Gamer Corner: Denver

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 Denver and I live in Florida. I currently play on my AMD gaming PC. I am a PC gamer and unless there is a significant change in the consoles, I will stick with PC for a very long time. I do think of myself as a hardcore gamer, with my favorite genre of games being FPS and RPG.

What is your first memory of gaming?
My first memory of gaming was when I was about 6 and my brother and I saved up enough money to buy a Gamecube. We mostly played Super Mario Cart Racing.

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

BattleField 4 is the game I am currently playing. The gameplay can be a little slow if you're coming from playing COD but if you spawn on one of your squad members, you can get right in the action. In my opinion, the graphics in Battlefield 4 are the second best ever, with Crysis 3 being the best. I enjoy this game a lot, but the game at its current state is very buggy and almost unplayable to some degree. I really hope that EA can get this problem taken care of soon. I would highly recommend this game to anyone, especially gamers who play COD.

Are there any games coming out that you are looking forward to?
There are a lot of games coming out this year but the game that I am most excited for would probably be Destiny and Tom Clancy's The Division. 

If you could design your own game what would it be like?
If I could make my own game, I would make a game similar to Skyrim: The Elder Scrolls but with a co-op with up to 16 players. I think games like that need to be experienced with friends.

Thoughts on this new generation of consoles – Wii U, PS4, and Xbox One?
I honestly think that the new generation of consoles has been a little disappointing. I think the first thing Microsoft needs to do is release a Kinect-less Xbox One so there is no longer such a price difference with the PS4. I think that if you are unsatisfied with the graphics, exclusives, and the power of the systems then just get a PC. Because when you think about it, almost every game that isn't on a certain console has usually been on PC. Let's take TItanfall. This game has been getting a lot of attention for its gameplay and its uniqueness, but no one who plays on a PS3 or PS4 can play it. Therefore some people who already spent $400 on their PS4 have to go out and buy a Xbox One. In total, that's $900 on two different consoles for games that were available for the PC.

What are your thoughts on the gaming industry?
I think the industry is good, but I really think that companies like EA and Activion need to stop milking money from gamers with shortcuts, DLC, and new map packs. I also think that the games need to be at least ten dollars cheaper.

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 predict that in the next ten years the gaming community will grow exponentially. I really hope that there are more original games like Bioshock Infinite and Skyrim, and not the "rinse and repeat" cycle that Call of Duty has been doing for a very long time.

Favorite Game (can include tabletop) of all time and why? 
My favorite games would have to be Battlefield 4 and Far Cry 3. I love Battlefield 4 for its vehicles and large maps and I appreciate Far Cry 3 for its great story and open world that you can roam.

Thank you to Denver for a fantastic interview. If you would like to be interviewed for Gamer Corner please contact me at
