If you were able to erase all memories from one game to be able to fully experience it again, which game would it be and why?
My obvious response to this question would be a Legend of Zelda game for how epic some of their stories and game play are, but… I think Pokemon Yellow would be my answer for this. It was my first game on my first handheld, the GameBoy Color. While I had grown up watching my uncle, and sometimes my father, play video games, Pokemon Yellow was the first game that I experienced on my own where I could figure out how to move forward while making friends with my Pokemon team. It opened up what video games could be, and despite how strong the Pokemon franchise still is, the basic formula for the games are all the same. Being able to relive all that magic would be amazing.
I would love to fully experience Breath of the Wild again. There’s still so much we have to do in the game, especially with the DLC, but I would love to turn on the game for the first time again. I was amazed at the music and the graphics, let alone the main storyline as well as the gameplay. Even going into Hyrule Castle for the first time… It was so epic!
If you were allowed to help in the production of a game, which role would you take on and why? The role of producer, voice actor, writer, designer…?
Writer and, perhaps, designer and programmer. I love writing and I want to get better with my art, so designing a game would be a good way to do that, haha! I’m decent at programming as well, and I wouldn’t mind taking on the task of weeding out bugs in a code to ensure a smooth gaming experience.
I’d love to be a voice actor and a writer. Writing is my career so I couldn’t imagine not contributing to the script. Voice acting is always something that’s been in the back of my mind. I’d love to give it a go and I am pretty decent at doing multiple voices.
What is one of the earliest video game memories?
Probably bothering my uncle to play video games so I could watch when I was barely in kindergarten. It was always either Super Mario RPG or Ocarina of Time that I bothered him to play, loving the characters and the stories of both. He was one of the main influences that I picked up a controller on my own (that, and my mother, who decided that I should play the games on my own rather than wake up my uncle, who was usually napping to prepare for his third shift job!).
This is a tough one. I remember playing the SNES at my grandparents’ house – Street Fighter, Super Mario Kart, and watching Kris play Super Mario RPG. However, the first game I played and completed myself was Paper Mario for the Nintendo 64. Those were certainly good times.
