We have met up with today’s gamer before. Back then he was a lot more fresh faced than he is now, but he is still playing first-person shooters, but just gone to the one (or the other one) not called Call of Duty…

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

My name is Ronan Irish, online I’m known as Irish (same as my surname :P). I play competitive Halo and I captain the Ventus Halo team.

What’s you platform of choice? Why?

Xbox One, it has Halo 😛

Can you remember the first time you ‘gamed’?

On a PS2 at my friends house before I owned any console. We would play medal of honour split screen with up to about 4 players.

How long have you been gaming?

For about 6/7 years.

When do you think you’ll stop gaming?

I think I’ll only stop when I no longer can play.

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

A bit of both, as I said I play competitive Halo but sometimes I like to kick back and enjoy a fun game or two having a laugh with friends.

Singleplayer or multiplayer?

Multiplayer all the way!

Is playing online important to you?

Very! It allows me to connect and play with friends.

Are you a member of a clan? Who are they and why?

I am, Ventus Gaming. They are a Multi Gaming Organisation with competitive teams on games like CSGO, CoD, Halo and many more. I’m apart of them because they create not only an awesome brand but are also a family.

Favourite game currently?

Halo 5: Guardians.

Do you have any hobbies outside of gaming? What?

I looove my Hockey. I play Hockey for my school Wynberg Boys High.

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

A game: Halo 5
A CD: Matthew Mole: The Home we Built
A movie or TV series: Netflix Exclusive Daredevil
An organic life form: Dog (preferably a Scottish Terrier)
Something edible or drinkable: Sushi

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

Receiving Sims 2 on PS2 when I was 15 xD

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

A mix between Assassins Creed, Halo and Destiny.

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?

Chainsaw all the way 😉

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?

Definitely join the zombies, I’d rather go earlier than later and be lonely. [Freaking suck up. – Undead Ed]

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

Halo 5 lol xD

If you, like Irish, are into Halo 5, you should look to join in the tournament action recently announced and hosted by HaloSA.
