Racing my Dad in Atari 2600's Grand Prix.

Playing my Dad in a nightly game of Hockey for the NES. I never had the fat guy on my team.

A promise from my parents that they'd buy me a Genesis (brand new at the time) if I saved up half the money, and realizing just how much yard work you'd have to do to save up $75. And then playing Sonic for seven days straight after I finally got it.

Apparently I need to give Pops a ring tonight and reminisce.

Oh I tell a lie about my first gaming experience. It wasn't our first PC at all. I remember getting a Sega Game Gear! I think I got it Christmas 1993 or 94. Absolutely amazing piece of kit at the time, and having a portable games console at that time made you extra cool round where I lived.



Had some pretty cool games for it as well. Some not so cool as well, but I was only 5-6 at the time!

The Jungle Book
Cool Spot
5 in 1 Fun Pack (Tennis, Football/Soccer, Rallying, Tetris and 1 I can't remember)
Sonic The Hedgehog 2
Mickey's Ultimate Challenge
Ayrton Senna's Super Monaco Grand Prix II (My favourite game)

And yes, I still got it Not played it in years, but have no intention of selling it for a while.

I know he posted about it somewhere else. Basically it is because it ate up a ton of his time, he couldn't not be on, and he was the Commish for the Ultimate ISH All-Time Season which took up more time. He is an extremely conscientious student and wasn't getting much homework done because of ISH, I don't know that his grades were slipping, but that his what he was afraid of.

I remember playing Mario Bros and Original Zelda on NES when I was about 3 or 4. Unfortunately, I was too young to grab the concept of running and jump timing in Mario, and I would just go exploring and get myself stuck somewhere in Zelda. But being 3 or 4, I didn't know any better, so it's pretty cool when I played those 2 games about 2 years ago and was able to beat the game. I remember getting SNES and I watched my Bro beat Mario World... That was the first time I've ever seen a video game get beaten and it eventually became the first video game I've ever beaten. I started to cry after beating Bowser in that clown balloon or whatever you call it for the first time. I also remember kicking the crap out of Doom when it first came out.

I remember how happy I was when I got a N64 for my birthday. I also got Diddy Kong Racing, NBA Courtside 2, and Goldeneye. Goldeneye is one of my all time favorites. I became really good at that game. I almost got every single cheat(still had a hard time with the Facility cheat). I was able to beat Aztec on 00 Agent.

It took me about a year after it came out to finally get a PS2. Played my all time favorite game, GTA SA(Can't wait till 4).

Finally got myself a 360 about 2 months ago. Now, I play the sh*t out of Guitar Hero 3 and eventually, GTA4. It's crazy how video game technology developed. You went fromsomething so simple like pong, to something as complex as CoD4, GTA4, even GH3... Who knew I would be having so much fun with a plastic guitar with 5 fret buttons?

Agreed, it was the first game I was ever hooked on. I used to yelp with happiness everytime I passed Senna
