History of GTP – Part 4: My imaginary rifle scope

This cartoon is another experience that encouraged me to research about what today is known as GTP.

There was a time when I played Resident Evil 4 quite intensively; it is a great game by the way!  One day, I wanted to look at something which was far away but it was not so clear. Then for a second, I wished I had the rifle from Resident Evil 4, so I could zoom in and see clearer.

After this experience I got even more motivated to find out how common these experiences were among players, so I put the first ever post in this blog, looking for participants for the first study.
