Any wrestling fan knows that WWE Diva AJ Lee is a huge comic book and video game geek. The self-proclaimed Geek Goddess sat down with With Leather and listed her top 10 favorite video games of all time.
In the interview, AJ Lee gives an in-depth look on how each game earned its spot on her Top 10 list and even says that former WWE Champion CM Punk has compared himself to Metal Gear Solid protagonist, Solid Snake.
AJ Lee said to With Leather:
I was really young [when I played it], probably too young to realize how different it was from other games and how cutting edge it was. I remember at first we had a demo for it. I played that so much. It was the first level with him getting to the elevator. I was kind of like, ‘Oh, this is so cool.’ I just sat sneaking around [with] the stealth aspects of it. This sounds really twisted, but I thought it was so cool to sneak up behind people and snap their necks [with] the little twitch-twitch-twitch and then it just cracks. [Laughs] I was so little and I was like, ‘This is so awesome!’ I was really into that, and once I actively played the whole thing, it was a movie that you were a part of. It was so cool. I could play that now and the story would still be better than a lot of stories that are in games right now. To me, it’s the best game of all time. I have all the action figures on my shelf in my office. Big Meryl fan. Playing the most recent one was cool because everyone came back in it. I love every the Metal Gear Solid series, but I don’t think any other game in the series can match the feel of the first one—or technically Metal Gear Solid, not the actual first one on Nintendo.
[CM Punk and I] were talking about Snake the other day, actually. [Laughs] He was trying to compare himself to Solid Snake. [I said], ‘You are not cool enough to be anywhere near Solid Snake.’ [Laughs]
AJ Lee is wrong about one thing, CM Punk is just as cool as Solid Snake. AJ Lee will be taking part in WWE’s flagship event Wrestlemania 29 this Sunday in East Rutherford, New Jersey.
