My Birth Year in Gaming: 1988

   0
I've been reminiscing on where I fit on the human timeline thanks to all of these cool 25th Anniversary celebrations going on for series like Mega Man, Street Fighter, and Final Fantasy lately.

Lots of people say how they feel like they were born in the wrong era, usually because the music they listen to and the attitudes they perceive about places in time (like Late 1960's San Francisco) feel more appropriate to them then the current milieu of pop culture entertainment around. I however feel like I was born in the perfect time when it comes to my personal choices in entertainment and art.



My birthdate is October 31st, 1988. Not only is this the exact day after the world was apparently supposed to end in Donnie Darko, but it's also amidst some of the most important and prolific video game and console releases ever! This was the time when video games were finally coming into their own about boy howdy did I reap the benefits in the coming years.



In Japan, the Sega Mega Drive was released two days before the day I was born! And only a week prior, Super Mario Bros. 3 was released! In Japan again but...golly! At least Super Mario Bros. 2 was released on the 9th of my birth month and shit: Mega Man 2 came out on Christmas Eve of that year! Mega fuckin Man fuckin 2!

Other notable releases during my birth year: Double Dragon II, Ghouls 'n Ghosts, Final Fantasy II, Blaster Master, Bionic Commando, Altered Beast, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde



I think that's some pretty darn cool stuff. What was happening in video games when you were pushed outta dat womb?
