1) What is your gender?
Female

2) What is grade are you in?
8th, I'm homeschooled, my summer has not come yet. *_*;

3) Do you play videogames?
YYYEEESSS. Best invention ever, next to music. =P

4) .If yes, how long do you play videogames a week?
Longer than 10 hours a week. I play them at least 2 hours a day, and I've played video games for 10 hours in one day before, when I'm really wanting to beat one. XD

5) Why do you play videogames?
Umm.. they're fun! I do like to play Golden Eye sometimes to blow up random people. I like the Facility level, where you can get a scientist in the bathroom stall and blow him up. XD I also enjoy exploring the neat places in the Tomb Raider series. And I like playing video games I played as a kid, for nostalgic reasons. I've loved video games since I was 2 years old. If I ever quit liking video games, someone needs to shoot me...ookay?

6) What’s your favourite type of videogame?
RPG, Action, Adventure, Music, sometimes more. I don't like sports or racing games though..unless they're Mario Kart, Diddy Kong Racing, or one of those fun Tiny Toons sports games. ^_^

7) What’s your favourite game?
I LOVE Mario Bros. games - especially Yoshi's Island, Mario 64, Super Mario World, and Super Mario Bros. 3. I love Donkey Kong Country 2, Animal Crossing, Umjammer Lammy, Parappa the Rapper, Final Fantasy 6 & 8 (I didn't get around to beating 7, I want to though..=/), Sonic series, Kirby series, Tomb Raider series, Earthbound, Bubble Bobble.....so many more...

8) Have you ever hurt yourself playing videogames and how?
Yeah, I got a really bad sore on my thumb from rotating the N64 controller over and over, really fast... the culprit? Mario Party, the level with the bike and the boo. XD A lot of people complained about that, apparently. I just know I had a swollen thumb for several weeks.

-Once I was playing Kingdom Hearts and I was fighting the boss Ursula and I had her down to a sliver of life. I died right before I could get in the final blow and I angrily jumped up and accidently banged my tooth against my bed. This caused nerve damage to my tooth which will cause me to get a root canal in about 10-20 years. Next try I beat her though :)
