Gamer Corner: Scott

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.

I am currently 22 years old and about to be a grad student at the University of Texas Health (for dental). I love RTS games; League of Legends being one of my favorites. I am also privileged to be the CEO of the great community “Have an Impact”! I tend to only play on my PC although I do have gaming consoles that I haven’t touched in about 2 years!

Windows 7 (Service Pack 1)
Intel® Core™ i5-2500K CPU @ 3.30GHz

AMD Radeon HD 6800 Series

What is your first memory of gaming?

I actually started gaming a bit later than your average gamer. My very first memory would have to be playing “StarCraft: Brood War” back in my 8th grade year.

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

I am currently playing League of Legends these days. I absolutely enjoy the game although the only thing it needs is a less toxic environment! I enjoy the competitiveness of the game, the ability to outplay your opponents, the skill curve of the game and all the different types of ways that you are able to play. The graphics are suitable to the gameplay, I don’t expect godlike graphics for such a high speed game.

Would you recommend it, why?

I would definitely recommend it for any gamer! It pretty much has a champion for every type of unique gamer out there with newer ones coming out every month.

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

Not really. Since I will be starting my grad school fairly soon, I do not intend to get involved into another game in the near future.

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

I am not even nearly clever enough to even think about that! However, if I can just choose the genre, it would have to be something similar to Diablo 2!

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

I personally think the best console in the world is the PC. Everything else fails in comparison.

What are your thoughts on the gaming industry?

I believe that the gaming industry has been looked down upon by society; however I also believe that it is one of the better industries in the world. If we can just fix the stereotypes of your typical gamer, the industry would rocket into one of the best industries!

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?

To be completely honest, I think the industry will be on a constant line for a very long time. Games are simply just games. I think everyone has to be happy with that. Games are fun, they are entertaining and they can be time consuming; but once we all grow up, we won’t be having the luxury of spending hours on games like we do now. Don’t get me wrong, some people won’t move on. There is money in the industry, but we have to realize that it is highly competitive with a very high risk of no rewards.

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

I would have to say Diablo 2. I’ve spent many hours playing that game and I would really have to say that it introduced me into the world of gaming.

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

On League of Legends my name would be Jellyfishes so you guys are free to add me in game! For more information you can simply go to our website:
