We're very pleased to be launching a new community feature here at GWJ. The Employee Profile will showcase various members of our forums and give everyone an idea of who they're talking to all day when they're supposed to be working. For the first few rounds of questions we'll be doing posters with over 1000 posts and then we'll expand from there. The questions are sent through Private Messages in the forums so keep your eyes peeled! If you do an interview we encourage you to post a link to it in your signature file so new visitors can get a feel for who you people are. Our very first profile is of none other than Drunkagain, the Office Lush.
1) Who the devil are you?
An unmotivated 33 year old who likes nothing better than hanging out with his friends playing video games and drinking beer.
2) What are you supposed to be doing during the day when youÃ‚'re reading GWJ?
I work in surgery at our local hospital doing sterile processing. IT's a shlep job, but the pay is decent and the work is easy.
3) When youÃ‚'re not working or gaming, what do you do with your time?
Spend way to much time at GWJ. I've also played guitar for the last 20 years and spend a good amount of time with that lately. Read. I'd rather read a good book than just about anything else. And since I live in the great Pacific Northwest, I spend lot's of time enjoying the outdoors.
4) How about family? Do you have any kids?
5) What was your favorite game over the last year or so? Why?
Advance Wars 2. I'm an old school gamer and turn base strategy is my absolute favorite genre. Once I got into it, I just couldn't stop playing.
6) Which game are you looking forward to most?
Doom 3. Call me an id Software fanboy, but I've completely enjoyed every game these guys have ever made. And I love horror. Looks like a winning combination to me.
7) What is your fondest gaming memory?
Spending an entire weekend with my friend playing The Secret of Mana. Even when he had his truck towed we didn't quit playing. My first co-op experience in a game and I've been sold on it ever since.
8: Finally, why do you play games at all? Why havenÃ‚'t you outgrown them?
Jeez, I grew up on video games. I cut my teeth on an Atari 2600, a NES, and a C64. I can't remember a time when I haven't had a gaming system in my home of type or another. I may burn out on gaming from time to time, but it's in my soul, and I always come crawling back.
Thanks for taking the time to answer our hard-hitting questions, any last words?
Thanks to the staff and community at GWJ for the best site around.
