STACK’s Roving Reporter takes five with Victoria Lewis at JB Hi-Fi Artarmon, NSW.
What’s the best thing about working in games at JB?
New releases! Sharing knowledge of new releases to our customers and staff. I love the hype of new releases that are coming, such as setting up the point-of-sale materials for them, pre-ordering the games for customers and processing the games/hardware. The day of release is always fun because I am hype and the customers are hype as well. So, it’s all-round good vibes!
What’s your earliest video gaming memory?
My earliest video game memory is Donkey Kong on the original Nintendo Game & Watch. My aunty has original Game & Watches at her place with Donkey Kong, Mario and Fireman. They all still work!
What’s your all-time favourite game series?
Just Dance – I’ve been playing since the first game was released. I still remember the first dance that I did, which was Pump Up the Jam and I was hooked! I love dancing, so this game was made for me.
What have you been playing lately?
Animal Crossing: New Horizons. I’ve been playing now for over a year and half, and I’m still going strong. I keep coming back because I want my island to keep turning over, plus I enjoy the village lifestyle like going fishing, digging up fossils, etc. And who can’t get over Isabelle, she is so cute! I love her random saying at the start of each game.
What would be your desert island console?
Nintendo Switch, because it has my favourite games like Just Dance, Animal Crossing and Pokémon. It will keep me going until I die!
