My journey into gaming started when I was five-years-old when my family got our first gaming console: a Super Nintendo. My love of games has only grown ever since. My gaming habits eventually migrated to PC being exposed to Tomb Raider, Freespace, Half Life, Thief, and the Elder Scrolls series to name a few.
Through my teen years, like many others, had a rough go with school and my home life while not bad still offered little relief in terms of stress. I knew at the end of the day I had gaming to rely on. As the internet became more prevalent I was able to connect with more people who shared my passion.
My current gaming rig. “An elegant weapon…for a more civilized age.”
As this generation of consoles comes to a close, now has been a time of reflection on this generation, and speculating the next to come.
The PS4 officially launches tomorrow, at midnight in many places, and the XboxOne to follow soon after.
I started the last generation as a devout Xbox fan. I was one of the unlucky people who had multiple hardware failures, but I still stood by my investment.
The 360 was a good enough machine that allowed me to abandon PC gaming for a short time.
I let my Xbox Live Subscription expire because it started to feel more like an advertising service than a gaming service.
