I took the opportunity during my drive back to Orlando to catch up on some podcasts. One of which was the Kotaku podcast regarding “gaming blind spots”–games or genres that one just hasn’t experienced, unintentionally or otherwise. I figured I may as well air out my blind spots, but first some background…
I first started playing video games in the arcades around the turn of the decade between the ’80s and ’90s. Then one day my dad brought home an NES and I was a Nintendo gamer (owning all their systems) up until the Dance Dance Revolution revolution where I was gifted a PSone for Christmas. I was surprisingly spoiled and was bought many games and also rented games regularly. Some of my friends had Genesis, so I wasn’t completely shut-out from its offerings, but all other consoles prior I haven’t had much exposure to.
Starting in the PS2-era, I was able to buy my own things. If you know me personally, you know I have a massive collection of video games. If I had to bet, my collection from this period onward (across all platforms) consists of about 1000 games, give or take. Have I played them all? Heck, no! I have an awareness of why I bought these games in the first place, though, but that doesn’t mean I’m thoroughly familiar with them. Â That’s why my “blind spot” list will likely include games I actually already own.
Now, letâ€™s get started.
