21 Years, 21 Stories #gamersonwatch

This month on United We Game, in light of E3 and all sorts of up and coming game news, we decided to focus a writing challenge on just that — game news! And below is my contribution to the cause. With E3 turning the grand old age of 21 this year, I took a look back on some of the game news stories I remembered most from the past. Some made headlines and some didn’t, but they all made their own indelible marks on my own history with gaming. #gamersonwatch

This year marks E3’s 21st anniversary, and what a road this event with humble beginnings has traveled! To celebrate how far games have come in a mere two decades, I’m running down a year-by-year list of my history with game news and events since 1995, the year of E3’s first show. (Hence the throwback to the Sega Saturn above, which gets first mention below.) The stories on my list didn’t necessarily break at E3, but rather were introduced during their given years. Keep in mind that a little cheekiness may seep in here and there, because game news is still “news” after all, and not all of it matters all the time. 🙂 So join me on this little trip through time, and be sure to let us know some of your favorite news stories of the past and present, either…
