Part Three - 2000 - the future
Next generation consoles........the PS3 and Xbox 360 are the main ones that i can think of for the conventional home console systems...Then there's the handhelds...the Nintendo DS and Sony's PSP.
But there's also the Nintendo Wii which is a different type of gaming console and so console combat came haha with company's trying to be the best and also the owners of the different consoles trying to express there opinions to each other. Personally i have no problems with either of them.....heh.....i would own them all if i could.
The Nintendo Wii has been a big hit as its opened up the gaming experience/world to a whole new audience.......it went from being sitting on your own and playing, to multi player (Two player games) experience, then online (and kick butt with someone you've never met) then getting up and having to move around instead of just working your muscles in your thumbs........
It has also lowered the parents worry over gaming as it can be enjoyed by the whole family.
Gaming History Part 3
My game collection at this point included sandbox style, action adventure and street/drift racing. I then was bought a Gameboy advance and had my Pokemon craze on it haha.
I also came across The Sims...Great game, and The Sims 2 even greater! I have to admit, am the owner of a large collection of Sims 2 expansion packs to my computers disgust haha....it lets me know every now and then that it doesn't agree with being over run with Sims gaming....oh well ^_^
I also some how managed to convince my mum at aged 15 to ignore the 18 certificate and buy me Grand Theft Auto Vice City and San Andreas......then she witnessed the pure brilliance of the game and vowed never to take my word for anything again haha ^_^
I was then lucky enough to go on holiday to America just as the PSP came out there.....so added to my love of PlayStation with the PlayStation Portable a couple of months before it released in the UK.
My first game for that was Midnight Club 3 DUB edition......another driving game i know......but very enjoyable ^_^After that i purchased games here and there......tried The Sims on PS2 and wish i hadn't, then thought i would give The Sims 2 Pets on PSP a go.......and no, I'm sticking to The Sims series on PC only!
THEN............ the PS3 was released...........I wasn't to fussed until GTA IV came out......so yes i am a proud owner of a PS3 and am loving it!
Ive only just bought other games for it one of which is surprise surprise another racing game......Midnight Club Los Angeles because i enjoyed it so much on PSP........
*Phew* there......a lil insight to my gaming history haha hope u enjoyed ^_^
