I have been a gamer for quite a while now. I remember the first gaming system I had was a keyboard thing that plugged into a cassette tape player thing that plugged into the TV. It looked something like this piece of garbage.
It was fun. After that, I remember all my friends getting the new raddest gaming system, and me sitting in my living room with my cassette tapes. So of course I went to their houses and played a lot of Beastmaster and Mario Bros while eating excessive amounts of sugar. Anyway, my gaming progressed from nintendo and sega consoles to PC gaming. THE ULTIMATE GAMING EXPERIENCE. I think one of the first games I played on my own PC gaming system was Redneck Dear Hunter and maaaaaaaaaan was it ever awful. Shortly after, along came one of the greatest games ever made, Half-life. This game, and for the most part, all of the spinoffs and sequels have been my rock of gaming. The Half-life world that the developer, Valve, has created is so vast and immersive and simply amazing. I love it. So when I see things like the following, and I am sure others who grew up on Half-life get the same feeling, I get an overwhelming sense of elation.
