Business Day for the Tokyo Game Show 2018 was huge. As I’ve written in previous articles, I play computer games of the PC type. I owned an Xbox many years ago, but not a PlayStation or Nintendo. Console games are right out of my league. Still, I attended it and spent a lot of time walking around, taking pictures of models and displays. And I watched a few people play games and a couple of stage events. It was a great day.

Two PC games I enjoyed looking at were on Hewlett-Packard Omen machines. The first was Dead or Alive 6, and the other was Forza Horizon 4. They looked amazing! I wanted to try them, but I didn’t have time to wait as the lines were long.

Something I loved was a display put up by a vocational school, Nihon Kogakuin (日本工学院). The students put together some virtual reality games, one of which I played! The name of it was Gray. It was a horror-survival game situated in an abandoned medical facility. Unfortunately, you had only a flashlight. And that meant if you ran into any undead in the game, you ended up as their meal, unfortunately. I thought it was brilliant and enjoyed my short turn.

I noticed 2018 had a lot of old-school 2D side-scrolling games. Some of them, including Dragon Marked for Death for the Nintendo system, looked fun. There were quite a few other games of the type there, very noticeable and pulling good crowds.

The only thing that disappointed me at Tokyo Game Show 2018 was World of Tanks/ They weren’t there! At least I didn’t see them. Hopefully, they will return one day.

Even though you have to struggle with the crowds at some points, the Tokyo Game Show is a great event. Gamers should put it on their bucket lists. If you went to this show, please let us know what you thought of it by leaving a note below.
