I had the incredible opportunity to attend and immerse myself in the electrifying atmosphere of the Summer Game Fest Live, and it was truly an extraordinary experience. The event kicked off with an eruption of cheers from the crowd, reflecting the anticipation we all felt for the unveiling of new trailers and gameplay news. The moment Geof Keighley took the stage, it was a collective moment of anticipation fulfilled.
The show commenced with Prince of Persia, evoking a wave of excitement and nostalgia among us, especially for those of us who grew up in the 90s. Many of us had fond memories of playing that game as kids, so witnessing its resurgence was absolutely thrilling. The trailer had me on the edge of my seat, eagerly awaiting its release. Soon after, the announcement that sent the audience into a frenzy was when Ed Boone, the creator of Mortal Kombat, graced the stage to share the latest updates and provide a sneak peek of Mortal Kombat 1 gameplay. As another beloved franchise many of us gamers have cherished since childhood, any news about Mortal Kombat never fails to ignite excitement within me.
Continuing with the show, another jaw-dropping moment was Nicholas Cage's surprise appearance, revealing his involvement in an upcoming Dead by Daylight DLC where he will portray himself. The concept sounds intriguing, and I'm eagerly looking forward to playing it. Additionally, there were several other games that caught my attention throughout the night, such as Sonic Superstars, Alan Awake II, Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth, and the highly anticipated Spiderman 2 gameplay and release date announcement.
Overall, witnessing the show live provided a unique experience that surpassed simply watching it online. This was my first year attending the showcase, and I'm already eager for future events. I deeply appreciate Geoff Keighley's contributions to gaming culture and his dedication to creating unforgettable moments. Not only did I have the privilege of being there in person, but Jiedao Gaming was also one of the official Co-Streaming Partners, and DjKillzOwn Jones did an exceptional job hosting the online live stream event.
