Bitten Suicide is this week’s SuicideGirl Gamer of the Week. Like most gamers, she has been playing video games ever since she was a kid. RealGamerNewz spoke with Bitten about her love for bats, cats, serial killers, and of course video games.
So what made you choose the name Bitten?
I chose the name Bitten because I love bats. I currently have seven bats tattooed on me. I have a huge collection of bat items as well. I own a ton of clothing, a poster on my bedroom wall, a bat-shaped spatula, stuffed animals, plates, cups, and a few ceramics that are all bats. This is just a short list of all my bat items! Halloween is the best time of the year to pick up new items for my house, of course. It all started when I chose to do a paper on bats when I was in college. I learned what fascinating and beautiful creatures they were. I’ve been obsessed ever since.
When did you first start playing video games?
I have been playing video games since I was very little. I remember playing a Mario game so much when we first got it that the music brainwashed me or something! I was forced to go to bed and would hear the music and get angry my parents were up playing it but they actually weren’t! I swore I heard the theme music loud and clear.
Some of my favorite games are Zelda, Final Fantasy 3, Chrono Trigger, ActRaiser, Castlevania, and Guitar Hero. I really love the old school game. They are more focused on storyline rather than just the graphics. If the story sucks then I lose interest in playing pretty quickly. I like to be dragged into the game where that is all I think about when I’m not playing.
Which Zelda games are your favorites?
I love all the Zelda games. They are all awesome but if I had to choose I would choose Majora’s Mask. I loved all the side quests in that game. My favorite is where you have to give the paper to the guy in the toilet. Hahaha. I think I’ve beat that one three times. Next would be the original one. I’ve beat that one fifty times at least! I recently played the third Zelda game. Man, that was so difficult! I gave up. I downloaded it on my Wii. It had a lot of glitches in it.
You also mentioned Chrono Trigger as one of you favorite games. Did you ever play the sequel, Crono Cross?
No unfortunately I’ve never played Chrono Cross. I should put it on my list. If it is a good as the first one that would be amazing. I just can’t imagine it happening. I’d love to be proven wrong though!
Playing anything currently?
Right now I am playing two games. First is Infamous: Second Son. It is really hard! I started on normal but kept dying so switched over to easy. It still took me over an hour to get past one part in the game! You can choose to be good or bad in that game. For example in the very beginning of the game you can choose to confess to save your friend or have her take the fall. The choice you make changes the outcome of the game pretty immensely. If you are good, the crowd cheers you on and if you are bad they run screaming from you when you walk around. It also changes the powers you have as well. It is definitely a unique part in the game that makes it really fun. Plus when you beat the game you can replay it with a different outcome! The second game I’m playing is Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn. I’ve always been a huge Final Fantasy fan. XIV is an MMORPG so it’s pretty different from the older Final Fantasy games. I also just got done playing the new Tomb Raider on the Playstation 4. I beat it four times. I really enjoyed that game a lot.
So being how you feel about bats, is Batman your favorite superhero?
Yes of course Batman is my favorite superhero! I own all the Batman movies and saw them all in the theaters. I have a couple Batman items in my collection.
Which Final Fantasy world do you think would be the coolest to actually live in?
I really like the character I have made in A Realm Reborn. She is a miqo’te arcanist. I really like that race because of the cat ears she has. I made her pretty hot. She has two minions currently. I would love to be friends with her in real life so I would like to live where she does in Limsa Lomsa.
Aside from Tomb Raider what other PS4 games do you have that you would recommend?
Outlast was fun but really scary! You are a reporter at an asylum. All these crazy guys are trying to kill you. It is intense because you cannot defend yourself. All you can do is hide. I just finished Infamous: Second Son the other day, too. I am sad it is over. I am going to start Assassin’s Creed soon. I bought it long time ago but got distracted by Tomb Raider.
What inspired you into becoming a SuicideGirl?
Just look at the girls! They are all stunningly beautiful! Who wouldn’t want to be connected to that? If I would of been told I was going to be a model five years ago I probably would have laughed my ass off. Taking these pictures and meeting so many of the SGs and other members has made me feel amazing.
If you were to ever get a video game-related tattoo what do you imagine it would it be?
If I were to ever get a video game tattoo it would have to be the original Castlevania bat. You know, the very first boss. Not sure how well that would translate into a tattoo though since it isn’t that detailed but it is a bat! I would probably put it on my thigh. I’m digging thigh tattoos lately. I have a narwhal on mine. Not scary at all but very girlie. I decided after all my bat and owl tattoos I needed a “girlie” tattoo.
Outside of video games, what are some of your other hobbies?
I love animals a lot. My hobbies are spoiling my two cats George and Callista. They are my fur babies. I also love to read about serial killers. John Wayne Gacy is my favorite. He was a clown who killed boys. I mean how creepy is that? If I didn’t know better I would think it was a bad horror movie plot instead of real life. They are so fascinating. I am addicted to real crime shows, too. Man I sound so macabre. Bats and serial killers hahaha.
Where can fans find more of you?
