Gamer Corner: Beto

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.

Tell me a little bit about yourself? What rig do you currently game on? What kind of gamer do you classify yourself to be? ie. PC, Console, Tabletop, LARP as well as Hardcore, RPG, etc.

My name is Adalberto but everybody calls me Beto for short, Haha! I'm 24, into computers, Windows, Mac, Linux you name it! I am currently taking classes for computer programming and computer science. I classify myself as a Console gamer, even though I like mobile games like Final Fantasy IV, Minecraft, Clash of Clans, Throne Rush, and my favorite one so far is Castle Clash,

What is your first memory of gaming?

Omg my very first memory of gaming. I was at my Aunt;s house, playing with my cousins and my Mom had just gotten back from shopping for Christmas, and what do you know! A NES!!! Omg i was jumping and screaming to play it. Hahaha! Of course I had to wait until after Christmas to play it.

What game are you currently playing right now? Do you enjoy that game, why? How’s the overall game play and graphics?

The game I am currently playing with right now is GTA San Andreas on my Galaxy s3. I had to flash my phone back to 4.3 because I was on 4.4 KitKat which wasn't able to play the game. I love GTA San Andreas! And now being able to be mobile and play it anywhere is awesome! The gameplay is great! The graphics are phenomenal! The joystick on bottom left is a little sensitive, but you get used to it.

Would you recommend it, why?

I would recommend this game for your Android or Iphone. It is that awesome and brought back so many memories when I used to play all of the GTAs.

Are there any games coming out that you are looking forward to?

Not that I know of. However I still need to play Call of Duty Ghosts.

If you could design your own game what would it be like?

Zombies, zombies everywhere! Kinda like the Walking Dead with a combination of Skyrim! Wait make it GTA, hahaha, make it a modern game, with open map, add mini missions etc, and there is no final chapter to the game. However if you do get bitten well that;s game over for you.

Thoughts on this new generation of consoles – Wii U, PS4, and Xbox One?

Not a big fan of what the Wii U did, I'm just not digging it. I love how the Xbox One and PS4 consoles look, but if I had to choose one I would go with…… wow that;s a tough one hahaha, I would pick the Xbox One.

What are your thoughts on the gaming industry?

I love where the gaming industry is, I just think they should make the games more life like, lets say you get shot in the leg, well you better be limping or crawling! Hahaha! That's what gets me most of the time. The Gaming industry is already working hard on the graphics of most games! I mean when I started playing Skyrim geeesh did I felt like I was in another world literally! Felt like the Matrix hahaha!

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?

10 years from now? I see the industry creating life like gaming, and I mean spot on gaming! I am happy with the way the gaming industry is heading. If I had the power, I would go with making the games as lifelike as possible! For instance, a SIMS game would be so lifelike it would be like if your actually controlling someone in real life! Or a shooting game for that matter! heck why not go all the way and add scents to these games for example your running down a green hill, you can smell the fresh grass, and the smell of the dirt wet from the rain….BOOOM explosion, you smell fire, smoke, wet burning grass, then you hear and see bullets flying….. yeah epic intro to a game right there hahaha!

Favorite Game (can include tabletop) of all time and why?

Super Mario for SNES, I just loved that game! It was simple and straight to the point! 

Additional Thoughts and Comments?


Would you like to share your gamer tag and the system so others may add you?

I would if I had one, however I'm not online at the moment, my system right now is the ps3. Until I get my Xbox One hahaha!
