Gamer Tag – A Glimpse Into the Life of a Lady Gamer

I am so excited to participate in this Gamer Tag that I saw from the lovely Michelle over at A Geek Girl’s Guide. I’m a sucker for these kind of tags because I feel like they shed some light on parts of my life that I might forget to share with you guys. And since gaming has been a pretty significant part of my life these days, it’s all the more appropriate that you get a glimpse into my gaming style.

1. What is your gamer tag?

Depends on where you’re looking?

Steam: PrimaGeek

PS: H_Marie-0412

Add me and let’s be buddies!

2. PC or Console?

Gosh, this is a hard question for me. After years of being a hardcore console enthusiast, I have recently made the switch to PC. I still prefer to game on consoles, to be honest, but I recognize that sometimes the PC has a better way of pushing certain graphics & specs so that a game can reach it’s full potential.

3. Console of choice?

I am partial to the Playstation 4. My family always had Playstations growing up and I married a Playstation lover. I will play on the Xbox for the exclusives, but if I have a choice it will always be the Playstation. #Playstation4Life!

4. Handheld of choice? (DS, PS Vita, etc.)

I am currently rocking the Nintendo 3DS Pikachu edition! I have also played on the PS Vita and it was pretty cool.

5. Keyboard or Gamepad?

It depends on the game. For some games, I think a controller is necessary for enjoyment. I would prefer to play with a controller when at all possible. For other games though, like XCOM, a keyboard and mouse makes the game way easier and more fun to play.

6. Singleplayer or Multiplayer?

 I’m a lone wolf. I love single player campaigns and overall not having to deal with other d-bags players. The only time I like playing multiplayer is when it’s a co-op with my hubby.

7. What was the first game you have ever played?

Oh gosh, probably Super Mario way back in the day. The very first FPS I ever played was Resistance with my husband. I…I was terrible. Thankfully, I’ve come  along way since then.

8. Hardest game you have ever played?

 Ori and the Blind Forest! So much love, but so much rage quitting. I would say Rocket League is a close second. Cars can’t drive on the ceiling, I mean… physics.

9. What was your first gaming system?

The first gaming system that I got to my self was an OG Playstation. I used to play Rayman and Crash Bandicoot like a boss on that thing.

10. What is your favorite game of all time?

If you know me at all then you already know the answer to this question. Without a doubt, forever and always, The Last of Us. This game has the most immersive environment that I have ever experienced. The characters are relatable and the way that the story plays out makes you really care about what is happening. I don’t think that any game will be able to top The Last of Us and I hope that it never does.

11. What game is currently your favorite?

I don’t know if it’s a current favorite, but I’m currently playing Dragon Age: Inquisition and of course Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer on the 3DS. I’m loving both!

12. Favorite video game genre?

I would have to say Indie games. I feel like they bring a level of authenticity that can get lost in the triple A titles. Beyond just simply “indie” I love story-based games. Anything that has a story that sucks you in and makes it difficult to put the controller down. I’m also partial to TellTale games. So…there’s that…

13. Favorite video game character?

I really love the character of Ellie from The Last of Us. She is a strong character with such vulnerability still. There is that reliance on Joel, but a streak of independence that makes her spunky and resilient. I also love the character of Clementine from The Walking Dead series. You see her grow up and turn into a a self-sufficient, albeit, skeptical young woman. I love her evolution and can’t wait to see where they take her in the new series.

Can I also say Yoshi? I love that green dino.

14. Which video game character do you hate most?

I truly hated the character Emily from Until Dawn. She was so whiny and self-centered. *Blech*

15. What new game you are most excited for?

I am super pumped, for obvious reasons, for The Last of Us 2! When that comes out, I am going to go HAM and preorder like a mother.

16. Favorite video game company/developer?

I’m a big fan of TellTale, as I stated previously. I also like NaughtyDog & Supermassive Games.

17. What gaming systems do you currently have?

I have:

  • Playstation 4
  • Xbox One
  • Alienware Alpha
  • Nintendo 3DS
  • Gaming PC

We’re a little fanatic.

18. How long have you been gaming?

I’ve been gaming total for around 20 years, but more seriously for the last 5 years.

19. How long was your longest gaming session?

You know, that’s a great question! I honestly have no idea how long my longest was. Probably somewhere around the 10 hour range and most definitely with my husband!

20. What game have you clocked the most time on?

I have played through The Last of Us a total of 3 times, so I have lots of hours logged in. I also have spent quite a long time meandering around the destruction in Fallout 4. I just recently downloaded The Sims 3, so it’s only a matter of time before I lose weeks into that imaginary world.


Well I hope that this gives you a little bit more information about me as a gamer. If you have any burning questions then I am more than happy to answer them! Just ask in the comments.
