The holidays are here, and we asked around for some cherished gaming memories during these festive times. Got any of your own?
Playing video games all day on Xmas, PS1 and PS2 as a kid <3
Oddly enough, I play The Grinch on PS1 every December. One of the best licensed titles of the time.
I remember getting the original Legend of Zelda as a kid. First time I laid eyes on that gold beauty I was beside myself. Years later getting the SNES was a great memory too. I miss being a kid sometimes. I hope to envoke that nostalgia with my children.
I think I have only got a game system for Christmas twice and that was the Original Xbox and PSP 1000. Both were amazing when I got them back in the day. But I think my favorite console I ever got was for a birthday and that was the Nintendo 64 with Mario Kart 64, Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2, and Army Men Sarge Heroes. But all of these were unexpected gifts that were so awesome opening up and being surprised. Also I have all of Nintendo and Sonys consoles and only the Original Xbox from Microsoft.
When i got my PS2 for Christmas, i wasnt expecting one due to low supply. Played Dynasty Warriors 2 all day!
When I was a little kid, I'm not sure how old, I remember opening my NES and getting the lightgun and ROB the Robot in it with Super Mario Brothers, Duckhunt, and Gyromite. I also got Mike Tyson's Punch Out, Zelda, and Metroid. Looking back, i'm surprised my brain didn't shoot out the top of my head through the ceiling. Little did I know that 5 of those 6 titles would go on to be the icons of the video game world. Also, years later I got my Sega Genesis with Street Fighter 2 CE and Mortal Kombat. I don't know if my excitement could have ever been topped than when I got my NES, but that was damn near close.
17 years ago, I was 11 and received my first console from my parents: The Killer Insinct SNES Bundle. Oh, I played that game all night long... ;_;
Last Christmas unlocking the infinite Rocket Launcher in Resident Evil 5. It came as a surprise because I thought I had to beat the game on Professional to get it, and yet I got it. 4 days after, I went on to score my first ever Platinum trophy
