There’s nothing I love more than community blogging awards! There is something great about being able to show your appreciation to other members of the blogging community and to introduce your readers to other bloggers. So before I go any further I want to give a huge thanks to Off The Field Gaming for nominating me for the Sunshine Blogger Award!
First things first “The Sunshine Blogger award is a peer recognition for bloggers that inspire positivity, joy, warmth and any other emotions that you feel when you think about the sun. I’m taking a different approach and I will nominate some bloggers that are new followers and write amazing posts!”
- Thank blogger(s) who nominated you in a blog post and link back to their blog.
- Answer the 11 questions the blogger asked you.
- Nominate 11 new blogs to receive the award and write them 11 new questions.
- List the rules and display the Sunshine Blogger Award logo in your post and/or on your blog.
Without further ado here are my responses to Off The Field Gaming‘s questions:
What is your first video game memory?
My first gaming memory has got to be sitting at my friend’s house crowded round their old PC creating a character and playing the Tutorial Island on the old school Runescape! Runescape was my first ever taste of fantasy games and returning to runescape every now and again is super fun!
If you’re a console player, which console generation so far has been your favorite?
Now I’m not a massive console player, I usually play on my gaming PC. Saying this my favourite console has got to be the Nintendo Switch (if only for Breath of The Wild!). I choose the Switch because it is the first console to catch my eye in a long time.
Who is your all-time favorite sidekick?
So many sidekicks so little time. If I had to pick just one I’d have to say Clementine from The Walking Dead. Clem is by far one of the best sidekicks when playing as Lee. The bond that you forge with her was one of the best in gaming at the time of the Walking Dead’s release. Clem is also one of the most useful sidekicks helping and learning throughout the game, you get to see Clem grow into an amazing survivor.
Batman vs Superman, who wins?
Superman. I’m no expert but my his very nature as a super tough near invincible alien he should be able to easy beat a human.
When did you first decide you wanted to write/blog?
I first decided to write a blog a number of years ago. However, I just put off doing it for various reasons. Of course school and exams quickly got in the way as well. It was almost a year ago that I decided to start this blog.
If you could live in any video game universe, which one would you choose?
Of I’m going to live in a gaming universe I’d have to go with Tamriel from the elder scrolls. Living in a world full of magic and wonder would be amazing. Although I’ve got to say I’m not too convinced that I would survive to long in a world of dragons and trolls!
If you could have any movie turned into a video game, which movie and why?
If I had to be honest I wouldn’t want my favourite films to be made into a video game if only because if the past is anything to base this on. Movies made into games don’t have the best reputations.
Where in the world is Carmen SanDiego?
Somewhere? I’m afraid I’ve never even heard of Carmen SanDiego until now!
How many hours did you spend on your longest marathon gaming session?
Ah the gaming marathon. Most gamers love the idea of 24 straight hours of gaming. Sadly I’m not a night person, when the clock strikes 9pm my body is crying out for sleep. So I’d have to say maybe 10 hours from morning to evening almost none stop, I’ve never done a true no sleep over night marathon!
When is the best time of day to play video games?
Best time to play video games is got to be the afternoon. There’s nothing quite like curling up with a good video game after a long day at work!
How long is your perfect gaming session?
For me a perfect video game session would be anywhere from 3-5 hours long. Any shorter and I wouldn’t be able to get immersed in it and would feel like I need to rush through the game.
With the questions out the way I haven’t exactly stuck to the rules of 11 questions and 11 nominations but here we go:
