Aaamaazing: That First Night With The New Generation

It was one late night in 2002 and much more younger, charming version of myself was at home waiting impatiently for his mother to come back home. It was starting to get late for the young boy, his eyes getting weary as time ticked by. I had school tomorrow but I didn�t care, I had to experience it as soon as I could. 30 minutes later, who would have thought I would be rubbing my eyes vigorously, have my jaw unhinged with my chin touching the floor, managing only to say �It�s Aaamaazing...� This was the faithful day I got my PS2, catching up with the current generation and it is here I found myself truly captivated and mystified, thinking to myself �It couldn�t get any better than this.�

I didn�t feel this though when I got a PS3. Maybe being older it was more difficult to amaze me at first glance. Maybe the jump from generation to generation just wasn�t the same. Sure later on I learned to appreciate and love my PS3 more so than I ever did for my PS2 but that feeling I got that one fateful night when a little black machine entered my life, I never experienced it again.

A week later I had completed the game. Twice. And I still wanted more. I looked for all the secrets the game had in store for me. I had grown to love every character and their quirks. Find all the secret cars and learn the map of the world better then my own neighbourhood. I couldn�t get enough of the game. It was at this point that I began thinking where games could eventually go. How fluid can the gameplay get? How gripping will the story telling become in games? Will we ever reach the pinnacle where story, gameplay and graphics mesh perfectly together to create the best experience possible? At this brief moment on a cool winter night, I thought that we definitely could get there and it was only a matter of time. I was Aaamaazed.

About Zwooooshone of us since 1:41 AM on 02.08.2010

Well hey there, the name is Zwoooosh but of the internet, I'm generally called Nathan. It sounds a bit more normal I suppose. Anyway, I'm a 17 year old kid/manchild from Melbourne, Australia and I'm a gamer. I got into gaming as a young kid when my parents bought me a PS1 for Christmas all those years ago. God I remember playing the shit out of that. Any who I then moved on to the PS2 in 2002 and then onto my now current console, the PS3.

I'm into music and movies and am currently being self taught in visual effects as my friends and myself are heavily into film making ourselves. But you know when you have a dream and that dream then goes and bangs every idea you've ever had and then your just left with a bunch of idiotic thoughts and a lousy hangover? Yeah me either, but essentially we have so many projects under way, I don't know if we'll ever finish one of them. But enough about that, back to the games yeah?

A few of my favorite games:
The Uncharted series
Assassin's Creed series
Red Dead Redemption
Fallout 3/NV
Dead Space 2
Mass Effect 2
InFamous 2


Oh hey! I write for Gamingbus now and guess what? We're hiring. If you are at interested, I implore you to take a gander right over here. I promise it won't hurt and you'll grow to love that probe like feeling. Journalism!
