I was tagged by
the original rules follow here. 1. Each person has to share 5 things about themselves2. Answer the 10 questions asked to you and invent 10 questions the people you tag will have to answer3. Choose 10 people and put their icons on your journal4. Not something like "you are tagged if you read this"5. You have to tag legitimately 10 people6. No tag-backs
but there's no rule about changing the rules, and since there's plenty of somewhat meta rules, I think it's safe to say that it's not implied that you can't change the rules, so I'm changing the rules slightly.
The new rules follow here:1. Each person has to share 5 things about themselves2. Answer the 10 questions asked to you and invent 10 questions the people you tag will have to answer3.

7. No changing the rules
my five things about myself are:
1. I don't remember the first game I ever played, because of how young I was at the time, but it was probably on the Amiga.
2. I grew up with a Snes and Megadrive emulator on a computer, and the Snes emulator had a load of japanese roms, as a result I have a lot of nostalgia for games you've never even heard of, such as Daibakushou Jinsei Gekijou - Ooedo Nikki, Dokapon 3.2.1. Arashi wo Yobu Yujyo, and MagiMonster Maker Kids
3. My parent's didn't get the internet until about 2001, or more likely later. I don't remember the exact year, but it wasn't that long ago.
4. I always use proper punctuation when writing text messages.
5. I think I have an allergy towards chocolate.
Vinzurza's questions are 1.do you have any strange habits
I have loads of strange habits, but I suppose I've got to give at least one. Whenever I'm in a bank or the post office, I like to think of the order I'd shoot everyone if I burst in with a shotgun (and for the record, I would never commit such a senseless act of violence, I actually detest violence, but there's always fun in imaginary violence).
2. which do you prefer sour or spicy
Well it depends really. I wouldn't want my curries to be sour, and I wouldn't want my sour Skittles to be spicy. But if I had to choose, I'd choose sour.
3. what's your biggest phobia
Probably spiders. I just don't like those damn legs!
4. name the last science fiction program you watched
Doctor Who, it was about a few minutes ago as well. Although since I'm British, watching Doctor Who is practically obligatory.
5. what makes you hesitate when asking a question to someone in person
I hesitate because of what I think their response will be like. As a result, I try and word my question in such a way so that I get the response I want (in my head of course, and it's usually right).
6. what is your biggest pet peeve
Where do I start!
But since you're asking, probably when someone get's a technicality wrong... or when people write "your" instead of "you're", I mean, the two words don't even sounds the same, and the meanings are completely different. One is pronounced "yor" and the other is pronounced "u-er". I also have a peeve with modern FPS games, and when people complain about splitscreen being in a game, when it being in doesn't affect them.
I could go on forever about pet peeves.
7. name your favorite video game
That's like asking me to choose my favorite child... when I get children that is.
The original Deus Ex is a brilliant game. Dwarf Fortress is as well. I like Seven kingdoms: Ancient Adversaries. I also like Timesplitters Future Perfect.
8. if you had to choose would you rather work for modern disney or nickelodeon
Probably Disney, since chances are that in a decade or two, Nickelodeon will probably get bought out by Disney. Every company does in the end.
9. which genre of animation do you prefer 2d or 3d
It depends on the story, but I personally prefer 2D if it's traditionally animated. If it's flash, then probably 3D.
10. more makes a better horror film blood and gore, or suspense and the unknown
Suspense and the unknown. Oh, and none of those stupid idiots getting on the floor screaming for a few minutes while the monster very slowly makes it's way towards them. There's a reason why Evil Dead was a good film, and it's because he actually DID SOMETHING. Oh, and I don't like cheap scares from startling the audience. A sense of impending doom is the best, after all, it's why I personally find slow zombies better than fast zombies. One just gives cheap scares, the other only scares you with the hopelessness of it all.
my ten questions are
1. Why did you join deviantArt?
2. What do you think to these chain tag thingies?
3. Are you going to tag other people?
4. What is your tenth question going to be?
5. Do you agree that changing the rules is ok, if there's no rule about changing the rules?
6. What's your favorite colour?
7. What's your favorite day of the week?
8. What do you think to the spelling differences between English and American English (such as color and colour)?
9. Which do you prefer AAA Games, Indie Games, or Retro Games?
10. Do you think I was lazy in coming up with the majority of these questions?
