25 years a gamer
<center> Another day another tribe</center>



As a small introduction I want to give you a bit about my history as a gamer.

I am now 36 years old and I guess I was around 10 when I bought myself from my saved up chrismas/birthday money a Game Boy.

If my parents would know how big this influence would be for the rest of my life, I am not sure if they would have allowed it.

As times goes on there were many consoles and platforms but I want to focus on the highlights.


<center>The SNES</center>

Probably still my favorite console as I think the graphic style is timeless and the games still fun at least for a while and especially with the retro classes on.

My highlights are definitely

Each of this game I ve played for hours and hours, alone and with friends and I have great memories about them.

I also love the packaging back then. The manual was almost as exciting as the game itself...well not really but you get my point.


<center>The Playstation</center>

I know there is a Final Fantasy 7 remake in the making and I will probably end up playing it but I doubt it will get me as excited as the original. When I first saw the commercial and the graphic of the cutscenes I was sure I was living in the future just already today.

Tony Hawk 2 was one of my most played games probably on the PS1. This is the game were I regret that there was no internet around yet (not really) and you could not check other peoples highscores as I am still sure my score in the hangar level has to be somewhere way up there.

Tekken 3...it is Tekken and till then every Tekken was good.


I did not have a PS2 or N64. I ve played a bit when I was at friends but I never picked one up but I was not too interested in videogames at this time.

I had a Playstation 3 and X Box 360 but except Gears of War I dont remember a game which really blew my mind.

The Pc had a way bigger impact on my gaming journey then. With Starcraft 2 and a lot of Diablo 2 and 3 I wasted/enjoyed many many hours in front of the monitor.

I still play games mostly on the PC, a bit on the PS4 but 

<center> I got older</center>

<center>or</center>
 
<center>Games changed</center>

I spend less time with one game now and it does not catch me anymore as games used to. I still appreciate a game like "last of us", "Red Dead Redemption", "GTA" and many others but often I feel like I want to be done with them. 

Maybe they got too big for me especially the open world games.

What's good champ! I'm 36 too so I guess we enjoyed the same ride when it comes to Video games. I recently wrote an article of how video games helped how to learn English.  Those times will never come back mate but the games still remain to revive them. Regards champ!

I followed you up until super mario cart. 

The "new" videogames make me dizzy and I feel sick if I spend too much time watching them. 

Liked the timeline, thanks for sharing.
