Panther Press Reporter Braden Hernandez sat down with Garry to talk about his hobby.
BH: What inspired you to start creating content?
GG: I really enjoy playing video games with my friends.
BH: Which videos were your favorite to create?
GG: So far I've really enjoyed making Valheim videos with you. They were fun to make, and they had a lot of funny moments.
BH: How do you feel about your most popular video?
GG: My most popular video was a video I didn’t expect many people to watch. It was a mod for a very old game yet a lot of people watched it for some reason.
BH: What's your top 2 favorite games?
GG: Roblox is one of my favorite games because I have good memories of it since I was young, but I still play it with my friends today. Yakuza 0 is also another one of my favorite games because I really enjoyed the story, the characters, and I just overall had a good time playing it as well as live streaming it.
BH: Who is your favorite person to play with?
GG: There isn't one person I would prefer to play with over another, but I enjoy playing with AL IVE, El Puncho, Cruzzship, and Chewy [usernames of fellow students].
