Gaming Decisions

Just so you know, it’s been a long time since I’ve made the time to post here. No excuses, just busy with other things.

Now onto this year’s post ∇

I’ve been playing video games for a while. I’m not into it so much that I’ve got it scheduled into my daily activity, but I’ll pick up a controller once in a while. Back in my day, playing video games started with the arcade craze, and then came the home consoles. I remember those days fondly. But now, the consoles have advanced so far that you get immersed into the games. VR is the latest thing, though still in its infancy, and it’s just going to get bigger.

I’ve been toying with buying a new console. I’ve been a Nintendo guy for decades and find it hard to give up on that world, but the caliber of games coming out for Playstation and XBox consoles are amazing. The new ones even catering to the newer 4K screens. All of that makes my decision so much more difficult. I’ve been reading up on all of the pros and cons that came out of E3 this year and what I read has helped a little, but very little.

I might forgo the switch to a different system and stick with what I know and that is that Nintendo has not disappointed me with entertaining choices. Plus, the Switch is portable. I wouldn’t need to be tied down to a sofa or chair to play it. I could take it anywhere. So I think I’ve made my decision and will be getting a Nintendo Switch this fall, along with some of the new games coming out.

Now only if they would give us some online content or a way to play the old games on the Switch.

About RickBrookins

I'm Rick, just as the name above says. I have always look up to the night sky and wondered what it would be like to be in a galaxy like the one in Star Wars. Well, now I have a taste of that through roleplaying in SWEF. I had joined MagForce in March of 1998, and became Team Leader, with the help of that team's members, by August of the same year. I started a new team, Venture Force in November, 1999. Venture Force was my very first creation in SWEF, but closed down after a couple years due to lack of players. My recent creation is Pinnacle Inc., which is doing very well. In my life away from SWEF, I am a design drafter, and am currently working for a company which makes and sells high-end built-in refrigeration products.
