thanks for the kudos HG. Good to see you made your first post like you promised you would Shocked. You know all about me, I originally got into gaming on the Atari 2600 many many years ago as a kid.. All my older brothers had them. Eventually (the real reason I'm a programmer), my dad bought me a Commodore 64. I think i was 9.. hahah. It was amazing. I was hooked then.. When i was around 14-16 I even used to write music for games on the c64 which we published by game companies around the world. Loads in germany. Both DJB (XboxHQ) and I were pretty good in the old days.

anyway, nice thread, it should be interesting to see where everyone started their gaming adventures.

My mom got a mint condition NES from her boss when I was about 3 or 4. It came with a TON of games, but I remember playing Super Mario Bros and some hockey game the most. Super Mario Bros was definitely the game that got me into video gaming.

After my mom made me get rid of the NES to get a PS1, I was really into Crash Bandicoot and Spyro the Dragon.

My family had a Super Nintendo when I was younger but I didn't play so much on it. It was like once every month or something like that lol. My first "own" console I bought with my brother and that was a PS2 and I remember that we played the shit out of the game "Airblade". That was a game that really stuck with me for a long time.

But I think the game that had the biggest impact and one of the reasons why I spent so MANY hours playing videogames is probaly Call Of Duty. Even though I was a little late and my first COD was Black ops that was still the best game ever for a long time for me.

Despite my handle, my all time favorite game is Goldeneye 64 for the Nintendo 64.

Don't know if Goldeneye 64 was my first game or if the Legend of Zelda Ocarina of time was, but I had some good time with those games.

If I had more time and patience, I'd try to learn how to port goldeneye64 modded levels on my original xbox, but few people have done it.

I used always beat my much older cousins high scores in Mrs Pacman as a kid on the Atari 2600. First console I owned was the NES and I was hooked on Mario and Contra. Then Super Nintendo where I fell in love with Street Fighter and Zelda a link to the past. Bought a Sega simply for Sonic the Hedgehog. Loved Pc games too such as Wolfenstein 3d, Doom and Quake. Then came Counterstrike 1.6 which was like crack cocaine to me at the time. Went on to love Cs source and GO, but im not into this whole skins generation. Like playing H1z1 these days and Civ6 and all the Total Wars. Tired of the gaming industry tho with all this buying dlc crap. Whatever happened to buying a game and receiving 100% of it. Really loved Arcades as a kid too and games like Pacman, Mortal Kombat, Street Fighter, Tmnt, The simpsons, wwf wrestlefest e.t.c
