Community Member Spotlight: Din

Previous Community Member Spotlights


We’re back with another Community Spotlight! Every month, this series highlights one of our community members on Discord. This month, we learned more about Din!

Rich

Tell us a little about yourself!

Din

My real name is Erik. It always amuses me when people talk about DQXI for this reason. I can’t remember another game character ever sharing my name and even with the exact spelling. I’ve been gaming pretty much my entire life. Also, pretty big into sports, including football. I’m pretty active and other hobbies include biking, kayaking and almost anything else outdoors. As some know, I live out in the middle of nowhere, almost so I’ve got all the nature I can handle haha.

Rich

How long have you been a part of the SwitchRPG community?

Din

For a couple years now. I joined right before the Banner Saga AMA. That was back in May 2020.

Rich

How did you find SwitchRPG.com?

Din

Reddit.

Rich

How old were you when you first got into gaming, and what got you into it?

Din

Oof. That’s a hard one. Probably 3 or 4. My mom was a gamer and that kind of got passed down to me. She had a NES, SNES, Gameboy, etc. Pretty much all the Nintendo consoles at that point.

Rich

What is your favorite RPG subgenre?

Din

Action RPGs, although I am not sure that can still be considered a subgenre anymore. You can even find it in JRPGs now. I guess I would say JRPGs, otherwise. The story has always been the most important thing to me in an RPG. If I’m expected to sit through 30+ hours of content, the story has to draw me in!

Rich

What are some of your favorite RPGs?

Din

Final Fantasy XIV. Witcher 3. Xenoblade Chronicles 1 and 2.

Rich

What RPGs on Switch are you currently playing?

Din

Currently no RPGs on the Switch, but one RPG I am currently playing is Ni No Kuni 2.

Rich

What is your favorite thing about the SwitchRPG community?

Din

You can always learn something. There’s such a huge variation of opinions and you can always find new games you’ve never heard of. Honestly, it’s in part how I got set into the Metroidvania genre and it is one of my favorites now. Also, although we all have varying opinions, the community always keeps things civil. Just like gaming, the community manages to bring together people from all walks of life. We are all a pretty close-knit group and always welcoming of new gamers.

Rich

What game or series would you like to see come to Switch?

Din

Trails in the Sky Trilogy – feels like it would be a great fit for the Switch.

Rich

What Switch titles are you currently anticipating the most?

Din

Probably BoTW2. Zelda is one of my top 3 favorite franchises.

Rich

What is your fondest Nintendo memory?

Din

Playing games with my mom when I was a kid. When I first started I was a little too young to beat games fully, and I remember playing Link’s Awakening together. I would usually get through the dungeons and such, and she would beat the bosses; kind of like a co-op playthrough, haha.

Rich

Anything else you would like to say?

Din

Zelda is not an RPG. Sorry, had to be said.
