I have been playing on computer games for as long as I can remember. This began with Super Mario on the NES and currently I am playing on Soul Calibur 4 on my PS3 and I’ve also began to go through Tomb Raider Anniversary again. But what happened from then to now is pretty extensive. After Super Mario my sisters and I began to play on our Sega Megadrive with games like Sonic the Hedgehog and Streetfighter. I would go around to my cousin’s house quite a lot because he had a Playstation. It was there that I discovered Tomb Raider and straight away I knew I had found one of my most favourite games. Even now it is a personal classic of mine and I am eagerly awaiting the release of Tomb Raider Underworld, the first of the series to go next-gen.
Anyway, after I discovered Tomb Raider I finally got a PS1 of my own. It was Christmas and I had been nagging my poor mum for months. Then my friend introduced me to another personal favourite, Final Fantasy VII. From there I discovered many new games but none were as important as the next leap in gaming evolution which was the PS2. I was getting older and my taste in games was expanding broadly. For example, I made a hasty and worthwhile purchase in GTA3 and other games I fell in love with were Burnout, God of War and Disgaea, to name a few.
Now I own a PS3 and I have continued to follow the development of my favourite games. The evolution of computer games is the core reason that I have carried on playing and it’s the reason I am going to keep on playing, to assure that I witness all future advancement the gaming industry makes.
