  1. I'm playing Final Fantasy V off of the PSN. I never played much of IV-VI, so I decided to give them a shot in a random order. I knew this one would be good when the bad guy was named X-Death and looked like a rejected Power Rangers villain. Pretty neat class system for an old game though.
  2. I'm running low on funds and the pitch video was really annoying, so I only tossed $25 towards it. I did that because the original looks pretty outdated and I always wanted to play the LSL games, but was too young at the time.
  3. Aside from this Kickstarter, the most I ever spent on a game was $100 for the Uncharted 3 Collector's Edition, but since that was a huge waste of money (not the game and the steelbook, but the rest of the package) I'm just going to say the most expensive was around $90 for Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne with a guide on eBay since it was out of print by the time I'd heard of it.
  4. I just finished Assassin's Creed 2 and I'm planning on starting Journey, a random PS game off of PSN or Planescape: Torment (just discovered GOG myself and missed it when it was released.)
  5. I didn't have a PC fit for anything other than word documents until late into high school, so I missed out on most adventure games myself. I'd have to say experience them for yourself. Some of them are hit or miss, but I highly recommend the first three Monkey Island games. Hector: Badge of Carnage is decent if you don't mind mature content. I couldn't stand the silence of the first two Monkey Island games by the time I got to them (I started with the third.... for shame....) so if you need better visuals and voiceovers I highly recommend the special edition updates for Monkey Island 1 and 2. They're amazing. The Telltale Sam and Max games aren't too shabby, though I wasn't a fan of some of the voice acting.
  6. To me, the greatest villains are ones that you can sympathize with. To be able to feel sorry for them, yet hate them at the same time. A great example to me was the villain from the film Red Dragon. I wasn't a huge fan of the movie, but that was a great bad guy.
  7. I'm too busy working on scripts and busting into the film industry to worry about such things. Of course, if I ever made it big (aka, hit the lottery and funded my own movie and then, through some fluke of nature, became big) I'd love to write a game at some point, as long as motion gaming/3D don't completely dominate the industry by then. If I ever met somebody who was into making games, I'd certainly consider co-writing with them in my spare time, as long as they had a solid idea. Film just wins out as my true love (by a slim margin.)
  8. I'm running Vista on my mom's PC. My laptop is Windows 7, but I don't get it out much because of the battery life.
  9. I haven't played Dear Esther yet, but I really enjoyed The Stanley Parable and played through it several times. It was a really interesting experience.
  10. Allow me to clarify. I work in a Kroger fuel center kiosk, locked away from those glorious (allegedly volatile) fumes and candy/lotto tickets in the windows obfuscate most of the goings-on. All I've written in the last month are ideas for a pun-intensive flick about two guys working at a gas station. Don't worry though. I've ruled out "Fool Service" as a possible title.
  11. My name's Jeremy and I'm a couple weeks shy of 26. I have a BFA in Cinema & Photography (emphasis in screenwriting) and I work a dead-end job. Gotta pay off those school loans before heading out West/East/whichever direction will take me. I'm your typical anime-loving, film-adoring, game-playing, neckbeard-ed elitist (one of the nicer ones though!) Paying off those loans would be easier if I hadn't stumbled upon Kickstarter. I backed this project for $100 and The Banner Saga for $50. Credit cards are great!
  12. I tend to write most of my script ideas out in a notebook; just since they're light and easy to hide at work. Writing stuff down is also more memorable to me than typing it. I still remember the day I wrote down the idea/title for my first (and only) screenplay. I was sitting down with a friend for lunch in Southern Illinois... at a Chicago-style hot-dog joint... which was run by a lovely Asian couple who barely spoke any English. Ok. I guess ambiance is more important to me than the notebook... which explains why I haven't written much since I started working at a gas station.
