@Shagger Who is your hero?

 

I don't really feel like I have one. There's plenty of people out there that I admire for one reason or another, but I would go so far as to call anyone my "hero".

Are you religious?

 

No, I do not. To me, religion is for people who want to relinquish responsibility for what they say, don't say and even what they think and feel within themselves to some, so called, "higher power".  I just don't need that. Reality asks the provocative questions and simultaneously provides the most evocative answers. Don't get wrong, I see Christianity, Islam, Judaism or any of the others as "evil" or anything, far from it in fact, it's people that twist thier teachings and lessons to suit thier own agenda's, but I just feel I need them to guide me.

Yeah, I can't stand people who relinquish for what they do on to something and/or something else.

How many consoles/pc do you own for gaming?

 

I've got a few retro consoles tucked away, but right now I'm only really active on XB1, PS4 and a gaming laptop. In total, maybe around 10-12.

What do you think is the ugliest console, cosmetically speaking?

 

For the purposes of this I'm going to discount add-on like th SEGA-32X and the Atari Jaguar CD, but coniseder the notable mentions becase one looks like a toilet and the other looks like something you would drop in it...

For a stand alone, mainstream console, I'd have to go for both versions of the Super Nintendo/Super Famicom

                                                          PAL SNES/Super Famicon Design                                                             NTSC SNES Design

 

Now, before somebody goes insane, I am NOT dissing the console itself. It's a beloved classic for many very good reasons, but if you actually stop and look at them, there is little to compliment.

 

The NTSC SNES was designed by somebody who lost his pencil case and only had a ruler left. It's very "white goods" in appearance apart from that weird ridge in the middle. Were they trying to make it look like a bicep or something? It really stands out and just doesn't look it it should be there.

 

The PAL SNES/Super Femidom is, if anything, even worse, it's so dull, I'm struggling to even come up with anything to say. A kid back in 1991 would have to know what it was to regard it with any excitement. Compare it to it's big rival a the time, and I think you'll understand what I mean;

Whilst the SNES looks like something your mum would wash your cloths in, that look likes a Tie Bamber. Enough said.

You're a Young Man, it's been a long time you started playing. And their is many more years for you to keep enjoying yourself around one of your favourite hobbies on Earth. 

Another question please; Do you earn money being around video game industry base on your vast experiences around gaming?

No. Quite frankly my job couldn't be further from the video games industry and I'm actually thankful for that. It keeps gaming very much where I want it in my life, as a hobby.
