Experiencing a game right when it comes out, is an experience you can not create. When a game like The Last of Us comes out, everybody wants to talk about it and discuss what is happening. Maybe it is just me but I get excited when people are really excited to talk about great games when they first come out. That led me to wonder what game would I like to go back in time so I can get that full experience of when that game first released? What I mean by full experience is like I said with The Last of Us, being at that moment when everybody is playing that game and being able to play that game without knowing spoilers. I am also curious as to what other people would say regarding this question, so I thought I would ask the GI community. So, What game would you like to go back in time to play when it first released? The game does not have to be before you were born and can range from Pong to Bioshock. I will give you mine down below!
If I could go back in time and play one game when it first released I would pick, The Legend of Zelda for the NES. When I listen to people who were old enough to play this game when it first came out, I always hear them say how amazing it was to go to school and talk about the game to friends. They say that the game was just so amazing compared to anything that came out up until that point. People would put in so many hours trying to find secrets and explore the huge world of the game. There was no internet back in 1986 so you could not look up FAQs on the game, all you had for hints were your friends and maybe a strategy guide. I just would like to know what it would feel like to be a kid in 1986 when it came out. I am guessing I would have the same affection for the game as those who did experience it as a child. The Legend of Zelda was just such a big step in gaming and in my opinion no game as made as big of a mark on gaming then it did. It makes me a little sad that I never got to experience one of the great moments of video game history. The Legend of Zelda was and is an amazing game and if I could ever get the opportunity to go back and play it when it came out, there is no doubt in my mind I would!
Their is my game, so like I stated above what game would you like to go back in time to play when it first released? Thanks!
