I missed on an whole era of video games. The last video game I beta tested was DOOM or QUAKE – I don’t remember which now.
After that I put I put them all aside, not even beta testing.
It wasn’t until Minecraft in 2011 that I came back in, to any of it. So I was 15 years out of the loop, the whole main part of the XBox Playstation era and the era where video games for the PC were focused on greater and greater realism.
I know of it now because I caught up on history but I didn’t live through it.
