Anarchy Online's writer Nina "Aythem" Sund returns in another TenTonHammer developer journal talking about her journey towards becoming a game writer:
TTN: What other games/game genres do you like?
Aythem: Apart from MMOs, my favorite games are usually in the RPG and action/adventure genre. Some of the most precious memories from games come from Planescape: Torment (the first game I could be bothered to actually finish and that moved me to tears), the Tex Murphy series and Funcom's own The Longest Journey, which I played before I even knew Funcom was Norwegian and to this day stands as a pinnacle of storytelling in games.
I have also to an extent, and quite self-torturingly, enjoyed some 'horror' games where I must list Phantasmagoria: A Puzzle of Flesh and Silent Hill (for Playstation 1) as my all-time favorites. In recent years, I've enjoyed console games a lot too, and I'm currently playing Mass Effect, another game that scores high on storytelling.
You may notice the lack of FPS games here, which is solely credited to the fact that I am absolutely rubbish at them. I have played some Quake Wars though, and enjoyed it. Plus, I see how popular Team Fortress 2 is among my colleagues, so I might give it a go sometime. Just don't expect me to ever hit a Top 100 list of players. Hah!
