My tastes have changed over the years I generally like
PC FPS games (Doom, Quake, unreal series, Half life)
Some PC RTS games (Warcraft series, some of the C&C games)
Action/platform/adventure games (Mario, God of war, Prince of persia, sonic)
Hack n slash (Diablo series)
Western RPG games (Baldur's gate, Neverwinter Nights series, Morrowind, Oblivion)
some JRPGs (Final Fantasy Series, Chrono trigger, looking to branch out this generation with some JRPGs, suggestions would be great so long as its on DS/PS2/PS3 platform and in PAL region).
90s Grunge music, also a fan of some rock instrumental music.
Standard arrangement of movies I love
- engaging action movies (ie one with a reasonable story)
- serious horror films
- Mystery films
- satire films.
If I read books they are generally technical manuals.
As long as its not boiled potatos I'll down it :) (potatos MUST be roasted or mashed!)
Game technologies, programming, gaming, guitar, rugby (watching), cricket.
Standard gaming/computer geek, some outside interests (sports etc).
Started gaming in the 80s, I didn't own a console until I got a Sega Master System (which was popular in my part of the world), got SNES next generation but PC gaming took hold until 2006 (although I got a PS2 in 2004, pretty much just for tekken and GT4) when I returned to console land to experience fantastic games that I've missed out on.
Currently a proud owner of the current console with games still in production
