By: Giovanni Pacheco Hey everyone, Gio here. If there's one thing I know is this; Being a gamer parent can be tough! No one gives you a brochure on your way out of the hospital after the miracle of birth, trust me I asked. Fret not gamers, for I have assembled a short list of five tips for being a successful and responsible gamer parent. Enjoy!
By Gio Pacheco I have been a huge fan of video games for as long as I can remember. Growing up in Brooklyn, New York I used to think that video games I played back in the late 90’s were the most amazing and impressive things ever. However, compared to the games we play today, those aren’t in the same league. It took a while for me to realize that video games follow a natural evolution in the same ways television and movies do. One thing is for sure, no matter how much I used to play video games I always found the need to go outside and play with my friends. I don’t often see kids outside playing anymore…like ever.
By @Manny_The_Great The wasteland was never done like this before. Fallout 3 set the bar for open world games when these were starting up. Join me as I reminisce on such a masterpiece of a game which provided many days of much needed entertainment.
By @Manny_The_Great Another year goes by and Sony has made the PlayStation experience an annual event for all gamers to look forward to. With so many titles scheduled for 2016 and Sony targeting the VR market, on could only make an educated guess that we would see some VR announcements in this year's PlayStation experience event. This year's event took place in San Francisco, and regretfully enough I was unable to go given the high volume of work that needs to be completed at the end of the year. That being said I was still able to watch the live stream online (thanks IGN).
Since I can remember, video games have been giving players a certain degree of choice. Such choices range from the simplistic naming of a character in the Final Fantasy games to the branching paths in Metroid. Off the top of my head I can distinctly remember being thrilled that NES games like The Legend of Zelda and Mega Man allowed me to choose a unique path. Rather than scrolling my way to the right like a typical NES era Mario game, experiences such as Zelda and Mega Man allowed me to tackle the game how I saw fit. For the most part.
