1. What is the proudest moment in your PlayStation career?
I think getting Poster of the Week on the PlayStation.com forums is up there. Not really sure about this though. I remember when I beat Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 4 on sick, I was astonished that I was able to do that, of course I had bragging rights over my friends who hadn't been able to do that yet. It was pretty intense.
2. What was your first experience with PlayStation?
My first experience with PlayStation was when my brother got the PS One for Christmas. Of course he said it was his, and I couldn't play it, but I still did. If I recall, the first game I played was Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back. I was addicted to it, and played it for hours until I could beat it. I remember the joy of finally beating the level that seemed impossible. It was a great first impression for me and PlayStation, which has kept me playing it since.
3. What game are you looking forward to the most? Why?
I am primarily a PSP gamer, and honestly, there's only one game coming out that has me interested, Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Vegas. Why? I just really love shooters, and it looks like it's going to be a great game, and the graphics seem top notch for PSP, I am still waiting for the details though. I am also looking forward to purchasing Killzone: Liberation. I played the demo, many, many times, and it seems like one of the "must have" games for me. The graphics are also top notch, and I have heard that the story is very good. I am also excited that there are several Killzone Devs on the boards, and the fact that the are active, and always ready to answer questions. Real Life: Gamer Confessions Check back soon
