Gold was the first experience I remember from pokemon. I remember that I didn't even know how to exit the house at first it took me a few hours to figure out the carpet is the exit. So dumb lol

Awesome list. The following games would be mine in accordance to the platforms I played them on and also given that I'm listing games that I played before thirteen years of age and getting a PS2:

Sega Genesis: Sonic the Hedgehog, Golden Axe, Streets of Rage, Fatal Fury, Street Fighter, Shinobi, Pac-Man

Game Boy Color: Pokemon Blue, Pokemon Yellow, Pokemon Gold/Silver/Crystal

PC: Delta Force series, Global Operations, Zoo Tycoon, StarCraft

Playstation: Spider-Man, Spider-Man 2: Enter Electro, Spyro the Dragon series, Crash Bandicoot series, Resident Evil, Metal Gear Solid, Rainbow Six

Honorable Mention: Final Fantasy VII is the first Final Fantasy game I had ever played; however, I didn't play it until my sophmore leading to junior year of high school I believe. Had I borrowed it from my friend earlier and before high school, I would have loved it then as much as I did when I was a teenager. Everything else on this list were games I played between the ages of five to twelve. I love every single one of them.

Gameboy games like pokemon and super mario were very popular among kids but unfornetly never got to own a gameboy back when i was a kid.

PS1 was the console of my childhood and games like Final Fantasy 9(this game alone made me love gaming), Colin MCraee Rally 1/2.0, Driver 2,Crash Bandicoot 2/3,Tekken 3 and Syphon Filter 3 were some of my favorites and they still are.
