The first user to reach 1000 posts was our very own Lord of the Rats and it's quite possible he still holds the lead for most posts in the forums. Just who is this Rat with all the spare time?
Ok, so that's not an actual picture of Rat Boy but I had to take a stab at it.
Who the devil are you?
I am Rat Boy, Lord of the Rats! Fear my rat powers! I also have been called by Mike, Stinky, That Guy That Keeps Staring at You, and Dammit, Son.
What are you supposed to be doing during the day when youÃ‚'re reading GWJ?
Right now, I should be studying for my GMATs so I can get into a MBA program. Then again, I never studied for tests during my undergraduate days, so why mess with something that's worked for me?
When youÃ‚'re not working or gaming, what do you do with your time?
Not much, really. Reading, riting, and the ocassional rithmetic. Oh, and booze. Plenty of booze, if you couldn't tell.
How about family? Do you have any kids?
Me? Single, presently. Zero children that have come forward...so far.
What was your favorite game over the last year or so? Why?
Last year? I'd say it'd have to be "Knights of the Old Republic." I literally lost a couple of weeks of my life playing it over and over again during the holidays. The plot makes the prequel movies look like Ewok films. Plus there's so much depth that I still need to go back to see everything.
Which game are you looking forward to most?
At the moment, it is a toss-up between "Battlefield: Vietnam" and "Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow." Unfortunately for my wallet, they're both coming out at the same time.
What is your fondest gaming memory?
Recently, being called a saber throwing whore during the first and only "Jedi Academy" GWJ session. You guys gotta watch out for the boomerang effect!
Finally, why do you play games at all? Why havenÃ‚'t you outgrown them?
I have a chemical imbalance that makes me prone to addiction. Or brain damage. One of those two.
Thanks for taking the time to answer our hard-hitting questions!
