Your video game history!
#1
Since I know many people in the tribe have been influenced to play WoW through discovering other games simaler, I decided to post this so others can see what you've played and to have fun answering these questions!

1. What was the first video game you have ever played?
Super Mario Bros on the SNES, as far as I can remember

2. What was your first console?
SNES

3. Have you ever visited a video game arcade?
Yes, I played classic Frogger and Pac-man. Good times. Smile

4. What was your first handheld?
Nintendo DS, before they made all the remakes. Yes, I ran around with a clunky one.

5. What was the first game you've beaten/cleared completely?
Super Mario Bros.

6. Games based off of real sports: Yay or Nay?
Nay. I don't care for sport games at all.

7. Online games: Yay or Nay?
Yay!

8. Puzzle/Strategy games: Yay or Nay?
Yay! Especially if they're strategy games disguised as RPG's or what not.

9. Do you play any Massively Multiplayer Online RPG (MMORPG) games?
Heh, yeah.

10. Do you play any virtual pet games?
I used to years and years ago.

11. Do you play any RPGs?
All the time.

12. Do you play any Platformer games?
Yes.

13. What was the first game/console/handheld of yours that stopped working?
My original Nintendo DS because I spilled water all over it. Sad

14. Do you actually care if a game has a plot or do you just play games for the gameplay?
If it doesn't have a plot, I'm gone.

15. Name a few video game characters that are your favorites.
In no particular order: Cecil, Edgar, Celes, Locke, Cid Highwind, Tifa, Irvine, Garnet, Kuja, Yuna (X, not X-2 Yuna), Rikku, Seymour, Sora, Roxas, Riku, Link, Zelda, Yoshi, Walugi, Gordon Freeman, and Tirion Fordring. I know there has to be more, but my brain is dead.

16. Name a few series that are your favorites
Final Fantasy, World of Warcrack, Mario Kart, other various Mario Games, WarioWare, Fable, Baten Kaitos, Half-Life etc.

17. Has a video game ever made you cry?
Yes. More than once.

18. Has a video game character annoyed you so much that you wanted him/her removed from the game?
Yes.

19. Do you "pair" or "ship" characters up with one another?
Oh yeah, Cloud and Tifa were always in the same party. Aerith can go die in a lake. ...oh wait...

20. Do you write video game fanfiction?
Yup.

21. Do you draw video game fanart?
Yup.

22. Do you come up with theories on how a character came to be/what he or she would do in a situation/why he or she is moody/etc?
Of course. I like to figure those things out.

23. Are you a fanboy/fangirl of any character?
Used to be a huge Link girl, but it's died off. xD

24. Hardest Boss Battle?
Atmos of the Cosmos, Final Fantas VI. I spent MONTHS trying to get through that one.

25. Most Frustrating Boss Battle?
Once again, Atmos. A lot of the dragon bosses from FFVI got me riled up too.

26. Most Rewarding Boss Battle?
All of them.

27. Funnest Boss Battle?
Seymour Omnis, Final Fantasy X. I would do that fight again, and again, and again...

28. Most Boring Boss Battle?
Anything from FFIX

29. Boss Battle that dragged out for a long, long time?
The Aeon battle at the end of FFX. I had Yuna's grid maxed out and her Aeons were freakishly powerful. The Magus Sisters just kept healing one another and they'd one-shot my characters. Of course, you can't actually die in that fight, so it was just a long, vicious cycle. I ended up turning off the game after about 30 minutes of this.

30. Boss Battle with the coolest music?
Sephiroth (the first battle. Hey, One-Winged Angel is a neat song and all, but not as cool as the first Seph battle), Seymour Omnis, Kefka (final battle)

31. Most surprising Boss Battle?
I can't remember the name, but in the ruined world of FFVI, there was this creepy monster that flew around and engaged you in a random boss-battle on the airship. Needless to say, I never saw it coming. ._.

32. What's your all time favorite villain?
I don't have a particular favorite. I guess Seymour, but he just had so many different forms.

