oh boy. this topic will start some drama...

I "gave up" on Nintendo in the 64 era. But it wasn't because I hated the 64. It was because I didn't have money to spend on games so I played Mario 64 and my other few games repeatedly for over a year and then just simply stopped playing it. The next year, I got my first Playstation for Christmas and played Tony Hawk and the other few games I had for it at the time. Afterward, I stopped gaming for a whole generation.

Then I saw a DS and it peaked my interest. So I technically got back into gaming because of Nintendo as well.
