About Matatone of us since 3:36 AM on 12.30.2011

1. How'd you get into gaming?

It all started when I was a wee lad, back in the day when GameBoys didn't have colors in them and when 3D was only used in niche B-movies that nobody watched. The internet was only available in 56k and connected to computers via a wire. Porn loaded excruciatingly slow and that is why I got into gaming in the first place. While waiting for pictures to load it was a true feast to play games like Duke Nukem, Wolfenstein, Unreal and the abomination that was Prince of Persia 3D (the one where the enemies and environments looked like they had escaped from Minecraft. This last scenario could only be possible if said enemies and environments got sucked through a time vortex and ended up in 1999, but hey, back in those days these kinda graphics were jaw dropping).

2. What are your favorites?

My favorites are games in which I can do stuff that isn't possible in the real world. Games like Heavy Rain for example. Who would've thought that baking a pizza, playing with a kid in a park and sliding down the muddy side of a freeway in the rain could be so much fun? *If you happen to have one of the thicker specimens of skulls, dear reader, I am being sarcastic here*

Real favorites: Saints Row games, GTA series except for IV (I fell asleep while I was playing this game which isn't a very good sign), LA noire, Fallout 3, Just Cause 2, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare (yes I still play this one because every single version after it is exactly the same except for minor differences in weapons, skins and storyline. I know this is slightly hypocritical, but if a new MW comes out which is truly innovative I'll be the first in line to buy it.), the Half-Life series, World of Warcraft (off and on), Heavenly Sword, Enslaved, some of the Assassins Creed games, Escape from Monkey Island, Little Big planet, the early unreal and quake games, I also play fifa from time to time (but only to get my ass handed to me by people who play it on a regular basis), Borderlands, the Baldur's gate games, Deus Ex (II and human revolution), Halo (LAN with friends, because I don't have an xbox and they do).

I think it is safe to say that this list is non exhaustive.

Apart from that I also like to watch movies and TV shows, but I'm not going to talk about those because this is a gaming oriented site.

Oh, yeah, almost forgot: I also play IOS games while I poop! The toilet is the perfect place to train your fingers.

3. What are you playing now?

Skyrim. Not intensively though, I don't have time for that due to social obligations (mainly going out drinking).

4. If you'd like to get fancy, you can also add photos and rows of stuff.

No thanks, I'm fairly certain nobody reads this shit anyway.
