Owen Isherwood has a long history in Guildford and has had many interactions with the gaming community based here over the years. Both Alex and I grew up playing games and as Directors we felt it was important to support the Guildford.Games community by sponsoring the festival. Guildford’s gaming community is integral to the area and has a huge impact on local job creation, which is something we can get behind as another local employer.
In an ever-increasing digital world we think it is important to support industries/communities that have made a particular physical location their home and events like the Guildford.Games festival are a rare opportunity for people from within and outside of the industry to get together to share ideas and their love for gaming!
Duck Hunt. I remember playing this for the whole day when I was given the NES for Xmas, years ago as a young kid. Nothing to comment on regarding the graphics, plot or gameplay I just have fond memories of shooting ducks all day with an orange plastic gun.
Guybrush Threepwood, so I can dish out zingers in every social situation.
Probably the hours/days spent playing Pro-Evolution Soccer with my mates after school. Roberto Larcos anyone?!
The Metal Gear Solid series.
Now I have 2 young kids I rarely get to ‘wind down’ but if I could play any game it would probably be a golf game like a classic Tiger Woods PGA Tour. No COD stress to be found there…
I will leave this to the experts in the industry!
