We want to put the spotlight on you – the gamer, the streamer, the clan, the MGO, the industry sort… Anyone that plays a part in the local gaming community. If that’s you, don’t be shy, send us your request to feature. We won’t bite. Unless you ask us to…
victim gamer is budding video content creator and streamer JayRPGaming. The name may hint at what he enjoys, but find out more in today’s Q&A with him.
Go ahead and introduce yourself. Don’t be shy.
Hi, I am Jayson the proud owner of JayRPGaming, a Youtube channel and hopefully one day a Twitch streaming channel. I play games from every genre, but focus on more story driven Japanese Role playing Games. Final Fantasy being the start of my love for the genre.
What’s your platform of choice? Why?
I mainly play PS4 and PC games, mainly due to the fact that I can’t afford two consoles, but have had a Xbox 360 before, so I will game on any platform as long as the games are good.
Can you remember the first time you ‘gamed’?
I remember being 7 and waiting on weekends for my older brother to go out so I could sneak in his room and play PS1 the original Tony Hawks and Final Fantasy 7. But I also remember being younger and playing telegame station games, Tetris, Super Mario Bros and other random 2D games.
How long have you been gaming?
Basically all my life, but I got my own official console at the age of 11, so basically 17 years.
When do you think you’ll stop gaming?
Are you a serious gamer? Or do you enjoy a laugh?
I take games a little too serious, if there is competition in it I want to be the best. If I am playing solo games by myself in my free time, I usually goof around and see how far I can break a game before I move onto the next one.
Singleplayer or multiplayer?
Both, I love the competitive nature multiplayer games give, but there is nothing like a good long story driven singleplayer game.
Is playing online important to you?
Yes, interacting with other gamers is extremely important to keep social skill and learn and understand more about any game you are playing or want to play in the future.
Favourite game currently?
Currently my favourite game of all time is Dark Souls(the original), I have never felt so challenged or felt such a sense of accomplishment as the day I beat that game for the first time, and it has stayed my favourite game ever since. But I have way too many amazing games to list from that are on par with Dark Souls.
Are you a member of a clan?
What are your plans for video content and streaming?
I am a Youtuber, who is attempting to get into streaming, but have been struggling to get the internet capabilities to do so.
What sort of setup do you have for streaming?
I have a dual-screen, stand alone mic, streaming setup with headphones, that have only been tested once, but after discovering I lack the capabilities to stream, have not made much progress on advancing that setup at all.
Which games would you stream?
I would stream mostly new releases, and JRPG games.
What’s the most embarrassing or worst game you’ve ever bought or received as a gift?
I have never bought a game I wasn’t going to play, and I have never received games as gifts before.
If you were a game designer, describe your ultimate game design.
I would make a game that feels absolutely impossible, with hundreds of tricks and gimmicks, so each subsequent playthrough feels different.
Do you have any hobbies outside of gaming? What?
You’re stranded on a desert island and a genie grants you five items. Name them:
A game: Dark Souls
A CD: Korn or Eminem
A movie or TV series: House MD
An organic life form: Cat
Something edible or drinkable: Water
The zombie apocalypse has happened [We are in fact closer than ever before… – Undead]. You’re facing down a ravenous zombie horde (which may or may not include members of ZG in bikinis). What weapon do you grab?
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?
If the zombies are sentient I would join the Zombies, cause I would live forever and game forever. If the Zombies are braindead, I would kill all the zombies.
Thanks for taking the time to answer our silly questions. What game are you off to play now?
