Gamer of the Week: GijoeJunior’s Dad

It’s GI Joe.  Not.  It’s OldManOnDaMove.  No.  FairyGodMotherFather.  Nope.  Whatever his name is, we can tell you he’s the father of our very first (and better – we kid, we kid) ‘Gamer of the Week’ GIJoeJunior.

Go ahead.  Introduce yourself.  Don’t be shy.

Okay so I have schizophrenia, some people know me by the name OldManOnDaMove others know me by GiJoeCraig or FairyGodFather but I like my new personality ANNIHIL8OR. I am a ballie a geriatric as some of the online players call me but never a camper.

What’s you platform of choice?  Why?

Xbox, simply because it’s the best PC is too expensive and PS3 sucks.

Can you remember the first time you ‘gamed’?

Hey I can’t remember when last I went to the toilet how do you expect me to remember when I started gaming, probably before the rundapest (okay so only if you are a ballie will you understand my last statement)

How long have you been gaming?

HHHMMMMM see above.

When do you think you’ll stop gaming?

HHHMMMMM how long is a ball of string.

Are you a serious gamer?  Or do you enjoy a laugh?

What South African male isn’t competitive, and yes I rage quit more than the average player, but I do enjoy the bull$**% banter that goes on in lobbies and can have a good chuckle at some of the kak that goes on in the community.

Singleplayer or multiplayer? 

Multiplayer, purely for the interaction that it offers.

Is playing online important to you? 

Yes it is very important to me, I am online most nights honestly not as much as I used to be but that’s because I have movies to watch and movies to make.  But there is the odd occasion when ill pull an all nighter but they are few and far between.

Favourite game currently?

MW3

Do you have any hobbies outside of gaming?  What?

Yeah for those that know me I have recently started messing around making montages, so I spend a few hours a day messing around making things etc, I also enjoy playing golf, body boarding and spending numerous hours around a hockey field, soft ball diamond, swimming pool or cricket pitch with my kids.

You’re stranded on a desert island and a genie grants you five items.  Name them:

Amy lee
Xbox
Triple XXX mints
Double shot cappuccino
Biltong

What’s the most embarrassing or worst game you’ve ever bought or received as a gift?

Okay again for those that know me I detest third person shooter games or any game that is not high paced, so and this is a funny one for me and a lesson learnt. Never ever leave your son or his friends playing on your Xbox with credit card details on the XBL online shop. Sitting at home on a Friday afternoon and my son and his mate are playing on my Xbox my son ducks off to the toilet, his friend decides he like this game Red dead redemption and decides to purchase it for me ha ha ha R600 rand mistake.

If you were a game designer, describe your ultimate game design.

Probably the same answer my son gave, take battlefield, medal of honour and the call of duty franchise and combine them. Having the ability to drive things blow up things and have the fast paced action of the call of duty series would be awesome.

The zombie apocalypse has happened.  You’re facing down a ravenous zombie horde (which may or may not include members of ZG in bikinis).  What weapon do you grab?

A life size image of Michael Jackson so we can all do the dance to thriller. Mmmmwwwwwaahhhh

In the aforementioned zombie apocalypse you humans are all toast.  Become a turncoat and assist the superior zombies or stay with the soon to be wiped out human resistance?

Always the resistance, why you might ask?  I always will choose the weakest side to help defend it’s in my nature to protect and to help. But with the awesomeness of my new personality ANNIHIL8OR you would all be dust in the matter of minutes.

Thanks for taking the time to answer our silly questions.  What game are you off to play now that you’re done?

Well its 9:58 am on a Monday and the Mrs won’t be happy if I am off to game right know so ill do a little bit of work and then start messing around on my new video which will be out later this week. One more thing guys please could i get some subscribers to my you tube channel please I am not feeling the love from the XBL community. www.youtube.com/user/gijoecraig?feature=guide