33. What's your all time least favorite villain?
Sephiroth. Mama's boy and completely overrated.

34. Do you ever feel sorry for the villains?
Sometimes.

35. Are there any villains that seem like they should be playing for the good guys, but aren't?
Also, sometimes. Depends on who and the situation.

36. Most malicious villain?
I'd have to toss this one to Kefka.

37. Most surprising villain?
Kales from Baten Kaitos.

38. What is your all-time favorite 2D Game? (Genesis/SNES generation)
Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past

39. What's your favorite 3D game? (PS1/N64 generation)
Final Fantasy VII. It may be overrated, but it's what got me into RPG's to begin with.

40. What's your favorite arcade game?
Frogger!

41. What's your favorite next-gen game? (Wii/PS3/Xbox360)
Loving Mario Kart Wii right now.

Not really a fan of sequels. Long series differ depending on what it is.

World of Warcrack, it's the only MMO I play

44. What's your favorite console?
My old PS2...or maybe the Wii.

Nope. I try to split my love evenly.

47. Have you ever defended a character/game/console you liked in an argument? Which one?
Yes, but I can't remember specific arguments. Probably something about how people think Aerith likes Cloud for Cloud and not the fact that he's stealing Zack's identity. Oh, and I will argue with all the VII fanboys that VII was *not* the first FF. Go suck it.

48. Name a game that you like but everyone else seems to hate..
Everyone I know seems to either enjoy a game I like or never heard of it.

49. Name a character that you like but everyone else seems to hate.
Kuja, villain of IX. Only a true man could pull off a look that feminine. xD

50. Name a game that you hate but everyone else seems to like.
Can't think of one atm.

51. Name a character that you hate but everyone else seems to love.
Sephiroth, lols.

52. Have you ever stopped before you finished a game because it was too frustrating to go on?
Final Fantasy VIII, not because it was frustrating but because it was sooooo f'in boring.

53. Will you stop at NOTHING to get 100% in a video game?
Nah, I'm usually to lazy to get the 100%

54. Have you ever injured yourself at a video game?
Dance Dance Revolution. Yes, I used to be big into it.

55. Has a horror/survival genre video game scared you to the point that you refused to finish the game? Did you get nightmares from said game?
Half-Life 2. Didn't get nightmares, just couldn't finish Ravenholm

56. Have you ever thrown a controller/disc/cartridge in a fit of frustration?
Yes. ._.

57. Do you need to blow/clean certain games to get them to play?
My FFX disc has scratches on it. ;_;

58. Have you ever played a game for so long that you missed sleep over it?
Totally wasn't WoW...totally wasn't...

59. Were you ever involved in the Pokemon craze?
No, but I do have one Pokemon game because my friend was addicted to it and said I should get it.

60. Last, but not least: Do you picture yourself playing video games 10, 20, or even 30 years from now?
Of course. I intend to see all those wonderful ideas, even as I get older. Smile

Atari 2600

Big yes.

12. Do you play any Platformer games?
That too.

The piezo speaker somehow actually broke inside my Pac-Man watch. It was still playable but no more awesome beeping. I was disppointed. That, or my Atarii 2600 that I later fixed (turned out to be relatively minor, though I did disassemble it). My aunt had already given me hers to replace it, so I had 2! Worst was the Coleco Vision that died probably from static from being slid across the carpet too much.

Not really.

21. Do you draw video game fanart?
Only for Pong

Si Ma Yi, Destiny of an Emperor -- Never got past it. He wasn't even a final boss.

26. Most Rewarding Boss Battle?
Lich King... but I haven't killed him yet Sad

29. Boss Battle that dragged out for a long, long time?

Probably something from Final Fantasy 7.

31. Most surprising Boss Battle?
I remember one of the Jedi Knight games. The final boss was supposedly this really tough guy you had to do in a specific way to kill him. I learned that after I ran up and 2 shot him with my lightsaber. I was shocked.

