#50: Pong. Why start here -- because it started me. I remember putting quarters in a pong-clone machine (cocktail model with red and green paddles). My first home game was a Unisonic Tournament T-2000. And I have several pong units which work today.

I like to jump around, and would lead a fairly serene and aimless existence if it weren't for my friends always getting into trouble. I love to help out, even when it puts me at risk. I seem to make friends with people who just can't stay out of trouble.

In case you're wondering why certain major titles aren't here - Some I did not enjoy sufficiently (3D Mario, LoZ:TP, Metroid Prime series, Mass Effect, Neverwinter, Dragon's Age, Halo, etc) and some I haven't played enough to warrent inclusion (Xenoblade, The Last Story, Pandora's Tower, Fatal Frame, Silent Hill, Batman Arkham) mainly due to severe time limitations but will likely be added once I have.
