What is your Gamertag and the reason for choosing it?
My Gamertag is IFlyLikeWoosh. It’s actually named after the character Hiro in the series Heroes on NBC. He said the line and it immediately became my favorite saying ever!
What is your favorite genre of games and why?
If I had to choose, I probably play First Person Shooters the most! Who doesn’t love a great teabag on Halo or an Über kill streak on Call of Duty!
What is your favorite game of all-time?
It has to be Super Mario 64! First game I ever beat and I have put more hours into that game than any series of games in my life!
What is your most memorable gaming moment?
Christmas morning when I was 8 years old! I woke up to find a Nintendo 64 with my name on it under the Christmas tree. I freaked out more than the famous 64 kid on YouTube!
What was your most frustrating achievement to obtain? In hindsight, was it worth it?
That would be two kills from the grave on Orbital in Halo 3! It was one of my last achievements to complete Halo 3 100% so yes, definitely worth it!
What is the longest time you’ve spent trying to get an achievement?
I spent over a month of Halo 3 Mythic matchmaking trying to get that achievement on Orbital! That was 4+ hours a day trying hard to get the map and the kills.
If you could pick a video game character to be, who would you be and why?
Any Spartan from the Halo series, who doesn’t die! They are unlike any characters ever. Practically invincible and bio-engineered and enhanced. Instead of fighting for medals and recognition, they fight for pride and honor. Knowing the fate of Earth is in their hands makes it that much more epic!
If you could pick any location (from any game) to visit, where would it be and why?
Installation 01 from Halo. It’s one of the most beautiful places and it’s man made. It’s a vast open world where on its surface is stunning and not many signs of technology exist. It’s an ancient uninhabited place full of beautiful landscapes.
Finally, where do you see gaming in the next decade?
Most people would probably say 3D. However, I don’t particularly care for it. I hope to see gaming in the same place! Amazing storylines that immerse you in its world and visuals to comprehend. Gaming can improve into the 3D area if it likes but I grew up on 2D pixelated goodness so wherever it goes I will be right there, hand in hand strolling merrily with it.
