Interview

Question: What’s your favorite console?
Answer: I’m a PC gamer through and through and always have been! I’ve actually never owned a console. I do some light mobile gaming as well, but that’s only for casual stuff.

Question: What’s your favorite video game right now?
Answer: For the last 2 and a half years, my favorite game has undeniably been Fortnite. I know it gets a lot of hate, and it’s especially weird being in my mid-20’s. I’ve never been too much into competitive games but Fortnite is just fun, even when I’m losing. I’m also a fan of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey and Satisfactory.

Question: Do you think multiplayer games are taking over single player games?
Answer: This is something I feel strongly about. I didn’t really play multiplayer games much until college when I was introduced to League of Legends by my future wife. But I definitely feel like multiplayer games have quickly surpassing single player games. Single player games can often be like movies, and I think there’s a lot of value in playing them. I love a good story, and multiplayer games just don’t provide that.

Question: How long have you been gaming?
Answer: I actually wasn’t really a serious gamer until pretty recently. I remember growing up I had one hour of computer usage allowed per day. Sometimes I would use this for gaming, sometimes not. When I did game, I would play stuff like Need for Speed and Homeworld. Then in college I started playing League of Legends and Skyrim on my crappy laptop with integrated graphics. After college I purchased a gaming laptop and now I own a gaming PC, and it is only in these last few years that I game for several hours a day, every day.

Question: Do you have any pets?
Answer: I have a deaf orange tabby cat named Henry who my wife and I adopted a couple years ago. He’s a troublemaker sometimes but loves people and attention. He can usually be found in the background of my Twitch streams, sleeping in his bed on the desk behind me.

Question: What is your favorite Youtube channel to watch?
Answer: I think that varies a lot based on what topic I want to watch a video on… For tech, it’s Linus Tech Tips. For gaming, it’s JackSepticEye. For comedy, it’s Drew Gooden.

Question: What is your favorite twitch channel to watch?
Answer: There’s an Australian streamer called Crayator who I find absolutely hilarious. He plays a variety of games, but I found him for Fortnite content. He has the best reactions to things without being cringey, and his chat is a lot of fun.

Question: Best Multiplayer game out there?
Answer: While there are so many great competitive games out there that have great gameplay and great communities, I’m going to have to go with Minecraft. As frustrating as it can be at times, it is always fun to jump into a server with friends and go exploring or building. I can easily spend hours in a survival server with my best friends just hanging out.

Question: What is your job? What is your dream job?
Answer: I am a freelancer, meaning I do work based on contracts. And I work in marketing, and do a lot of content writing, video editing, and marketing strategy, among other things. I would say it’s pretty close to my dream job, because I love the work and I get to work at home all day!

Question: What music do you jam?
Answer: I’m into almost every kind of music but most of the time I can be found jamming metal or punk. Growing up, my dad introduced me to bands like The Clash and Green Day and that love of punk rock just got heavier and heavier. Now I prefer fairly heavy metal (the br00tal stuff), although I don’t usually listen while I’m gaming or streaming, unless it’s a racing game.

Question: Any final thoughts?
Answer: Follow me on Twitch at Masonzero Gaming! I play Fortnite, Minecraft, and more!
