In the year 1972, the world had changed.  Through the genius work of Ralph Henry Baer and the help of Magnavox came the Magnavox Odyssey.  That’s right, the very first home gaming console was born into the world.  Ever since then, humanity has not looked back.  Big name companies soon emerged in the forefront of gaming each with it’s own gaming consoles.  From Sony’s playstation to Microsoft’s Xbox, and Nintendo’s Entertainment System, each had their own style to offer.  The year 1996 ushered in a whole new genre of gaming via the PC.  The first ever Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game, Meridan 59, came into existence.  Although Meridan 59 came first, it wasn’t until the following year in 1997 that Ultima Online popularized the genre.  Through the internet people were able to connect, chat, and play altogether in the new frontier that is MMOs.  There was just something indescribable about being able to play an avatar that you created.  It was like being reborn again, but this time you fortunately get to choose how you look.

 Gaming took an even bigger leap later in the year 2016 when virtual reality gaming became commercialized.  Now every home can have its very own VR device.  Although it was very limited, players were able to walk in set a play space.  It wasn’t complete virtual reality as you still had to use motion controllers and body tracking, but this paved the way for gaming giant TERRAFORM.  CEO Josh E. Barnet, the soon to be founder of TERRAFORM Gaming, was mesmerized.  With his life long friend, Roy Park, they went on to create one of the biggest VR gaming company in the world.  They had only one goal in mind, and that was to make virtual reality habitable for people, hence the name Terraform.  In the year 2029, TG (TERRAFORM GAMING), announced to the world, the Dream Gear.  This device was able to put its user into a sleep like state where the player would be able to move around without the psychical body moving.  Not only that, but Dream Gear was able connect the consciousness to TG’s first and final game, Reborn Online.  This game was inspired by the MMOs Josh and Roy played as a kid.  A fantasy world in which dragons, wizards, demons, and swordsman exist.  While connected to the game, the user’s sensors are bombarded.  Realism was the number one goal TG had in mind.  Users are able to feel the ground under their feet, the wind against their face, the tiredness of walking all day, and even the rain on their skin.  The best part of the announcement was that the Dream Gear device was virtually free.  The only thing you had to really pay for was the monthly subscription, but even then it was a $100 fee.  It was so affordable that everyone and their grandma was playing it, and  then there was me, 20 year old college dropout Eric Baton, ready to be born again.
