Remembering Some Amazing First Time Feels In Gaming


Nothing Beats A Fresh Feeling Never Before Created

Video games have been out for so long now, that is it is rare to catch a new experience. Just about every genre you can imagine has already been tried and tested. The majority of gamers are actually feeling a bit of gaming fatigue due to the same sort of games being recreated every single year. It appears that every huge blockbuster is a first person shooter. While there are some amazing experiences available in some extraordinary sandboxes, we always want something new. We take a look back at some of the greatest moments in gaming. The moments that we were introduced to brand new mechanics, gameplay, or objective that blew our minds away. Some of these video game genres have gotten incredibly good in the last 30 years, but we can never forget their origins even if the graphics are hideous to our modern eyes. We can only hope that the next 30 years bring us some brand new ideas and ways to enjoy hours of video games.
