Good thing none of my family check my Deviantart Page. Heee. So I'm HORRIBLY poor this year, so I decided to make some 'character charts' for my family since all of them at some point in time enjoy video games.
My Brother: He's adorable, and an intelligent little man. He's already creating his own levels and packs for Minecraft and VVVVVVVV, he's small though so has an old laptop, and limited funds, so I tend to help him out by pointing him in the direction of indie bundles he can use his pocket money on.
Loves Minecraft, Terraria, VVVVVVV and Sonic the Hedgehog (He has all the plushies and pjs)
My Sisters Boyfriend: Don't let the image fool you, he's a mild mannered sweetheart, if I ever wished for an older brother it would be he. But the niche he fills is his love of the 'Manly games', Call of Duty, Mass Effect. He enjoys other games I can relate with as well, Like Portal, iphone games and such, but since it's the void in the family this is what he gets stuck with. XD
Loves MANRY Games, and lots of others
My Sister: While not typically as fanatic about games as me, she makes a hobby out of her looks and hair (it could be blonde now for all I Know) and to all appearances otherwise would come across as a stereotypical girly girl. And then sometimes a few times a year, magical moonrays will affect her brain and she'll come asking me for a few video games. She picked up Skyward Sword and Portal 2 this year and plowed on through the night. Used to love playing games with me when we were little but would throw a tizzy if I won. Broke my sega controller once in this manner.
Loves Zelda, Portal, Final Fantasy
My Mum: Ahhh my Mum, where would I be without her. When I was very small she rented out a gameboy (yes you read that right) at a hotel, and with it came 'Wario Land', the original, she never put it down the entire time and for that period I watched her. From then on she noticed my fixation with games and nurtured it accordingly with consoles. Through the years though she's dipped in on several games, ranging from Spyro the dragon, Sonic the Hedgehog and such, but mostly just enjoys the casual scene now. Legends says she once had some time on World of Warcraft as well.
Loves Angry Birds, Bejeweled, Peggle
My Dad: Again, my dad was the counter balance, he's never shown a huge passion for games, but I did one time wake up in the night to see both of my parents relentlessly ploughing through Sonic 2 to groans and frustration but clearly having fun and it's such a happy memory. My dad also played Half Life when it first came out and enjoyed watching his wacky Spanish friend play counter-strike and loosing to the millions of hackers that game had. But due to recent years he rarely picks up a game anymore, sometimes though we'll sit on the wii and hand him a controller but he mostly has no idea what's going on. Enjoys Linux though and is genuinely interested in seeing the Linux Steam version come to fruition.
Loves Half-Life, watching games being played
