Default I'm sure college/HS age posters can relate...

So I'm about to go into my junior year of college majoring in game design and this morning I just had the marines call me and of course wanting to recruit me and I told the recruiter I was majoring in game design and he asked what games I played and I told him, "older games" and he goes, "oh, like what exactly?" and I didn't quite know what to tell him given everything I play is so obscure so I looked at the game boxes on my desk holding the longest "uh" I have ever spoken and saw Chasm, Descent II, Driver, and Resident Evil and told him, "like the first Resident Evil."
Just thought I'd share that story. I'm sure I'd get a "what the fuck?" if I said, "I play games like Chasm, and Azrael's Tear, and Neverhood, and ZPC"
Though I guess I could've told him Deus Ex and S.T.A.L.K.E.R. and he would've gotten it... maybe...

There's a game available for download here, Princess Maker 2
Seriously though, there's no need to generalize. If others play Deus Ex and S.T.A.L.K.E.R., it doesn't mean you have to, also. If you like to play Chasm or Azrael's Tear than that's good. It's your interests, and everyone has own ones.

I somewhat liked Chasm and Descent.

Does that mean marines will come after me, Mommy?

Well, if someone asked if I played something, I used to say no. In your case you made a good choice telling them you play the first part of a famous series. Optionally tell them you play old games that few people know.

Heck, it's a recruiter over the phone? You're not being conscripted right? You don't have to talk to the guy, just treat him like other direct marketing... "thanks, but not interested".
