Gamer Corner: DeAno

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 DeAno Jackson, and I’ve been a geek since the day before time began. I’m mainly a console gamer - I own a PS3 and a PS4 that get the majority of my playtime. I’m mostly into Action/Adventure games and RPGs.
What is your first memory of gaming?
Going over a friend of mines house to play Asteroids on his Atari 2600.

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

I’m almost never playing one game at a time, but rather I tend to rotate around several. Right now that’s Watch_Dogs, Don’t Starve, Dead Nation, and Mass Effect, but Watch Dogs is on the top of that list. It adds a twist to the usual GTA formula that’s a lot of fun to play with and does some intriguing things with multiplayer.

Would you recommend it, why?
Absolutely. It’s a fun game with a pretty good story that really draws you in.

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

Quite a few, actually! Batman: Arkham Knight, the new Dragon Age, Diablo 3, The Order: 1886, this year’s Assassin’s Creed game, and I’m sure after E3 there will be more added to the list.

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

I suck at design; it’d probably be a hot mess!

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

And this is where I’ll get myself into trouble with some of your readers. I’ll just come right out with it; I don’t consider the Wii U to be an 8th generation console. Each generation tends to have a theme, and the HD era was last generation. This generation all about social connectivity away from the console itself, something which Microsoft and Sony both figured out, but Nintendo is still lacking. The Wii U is the console that the original Wii should have been.

What are your thoughts on the gaming industry?

It really made me happy to see the current generation start off with so big of a bang. Despite the naysayers, this industry is as strong as ever!

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 ago I couldn't have predicted that the industry would be where it is right now. With the rate that technology advances, I don’t think ANYONE could see what’s coming next. If I had my way? One word: Holodeck. (Fangirl fully supports a Holodeck direction)
Favorite Game (can include tabletop) of all time and why?

You ask me this now, you get one answer. Ask me again in five minutes, you’ll get another. The game that holds a special place in my heart, though, is Resident Evil 2. For awhile in the mid 90s I kinda fell away from gaming because it seemed too “kiddy.” RE2 showed me that gaming had grown up, and I’ve been at it ever since!

Additional Thoughts and Comments?
Hail Hydra!

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

Sure. I’m EvoAnubis on pretty much everything that requires a username.
