My fist gaming counsel was the N64 when I was approximately three years old. I began playing Super Mario 64, with much trouble. I had more fun running around the vibrantly colored maps and jumping on little mushroom guys, than trying to complete the storyline by collecting the 120 stars. As I grew up I started evolving in my choice of generas. I started to play Halo: Combat Evolved with my friend who had an Xbox, it was an entirely new style of play, I was hooked! Later that year I bought an Xbox for myself with Halo: CE, at the time I thought the graphics where amazing, they looked so realistic. When Halo 2 came out with multiplayer over Xbox Live things took a turn that would change my life for the worse, no longer did I have to go to a friends house to play with them, no longer did I have to play the campaign over and over again because my friends weren’t home, I had access to online games 24/7 and I loved it! When the Xbox 360 came out I bought it almost immediately, I bought Halo 3 when it came out and it was everything I was expecting and more. In the last two years I have moved from Halo onto games such as Battlefield, Call of Duty, The Elder scrolls series, Diablo II, Runescape, and others. I love video games for the stories they tell, the experiences you share with your character, and the thrill of the kill. But with the good has also come the bad, I have become detached from society, If I have a video game I don’t need humans interacting with me physically to feel content. Yet with this in mind I will keep playing video games.
