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.
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.
