All-Time Fav Game: SOCOM 2
Currently Playing: Overwatch
I remember it just like yesterday, pushing in my first cartridge of Super Mario for NES and hearing that opening song (BA DA BA BA DA BA DA). That was the moment video games came into my life.
Sitting in my dad’s basement playing on the old fashioned floor TV, drinking Pepsi, eating pizza pops and staying up way past my bedtime trying to save Princess Daisy. Figuring out different methods of beating each level one by one completely transformed me into a young new gamer.
Video games latched on and had me hooked right then and there.
Now if you’re like me and grew up in the 90s, you know that this was a crucial time for the evolution of video games. Which meant my addiction grew enormously. There was a specific year that stands out amongst the rest, and that is the year of 1995. This was the year that the first Sony Playstation hit the market. And oh boy… I couldn’t of been more excited.
Words cannot describe how bad I wanted this perfect badass futuristic 3D graphics gaming machine. I was losing my fucking mind thinking about it day in and day out.
When I finally got one that Christmas, my life was complete at that very moment…(well what else could a 6 year old need in life right?)
Twisted Metal, Tomb Raider, Resident Evil, Final Fantasy 7, Tony Hawks Pro Skater! How could it get better than this? The miraculous worlds that these games brought me into was like nothing I’d experienced before.
Well… it did get better… and more addictive… and more competitive. Which brings me to the year 2003. This was also a time for some major transitioning…and I’m not talking about puberty. I’m talking about ONLINE GAMING! The first time I ever got the pleasure of an online game was with Socom 2 US Navy Seals for the PS2. Online gaming was just becoming the new way to game at this time, and it was intense…I mean intense…not to mention it was INTENSE.
I would find myself pulling all nighters playing with my closest friends as we strategized together, yelled at one another, killed each other and cried together…(from laughter of course). This new way of playing video games was something I had never experienced before. These days online gaming has become a worldwide language that everyone can speak and express themselves through the power of a gaming console or computer.
20 years later I find that exact same excitement and passion that I always have since day 1 in my dad’s basement. For me video games has shaped who I am to this day which is why Streamplay was created for individuals who share the same passion.
