Ask @J2xp:

Would you rather be stranded on a desert island with a Tiger Game Com or Nokia N-Gage? (You can have whatever games for the system you like, and unlimited batteries)

Lïghtnïng Georg
Well the Game Com has the worst screen ever made, making as fun as rocks (something islands have plenty of) so I think the entertainment value goes to the N-gage. Plus the Game Com is so heavy, carrying it around would burn valuable energy. However, as a tool for survival, the Game Com is so heavy, it can be used to smash the skulls of dolphins, and the stylus doubles as a spear. N-gage got nothing on that, except for a screen you can see and decent games.

What was something you expected yourself to "outgrow" only to find yourself keeping it after you got older?

Eto
Pretty though question. I can't say I ever "expected" to "outgrow" much of what I do now, but the fact that I still play primarily older kids' games and watch cartoons is pretty remarkable, I suppose.
The fact that I'll still play old nostalgic games from time to time is not something I expected to go on for so long, but here we are, and I overall would say I prefer older games to newer ones.
I guess cartoons fit the answer pretty well. In 2009-ish (during the dreaded CN Real era), I kind of stopped watching cartoons all together, and starting watching channels like History Channel, or Discovery Channel, or Animal Planet. Even 12 year old me preferred those channels' content over CN Real or Nick's offerings at the time. So I guess during that time, I "outgrew" cartoons, and preferred reality shows on those channels. Then in like 2012, 2013, my interest in cartoons was really reinvigorated by probably Regular Show was what did it. And here we are today. Actually cartoons differ from games to me, in that (right now at least), lot of my favorite cartoons were made in the last 5 years, although I still like some old ones, the new ones are pretty great.
Long answer, may or may not have mad much to do with the question, but it was the best I could do.

Are you still the same as you were years ago, or have you changed at all? And if so, what about you has changed?

Eto
I've changed a lot in the past 5 years, and now I've graduated from High School. I know a lot more than I did years ago, but at my core I feel that I am the same person. I feel deep down at heart I will always be the same person, have the same beliefs, opinions, and interests as I've always had, and will continue to have. Only with aging comes responsibility...

Ever make impulse-buys? If so, which was your best one? Your worst?

Eto
Yes I do. One example of a good one was, I was at Hot Topic yesterday and they had a Mabel Pines plush I'd been eyeing in Amazon, and even at $15 I bought it up.
One of the worst things I bought was a really cheap Composite to HDMI converter. It was sort of impulse. Anyway the picture quality was horrendous and I regretted the purchase.
