Favourite Video Game: The Last of Us
My all time favourite game has to be The Last of Us. The stellar soundtrack, incredible performances and game changing (pun totally intended) writing/story, makes The Last of Us unlike anything to come before it. As a massive Naughty Dog fan I just remember sitting there mouth agape at moments, tears in my eyes, stunned at what was happening on the screen in front of me.
Most Memorable Gaming Moment: Waiting for Super Smash Bros. Brawl
My favourite gaming memory doesn't have to do with playing a game at all. What memory I hold most dear revolves around the lead up to Super Smash Bros. Brawl on the Wii. After Melee I was itching for that next chapter in the Smash Bros. Heck I preordered it before it was even called Brawl. Anyways in the months leading up to the game's release, I just remember waking up every morning to check the "Smash Dojo" blog seeing what small tidbit of information was revealed that day. Could it be just another quirky new screenshot? A new itme? Or were they going to reveal that Sonic was joining the fight? You never knew, and that's what made it the best!
Why I Joined the Direct...
I joined The Direct because bottomline I love games. There are few things in this world that have brought me as much joy as gaming, and having the opportunity to spread that joy was something I could not pass up. With a background in media, joining The Direct is a chance to combine my real world experience with an industry and medium that I truly love.
