CAITLIN OLIVER: SPLATTERHOUSE
Oliver’s love of the gruesome from age three made Splatterhouse the ideal game to master when she got a TurboGrafx 16 as a Christmas present. Since she’s fortunate enough to live near a vintage arcade, Oliver practises her high-score attempts on original Splatterhouse hardware. She finds MAME too inaccurate, and believes the arcade environment helps hone her focus too, with all its noise, bystanders and other distractions. At home, she’s amassed a huge game collection and loves JRPGs in particular, with
Earthbound as a favourite. Her guilty pleasures are FMV-driven games of the ’90s: “They are an endless source of amusement for me”.
