We all have our origin stories. My first videogame memories are of watching my uncle play his ColecoVision and Atari 2600 in the early '80s at my grandma's house. Q*bert, Frogger, Asteroids, Battlezone, Dig Dug, BurgerTime, Donkey Kong Jr., Yar's Revenge -- my uncle was so cool. This was followed by the NES my brothers and I got for Christmas a few years later, and playing Sega Genesis and Super Nintendo at my friends' houses in the late '80s and early '90s.

Still, I wouldn't say that I had fallen in love with the medium at such a young age. No, that didn't happen until the '90s, when my dad brought home our first family PC and I was introduced to Doom, Command & Conquer, and everything LucasArts ever made. Sure, I'd played plenty of games up to this point, but something about my brothers and I huddled in front of that old 486, experiencing adventures together really drove home what an amazing experience gaming can be, and I've been enthralled ever since.
