Hunting Video Games

Modern day graphics make it hard to believe you're not there. Games like Dangerous Hunts 2011 have set a new standard for the hunting/adventure-safari genre of video games.

The jungle is thick with humidity and tension. As you grip your rifle tighter with your sweaty palms, your wide eyes snap to the direction of the noise that shattered nature's sillence. A stick cracks; by the sound it's easily a 400 lb animal. The green canopy makes you feel caged as you hunt your pray, or is it the other way around? Only moments will soon tell.

Hunting video games have been around ever since the industry started with games on the PC such as Deer Hunter and Deer Hunter II back in the 90's. Cabela's Deer Hunt: 2004 Season made some great strides in geometry and texture filtering, giving a nice and solid feel to the world around you. Nowadays, games like Dangerous Hunts 2011 and Cabela's Big Game Hunter 2010 have taken the throne of hunting console games, bringing to the playingfield a totally dynamic environment and giving the player the freedom to hunt down and kill whatever he wants.

Deer Hunter II obviously shows its age. But back in the day, this game was the best of the best in a genre only just being birthed: open world role playing game.

The air is still, the birds go silent, the trees cease to blow, and the angel of death will be taking one life with him this day. Seconds before the massive feline lept from the ferns behind you you heard him purr with salivating confidence. You drop to your knees and whirl your rifle 180 degrees around to meet the noise. Its black claws extend from its giant paws as it lunges for you. In a blurr of time and space, you fire and wince at the same time; this is the end. Just after the shot, the 400 lb Tiger slams into you and pins you to the ground under its weight. As you struggle to grab for your knife, ready to make a hopless effort at killing the beast, you realize that the cat isn't moving at all. It is simply a limp mass, nearly suffocating you. As you struggle to push the giant feline off your body, you expose a fine hole dead in the middle of it chest.
