Forums - Gaming Discussion - What first got you into Videogames?

It was in 1988 my Mom and Dad had bought an Atari 2600 (I know kinda late don't you think ??? :P) but I loved space invaders and played it a lot ...

mario and sonic... the good ol days no sony no microsoft dam i was like 8 years old back then



  The King Of The Iron Fist tournament

Original Super Mario Bros. It's one of my earliest memories.

Philips G7000 in 1987. I guess most games on it were ripoffs of Atari 2600 games.

Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

My first game was Super Mario Bros. on NES. But I wasn't "hardcore" until I got Sega Genesis with Streets of Rage 2 and Sonic the Hedgehog.

If your talking about console, its the snes for me.
The game would be super mario all stars special edition or something, had super mario world with it.

My uncle was a hardcore gamer even today, introduced the super nintendo when i was 8, for my birthday. To tell you the truth, i wouldn't have been a gamer if it wasn't for him. Oh and i never finished super mario world because the bullet bills scared the shit out of me when i was a kid; i always ran out of the room crying lol. Coming out of nowhere at crazy speeds, the size of skyscrapers. That evil grin still haunts me.

Since I got diagnosed with terminal cancer and none of my "friends" wanted to be around me anymore, I got Oblivion for the XBox 360. I was a bit late to the game (pun intended), but that is what got me into gaming. Now I have a Wii, but I get physically tired so quickly anymore.. I tend to stick with the XBox.
