When was the first time you actually played a video game? What's the name of the game and game system? What or who made you play?
..err since I was young >can't remember it< and Tekken 3 (Namco) -first game ^^ (played it using PS1)
Do you own a video game console? If yes, what system? Was it your very fist console? What video game platform do you prefer? (PC, Consoles or Handheld)
Yes , PC & PSP
What is your favorite video game? Why?
Tekken ...It's because it's somehow related to martial arts and it's a very challenging game for me :D to know the skills specially the combos that I can apply in my hobby (Taekwondo) :D
How about a particular video game character, who's your favorite? Why?
Lili (tekken)-- I love her figure and styles in fighting and kinda cool one :D
Cassandra Alexandra (Soul Calibur) --- even tough she acts like a boy or let's say "boyish" and having those characteristics of being fiery and outspoken, but she cares so much for her family particularly her sister :D
Do you play online games? What are your current and all-time favorites? Are you part of a clan or guild? If yes, can you give us some info about your guild?
I do prefer arcade games/video games :D
hahahah!I will just play and play and let him/her know that I really enjoy playing that game so that in that way , I can convince him/her to join me to play that game (teasing him/her in a simple way hahah XD) :)
Did playing video games make any difference in your life?
Yes ... It also turned out that some of my favorite characters in video games are converted into cosplay ^^
Do you have any personal video game related story that you can share with us?
>.< Xenosaga -Kos mos Not really her life story but her personality ..I love her personality and I think I have a little of her but not as an armored Gynoid but as KOS MOS. I will do anything I can for Shion & the world (the one that I love>family<) even though it will take my life just to save them."
Have you ever bought (or played) a pirated copy of a video game?
not yet ...but if ever I'm conscious about that game , I will try to go to the arcade shop(mall) with my friends and try it !
