Gamer Corner: Donovan

Welcome to this week's installment of Gamer Corner, where Fangirl Review interviews a gamer and gets his thoughts on the gaming world and learning what he is enjoying at the moment.

1. Tell me a little bit about yourself?
       - I'm Donovan, 23, aspiring comedian, youngest of 3 boys, from North Carolina

What rig do you currently game on?
      - PS3 and Xbox 360

What kind of gamer do you classify yourself to be? ie. PC, Console, Tabletop, LARP as well as Hardcore, RPG, etc.
      - console, I love fighting and racing games. Definitely somewhere between casual and hardcore

2. What is your first memory of gaming?
     - when I was 8yrs old, my mom and I would play Mortal Kombat on Super Nintendo. My mom was actually skilled with Katana and knew the fatalities. Later when Dreamcast came out, my two older brothers and I played Power Stone together.

3. What game are you currently playing right now? Do you enjoy that game, why? How’s the overall game play and graphics?
       - I'm currently into Tekken 6 and GTA V. Tekken is one of my favorite fighting series. There are new characters and special stages for you to knock your oppent through. Graphics are very pleasing. GTA V is my main destresser. I really enjoy the level of violence and the realness of everything.

5. Would you recommend it, why?
             - Absolutely! If you like punching people through walls and off of balconies, Tekken 6 is perfect.  Like I said, GTA V is a great de-stresser.

6. Are there any games coming out that you are looking forward to?
        - I'm a little behind on my game news so I can't say at the moment.

7. If you could design your own game what would it be like?
      - It would be like Shenmue

8. Thoughts on this new generation of consoles – Wii U, PS4, and Xbox One?
      - I would love to eventually own those.  I really would like a Wii U. The concept of cloud gaming really caught my attention.

9. What are your thoughts on the gaming industry?
        - Consoles have come a long way since I started gaming. I just missed Atari.  It's become like cellphones, taking something originally designed for a specific set of functions then adding all these other capabilities.

10. 10 years from now, where do you see the industry? Are you happy with that direction? If you had the power, what direction would you have the gaming industry go?
         - I think consoles and handheld will be a huge emphasis on gaming and will dominate entertainment.

11. Favorite Game (can include tabletop) of all time and why?  
       - Power Stone, I like that it has the old look but doesn't look so blocky compared to all the games that have come after it.

12. Additional Thoughts and Comments?
        - That is all for now
