While conducting my online research, I can’t help but reminisce over what gaming used to be. Ten years ago, Nintendo prevailed and if you didn’t play Pokemon, you didn’t game. There is something to be said about pulling about the ol’ NES or SNES, even the N64, and reliving child hood favourites, many which stood the test of time. And does anyone else still have the brick that was the first game boy?
Having grown up on console games, MMOGs would take some getting used to for me to play them on a regular basis. Yes, the idea of a global community of players to interact with is astounding, but I can get the same enjoyment from playing Super Smash Bros. with a group of close friends…in the same room.
At the end of the day, I am glad to have tried MMOs via this class, but I can’t say for certain which I’ll stick with in the long run. All I know is I have a copy of Super Mario All Stars for Wii which will be replacing my current time in World of Warcraft.
