It’s always fun talking about video games… sharing why we love the games we love. But have you ever wanted to know more about the SA Gamer community? Or to find, and possibly interact with, local SA folk that share similar interests to you? Well, welcome to another edition of our weekly feature ‘Meet A SA Gamer Monday‘, designed to help you do just that. Every week we will introduce you to and provide a short profile for a fellow SA Gamer. We’re hoping you’ll enjoy ‘meeting’ more of the community as they share some of their fondest video game memories…
As this is still relatively new we thought we’d take a few seconds to remind you of the format:
First up, each SA Gamer will answer the QuickFire 5 – a list of 5 standard questions giving you a quick look at some of the most commonly asked video game questions. Then in Story Mode, each SA Gamer will provide a more detailed write-up about something they are passionate about. They have a big list of topics and questions to choose from so we’re sure we’ll get a nice spread of topics, genres and opinions. Finally, in some cases, we will also have a DLC segment… an extra little section where the profiled SA Gamers can add something a little extra for our readers.
And so without further ado… here is this week’s profiled SA Gamer…
Pizza lover, coffee, hiking, cycling, playing soccer, oh and let’s not forget playing games.

1. PC, Nintendo, Xbox or PlayStation? Single-player or multiplayer?
PC, Nintendo. Both Single and Multiplayer.
2. My favourite 3 games of all time:
- Resident Evil
- Silent Hill
- Super Mario Bros.
- and… Sonic the Hedgehog (had to add a fourth)
3. The game that must be destroyed at all costs:
I haven’t come across one yet, usually, if I don’t like it, I just don’t play it 🙂
4. I started playing video games:
5. My video game tastes in one sentence:
Nintendo for Life!
- What’s the first gaming memory you have?
My first gaming memory, was when I picked up one of those portable games devices they made. It was made by Casio and the game was called Hungry Dragon. I still have the portable device with me 🙂
- Which genres do you love and which do you hate? And why?
I would say there are 2 genres of games I love to play the most: RPGs and Horror games. I love the turned based theme and different ways to battle depending on the game. Often there is a deep story in an RPG and you can get really into it. As for horrors, I love the idea of constantly wondering about what’s around the next corner. What’s gonna jump out and get you. It keeps you on your toes. Plus, the environment they create and the ‘feel’ they manage to add just makes it even more awesome!
I don’t like Music genre games. I find them boring and they just don’t entertain me at all.
It was great to chat with you, ChilliX! Thanks so much for letting us get to know you better and being part of the great SA Gamer community. See you on the Mario Kart track soon!
