Personal Gaming History: Mine, yours, and ours [roundtable]
 
What was your gaming past like? What was your first console? Your first game? When did you really start getting involved in the gaming community? These are just a few questions to think about while talking about our personal gaming history.

I did an audio recording going over my gaming history, set it to pictures and game music and just uploaded it today:



I was wondering just what the history of others have been like, which is why I encouraged people to make a video response to that video.

So what has your gaming history been like?

Let's reminisce...

Demon Attack on the Tandy 1000... didn't really play it much, really.

What do you mean, "No NES for you"? Ooh, a Game Boy! Tetris, Dr. Mario, the Mario Land games, Mortal Kombat 2 (ugh), TMNT (ugh), Final Fantasy Legend II (played with an English-French dictionary nearby), Final Fantasy Adventure, Final Fantasy Legend III (I think lil' Gui liked RPGs!), Link's Awakening, Wario Land...

...finally buys a SNES 4 years after it came out. Super Metroid, Demon's Crest, Indiana Jones, Tetris Attack, Chrono Trigger, oh my!

College. "Dad, I need a computer!"... to play StarCraft, Fallout 1 & 2, Civilization, the Lucasarts Adventure games (all of them), Jedi Knight, Alpha Centauri, Freespace.

Oh sweet, I win a GBC for drinking slushies! The GBA is just around the corner, but I think I'll pick up the Oracle games, Pokémon Pinball...

...you know what? I had forgotten how good Nintendo games were. Totally picking up a GBA with Golden Sun, Advance Wars 2, Mario Kart, all that good stuff.

Man, Nintendo were really good. Eternal Darkness looks sweet, the Wavebird just came out, plus a decent-sized memory card, so I'm totally getting a Gamecube!


And I'm tired of this so I'll pretend you know my history from there, because I lived it on IGN.
