I remember playing Sonic 2 with my dad. Back then, I was not good at games, due to me being a little kid, so I was always Tails while my dad blasted through the game. ;)
Whenever we got got to the end, he would always make it seem like I was the reason we won. It also has lead to a lifelong love for Tails as a character, even though Modern Sonic games are not that great.
Addicted to watch MBC drama on Tvluux.

Don't remember which was first, but I remember Mario Bros on NES, Flappy (NOT flappy bird) on some old computer and River Raid and Pitfall on Atari.

First memory is Sokoban on my Dads 80286 PC in our livingroom in the late 80's. We always had a PC at home (as my dad worked with them) and my parents weren't too fond of gaming systems, so our first console was a Playstation which my brothers got. I remember the day when my dad came home from a business trip to the US with demo versions of Doom and Wolfenstein3D, which we were allowed to play for five minutes every day under my Dads supervision (I was 9 or ten at the time :shock: )...

Played a lot of SNES and MegaDrive games at friends places, and spent quite some time of my later youth playing N64 (Mariokart and Bomberman allnighters) while smoking weed :mrgreen:

So now I just ordered two Gameboy cases, and am waiting more or less patiently for the next round of Kites AIO boards to go on preorder... playing games on a Pi3 on the big screen.

Sometime around 1983 my dad picked up an Apple II (well compatible. A Franklin Ace 1200 which is quite an infamous machine in computing history as it was the center of a landmark case regarding reverse engineering)
And me being somewhere around 6 years old was only interested in any games it might play ;)

So Snake Byte was purchased and so began my love of computers and games which went Apple II->atari 2600->C64->C= Amiga->gameboy->PC

I remember image burning my grandmother's 50 inch projection tv by pausing Super Mario Bros on level 1-2 the day I got my first NES when it was time for dinner...she was furious! :lol:
I know my family let me play games on the old Vectrex and Colecovision systems we had but don't really remember those too well.

On my fifth birthday, my dad gave me an original Gameboy and a copy of Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins. 24 years and countless games later, those are still my strongest and most treasured gaming memories; my dad, sister and I had different save pipes, and we specialized in different worlds... My dad was the only one who could beat the Star Land boss for many years...

I've sold quite a few of my old games and systems, rebuying a few of them, but I've never sold any of my Gameboys and would never consider selling these.

I have no idea what year it would have been. I was 4 maybe so mid to late 80's. We had a 2600. It was ok pacman ect. Then one day I was out playing in the kiddie pool and I come in and see my dad setting on a chair in the middle of the living room. It Seemed kind of weird. Then when I realized he had brought home an NES and not come out to get me I was flabbergasted.... How could you not tell me!
