My personal gaming history.
Well, it would seem that games have been around somewhere throughout my life. Being born in the generation of half decent games, games would be a big part of it.
The earliest memory I have is of playing pac-man, I had no idea what I was doing but I remember the bright colours on a old computer screen. I don’t know what I thought of it back then.
(Damn, youre ugly. Also Ive seen this in person in NY, its legit.)
I also have memories of playing the Sega Megadrive over my uncles house, I only remember playing Sonic and a fighting game. Any other game was just awful.
(Kill the fucking cancer patient, you retarded icecream!)
After all this PS2 and Xbox stuff. I spent most of my time playing online games. The first being Legend of Mir. I played it because of its cool gritty feel, you could get swords and all sorts of spells. The weapon levels were cool also. However it wasn’t until I played Ragnarok Online, which has gone onto be my favourite game of all time, that online gaming became much more than just slaying monsters. It’s a 3D world, with 2D sprite characters and monsters. All superbly designed, the sprites simply look beautiful, the amount of monsters in this game means that grinding does not get boring.
(Look at how much love whent into this sprite! And thats just one of many.)
It doesn’t, theres so much choice. Your character customisation is superior to other games, by simply having a huge number of accessories and hair colours. The build system of this game is out of this world, your character can be what ever you want. They came out with Ragnarok Online 2, which was a HUGE FLOP. I played the Korean beta, they tried to reproduce a generic online game. It didn’t work. However now theyre making it more like the original. Hopefuly.
Simply. After all this gaming, I decided to go back and play older games. I did not continue into the 7th generation of consoles and games. I have no Wii, Xbox 360 or PS3. Why? Because there are so many games that were amazing in the past, that didn’t even require good graphics. Why didn’t they require good graphics? Because the games foundations were good.
(PK MAIDS! PK MAIDS! MAIDS!!!! I just like maids.)
I played Earthbound a early this year, its story was amazing, it didn’t matter that I couldn’t run. It mattered that random battles were annoying, but I could wave that because I wanted to see what was going to happen to the main character.
Games of today should look at games of the past, which is why I will continue to look at previous games. The main selling point of the games of this generation is its title. I feel its fucking stupid, no ones making good new games, just remakes. Its like they’ve hit a wall, when that happens you have to go backward, to go forward. And by this I dont mean remaking Pac-Man.
TL;DR : I stopped playing games at 6th gen. I enjoy games before 7th gen more. I want new games not remake titles.
(Also, if Ragnarok Online 2 Legend of whatever, is good. Im going to fail my course. http://ro-projectrevolution.blogspot.com/ Good God!)
Aslo, dont you feel bad when you realise your perants bought you all these games and things? I do. Oddly enough.
