An Extra Life of Sunshine Blogging

Once again I was nominated by an awesome person for a Sunshine Blogger Award. This time I was nominated by Extra Life Reviews in this post which was back in April so it has taken a while to get an answer posted (sorry!). Maybe I should have posted this before I posted the last award response post but I have got there. Thanks Extra Life Reviews for nominating me.

As I’m sure you have seen there are some rules, and this time I will be doing some tags.

Thank the blogger(s) who nomjnated you in a blog post and link back to their blog.

Answer the 11 questions the blogger asked you.

Nominate 11 new blogs to receive the award and write them 11 new questions.

List the rules and display the Sunshine Blogger Award logo in your post and/or on your blog.

What is the dumbest competition you ever got in with your friends?

I had a friend at school who would always want to compete over grades and marks, just the one friend in that group. I mean within my group of friends at that stage we all got similar grades. Somehow this one wanted to be known as the best at everything. We didn’t even do all the same classes so grades worked. Except that magically this friends grade for Subject X was automatically better than my exact same grade at Subject Y. If I got a higher mark, theirs was marked wrong. The comparison between subjects, my subject was easier. I wasn’t even in this competition really, except that this person treated it as such and the rest of us were automatically enrolled in the competition. It made no difference in the long run, made no difference to anyone if one of us got 4 more marks than the other.

If you could form a band, which genre of music would you end up playing?
Probably pop to be honest. I’m not really a music person but I like things I can sing along to so that would suit me. Though I may question whoever wants me as part of their band.

What is the first film you ever watched in theaters?
I honestly can’t remember.

What is the oldest film you’ve watched all the way through?
Probably Snow White and the Seven Dwarves (1937).

Have you ever fallen asleep watching a film before?
Yes, lots of times. I’m terrible for it. I can stay awake watching multiple episodes of tv programmes to the length if a film but something about films have the knack of putting me to sleep. Some that I enjoy and have watched in full, and others that I wasn’t a fan of. Sleep is possible during any film for me.

What is your personal record for most number of films watched in a day?
I think my maximum was 3.

What is the single most heretical opinion you hold when it comes to video games?
Probably that I don’t care about 4K graphics and all the tiny little nit-picking things that gamers argue over. As long as it plays ok and I enjoy it then I don’t care if it doesn’t have 4K graphics.

What is your proudest achievement playing a game?
I think I was most proud of beating my other half at any sort of competitive game. Whenever we play 2 player competitive it tends to be a game he is better at, just with the way things fall, so any time I beat him I’m super proud.

What do you believe to be one of the few advantages that gaming critics have over film critics?
I think the ability to be a bigger part of the experience as gaming is more interactive than watching films.

Have you ever binge-watched a show?
No not at all. What no one believe me after the falling asleep question? Ok yes I have. Also means perfect chill out gaming time with my 3DS or Switch just playing some relaxing games with a favourite tv show on at the same time can make for a fab evening.

Do you follow any webcomics?
Yes, Piled Higher and Deeper aka PhD Comics by Jorge Cham. I sometimes dip into a few others but I follow PhD Comics.

I nominate:

Marfo343 who I have only met recently but is really supportive and took part in my Question of the Month question

Kelly at Why We Play Games who I met fairly recently and think you should check out her list of favourite games

Zerathulu who recently posted this piece on Stories Untold

Khinjarsi at Upon Completion for the A-Z of gaming me posts

Scots Gamer Geek who is really friendly and has some thoughts on what he would like to see from the next Halo game

Normal Happenings who has recently worked on an amazing Hyrule collaboration with fellow bloggers

Your mission, if you choose to accept it, is to answer the following questions (no pressure to do this if you don’t want to).

Name 5 things that make you happy.

Favourite video game character?

What was the last game you played?

If you could experience one game again for the first time, what game would you choose?

Are there any games that you wish had got a sequel?

Favourite way to play: PC or console?

Home console or handheld (or in the case of a switch – docked or handheld)?

If you could have a video game character as a sidekick who would you choose?

Crash Bandicoot or Spyro the Dragon?

Pikachu or Eevee?

Games based on films or films based on games?

Let me know if you answer my questions. Also if you haven’t been nominated but want to answer my questions then by all means go ahead and let me know when you do.

  1. Well done you!

    The falling asleep thing for movies is quite funny. I remember watching the Warcraft movie and my Fitbit telling me I’d been asleep for 45 minutes of it. I’d been awake the whole time, but that’s obviously how low my heart rate must have reached!

    1. Haha that’s amazing. You must have been so calm with such a low heart rate. I don’t know what it is with films recently. Luckily I haven’t fallen asleep at the cinema as far as I have noticed but on the sofa in the evening it is possible. Not every film makes me but every film has the option to make me sleepy. Hopefully I’ll pass through this stage.