32. What's your all time favorite villain?
Donkey Kong was pretty classic.

33. What's your all time least favorite villain?
"Sephiroth. Mama's boy and completely overrated." -- This.

34. Do you ever feel sorry for the villains?
Sometimes.

35. Are there any villains that seem like they should be playing for the good guys, but aren't?
Gnomes

36. Most malicious villain?
The first guy you are sent to assassinate in Assassin's Creed 1. The guy he knifed to death was the single most brutal scene I recall seeing in a video game.

37. Most surprising villain?
Bowser... the princess is in *another* fricken castle?!

38. What is your all-time favorite 2D Game? (Genesis/SNES generation)
Screw those 16-bit platforms.
Burgertime, Coleco Vision

46. Have you ever got yourself involved in a "console war"?
I remember doing a compare contrast essay paper for Composition class in my first year of college. My topic, Super Nintendo vs. Sega Genesis. I was pro SNES since I always hated the Genesis and its godawful controller. Not as bad as Intellivision but still hated it.

47. Have you ever defended a character/game/console you liked in an argument? Which one?
See number 46... also WoW

48. Name a game that you like but everyone else seems to hate..
WoW, everyone loves to hate it, but they can't stop playing it.

49. Name a character that you like but everyone else seems to hate.
Gnomes

50. Name a game that you hate but everyone else seems to like.
I didn't like Deus Ex at all.

51. Name a character that you hate but everyone else seems to love.
not sure, possibly Sephiroth

52. Have you ever stopped before you finished a game because it was too frustrating to go on?
Usually if I stop, it's because I get too bored

53. Will you stop at NOTHING to get 100% in a video game?
No, I'm a 90%er. I will complete the story but won't worry about collecting all the secret items and whatnot.

54. Have you ever injured yourself at a video game?
Playing melee classes hurts my poor hands. And then there was that one time as a teen that I was a little frustrated with some Nintendo game and picked up my glass with a little too much... enthusiasm. There was plenty of blood.

55. Has a horror/survival genre video game scared you to the point that you refused to finish the game? Did you get nightmares from said game?
Nah.

56. Have you ever thrown a controller/disc/cartridge in a fit of frustration?
Yes, but I try to contain myself in my old age.

No, but I used to have to clean rented Nintendo game cartridges with alcohol to get them to work.

58. Have you ever played a game for so long that you missed sleep over it?
Plenty of times. WoW is not even the biggest offender.

I gladly admit I don't know anything about Pokemon, outside of the characters included in Super Smash Brothers.

60. Last, but not least: Do you picture yourself playing video games 10, 20, or even 30 years from now?
Gamer 4 life, yo!

I've had a few. : /

34. Do you ever feel sorry for the villains?
If I do, I probably don't consider them a villain. (even if they are)

Again, I don't consider them a villain then.

36. Most malicious villain?
...can't remember his name.

In one (and only one) of the Drakengard endings, when your dragon partner reveals that she'd been using you all along.
After she all but says she loves you in the first ending, I very nearly cried.
But I didn't.

38. What is your all-time favorite 2D Game? (Genesis/SNES generation)
Don't think I have one. Probably a Mario.

FFXIII (Only one I've really played and liked so far)

Depends.

43. What's your favorite Online Game?
. . . I only play one. It is thus by default.

44. What's your favorite console?
PS2. Maybe PS3 because it can play PS2 games, too...

45.What's your favorite handheld?
Would probably be the PSP if I could afford one.

46. Have you ever got yourself involved in a "console war"?
Sort of. I'm a sony man, but...

47. Have you ever defended a character/game/console you liked in an argument? Which one?
Pretty sure it was PS3 vs Xbox 360... can't remember the argument, though.

48. Name a game that you like but everyone else seems to hate..
Can't say I have any, but I'm frustrated that NO ONE seems to have ever heard of Grandia II.
Do you all hate it?
DO YOU!?
If so, you can all burn in very fiery places. It was my favorite. Still is.

49. Name a character that you like but everyone else seems to hate.
Hmm... can't really think of one, but it takes a lot to get me to really hate a character.

50. Name a game that you hate but everyone else seems to like.
Again, it takes a lot to get me to hate something, but when I do...
...I kinda' forget all about it. @[email protected]

51. Name a character that you hate but everyone else seems to love.
((Look at my above argument! THAR BE PATTERNS HERE!))

