Well as the next wave of new consoles are coming out, lets look back on how we even got into video games. For me it all started when my dad bought a PlayStation. I had never really thought much of gaming so I went into it with a blank outlook, that's when I got introduced to the Battle Arena Toshinden franchise. With it's unique colourful cast of characters and exceptionally great 3D graphics(at the time) I got sucked into it's magical fighting world. Sadly though it got tossed into the forgotten world called bargin bin, when games like Tekken and Street Fighter got really popular in the fighting genre and overshadowed it. Another game that turned me into a gamer was called "Rayman"with It's odd looking characters, weirdly themed levels, and colourful landscapes(not forgetting the strange little noises the characters made) made me fall in love with it. A bad memory though was when I was at school and my dad beat Mr. Dark and the candy level the two things I were dying to see :'(. With the announcement for Rayman Ravving Rabbids premiering on the Wii, I can only anticipate with excitement and joy.
