Jamie Gray Hyder considers herself more as a casual, physical gamer. In this exclusive interview we take a few minutes to chat about her love for Nintendo Wii, favorite games and what a True Blood video game would be like at the Stiks Charity Gaming Gala.
Are you a gamer?
I am more of a classic gamer myself. If I’m going to play anything typically it was on Nintendo or Super Nintendo. I can’t deal with the complicated ones, but I do like watching them because it’s like watching a film. You know.
Exactly. What was your favorite videogame?
I’m a Super Mario Brother’s girl.
Do you have a favorite character?
Mario Cart. Ooh. Toadstool I think probably.
The toad is my favorite.
Most under rated character. Did you ever see the Super Mario movie?
I did and then there was also a live action show I think at one point. Very awkward grown men in overalls. That was pretty funny to watch.
Best moment ever.
So, what videogames are you playing right now though? Are you playing old school, new school,
I would be more of a Wii player now. I just – I can’t focus enough to keep up with all the complicated options, but you know I do like Wii. I’m better when I’m active and moving around. So for me that’s more my type of game, but a lot of my friends are into a lot of the more complicated first person shooter games and all that. Like I said I’ll watch those but they’re too complicated for me to figure out.
So on a scale of one to ten what kind or gamer are you as far as like really bad to really good?
I’m good at the games I choose to play. That’s why I don’t play any other.
That would be rated E for everyone?
Yes, exactly. Yeah. I’m okay with that too.
So if you think any movie could become a videogame what do you think it’d be?
You know I work on True Blood and I think that would make an excellent videogame. You die. You don’t always die. You come back as something else, and there’s so many different creatures and there would be so many different things you have to fight against. You have to know how to kill each one individually because they all require different things. So I think they should consider making a True Blood videogame.
All right. So let’s say there is a True Blood videogame. You’re playing. You’re in it. Who would you kill
Oh, well, I’m one of the werewolves on the show so it would depend on the given conflict but I have a feeling that we’d be going after the vampires because we want that vampire blood.
A little revenge offset.
Yes, a little bit.
