So no matter where in history you started you gaming ventures, its always good to sit back and reflect. Check out and remember how far gaming has come through various the struggles and limitations. Before, you could expect console ‘life’ to be 6 - 10 years before hearing or seeing the next greatest thing.
Now companies can not wait to get the next product out. I implore you to think about this…Right now this very second…many companies are developing products that are STILL limited by the technology. So our engineers and designers are developing beyond their hardware available limits. Now patience and quality testing is definitely another topic by themselves, but the fact that we are experiencing those types of limits…with how quickly technology continues to develop…is astonishing.
Imagine where history will continue to take us and hopefully we will never forget the lessons and joys it has taught all of us.
Atari was my first console, along with the Coleco mini stand up arcade PacMan machine. Not long after I had a Tandy Color Computer to learn programming my own stuff. A friend had the C-64, we used to play the hell out of a game it had where you ran for President.
