Why did this interest you?

I decided I wanted to view these different works between the years 2004-2006 because when analyzing these works I noticed there was a plethora created within these years. I tried to do some research on why there was such a rise but could not come up with any information. As for myself I still found it to be really interesting because I was a young kid between these years interacting with different movies and video games and after looking at these works they would have been way too complex for me to try to play. Do you think the rise of technology could have been what helped these authors create the works they did between these years? I would say so. Technology was really on the rise in 2000 and it’ll only continue to become more complex allowing these authors to create even better work.
