Q1: People in SFW might not be very familiar with you as you are someone who doesn’t discourse much with other members, but they sure wanted to know more about you. How would you introduce yourself?
A: I'm Mega1gamer (real name Gabriel), and I'm an aspiring filmmaker and writer who happens to have a huge imagination and several different ideas in my head, going back as far as my middle school days. I joined SFW to prevent the ideas I had when I was younger from getting lost forever and to let my imagination run wild.
Q2: Which was your first Sonic game and how did it influence you?
A: ) My first Sonic game was the original Sonic Adventure (more specifically Sonic Adventure DX: Director's Cut on the GameCube). It heavily influenced me in regards to the multiple styles of gameplay and hubworld ideas, as I realized that another Sonic game like that in the future could be just as good.
Q3: Do you have any favourite articles here in SFW tthat you’ve written? For which did you put the most effort in writing?
A: That first question is an extremely difficult one to answer, since I have an almost equal love for all the articles I have created. But if I had to choose one, it would probably have to be Shadow the Hedgehog 2: Southern Stakes as it is the one I did the most research on and the one I thought about the longest to create. As for the article that I put the most effort into writing, it has to be Sonic Adventure 4: Californication since I live is the same area and am very familiar with its demographics, media, and all-around feel.
Q4: Do you owe any of your knowledge, skills or talents to school?
A: In school I was a very skilled writer and English and history student, consistently receiving A's in all my writing and English and history classes for attention to detail and framing. In college I was also ranked highly in my screenplay writing, at one point being compared to Quentin Tarantino (I know I'm not at his level; I was just compared to him by one of my associates). I owe a lot of my writing skills and idea framing today to my school and college days, because without those skills, I would be nowhere near as detailed as I am today.
Q5: What did you think of the PS5 announcement video as well as the upcoming PS5 games?
A: : I was really blown away by the PS5 reveal, and now I've even more conflicted as to whether I'll get either a PS5 or Xbox Series X. I missed out on the PS4 games as I got an Xbox One (primarily because most of my friends and family own Xbox's rather than PlayStations), but Sony in my opinion has always done significantly better than Microsoft when it comes to console exclusives (and you're taking this from a Halo fan). The games also got me very excited, specifically Spider-Man: Miles Morales as I am a big fan of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse and I really want to play the 2018 Spider-Man game. If it's true that the PS5 will have backwards compatibility with most of the PS4 exclusives, then I will definitely lean towards getting one.
Q6: Who is your favourite YouTuber?
A: Again, this is a really tough question to answer since there are so many great YouTubers out there. But if I had to choose one, then I'd probably have to go with Chuggaaconroy due to his relatability, likeability, and consistently high-quality videos.
Q7: Your favourite final level of any Sonic game and your most epic and climactic final boss in a Sonic game..
A: My favorite final level in a Sonic game has to be Metallic Madness in Sonic CD due to its great music and setting the tone for the final boss perfectly in my opinion, especially after going through the nightmare that is Wacky Workbench. As for the most epic and climactic final boss, it's hands down Metal Overlord in Sonic Heroes; the epic music combined with using every single playable character in the entire game in the first half sets the tone perfectly, and then once Super Sonic with Tails and Knuckles enter, Crush 40's "What I'm Made Of..." plus the intensity of the situation makes the entire boss fight not only one of the most epic Sonic final boss fights, but in my opinion one of the most epic final bosses in video games.
Q8: Where do you rely mostly for getting informed about the world events?
A: When it comes to world events, I definitely go to Twitter to get informed due to the vast amount of information and sources that are present on the site.
Q9: The best moment and the worst moment of your life.
A: : The best moment of my life is easily graduating from college in early summer 2018. The worst moment of my life is honestly a three-way tie: 1) my grandfather dying; 2) my mother's cancer relapsing on Mother's Day 2018 (she's doing much better now, though); 3) my dog dying in September 2018, a little over a week after I turned 23.
Q10: The best decision you’ve ever taken in your life.
A: The best decision of my life is easily signing up for my first film class in college in early 2015. I learned so much from that first class and it lead to me taking even more classes in college related to my filmmaking dreams and solidifying my plan of becoming a filmmaker.
