What's your favorite video game?

It's always hard to name a favorite game, but my favorite, by far, is the 2013 Tomb Raider reboot. Something about that game's cinematic feel combined with the nostalgia I have for the Tomb Raider franchise really made it an amazing experience for me.


What's your most memorable gaming moment?

One of the most memorable moments in my gaming career has to be being one of the first teams in the world to solve and complete the Black Ops 4 Zombies, Ancient Evil easter egg. Solving the incredible puzzles involved in the Easter egg and being among the first to experience the ending cutscene made it a truly unforgettable experience
