Gods of Gaming - 3

In the mid-90s, after the world of gaming had got the taste of games like Quake, Doom, Duke, Heretic and Prince of Persia, and then things petered out. After such colossal hits, there were a number of has-beens, wannabes and half-baked concepts, which didn’t really interest the gaming community. However, there were the chosen few in the new millennium, which brought computer games the past glory it had.

Tomb Raider: The Tomb Raider series had given the gaming industry a number of firsts. It had the first major female action hero, it was the first major Third Person Shooter game, and it was the first fictional female action hero who saw a movie being made on her in her lifetime. The Tomb Raider had rich eccentric Lara Croft as an adventurer and tomb raider. In the course of her exciting professional life, she would have to battle henchmen, spirits, ghosts and sometimes even armies.

The Sims: This game was possibly the first strategy game many new gamers had played. While other games gave players a chance to get out of their life, Sims did the opposite – they made them live a virtual life. Sims had players select a character and then look after them and their daily lives. The characters would have friends, family, a job, and finally a profession. The Sims had a cult following. It must also be one of the few games which have as many as five to six expansion packs – meaning one had to buy the original game, so that the expansion pack would work.
