The Gamer Tag

I’ve always loved playing video games ever since I was little, and fondly remember spinning Sonic the Hedgehog through Green Hill Zone, as a child. I also loved “catching ’em all” on Pokémon Yellow, for my Gameboy Colour.

Needless to say my love of video games hasn’t changed much! Thankfully Aaron likes gaming as much as me, so he understands when I get lost in a game, and we often play co-op games together.

So to celebrate our mutual love of gaming, we decided to answer the gamer tag questions together (which I found on Leminz DeviantArt). Since we had so much fun answering the Pokémon tag together last time.

The Gamer Tag

1. What is your all-time favorite video game?

Kim: That’s a hard one! Probably Chaos Bleeds which is a Buffy the Vampire Slayer video game.

Aaron: Command and Concur for PlayStation.

2. What is your current favorite video game?

Kim: Red Dead Redemption 2! I’m obsessed.

Aaron: **Points at screen**

Kim: Same as me then! 😁

3. What is your favorite video game genre?

Aaron: Strategy.

Kim: Action/Adventure.

4. How long have you been playing video games?

Aaron: Since I was 5.

Kim: Since the early 90s. My first gaming system was a Commodore Amiga computer system.

5. What’s the first game you ever played?

Aaron: Fifa or Pro Evolution Soccer.

Kim: Likely James Pond 2 or Superfrog for the Amiga.

6. What game have you clocked the most hours into?

Aaron: Minecraft.

Kim: More than likely Pokémon Red / Yellow for the Gameboy. Or Minecraft!

7. What’s your longest gaming session?

Aaron: 2 days!

Kim: Probably 8 hours, with toilet and food breaks of course.

8. Who is your favorite game developer?

Aaron: Bethesda.

Kim: Sega or Game Freak.

9. Who is your favorite hero character from a game?

Aaron: Kratos from God of War, but he’s more of an anti-hero.

Kim: Lara Croft.

10. Who is your favorite villain?

Aaron: The boss from Fable 2, I can’t remember his name or Dr. Eggman / Robotic from Sonic.

Kim: Jason Voorhees.

11. Who is your most hated character of any game?

Aaron: Tales.

Kim: I own a Gameboy Colour, Nintendo DS, Nintendo Wii, PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3, Sega Dreamcast and Sega Megadrive.

13. What was your first game system?

Aaron: PlayStation.

Kim: Amiga followed by the Sega Megadrive.

14. What’s your favorite gaming system and why?

Aaron: PlayStation 4 because it’s got great graphics, a lot of RAM and the controllers are easy to use.

Kim: Same. For the same reasons to be honest. But if we’re talking retro gaming then it has to be the Sega Megadrive.

15. Do you prefer to play guy characters, or girl characters?

Aaron: I don’t have a preference.

Kim: Usually girl characters and I tend to style the avatars to look like me. 😅

16. Do you follow walkthroughs, or do you play through on your own?

Aaron: Play through on my own until I get stuck.

Kim: Same, I play through on my own. Unless I’ve been stuck for weeks then I’ll check for walkthroughs on YouTube.

17. Have you ever been to a gaming convention?

Aaron: No. But I would like too.

Kim: I’ve been to many comic cons which have a gaming section but never a convention deviated solely to gaming, no.

18. What game are you most excited for to come out in the future?

Aaron: Elder Scrolls.

Kim: Death Stranding.

19. What’s your best memory of a video game?

Aaron: Call of Duty 2. I was held up in a church by officers and had to kill them with a sniper rifle. One of the officers was running across from me and I managed to kill him just before ‘game over’, which was a great feeling.

Kim: Finishing Sonic the Hedgehog as a child as it was the first video game I completed in full.

20. What’s your worst memory of a video game?

Aaron: My sister over wrote my Pokémon Yellow save and I was just about to battle the Elite Four! I still haven’t completed the game.

Kim: When Pokémon Red glitched and my sister and I lost all our lvl100 Pokémon, except Zapdos who had been transferred to our Yellow game. We were gutted. 🙁 It still remains the only Pokémon game we’ve completed the Pokédex for.

21. Which video game character do you see yourself as, or if you had to be represented by a video game character, who would it be?

Aaron: Anthony Carmine from Gears of War 2.

Kim: Willow from Chaos Bleeds.


