Tokyo Game Show 2018

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 this year that there seemed to be a lot of the 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 this year was World of Tanks/Wargaming.net.  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.
