Returning from his recent forum absence, @Star-Lord joins us for a quick chat.

 

 



Android: What was your first impression of the community when you joined about 12 years ago? Why did you join initially?

Star-Lord: Wow, it's been a while... I was browsing the forums when it use to be GTA3Forums, but didn't decide to join until I purchased GTA San Andreas (PC) and ended up having installation issues with a PS2 controller. My first impression, was how the staff and community members were so eager to help me out with my problem no matter how insignificant it might of seem, mainly GTA3Freak... And that was the beginning of a cool friendship.


Over the years, has your opinion changed Is there anything you'd like to change about it?

Things are perfect the way they are. As you can see from the member list, the site keeps growing, flourishing each time even more after a new game release and it not going to stop. GTAForums is part of the gaming culture and it's only going to get better. I wouldn't change a thing.


You recently came back after an absence here on the site, what brought you back?

I was inactive for quite some time due to family and personal life affairs. I'd still browse the site but was stuck in a dark place, my father passing away, in a bad relationship and even the passing of my best friend. So yeah, it was a rough road getting back to being myself, but as they say only time can heal wounds. Besides, I missed being part of the biggest GTA community on the Internet.


Tell us about your various usernames and why you chose them.

Wow, this question is hilarious because I've had so many people ask me the same thing over the years. And my response has always been the same, it was a typo for pcguytech_2005, which should of read "PCTechGuy_2005" and it didn't help that was feeling tipsy the day I created the account. As for Darth Plagueis, well you can say I'm an old school Star Wars fan and loved the idea and concept behind the aging sith - was hoping this character would had made it into one of the main movies, or even his own movie with Sheev Palpatine. Obi - We can only hope.


Finally and but not least, Star Lord. After seeing The movie 'Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol.1' I felt in love with the main character played by Chris Pratt, The guy had swagger, was a ladies man and could freaking dance and on top of that he was outspoken and brave. That triggered a Bromance that lead me to change my name once again, and I was feeling tipsy again. When in doubt? Blame it on the booze.


Which forum member(s) have been an influence to you?

Forum members that have influenced me over the years are many, but for the sake of this interview I will only post a few. In non-alphabetical order.



2 - @ODIE

3 - @Waddy

4 - @trip

5 - @PatrickW


Picture this; you've suddenly become an admin here on the forum. What do you do first?

If I were Admin? First and most of all I would be honored. It would mean power and with power comes great responsibility. It would not just mean going up the ranks, but the chance to make a difference and make the community proud. Staying true to yourself, without it changing you and forgetting where you came from, and how you got there.


What's your favorite Rockstar / GTA Title?

My favorite GTA of all time is 'GTA Vice City'. The go to game when I'm feeling depressed, down and out. The game that truly turned me into a GTA fan for life, even after so many years I still play it on regular basis.


Are you a regular on GTA:O? How do you feel about the GTA Online scene and the lack of updates for GTA V SP?

No, I'm not a regular on GTAO. Unfortunately, life gets in the way of things so I'm unable to enjoy myself as much as I'd like to. I feel the GTA community in whole is getting a bad deal with the non-existing updates for single player campaigns, which use to be the backbone of GTA and what made it what it is today. I'd wish the developers would find ways to please both parties so that there wouldn't be a division in between players. Where is the fun in that?


What are you thankful for this Thanksgiving weekend?

I'm thankful because I get to spend quality time with my family and thankful for the small things in life that make us happy.


Apart from PCs and Technology, do you have any other interests, hobbies, favorite music, and so on? Tell us more about the person behind your alias.

In real-life I'm your normal everyday guy who enjoys hanging with friends. I read when i find something that attracts my attention (Stephen King) and the likes. Work on computers that friends and community acquaintances bring over for me to fix - which most of the time i don't charge. Watch SyFy on the weekend, play video games.


Any final comments? Do you have anything to say to our readers & the GTAF community?

I like to thank you for giving me the opportunity to express myself, and I hope everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving and didn't eat too much turkey, that stuff is fattening.


- Mike
