We’ve accounted some of our favorite local music acts who revealed themselves to be avid gamers! You might want to see for yourselves who are our Weekly 5 Gamer Musicians!
Beneath the calm, cool and collected exterior of singer-songwriter Edward Ramirez, he’s quite a gamer himself! Like grace under pressure, he prefers to play stealth games like Assassin’s Creed and Splinter Cell. He also plays PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds and Metal Gear series from time to time.
But among all of the games he plays, survival games keeps him going. Silent Hill was the game that made him enjoy the thrill, the friendships and bondings that video games provide.
A local artist and musician, Daintsu is a free soul, with a lot of creativity pouring out of her. Her quirkiness blows everyone away with enthusiasm. But putting that aside, she spends her free time with her friends playing their favorite games. When she’s not making music, she build her own world in Sims, creates frenzied chaos in Mario or embarks on her destiny playing Pokemon.
