Big Black Delta Jonathan is a gamer Electron MagazineEM: Do you game at all?

Jonathan: Yeah!

EM: What do you game?

Jonathan: It depends. I go through phases.

I haven’t bought a PS4 but I’ve been doing Assassins Creed, the latest one with the ships and everything like that.

Sometimes I’ll do Minecraft.

I was a World Of Warcraft guy for a while.

But I had to let that one go because just like everybody you just go – “I’m not going to go out. I’m just going to sit here and level up all night long”. You know what I mean?

EM: Yes! I know exactly what you mean!

Jonathan: Yeah! I just go through phases like that.

EM: What’s your favorite style of game?

Jonathan: The best game ever made is probably Half-Life 2. Valve really knows how to make games. You know? Then you have games like Portal and stuff like that.

EM: Yep — Valve kicks!

Jonathan: I follow an account on twitter called “is Half-Life 3 out yet?” And every month it tweets once and just says “NO”. (Laughs) I don’t think they’ll release 3. Because Half-Life was just too big! It was just too perfect. It was like the Citizen Kane of videogames.

EM: Yeah, anything after that probably couldn’t top it.

Jonathan: I mean, The Last Of Us did a really good job. Did you play that one?

EM: Hadn’t had the chance yet.

Jonathan: The Last Of Us is like a post-apocalyptic kind of… zombie kind of land. The story is like out of a movie – sort of like a Walking Dead episode.

If you have a PS3 man, download it when you get home tonight. It’s up there with Half-Life. It’s a serious download to – I think it’s like 40 gigs or something! What’s cool about it is that you can start the game while it’s downloading. I can’t recommend the game enough! It’ll take you a week or two. You’ll enjoy it!

I’m actually jealous that you haven’t played it yet because you get to play it for the first time!

    He would probably did that.

    He did say when he gets off the road he will be working on his new album and will come on The Electron Show.

    I would love to hear he and Meletius have a convo over Minecraft!
