PERIOD 6 OVERACHIEVER INTERVIEW:

Its time for our fireside chat with 2 members of Still Game as well as AverageHero. Take it away! [quote]1) What brought this team together? / What drives you in this contest?
Average Hero - It’s a good chance for me to push for the harder achievements with the bigger TA score rather than the easy completion games, it makes you want to up your game and have a record breaking year on TA. :slight_smile:
BorrowedMango15 - Our team wants to get as many bonuses as possible as early as possible.
Expertable - We did minecraft which gave us a lot of TA which led to us going for 1st

2) Is there any game you’d remove from your gamertag if able? If so, which one(s) and why?
Average Hero - Hack, Slash & Backstab was my most recent “what the hell am i doing with my life?” moment and i would love that one to be removed from my gamertag. Other than that Dance Central on the 360 made me feel really uncomfortable the moment i realised i couldn’t bring out a dance dance revolution mat to beast mode it through the songs.
BorrowedMango15 - Warface - I only started the game as it was free and now the game has unobtainable achievements so I would remove that of my list.
Expertable - NBA 2k14… don’t know what I was thinking really, I don’t really like basketball games and can’t get the achievements on it anymore.

3) What do you think of games that release new iterations yearly?
Average Hero - Money hungry corporations who don’t care in what the customer want’s but more on what the customer needs to feed the addiction. Call Of Duty is a great example of a game franchise that you could skip every other one and it will still look/feel the same as the one from two years previous. So yeah it’s not for me. :smiley:
BorrowedMango15 - I think certain games that receive new iterations each year such as sports (FIFA, Madden, NHL) are good however other games like Call of Duty shouldn’t do it any more they’re are going down hill and maybe if they took time to create the game they’d make a better game.
Expertable - As long as the game is good I’m all for it.

4) What are your top 5 games of all time - any platform?
Average Hero - 1.Fallout New Vegas
2.Dark Souls 2 or 3
3.Guitar Hero Metallica
4.Left For Dead 1
5.Grand Theft Auto Vice City
BorrowedMango15 - FIFA series, Gears of War series, Metal Gear Solid series, The Last of Us and Saints Row 1, 2 and 3.
Expertable - 1) assassins creed 2
2) Jak and daxter
3) halo 3
4) gears of war
5) uncharted

5) When given the chance to change the appearance of a character in-game - what do you do?
Average Hero - I try to make them look the part, then i change my mind, then i just accept that this game is now a dressing up simulation and that i need to call work to tell them that i won’t be in for the next few day’s.
BorrowedMango15 - I’m not a very creative person so I think I would stay away from that side of the industry.
Expertable - Spend 30mins going through everything then another 30 trying to find the item that I wanted :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

6) Is there anything else you’d like to add?
Average Hero - Thanks planting42 for bringing the TA community together and that i’m very happy to be part of this. :metal:
BorrowedMango15 - Thanks again for setting the competition up.
[/quote]Thanks for that guys!
