GameSpy writes: "As I recall my personal history with videogames, everything leads back to Christmas 1988. I received a NES as a gift from my reluctant mother. She endured the Super Mario Bros. theme until it was stuck in her head. After a certain point, I remember her telling me, "nothing's going to come out of you playing those games all the time." After nearly four years at GameSpy and thousands of hours and (and dollars) sunk into gaming, I've come to a realization: She was right all along."
