And, as gamers, we just don’t play what’s out there. We also like the hype that comes with the game years before its release. We go to youtube and watch these bombastic reveals in the biggest game conventions and drool. So it’s fair to say that we were always pining to go to one and experience the excitement.

So after weekends of marathon gaming sessions and discussions on what content we would like to write about, it was an easy decision for us. As gamers, we’ve got to pack our bags and go to ground-zero of games: that’s the Tokyo Game Show (TGS).

Aside from watching all the big reveals and swooning over the upcoming games we’ve come to know those game conventions also showcase the latest in gaming hardware. Here’s a list of what we’re expecting in the TGS this September 21-25.

Games in the show will not only focus on the mainstream gamers as the main market but will elevate the consciousness of games as brain training tools.

Allan Abaca is an avid gamer through and through. Virtually, he is locked-in with his PS4 almost daily and has just introduced the awesomeness of gaming to his two sons.

Next in his sights is PC gaming. The platform which he nows considering going back to after a two decade hiatus.

Oh, and let's not forget the Nintendo Switch...
