidly. I also know Spence in real life and have handed his ass to him in Team Fortress 2. Just sayin’…
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE FEATURE ON THAT GAMER HUB?
They’re all great. From the forums and the people there to Minecraft Adventures which got me to come to the site. At the moment, my favorite thing is Game Night which I’ve taken part in and Browser Game Of The Week. If Spence started writing more Minecraft Adventures, they would probably be my favorite.
We would like to thank Dabear535 for taking part in The Community Spotlight and our website! We look forward to hearing more from him (and all of you) in the future!
