the middle of history computer games

the middle history of computer games

1980s was massive period of time for gaming history this is when games slowly started to get more money behind them also the RISE OF NINTENDO gumpei yokoi invented the game virtual boy one my favourite hand held consoles which since then i got an emulator for my PC so i could play Pokemon he also worked famicom on the metroid series which was for me a massive influence in designs and has now turned into a huge game that for me peaked when prim got onto smash brother's but i always love metroid prime also one of the first games where you could play first and third person.
also single player games became huge especially first person shooter games which developed to big multiplayer fps like doom in 1993 which is one of the biggest games ever  but online multiplayer games dint come till the 1990 even tho they had the technology to do in the 1980s on something like a commodor 64 i think its because when games were still on the way up they were single player games that u would properly sit on your own and play in your own homes compared 2 big machines in arcades youed play with your Friends.
for me what really made the golden age (1980) special was games like legend of Zelda and the ocarina of time and the first castlevani with have both turned into huge games i especially like the newest castlvani graphic improved by 1000 percent in only 20 to 30 years also of course they finally made resident evil and metal gear which are both massively influences on several games i can still see
amazing games my favourite being 7an 8 and 9 final fansty is different because i think where as i liked to see more mgs to carry on the storyline where i wish they'd stop realising final fansty because everything they do is the same for me anyways.
the 1990s was the invaiton video gaming It was a the big transition from raster graphics to 3D graphics and sprouted lots of diffrent genres like real time strages,mmo and more
the 1990s was also a big decade for epic megagames now epic games who have recently realside one of my favorite serous and one of the most inotive and well built seris gears of war
also the sega mega drive the did very well and lifted of some massive charters like sonic and mario very diffrent style of games to what epic produce but both work well for ive always liked more serius games persnaly even when i was younger i liked stuff like mortal combat even thow my mother dint know i had beacuse it was to violent
a big seller also was alone in the dark an orignal horror game  that set the standars for alot of other horrors which changed the way alot games built horror games

1996 id software allowed them to build QUAKE which was massive for me and online multiplayer game simliar to things like halo but darker in highschoool nearlyy every lesson would end in everyone playing quake 1 online in the class but the lab computers wouldent hold it so everyone would redowload in every lesson the game was really interesting i think it was almost as bigger influence on games as doom for me u can really see how game like unreal tournament and gears of war have been influenced by these games by the massive gun and futuristic elements and and big beefy characters .
for me games that have been my biggest influence to my own work were in the 80s even thought i wasn't born then they still made a big impact on what kind of things i enjoy