I hope you enjoyed reading our answers to the gamer tag. It was fun to do and we actually learnt a little more about each other doing this one.

I’d like to tag Dee, Emma, Megan and anyone else who likes video games. 🙂 Let me know if you do this one so I can read your answers.

    I didn’t know there was a gamer tag. That’s awesome! I used to love Pokemon when I was younger! Had so much stuff of it! Thank you for sharing ❤️

    • Kim says:

      My sister and I were obsessed with it! She even had a Pikachu backpack she’d carry around with her. Thanks for your comment. x

  2. Lisa says:

    The only name I recognise is Minecraft and that’s only because Flora and her pals love it so much! I don’t play games at all, although I have allowed Flora to install a few on the iPad (mainly How to Train Your Dragon related and a couple of Hungry Sharks). So most of this was like another language to me but great to hear you and Aaron found out a little more about each other, haha! Lisa x

    • Kim says:

      Thanks for your comment Lisa and sorry this went over your head a little! I haven’t heard of either of those iPad games lol.

  3. Soph says:

    I used to love playing video games but haven’t in so long! My boyfriend used to me a gamer too but we have little spare time now- he recently bought a PS1 original though so I have a feeling I’ll be introduced to some old school ones haha!

  4. Millie says:

    Love this post! I would probably have to agree on the whole most hours spent on Minecraft…!! The Nintendo DS is my all time fav with animal crossing being (obviously) the best game ever hahah! Thank you for sharing 🙂

  5. Chloe Chats says:

    Enjoyed reading this and seeing both of your answers! I love Lara Croft too, I’m a big fan of all the games, still yet to complete Shadow of the Tomb Raider but very much enjoying it! (Also scares me more often than it probably should). I have a Switch though so I’m loving playing a lot of the Mario games on it!

    Chloe xx

    • Kim says:

      I wish I had a Switch just to play Mario! 😍 It’s probably the only reason I bought a Wii at the time lol. I haven’t had chance to play Shadow of the Tomb Raider yet, I need to purchase a new PS4 before I can.

  6. Jenny says:

    Yayyy, I loved this tag! My favourite game at the moment is also Red Dead Redemption 2 – I started it for the second time around about a month ago and I’m taking it super slow. I’m currently following a tutorial to collect all 144 cigarette cards which is equally as tedious as it is satisfying haha! My favourite old school game is Spyro – I’ve completed all those 3 games 100% more times than I care to admit but sadly I really didn’t like the re-mastered version.

    • Kim says:

      Ah, I loved Spyro! I haven’t played the re-mastered version yet as I wasn’t sure it would live up to my expectations. Haha, I bet it’s taking ages to collect them all! I kind of want to go back and complete all the side challenges too.

  7. Holly Shannon says:

    I loved playing Day of the Tentacle!! I then moved on to Tibia and Runescape, but more recently played Counterstrike with my boyfriend and his friends!! 🙂 xx

    • Kim says:

      I loved Runescape! My boyfriend and his friends often play Black Ops together which l think is very similar to Counterstrike. Thanks for your comment. xx

  8. Emma says:

    I loved that you did this tag together. It’s interesting to see which answer are similar and which are completely different. Also, totally clocked way too much time on Pokemon as well. I remember there being a time I was on the game boy literally every day for 2 years. Thanks for the tag.

    • Kim says:

      You’re welcome. 🙂 We definitely learnt more about each other answering the tag. Haha, I was obsessed with Pokémon as a child. x

  9. Sophie Wentworth says:

    Interesting how different a lot of your answers were! I’m not a gamer at all so a lot of this went over my head. HOWEVER, hell yes for Lara Croft being your favourite!! I loved Buffy the show so I think I’d probably like your favourite game too x

    Sophie

    • Kim says:

      Lara Croft was the first female hero I came across in video games, she’s a badass! The Buffy game is so good!! Thanks for your comment. x

  10. Britt says:

    I love that you were big into the original Pokemon games hahaha – I remember back when those were all the rage! Are you getting into the whole Pokemon Go thing now? I love that it ties the original game into something that will get kids out and moving.

    • Kim says:

      Haha, thanks Britt. 🙂 I’m obsessed with Pokemon Go at the moment. It definitely gets me outside and moving more, but also helps my anxiety too. x
