Do you remember your first video game?
I played pong...that's how old I am (69). Back in the mid 70's... they had Pong games in consoles...at different places. You'd put in a quarter and play. A few years ago, I found an original Pong home game in its original box at a garage sale and bought it. I progressed to Frogger and that's about it.

What is your favorite singe player game and favorite multiplayer game?
My favorite game in either genre is pretty much impossible to pick. The single player game I play most often is probably Heroes of Might & Magic 3 or Mount & Blade: Warband, both of which have an absurd amount of depth and replay ability, despite being quite a few years old now. For multiplayer, it’s equally impossible, I love the Quake series and always have, same with Unreal Tournament and Battlefield, but newer games like Overwatch are also fantastic and that doesn’t even account for MMOs like Diablo etc. It’s honestly impossible to choose for me, I love tons of multiplayer games and it largely depends on what everyone decides we want to play for the time given.
