During the April A-Z Challenge, I’m posting six days a week, following the letters of the alphabet. I'm sharing all the movies, books and games I watched, read and played--all the influences that turned me into the geeky person and writer I am today.
White Tiger by Kylie Chan (2011): This is written by an Australian author about Chinese gods in modern day Hong Kong. The first series is truly fantastic.
The Wheel of Time series by Robert Jordan (1990): This massively long series has taken a lifetime to read--or so it feels. The first few books are particularly good.
War Games (1983): “Do you want to play a game?” The size of the computers in this will give you a chuckle. Gotta love this iconic 80s film.
An American Werewolf in London (1981): For the purposes of today’s post, pretend this starts with W-werewolf. This was a horror that got me laughing so hard, I thought my sides would split. I don’t have the same reaction anymore. The surprise factor got me at the time.
Wreck-It Ralph (2012): A wonderful animated movie about game characters and what they get up to at night when the arcade closes.
World of Warcraft (2004): I’m horribly addicted to this massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) and played every expansion. I currently have four level 90 characters (the highest level you can have in the game at the moment). I generally only play at night now with my hubby after a full day of writing.
Warhammer 40k (1987): I didn’t actually play this table top game. Instead I painted the miniatures that go with the game. I painted so many Space Wolves I think I went slightly insane.
Honourable Mentions: The Walking Dead (2010-), Wonder Woman (1975-79), Willow (1988)
