The Future of Gaming

As an avid fan of video games, I often am amazed on how video games have evolved over time.  When I was little, the big craze was Atari and Nintendo.  Most video game enthusiasts may even remember consoles such as Vectrex or Intellivision.  I am sure if you ask your parents about video games, they will tell you about Pong or Pac Man.  My parents are the reason why I am such a video game junkie.  They had me at a very young age and didn’t have the luxury of having a babysitter.  So they would bring me on their dates.  Apparently their favorite date destination was the arcade.  I of course do not remember this but I have been told this story a time or two (too many times). Now as a child of the 80’s, I was a huge Nintendo fan.  Nintendo (NES) was the sh*t when I was growing up.  Playing games like Duck Hunt, Super Mario 1-3, Double Dribble, Excitebike, and a sh*t ton more!  Nintendo was certainly ahead of its time.  But as time goes on you start to realize that the next major system is definitely ahead of its time.  Hell, I have seen my share of gaming consoles.  Such as: Nintendo, Super Nintendo, Genesis, TurboGrafx 16, NeoGeo, Nintendo64, Sega CD, Sega Saturn, Playstation 1-3, Nintendo Wii Xbox, Xbox 360, and you get my point.  All of which when they were released boasted the best graphics and were defined as technological breakthroughs.  Until I saw something that clearly is way beyond its time.  I had overheard from a co-worker of mine about this gaming breakthrough.  So as any fan would do, I went to the internet in search of answers.  When I found them, I pretty much orgasmed in my pants.  I would like to introduce you to the future!  And its name is Project Natal (pronounced nuh-tall).  My description can’t even do this remarkable piece of technology justice.  So I thought that the logical thing to do would be to post up a YouTube video.  If Microsoft can achieve 50% of what is featured in this advertisement, I would have a new found man crush on Bill Gates and Microsoft.  Please enjoy the video!!

I give Project Natal…

  1. As sick as this thing looks, I have my doubts. Let’s hope it ends up being as cool as it’s being portrayed.

    On a related note, I remember the first time I ever used a Power Glove at your place and your sis fell and knocked down a closet door or something…lol.
