I judge the quality of a video game based on whether pressing any button like it says on the title screen actually advances to the next screen
My turn I guess :)
1. I’m a Horror-movie/story fanatic. Give me everything to do with the supernatural. Conjuring remains a top favorite, but not a fan of Paranormal Activity or Blair Witch type movies. Give me vampires everyday for the rest of my life. 210%. Not the modern ones, Victorian ones! No, not even Victorian ones in modern times… just no! And they don’t f-ng sparkle! Sheesh!
2. Gamer-4-Life. I’ve done consoles, PCs and handhelds. My interest ranges from Super Mario to Killer Instinct; Stardew Valley to Call of Duty; Sims 2 to The Witcher 3; Hidden Object games to Racing games.
If I had to say it in as few words as possible: “If the game is good; If the story’s good; If I can enjoy myself…I play the game. Simple as that” (Crap, still a lot of words)
3. I can read a 400+ pages book in one day if the story captivates me. Yup, huge book nerd here. My favorite books keep changing through the years as I keep on reading, but they always contain a good balance of different themes. So never a full-on Mystery/Romance/Comedy, always a mix.
I want to be able to cry and smile in the same book. Be bored and then piqued again. Also passionate scenes is a huge A+ pre in my eyes. Why?
See, I have this immortal kid inside of me that will ALWAYS sit down and watch a Disney movie (animation). Think golden oldies like Cinderella, Beauty and the Beast, Little Mermaid etc. When I grab a book now, a healthy bit of intense passion keeps me from seeing relationships as cute, puppy-love.
A book I can read and say: ‘Yup, that’s sexy. I’m an adult now and I don’t have to turn around when 2 people kiss onscreen” LOL You get extra points if you have a sexy Sicilian Don in your story ;) I’m looking at you Giovanni Battaglia (Sienna Mynx) or a bit of eyecandy Massimo Torricelli (movie-Michele-version. Kill the book-version dead!!)
So that’s 3 things about me. What makes you tick? Let me know!
PS: ****let it be known that though I mentioned a certain fictional Sicilian Don that is known for extreme abuse in his books (I’ve read reviews, because I don’t understand Polish), I DO NOT condone abuse in any form whatsoever. Let it be said and remembered!!!
PPS: If you have any books to recommend, send them my way. Keep in mind everything I mentioned above. ABCDErotic books are fine too, but the stories tend to be weak and I get bored fast (let’s face it, the focus in those isn’t the story), so give me good balanced books to expand my collection with.
