I've been gaming longer than I can remember. I first got my start with the Sega Genesis, and my first real video game was Sonic the Hedgehog 2. Sonic 2 was almost all I played, aside from the other Sonic games of course, but after a while, I had a bit of a collection going, Vectorman, both Power Ranger games, The Lion King/Aladdin/Toy Story (When movie games were fun! >:|), Earthworm Jim (Fun, but I never beat it. :c), and lots more I can't quite remember the names of right now. For years I was a Sega guy, only played the NES/SNES when I went over to my cousin's house, that's when I was first introduced to games like Punch-Out! and Super Mario World. The next big revelation for me would come when I received a Gameboy for my birthday.
The Gameboy helped introduce me to several games I found very fun, like Super Mario Land 1 and 2, Metroid 2 (Which at the time I could not figure out.), Kirby's Dreamland. But the biggest thing for me on the Gameboy was Pokemon Red/Blue, those two alone consumed a fair share of my childhood, not to mention the card game, and events (I got my picture taken with giant Pikachu card! But I can't find it. :( ) But I still enjoy Pokemon immensely to this day, my favorite is still Charizard. :) We'll get more into Pokemon as I touch on the Gameboy color and beyond, though. :)
The next stop on this crazy ride, is the Sony PlayStation. Here I had some really great memories, with Crash Bandicoot all the way through Warped. Spyro the Dragon was big one at the time for me, I'd play it all the time, subconsciously satisfying my impulse to collect things. Also, the original Tony Hawk's Pro Skater and the amazing soundtrack that it contained. :) Resident Evil, though horror games and me wouldn't get along very well. Tomba 1 and 2, I spent days trying to figure out the secrets of Tomba 2, as well as trying to beat that minecart mini-game. But then road splits here again.
Next starts my love affair with Nintendo and the Nintendo 64. [Still in progress]
