So I cracked open crackdown (hehh) for the first time today in a while and a shitload of memories came rushing back from when this game came out, I would've been about 11 or 12 and at this age this game was the shit, I have such immense nostalgia for it.
Then I got thinking about how the year surrounding this game's release -sort of late 2006 to late 2007- were probably the best times I've ever had with videogames and I don't think they'll ever be beaten. Lost Planet was the first time I ever played a game online and that was fuckin mindblowing at the time, I made a few great friends playing Rainbow Six Vegas, Mass Effect was unbelievable to my young mind and playing Halo 3 custom games were straight up the most fun I've ever had/will have with a videogame. So enjoyable.
I have really vivid memories of what my life was like at this point, even down to the smell of the summer air coming in through the open window's in my house. I have similar feelings for the time I first started playing in WoW in early 2009 but its not quite as strong.
So I guess im curious what period of gaming/your life did you have a similar experience, if any?????? Mostly as it relates to gaming but also any other details you remember from that time particularly vividly.
