Need For Speed – The Return of the Classic
My memories are still fresh. And I can recall that back in 1994 when I bought my first PC, the only thing I wanted to do is to-go-to-the moon and back. With Netscape Navigator as my ultimate browser and Web Crawler search engine I could do anything. However, there’s certainly been a dearth of information and there was no YouTube.
The only way to pass the time was to play games earlier recorded on the floppy diskette and soon they were made available on the CD-ROM. But the word addiction was still far away and there was nothing acquire indulgence. Then came like a fresh of breath air was the game called Need For Speed. A totally immersive experience for all the motoring aficionados. For a kid in late teens, it was an eyeball flattening experience I was staying up all night long. Running away from cop squad cars, driving licensed Corvettes and Lamborghinis on the highways, thrashing every other thing so irresponsibly! How can I forget the Porsche Carrera racing through scenic mountain ranges of the Pyrenees. A spontaneous shift into the indulgence and addiction, both were the same entwined experience. I must add here, the game Need for Speed it was quite a challenge for the early Intel Pentium processors. I had to spend a countless amount of money to get the proper NVIDIA graphic card to meet the standards of the Need for Speed gaming experience.

That was my side of the story, though before I end, something I would like to share (a chance to thanks) that on one birthday, probably my 29th my wife gifted me the gaming steering wheel to play the then newly launched Need For Speed Underground. Today, there’s no need to worry about as there are gaming console like Sony’s PlayStation and Microsoft’s Xbox available to perform the very task to deliver the realistic experience. What’s your story, care to share, one?
