I've seen a lot of staff and fellow users come and go. But i have lingered on this site. I've been trying to make the places i have posted in a great place to be in. Even though people i have liked have left, i've still met some great people. I've been gaming now for 20+ years and i am happy to be a gamer, now more than ever. To have this easy access to talk and share ideas is awesome.
My first gaming console was the original Gameboy and never got to play the original NES. But i eventually got the SNES where i played Yosh's Island, International Super Star Soccer Deluxe and Bubsy. I then saved up money with my brother in a piggie bank and bought the N64. I got Super Mario with it. I remember my amazment just going around jumping and climbing trees in 3D. I eventually got Mario 64, which is still my favorite Mario Kart. I then eventually saved up PS2 by myself for two years and found my favorite game(with Mass Effect 2) in Final Fantasy X. I also finally got a dvd player where i could play all my dvd's that i got. I later got Dragonball Z Budoka 2 & 3, Battlefront and other awesome games. I got late into the seventh gen. I got the 360 in 2008, where i've had a lot of games. In 2012 i finally got the PS3, it took me that long because of the PS3 did cost 1000$ when it was released. And it's been my main platform since. I also bought a PS4 where i've had a blast, but still waiting for the games to come out for it.
I've also gotten a Gameboy Advanced, 3DS and Vita. But they haven't been my main platforms of gaming.
Now that i think back on all that and now to the future. I still think that we will have consoles in the future. I still think there will be one after this. It was the same discussion last generation where everyone called consoles dead before the new generation was launched. I don't think it's going anywhere anytime soon. I think they will become more open to so called gimmicks or additional hardware. I still think that games will come to consoles because we like having that type of experience. The PC will always be there, it's always going to be a choice. The consoles however are something special to me, even though that i have gone back forth from consoles and pc from time to time for various reasons.
What do you guys see in the gaming future after this generation?
