AS GAMES EVOLVE, A GREATER DEPTH OF GAMEPLAY IS UNLEASHED
Again with the evolution of technology, my tastes for gaming changed. With games making a shift into three-dimensional graphics, gaming enviroments became more in depth. No longer were players confined to a set in-game path, but were dropped into whole worlds to explore.
With the release of the Nintendo 64 even some of my favorite game characters, such as Mario made their transition.
With more and more gamers going online, I figured it was time for me to join. I saved up money, and bought a new gaming computer. As I began hooking everything up, I was reminded of the excitement I felt when I hooked up my first gaming system. I then became interested in the world of massively multiplayer online games, such as World of Warcraft. There I would interact with other gamers all over the world, as we explored the vast in game world.
But my overall favorite gaming sub-genre emerged. A genre where you are put in the player’s perspective, and placed into virtual arenas where ever shot counts, and any mistake could mean death. I speak of the first person shooter genre. And with games like Counter-Strike I compete with teams across America. Nothing is more satisfying that ambushing an enemy and filling them with bullets; Unless of course the plan backfires and they kill you first. LOL
