GamingNexus was able to secure an interview with former Democratic presidential candidate Joe Lieberman. Senator Lieberman hasn’t exactly been an overwhelming supporter of the gaming industry, so we were a little surprised when he answered our request for an interview.


GamingNexusAfter taking yourself out of the 2004 presidential race, what are you up to these days?

Lieberman I’ve been relaxing quite a bit, the race does take a bit out of you. I’m also finally getting a chance to work my way through the pile of video games sitting next to my computer. You don’t know how many of these freebies get sent to my office when you’re a high profile public figure. It’s like every game company wants your opinion. One of the perks of running for the presidential candidate I guess.

GamingNexusReally? We didn’t really see you as much of a gamer.

Lieberman I’ve been a gamer since way back, I’m an OG. In fact you can trace me to my Atari days when I used to spend hours on Custer’s Revenge on the 2600. Man, the good ole days.

GN OG?

Lieberman Original Gamer. I was surrounded by 2600 cartridges, Vectrex overlays, and 5 ¼ floppies for my Commodore 64.

GamingNexus That’s what we thought but wanted to make sure. What games are you playing now?

Lieberman I’ve always been into FPS games ever since Wolfenstein3D came out. Right now I’m really grooving on Far Cry. Have you seen the graphics in that game? I’m also playing a lot of UT2K4, Assault mode is the SHIZNIT.

GamingNexus Cool, can you tell us what your screen name is so people will recognize you online?

Lieberman I usually plays as JoM3ntum. That’s what you’ll see and a rocket when you meet me in the arena, ya digg?
