Super Mario World when I was  4 years old. Within 6 months I beat the game 100%.  It'll always hold a special place in my heart.

AMSTRAD PC 1512

Simon's Quest



Why don't you make like a tree and get out of here?

My father placed an NES controller (with Super Mario Bros. on the TV) in my hands when I was six weeks old for the sake of taking a funny picture. That picture is pretty much how the whole thing started.



I was born in '94. The year Kurt Cobain died and Justin Bieber was born so it wasn't a good year. I was introduced to video gaming in '97 or so that is as far as I can remember anyway. The console was the Nintendo 64 the most underrated system in my opinion. My older cousins had it and would bring it over to my grandma's house on Christmas eve or I watched them play it at their house. They mostly played professional wrestling games I can't remember their exact names. It was probably WWF Attitude or War Zone. Goldeneye 007 was another game that they played. I loved watching them play it. Good times!

I can't remember the game exactly but it was definately on my cousins Amstrad CPC 464.

You'd put a game in the tape deck and go off and have lunch whilst it loaded. Sometimes they had loading screens that revealed a picture line-by-line as it loaded... it was a simpler time :P

First game was probably one of:

  • Agent X II: The Mad Profs Back
  • Manic Miner
  • Bomb Jack
  • Spannerman
  • Out Run
  • StarQuake
  • Barbarian: The Ultimate Warrior
  • Oh Mummy!
  • Roland on the Ropes
  • International Karate
  • Olympic/Track & Field style game
  • Fruit Machine sim
  • The Trap Door

Oh the nostalgia

Due to be being born in 1996 I was first introduced to the fifth generation by my brother in the form of the Crash Bandicoot franchise, however I have seen it and Spyro decline. I soon experienced the glory of Final Fantasy on PS1, the peak of the franchise in my opinion. I then spread my pallet and became pro Nintendo/Sony, the rest can then be predicted by my games collection. 

Wow, our gaming histories are very similar. Although I first saw FF on the GBA.

My father bought me NES for birthday when I was only like 4 years old. First ever game I played on it was Lode Runner

Thanks for the video.  I hadn't heard of that game before.  It looked like it was fun back in the day.

LOL, I remember playing some of those on commodore 64. I think the olympic game was called summer games. I also had a NES at that time, playing games like the first dragon quest (dragon warrior)/zelda/mario/final fantasy.



Super Mario Bros. on the NES.
