You’re a bona fide gamer are you not? Nothing will separate you from your console and games of choice. Not bread and cheese, nor the lustful callings of a woman. In fact, you’d cuss vile words at anyone who’d try to steal you joy away by messing with your gaming space. It’s like water to your throat and air to your nose, vision to your eyes and health to your bones.
Yes, gaming makes up at least quarter to half of your life, but can you remember in earnest when and how it all began? Can you sincerely say you know the moment you got hooked? Because that’s what we’ll examine in a nostalgic manner over the weekend: how your gaming journey commenced.
It’s the weekend, friends, what else is new?
Here’s how it happened to me:
It was a Gameboy, the first ones when the graphics were green…..yeah, that’s the only color it rendered. The game was Super Mario Bros, and I’d borrowed the thing from a classmate. And there it began. I got into a lot of trouble for playing all through class –es… And ended up never returning the handheld to the friend I borrowed it from. “It got lost,” I told him.
From there, I passed through the Game Gear from Sega, and every other gaming system since. My first home console was an Atari Jaguar. The games I owned for the system were Iron Soldier and Cybermoth. The former was awesome while the latter was the most frustrating game I’d ever played.
From there, PSone came to life, and long story short, I haven’t stopped gaming since.
As for the weekend, I’ll be Christmas shopping with my lady, as we try and change the entire look of our home… Just bought a brand new 32″ Sony Bravia so we’re looking for ways to compliment it.
Christmas tree and all.
That’s about it.
You? Remember to tell us how your gaming journey started.
Enjoy the weekend.
