I was nominated for this award by Extra Life and what good timing! I recently thought to myself that I really suck at doing and keeping up on tags and that I would change that this year. I’ve also decided not to be lazy and actually tag people to do them so watch out motha fuckas! I’m about to annoy your pants off. I’m married to a gamer but I do not consider myself a gamer, so this should prove difficult.
In which cases would you deem the manga superior to the anime on which it’s based?
Oooo, I cannot answer this one as I don’t recall ever sitting down and reading a single manga. I’m very picky about anime as well but I have watched and enjoyed; Inuyasha, Desert Punk and Fullmetal Alchemist.
What game do you feel has the best soundtrack?
Final Fantasy VII
If you could revive a dead video game series, which one would you choose?
Fuck if I know….every game I can think of that I enjoy they’ve either remastered or have continued making games.
What game/film/album/book did you have a particularly difficult time adding to your collection?
Quite a few of the true crime books I recently added to my TBR list seem to be no longer in production. Some don’t even have ebooks available. Now I can’t think of the name of them. I’m really good at tags.
Do you prefer to see a film at home or in the theater?
I haaaate it when people talk during a movie, so my preference is at home where it’s acceptable to tell someone to shut the fuck up if they’re talking.
In what cases do you find yourself siding with critics over fans about a work’s quality?
The first thing that comes to mind is 50 Shades of Gray. I actually have no idea what the critics said about the books or the films but I hate the fandom surrounding it.
In what cases did you find yourself siding with fans over critics about a work’s quality?
Eh, you’re killing me with these questions. I really never pay attention to critics and I only listen to other people I know and respect about their opinions.
Which game series have you been following for the longest amount of time?
World of Warcraft. I played for about 7 years and I still keep up about the going ons every once in awhile but it’s been about 3 years since I played the game at all.
In what ways do you feel that video game critics are ahead of their film-loving counterparts?
In the film, everything is diluted down to fit a small time slot, where as books and games delve much deeper into the worlds. SO I would be willing to argue that video game critics are much more knowledgeable (and therefore more trustworthy) than film critics.
How does hype factor into how you ultimately feel about a work?
Too much hype tends to leave me feeling disappointed. I find when I go into something with zero expectations, my experience is much more authentic and therefore, more enjoyable.
