Before the 400,000!
(And the fancy blue checkmark verified thingy on Twitter)
I’ve been sitting on this interview for a while, mainly because I’ve had so many writing projects to finish that I had time for little else (I actually have a few interviews like this). In the coming months, I’m really going to work on getting all this content published.
Before I go any further with this interview, I want to congratulate RGT 85 on reaching 400,000 YouTube subscribers! That is a huge milestone, and I can’t wait until he hits 1 million! I have a feeling it will happen sooner than he thinks, and he better not get bougie cause blackmail (I know what really happened to Mitch! 🌱 #MitchForever #HeWasTooYoungToDie #RIP).
I’ve known this nerdboy for a bit now. I love his videos, agree with almost all of his opinions on gaming (except the stretched graphics thing), and he’s the only video game YouTuber I follow/watch. I don’t know why his videos are so entertaining to me, but they are. I watch every single one. There’s just something about his personality, knowledge, and sense of humor that tickles me in all the right places. He’s also a really good dude, someone I talk to regularly, which is why I figured he’d be a good victim for an interview. So here goes nothing…
Me: If you could go back in time and bang any dead celebrity, who would it be?
RGT 85: There was this porn star named Amber Rayne that I used to dig alot. She died though, so I guess her. lol
Me: What is your favorite genre of book to read?
RGT 85: I don’t really read all that much to be honest. I like reading old gaming magazines and stuff because you can find some interesting things that never came out or were hyped up a lot that ended up being bombs. It’s kind of like a time capsule of pre-internet stuff where all your information came from just like a couple different places so it made things interesting.
Me: When you’re not creating YouTube videos or playing video games, how do you like to pass the time?
RGT 85: I like to nap. Naps are dope. Playing guitar is fun as well. I don’t know really, I seem to work like every day so I don’t really get all that much “free time” but I don’t mind it.
Me: What will make you quit playing a video game?
RGT 85: If there’s a game breaking glitch or something. I’ve had that with two games that spring to mind: Dragon Quest Heroes 2 and Travis Strikes Back. DQ Heroes 2 I lost 24 hours because of a glitch with a save and I was like yeah I’m not doing this again. Travis Strikes Back was only like 4 hours lost, but the game sucked so I was like yeah I’m not doing this again.
Me: What was your favorite class in school?
RGT 85: I took Debate and Debate 2 in high school. I was good at it and public speaking so it was an easy class for me.
Me: Speaking of school, fill in the blank: When I was younger, my classmates voted me most likely to _________ when I grew up?
RGT 85: Knowing how I was in high school it was probably “dead”. lol. I actually did win “Most Fun to Be Around” in high school though, so I guess that counts for something.
Me: What’s the hardest thing for you to do as a YouTuber?
RGT 85: Trying to create time to do stuff that’s not work related. I don’t really like taking days off, so trying to balance everything can be a chore as far as doing stuff outside of YT.
Me: Out of all the YouTube videos you’ve made, which one is your favorite?
RGT 85: The Ring Fit Beetlejuice video by far. It was fun and creative. Granted it didn’t get great views but it’s okay, I had fun making it.
Me: How has quarantine changed you?
RGT 85: Really not all that much. Since I work from home in the first place I feel like I’ve been waiting for this moment my entire life to thrive. lol.
Me: What is one thing the world doesn’t know about you but would be shocked to learn?
RGT 85: I enjoy taking bubble baths. I take them pretty often at night to unwind and relax. I usually put on some funny music like Careless Whisper by George Michael and turn out the lights and just relax.
