I've owned 5 consoles. NES, Genesis, N64, GCN, and PS1. I don't remember playing much on the NES...I remember Bubble Bobble, the Marios of course, and...Pinball...uhhh and Lolo? Was that something? That's all. I played all the Sonics on the Genesis, beat them all, loved them all. Fliptop Sonic & Knuckles anybody?
I also remember a game with a boat and you went around shooting these towers...? Rented it once. And ooo, James Pond, who didn't like him?
Anybody modestly acquainted with Mario got an N64 for the beautiful 3D goodness. LOZ: OOT, Super Smash Bros., Banjo-Kazooie, Goldeneye, Mario Kart 64, LOZ: MM, Perfect Dark, Conker's Bad Fur Day, classics all.
I got a PS1 for the purpose of playing Final Fantasy VII, which everyone raved about. Actually, I bought the PC version first, but it froze during the first Weapon battle. Damnit. So I bought a PS1. Enjoyed FFVIII, FFIX, Vagrant Story, Legend of the Dragoon (ugh), FFTactics. I bought Parasite Eve, played 15 minutes, then locked it away until last week when I shipped her off to Goozex. That game was unplayable, I'm sorry.
Then the GCN. SSBM, LOZ: WW, Animal Crossing, Pikmin...Tomorrow Never Dies (horrible), and what else...my wife liked the Sims since the Sims games wouldn't play right on our computer.
Oh yeah, I forgot about handhelds! I had a Game Gear, GBC, GBA, and DS. Game Gear I remember just one game, a Sonic game. That thing fucking chugged batteries like Rosie O'Donnell on Yoohoo. GBC, the Pokemons. After I got out of high school I moved in with my sister and didn't work for a while. So I started playing my niece's Pokemon games and...I...was...hooked. I played pretty much straight into last year when I had a meltdown. Too many pokemon. I couldn't HANDLE IT. But dunsparce4prez, yay. Blue, Red, Yellow, Gold, Silver, Crystal, Ruby, Sapphire, FireRed, LeafGreen, Emerald (hello Goozex). I'm not bothering with the latest 2...I don't want to see them.
Oh, Final Fantasy Tactics Advanced. The best portable game EVAR.
The DS? Polarium, Nintendogs, New Super Mario, Mario Kart DS, Mario 64 DS, Animal Crossing: WW. Help me.
Oh and I had an XBox briefly. True Crime: Streets of some city and of course, Halo. Big Halo fan, but it didn't last because the Box died after just 2 months. Traded it in at Gamestop for $35 in store credit...broken XBox...awesome.
I am currently playing the original Legend of Zelda on my wife's used NES, the upright cart kind, and Animal Crossing: WW when I can stomach it. I'm waiting for Goozex to really pay off, and a break in the bills so I can jump on the Wii. COME ON DESTRUCTOID. GIMME SOMETHIN'.
