Pixelitis Picks: The games that started it all…for us

"There’s no accounting for taste at the tender ages of four or five. But at those times when we’re learning our ABCs and our 123s, that’s when our habits and personalities really start to take shape… or some sort of Freudian nonsense like that.

Anyway, it’s those early moments in life when instead of being handed a piece of chalk or a marker, we were handed a controller and told to push a button and magical things happen on a screen. And thus started the love affair with videogames.

Back in those days, they weren’t triple A titles, but some really shiny gems that beckon nostalgia every time we think back. It’s starting to get fuzzy and really pixelated, but take a look back at some of the games that got us into gaming in this week’s Pixelitis Picks.

And don’t forget to share your stories in the comments on our page." (Culture, Duck Hunt, Pokemon Red, Retro, Sonic the Hedgehog, Super Mario Bros., Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, The Legend of Zelda)
