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…
Grant Webster aka “Gantz”
Name: Grant Webster
Forum tag: Gantz
About: An avid gamer, will play anything and everything. Always willing to help the gaming communities!
1. PC, Nintendo, Xbox or PlayStation? Single-player or multiplayer?
I play on all platforms, I prefer single-player games but will put on a multiplayer game to pass some time.
2. My favourite 3 games of all time:
- Any FromSoftware title
- Fallout series except 4 and 76
- Entire God of War series including the Vita titles
3. The game that must be destroyed at all costs:
E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, as it nearly killed the whole industry
4. I started playing video games:
1990 on the golden china, getting an original NES in SA was next to impossible
5. My video game tastes in one sentence:
I’ll give any game a chance.
- Tell us about your favourite game. Why is it so special to you?
Video games have always been a part of my life. They have stuck around through everything. Video games are an escape from some of the mundane parts of life. What makes video games so special is the simple fact that they bring everyone together; Whether it’s good, bad or controversial, there is always a discussion to be had. The number of friends I’ve made because of video games shows the power the medium has.
It was great to chat with you, Gantz! Thanks so much for letting us get to know you better and being part of the great SA Gamer community. And… don’t think we didn’t notice you cheated in the 3 Favourite Game Quickfire question 😉 How many games was that… 26?
