While My Controller Gently Weeps

GamingLives Editor-in-Chief muses over his gaming evolution, from home computer through to consoles, eventually coming full circle back to the PC thanks in part to Microsoft's insistence in pushing social media, films and TV, and focusing less on gaming itself.

"The dark days of an only-child are seldom dappled with droplets of light, and companionship is often reserved for between the hours of 9am and 3pm when enforced social interaction through communal learning is the order of the day. Once those heavy school gates drag closed behind you, however, there is no sibling to run around playing at superheroes with, and so those hours become more about quiet reflection than saving the world from evil mutated tyrants. Your own imagination quickly becomes a means for escape where anything is possible, wandering through mystical lands, surrounded by your trusted companions as you battle monsters in your quest for lost treasure." (Culture, PC, Xbox, Xbox 360)
