One of my favourite things about video games is exploration.
I love the feeling of being transported to somewhere unfamiliar and given a new world to discover. Not knowing what lies in store over that mountain in the distance, or who I’m going to meet on on my way there, pulls me in every time.
I usually credit The Secret of Monkey Island for starting my gaming adventure.
As explained in a post about my favourite character from the series, it was the first game I played on my Amiga 500 when I was nine. After being gifted the machine by my parents for Christmas and spending all morning trying to hook it up to our television, my dad had asked me what I’d wanted to do next.
