Gaming Through the Ages[edit | edit source]In late 2015 Philip created the Gaming Through the Ages series where he plays console games dating from 1975 onwards into the present day and discusses the evolution of gaming graphics, the years progress in each episode. Currently, Phase 1 has been completed where a game from every year has been played through, now the series is in Phase 2 where the cycle is repeated with different games for the individual years.
'Over the last few decades, games have evolved in both scope and graphics. It's time to have a look back at the history of games in chronological order!
'Our first episode will start back in 1975 with a random game played on a random computer or console. Each episode from there will take us to the next year (e.g. 1976, 1977, 1978 etc...) until we reach modern times. Be sure to comment on what game to try next ensuring that you list a game made one year after the one just played.'
'Once we reach modern times (e.g. 2016) we will jump back to 1975 and start again playing a different group of games. I hope you all have fun joining me as we explore the history of video games!'
'Please note: Episodes will be short (30 minutes max). This series will briefly explore a range of games, not play them from start to finish however for really exciting games there may be Part 1/Part 2 so we can explore them a little further.
