Game Tangents get's to know their editors by asking them, What 10 games define your childhood? Here's Nick's answers
this were pretty much the games i played as a child 1 pokemon blue 2 pokemon red 3 pokemon yellow 4 pokemon gold 5 pokemon ruby 6 pokemon emerald and now im waiting for pokemon x y
I have played every generation and every game except for Crystal unfortunately. I still love Gold/Silver to this day.
Too many games to list. A lot of N64/NES/SNES/Sega Genesis stuff though.
Yeah Pokemon ate up a lot of my childhood. So many dead batteries.....
Never expected to go to kanto in gold/silver, made the game way more epic!
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
for me it would probably be.... Streets of Rage Sonic the Hedgehog Donkey Kong Country Super Mario All Stars Pokemon Blue Golden Eye 007 The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time Diddy Kong Racing Super Mario 64 Crash Bandicoot Honorable Mentions... Spyro Twisted Metal
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.
