During our interview with A Cursive Memory, we asked Shaun, Colin, Mark and Dillan what their top five games for the tour were. Here were there responses:
1. Super Smash Bros. for N64
Shaun and Mark were emphatic that it was the Nintendo 64 version of Super Smash Bros. they were hopelessly addicted to, not Melee which was “whack” or Brawl which was “whack too.”
2. Call of Duty: World at War
By CoD:WoW, they really meant Nazi Zombies, which they were playing both before and after our interview and referenced during their show.
3. Sonic the Hedgehog
This was Dillan’s pick. There was no explanation needed.
4. Grand Theft Auto
The guys were tied between Vice City and San Andreas as their favorite. However, since they grew up in San Andreas, it led to this anecdotal exchange:
SHAUN “Mark will just roll up, sock an old lady in the face, and take her money.”
COLIN “That’s my life at home. Running people over. We’re wanted.”
SHAUN “For fun, we see who can get a tank on [the cops] the fastest.”
5. A toss up
The number five spot was a tie between Call of Duty 4 (Colin), Mortal Kombat: Armaggedon (Dillan) Pac-Man (Mark) and Hanoi for the iPhone (Shaun).
So there you have it, the top five (or eight) games A Cursive Memory plays while on tour.
