Mario or Luigi? Mario probably, I dunno Luigi is pretty laid back though and a bit taller.

I have a question for you. Most fulfilling gaming experience? Or is this question more geared for the video game forums? /shameless plug.

Most fulfilling gaming experience for me was Dead Space 1 & 2. Always kept my heart pounding, always had my intelligence and quick thinking challenged, always a thrill to play because I expected anything to happen within those games.

No, I think if I were to make a game it would ruin the allure of playing them. I understand it'd be a really rewarding creative process, but I think getting involved with the technical side of things would just kill the magic for me.

I have actually dabbled in game making myself on an extremely noob lvl. I once made a side scroller platformer. Was pretty awful.

I would love to work in the video game industry though, I think it would be such a fun environment to be working in and basically everyone you work with would have AT LEAST one thing in common with you, their love of video games.

ACTUALLY I JUST WANTED TO MAKE ONE SO WE COULD ALL ENJOY GAMING TOGETHER! NO ADVERTISING INTENDED.

Just so happened that in the rules I needed to clarify that there is an option to go somewhere for Online Gaming. ;D

I know, really should have done this a while back.

And this is for Video Gaming in general, no shameless plugging involved! :D

Talk about anything gaming! :)

Actually yes.
I graduated from a Games Technology course, so I know how to make games in a sense. I am currently working on a couple of different ideas but nothing like AAA games; more indie.

I'm slightly interested in making games myself, but I think all I'll be qualified to do if I ever get out of university is the programming aspect whereas if I ever made a game, I think I'd have a lot more fun in the design process rather than bringing other peoples' ideas to life.

But I don't have any original ideas of my own anyway so I've never bothered trying to look into game dev. :(

Why don't you start an individual project?

It is all about brain storming. I have a couple of half individual, unique ideas but still, even having something is good.

Heck, if you want, you can make a fangame of mario or zelda, or w/e. You won't have to do any custom art or music if you do.

Or just have crappy graphics like my games. lol

Your most crowning gaming achievement, online or offline.

Beating Nocturne. It's SO EASY to die in it, even on Normal (because thankfully there's no Easy mode so you're not allowed to be a wimp) if you mess up even ONCE. A single missed or ineffective attack can forfeit the turn for your entire team, then you get the crap kicked out of you when your opponents' turn comes. And I'm not getting started on the boss fights, those may as well be mentally scarring at times.

Offline: Either completing KH2:FM or Tales of the Abyss. Both took about 200 hours and had a lot of teamwork between me and my roommate, so I still look back on it proudly. xD; Also, my LV1 playthrough of KH:BBSFM. Other KH games seem so easy in comparison now.

Online: I don't do a lot of online play but this one time, a bunch of us were playing L4D2 VS on the 360. I don't remember a lot of the details but the teams were horribly mismatched with a lot of experienced friends against this other friend and I. We lost the game, but owned the finale. It was Dead Centre and they got like 3 gas tanks and I think we either finished it or got really close, including one or two instances of me totally kiting Mork as the tank all around the map. XD; It was hilarious.

But I don't have any ideas at all. If I did, I'd do something with them. XD;

I used to have some original stories I'd come up with in high school when I was still aiming to become a comic book artist or something like that, but I can't really remember any of them. But I should go see if I have any of my old notes on them and see if any of it is even basic-RPG worthy. :B

Wow. Well this is difficult. Offline I would probably have to say beating a level of Halo 3's campaign on legendary with all the skulls on. (Like seriously wtf was I thinking?)
Oh maybe completing the Pokedex in Gen 3 as well, was pretty proud of myself there.

Online: Probably something to do with League of legends. Possibly how I'm on/really close to the pro lvl when playing Fizz which makes it unfair for the other team. >.>

@Lightning
If you want I can give you a bunch of ideas so you can get the ball rolling on your own ideas! If you really cant think of any, why not read a book and try and extrapolate it into a video game kind of idea/story line? That could work.

Ohh, I forgot about this. I remember how impressed with myself I was when I finished the gen 4 pokedex. But at least I had wifi to help. XD; Gen 3 is even more impressive.

This is true. I guess when it comes to something that would take as long as a game, though, I feel like I'd want the entire thing to be something new and original instead of a spinoff or derivative of someone else's work. But you're probably right. I spend enough time fangirling over other series that making something based off them probably makes way more sense to get started. :P

It was an effort, getting a Feebas, then a Milotic!!! (Way way WAY to many hours spent doing that). But I did feel rather happy with myself when I completed it.


It's not like you need to make it based off what someone else made its more of the process to get you inspiring and excited to get something going.
Plus if youre fangirling you may as well go uber fangirl and make a fangirl game! The process will definitely get you inspired and may get you thinking of your own ideas!

Thinking up ideas is by far the easiest part of making games for me... my brain just kinda does it on its own, whether I want to or not. lol

I've even gotten inspiration from the shape of some puddles left over after a shower once, and then built an entire game with plot/lore/etc all around it in the few seconds I was looking at it. I guess I just have a really overactive imagination though... once I see something that makes me think about some new game world, I imagine myself as being a character in that world, and start doing things, as if I were playing the game in my head. All of my game ideas (I have dozens at this point. lol) start like that. Always seems to start with thinking about the world, then putting myself in as the main character, and then building a plot for myself so I don't get bored in my little fantasy. lol

(I was originally trying to explain how I think of ideas, but I think I did a terrible job of it. lol)

It's funny that you should mention magic... because my college application essay was all about how I lost the magic of video games when I grew up, and how I found it again in making my own games.
