STACK’s Roving Reporter takes five with Stef Deisis at JB Home Preston, VIC.
What’s the best thing about working in games at JB?
I’ve been working in games at JB for almost ten years now, and I’d have to say the best thing about working in the department is the amazing products I sell. There’s always so much going on in games from new release titles to new gaming accessories. I have a huge passion for video games and not a lot of people can say they do their hobby as their job.
What’s your earliest video gaming memory?
Playing Halo for hours with my brother! I’ve played through each Halo multiple times, and I could never get bored of the franchise. I have my brother to thank for the love that I have for video games.
What’s your all-time favourite game series?
Assassin’s Creed. I’ve dedicated countless hours to the franchise. I was especially obsessed with Assassin’s Creed Odyssey – I clocked close to 500 hours on that one alone! I’m definitely going to be clocking a lot of hours with Valhalla, too.
What are you playing currently?
I’ve just started playing Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, but I frequently still jump over to Animal Crossing: New Horizons on my Switch. Or, if mates are online, I’ll jump into Call of Duty: Warzone. I also love mucking around in The Sims 4 on PC.
What would be your desert island console?
Ha-ha, can I say all three current gens?! I could use the PS5 as a floating device than the Switch as a paddle and the Xbox Series X to break open the coconuts! It’s actually a really hard choice. I’ve never been a fangirl of just one brand. Each console has its own amazing hardware perks and great exclusive titles.
