Name: Peter Wackerman
Gaming History: Playing since I was about four years old (around 1990), starting with of course NES and Atari 2600. Always a sports fan addicted to sports games, except for some when they became the same every year (Madden 2003-whenever).
Favorite Games: Super Mario Bros 1 & 3, Sonic the Hedgehog 2, Sunset Riders, R.B.I. Baseball, Joe Montana Football ’94, Tiger Woods PGA Tour ’05 (Although I hope they change the name of the next EA golf games soon), Excitebike 64, NHL Hitz 2003 (Greatest sports game ever), Mario Golf, Ken Griffey Jr. Major League Baseball, NBA Jam, and probably Rock Band 2 for music games
Cake or Pie?: Vanilla Cake
Favorite Developer: Nintendo, Midway, Acclaim, Lucas Arts, and I guess EA
What’s the one game you like that everyone else says is terrible?: Waialae Country Club (It’s only one course, and the gameplay is primitive for golf games nowadays, but the goofy announcer and ultimate backspin shots make it fun, even if you only make it for 3 holes)
Who in the industry would you like to meet?: Miyamoto, or whoever made Hitz to tell them to make a new game…..NOW!
Wii Friend Code: 1490 9194 2661 6020
Other System Profiles: Gamertag – TheWacker34
If you could have one job in the games industry, what would it be?: I’d either be a sports game tester or possibly a console developer. I’ve liked the look and function of some consoles, but we’ve all seen the limits of the different systems, and I think it would be a great challenge to come up with the next phase of gaming.
