: I just joined up to the site so please be easy on your fellow gaming brethren
So , here we are only a few months away from the release of PS4 and Xbox ONE, the hype machines for both company's are on full power as more and more information is released day by day , but i want to take a look back at where it all began for me or you, what was your first console , im talking about the moment you laid your eyes it you knew you HAD! to have it no matter what , for me it was the original Xbox , i had a super Nintendo before that and wanted the PS2 but then i saw halo and sweet Jesus i was blow away , now keep in mind i was only 9 at the time so i would of been amazed by pretty much anything, but this new type of game was mesmerizing to me so i knew that i had to have this new console and its awesome looking game Halo: Combat Evolved.
I had to think of ways to convince my parents to get me this new console, it was march in 2002 so Christmas and my birthday have passed, i needed the perfect excuse and i found one, at the time my family was moving house and at the same time my Super Nintendo broke so i was left without a gaming device and my old friends, so i started the long battle , begging and nagging my parents saying how i don't have any friends in this new neighbourhood and i don't have anything to entertain me in the house , and finally in the summer of 2002 they caved and got me Xbox, halo and PGR , and boy was i exited waiting all day for my dad to come back home but when he did finally arrive he arrived with bad news, there was a delay of shipment and i had to wait a whole week , and let me tell you that was single handedly the longest week of my entire childhood most nights i couldn't sleep because i was so exited to get my hands on it and play halo , finally the day had arrived my dad brought me my Xbox and its pretty game Halo , i couldn't control my self so i started it up and didnt stop playing until the credits rolled , now i know what your thinking " hey you said you were 9 how did you play trough halo in one sitting " pure dedication that's how, i simply could not stop , my body would not let me i had to finish this amazing game no matter what i did not come out of my room for 10 hours straight , and after that as they say the rest is history , i have played every halo game that has come out simply because i wanted to know more about the story and the games universe.
Lets speed things up to present day and here we are again with new consoles on the horizon, but this time master chief and me will be parting ways as i will be getting a PlayStation 4 until the eventual price drop of the Xbox ONE , from 2002 until 2009 i was a hardcore Xbox fan i mean i would come up with any excuse how the PS3 sucked and how there was no Private Chat or that the games sucked , but in reality the games didn't suck i had a blast with Nathan Drake and his adventures and fighting the helghast was one of my favourite FPS experiences but the pinnacle for me at least was The last of us , this was like halo all over again i had to play this game no matter what and i was once again mesmerized by this beautiful looking game and once again i did not stop playing until the credits had rolled.
That is the reason i will be buying the Playstation 4 on launch day because i am waiting to see where Naughty dog, Gorilla Games, Sucker Punch and Santa Monica and the many more development studios take me next.
I hope you enjoyed reading and if you have any criticism let me know im always looking to improve.