52. Have you ever stopped before you finished a game because it was too frustrating to go on?
Yup. Front Mission 4. It had mechs and awesome graphics, but a week on one level is too much.

53. Will you stop at NOTHING to get 100% in a video game?
. . . I've gotten 100% in something?
>.>
<.<
*coughs*

Nope.

Tend not to play those games.

56. Have you ever thrown a controller/disc/cartridge in a fit of frustration?
Only once. I usually just twist the controller in my hands until my rage abates.
...they still creak sometimes.

57. Do you need to blow/clean certain games to get them to play?
Haven't needed to in a while, but I tend to do it out of habit.

58. Have you ever played a game for so long that you missed sleep over it?
Yes.

59. Were you ever involved in the Pokemon craze?
Back when it started.
...I am ashamed. T^T

60. Last, but not least: Do you picture yourself playing video games 10, 20, or even 30 years from now?
I see myself, many years from now, lying on a bed after my legs stop working and my organs begin to fail, with oxygen tubes connecting to my nose... and a controller in my hands.
Wouldn't be surprised if I died that way.
If so, it's totally going in my obituary.

1. What was the first video game you have ever played?
Atari 2600 (Space Invaders and ET), Commodore 64 (Pit Stop) which used a cassette tape thing, and Choplifter

I played these at friends' houses. We never owned a computer or console of our own when I was growing up. I was pretty insufferable, though, asking my friends if I could play with their videogames all the time.

2. What was your first console?
I've never owned one.

3. Have you ever visited a video game arcade?
Yes, but only to watch over peoples' shoulders. I never actually played one myself. Couldn't justify spending the quarter.

4. What was your first handheld?
Some weird off-brand thing. I desperately wanted a Mario hand-held game and campaigned diligently for one for Christmas, but my folks got me a cheaper knock-off. It was okay, not great. It involved shooting witches on broomsticks. It was weird.

I played hand-held Mario games at other peoples' houses -- one involved moving boxes on conveyor belts at a factory. Another hand-held game involved moving a stretcher to bounce babies from a burning building to an ambulance. I loved these.

5. What was the first game you've beaten/cleared completely?
Erm, I don't think I played many games that could be "finished." Most just got harder until I ran out of lives.

Once I got my own computer in college I played a lot of Mac-based games: Spectre, Columns, Tetris, Texris, Lemmings, Master of Orion, Civ, Sim City.

I won games of Master of Orion and Civ, but that doesn't seem to be quite the answer the question is looking for.

6. Games based off of real sports: Yay or Nay?
Nay.

7. Online games: Yay or Nay?
Well, this one.

8. Puzzle/Strategy games: Yay or Nay?
Yay.

10. Do you play any virtual pet games?
No.

13. What was the first game/console/handheld of yours that stopped working?
My little hand-held witch game. I was only sort of sad. It wasn't a very good game.

14. Do you actually care if a game has a plot or do you just play games for the gameplay?
I think this must be referring to a kind of game I don't play. I'm skipping this and the related questions below.

16. Name a few series that are your favorites.
Civilization, Sim City.

I tried other Sim games like Sim Earth, Sim Life, Sim Ant... but none of these had the playability of Sim City. I tried the Sims for one day and then never played again -- I was weirded out by the circularity of playing someone living an ordinary life, paying bills and cooking and having a job. I do that already IRL.

17. Has a video game ever made you cry?
No.

20. Do you write video game fanfiction?
Yes, for Warcraft.

52. Have you ever stopped before you finished a game because it was too frustrating to go on?
Yes.

54. Have you ever injured yourself at a video game?
I strained my wrists playing Warcraft. Wrist braces helped.

58. Have you ever played a game for so long that you missed sleep over it?
Rarely. Long time ago now.

59. Were you ever involved in the Pokemon craze?
Um, no. That was way after my time. I feel old now.

60. Last, but not least: Do you picture yourself playing video games 10, 20, or even 30 years from now?
Of course!
