Robert Griffin III is a Video Game Nerd Just Like You and Me
The NFL Draft is less than a month away, but Robert Griffin III can't wait for March 6 when the massively popular role playing video game “Mass Effect 3” is released. Griffin is an All-American, but he's pretty excited to save America and planet Earth from the Reapers in ME3.
In an interview with IGN, Griffin said that his favorite games are “Dragon Age: Origins” and “Mass Effect 2.” I could see Griffin being a very dangerous sniper in “Mass Effect” since he posted an amazing 72.4 completion percentage last season. RG3 also revealed more nerdy details about himself, “Man, I love the Lord of the Rings movies. Some people would say I'm weird for liking those types of movies, but they are so cool.” Griffin explained his interest in fantasy video games and movies, “cause I will never get to experience anything like that, going out there with a sword and shield and fighting demons that don't exist.”
We also discover that RG3 is a comic book fan and his favorite superhero is the Incredible Hulk. “David Banner is pretty smart. I like to think I'm pretty smart with what I was able to do academically, but whenever I get on the field I turn into the Incredible Hulk and I am unstoppable,” says Griffin. Makes complete sense since Griffin earned his degree from Baylor with a 3.67 GPA, but he was an absolute monster on the field by racking up 4,657 total yards last season.
