Ask @ZackScottGames:

What are you talking about with Duck Dynasty?

I usually try to avoid most controversy on Twitter because I have a limited number of words to use, and words carry different connotations to different people. Also, I have the habit of droning on and making numerous tweets attempting to clarify my opinions. That's why I like ask.fm!
I'm not trying to pass judgement calls on individuals, but I know Duck Dynasty is frequently criticized for being sexist, among other things. With the amount of criticism other developers have received lately after being accused of sexism in video games, I'm surprised Activision is going forward with publishing their Duck Dynasty title. It just seems like a risky move with how vocally opposed to sexism in video games various groups have been lately.

Who was the biggest inspiration to your lets play career and what's your overall view of lets playing as a whole?

KirbyKart641
In order: @ThaRadBrad, @tobyturner, and @SSoHPKC
TheRadBrad because right when I started my channel, he messaged me some very kind words, featured my channel at the side of his channel, and I've always admired his work ethic. He's given very solid advice for me the whole way through.
Tobuscus because he too was nice and helpful, and he and I both had been on YouTube doing non-gaming content for awhile prior.
SSoHPKC because he played my Super Mario World ROM hack and in general had some friendly advice.

Why are youtubers so famous? They don't exactly work.

They do work. I put more than 40 hours into my YouTube channel a week. I work on it 7 days a week. It's been that consistent for over three years, and I've been doing YouTube videos since 2006. Anyone like me has poured hours of love and labor into their craft. Everyone I know who has reached any level of fame on YouTube is dedicated to their work. We record, edit, and upload our videos. We network, communicate with our viewers, and have meetings. We learn new skills, keep up with technology, and learn how to operate computers. YouTubers do it all.
Look, I know what your definition of work is. I spent five years at a university to get my Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering while also working at a call center. I have been employed full-time as an engineer for years. It took a lot to pull that off, but I'm proud. It was all hard work.
YouTube is harder.
So why are YouTubers so famous? Because they work.

How important is Facebook to a mobile game?

I think less important than ever. Facebook used to be the go-to place for free-to-play games with micro-transactions. Now it's all about iOS and Android. But still, developers give incentive for their players to connect their Facebook accounts. I think social network integration is important, but Facebook's popularity is waning with the younger crowd. I'd prefer a wider selection or for developers to provide their own social networks.

Can we watch your lives at Twitch without subscription? And what is the difference of following you on Twitch and subscribing to your channel on Twitch? And will you play other games at Twitch and not on YouTube? Thanks for answering :D

Magikarp
Absolutely! A Follow on Twitch is basically like a Subscription on YouTube. It's free, and it's a way to keep up with my livestreams. A Subscribe on Twitch is a monthly fee where you get extra privileges in chat and access to special Subscriber-only events. It's basically a way to voluntary support my Twitch channel monetarily. I'm not against making a profit this way, but in the early stages I'm spending it all on making my Twitch experience better. I've already spent a lot on moobot to have the ZackScottBot in the chatroom, and I'm also putting up an UHC Minecraft Server that will be available only to Subscribers.

As an electronic engineer, what's your best moment, Zack? Greetings from Indonesia! :D

Yandri Tjiu
I like the design process much more than the implementation process because if you can come up with a good design, it can change everything. Without being too specific, my best moments have always been ones in which someone (sometimes myself) is at a roadblock, and then I come up with a design that makes the project work.

I watched your last part of the wolf among us episode 5 what do you think is the story of neresa ? What is your opinion ?

I'm a bit confused overall. There is definitely something really shady about her actions. And the game made a point to have Bigby realize the things she said were very similar to Faith. I think it's highly likely Nerissa was glamoured as Faith when Bigby met her. Or perhaps Faith never died and is Nerissa all along?

Whats your opinion on Time Zones?

Time zones make sense because the sun rises at different times for different locations. Also, many are just offsets of UTC time, which is good. I give those times an A+ or an A. Timezones with Daylight Savings Time I give a C-. I dislike Daylight Savings Time.

What game had a really memorable moment for you like a shocker crazy jump scare etc.

KirbyKart641
I'm a jumpy person, so to me, a lot of games have crazy jump scares! Games like Slender have the craziest. But since you asked for the most memorable, then the first thing that comes to memory is Bioshock Infinite. I'll upload a Vine of it soon, but that game had a jump scare that was out of nowhere, and it really got me!
