I've been playing games for as long as I can remember. Even when I think back to my first memories, NES was there.

I got into video games when my mom & dad bought me the first NES.  I was so hooked.  Then after new systems came out, I started to continue on gaming.  Now (in the present), I still game on with my Xbox, PS2 and my PC.

My dad did.

 

We had pong in my basement, a real pong machine.

Then we got a Magnavox Odyssey which was so cool.  I used to LOVE sticking the game's graphics on the screen (google it youngsters :smileytongue:)....i was sold.

 

Still gaming 30+ years later :smileyvery-happy:

My older brother. He played lot of videogames as a kid (and still does), so he got me into them too. I still remember having the disc version of Final Fantasy 7 on PC. My brother was near the end of the game and I ruined his save somehow. :smileyvery-happy:

 

Other games I remember he/I played (still do! I mean, they're still awesome) were Thief: The Dark Project (I never played any further after the first mission. Those goddamn ZOMBIES! D: ), Heroes of Might and Magic 2, Little Big Adventure 2 (Maybe the first one too), Super Mario Bros, Fallout 2 (another game I STILL play a lot), Jagged Alliance 2, and all kinds of (S)NES games, like Zelda, Final Fantasies, Mega Man, etc.

I lived in a really small town when I was little, and the only entertainment was a bar connected to a store. My grandparents also lived in the area and sometimes  they would watch me and take me to the bar where there was a shuffle bowling machine. I was 5, and got hooked. From that time, as I was able to play, I leared Pachinko, and Pin ball and other early electronic games in arcades. Then  when I was old enough I bought consoles. I stick mainly with Playstation products now, though I have owned and played others too( I played X-box, never owned it though,lol).


Thanks Asuka424 for the Signature

My neighbor had an NES, I went over there with my sister(my big sister, the neighbor was her friend)and we all played Mario Bros and this weird game with Chester Cheetah riding on a jet ski.. Anyway, from that day forward, I fell in love with video games, and it just never went away I guess.

I'd say my mom early on, then my father.

Me and my mom used to play Mario and Duck Hunt on whatever system that was on. Then when I was 5, for Christmas, I got a GameBoy.

On my birthday, in July (turned 6), I got a PS1. My first games were Lilo and Stich and Monsters Inc.. My mom played Lilo and Stitch more than I did.

When I turned 8, I got a PS2. My first game was Lord of The Rings. I played this alone. I was a HUGE Star Wars fan when I was young, so as soon as I saw Battlefront in a store, I had to have it. My father saw me playing it a few days after I got it, and he wanted to play. We were then the ultimate team. We played split screen almost every day until I was 12. The way Battlefront plays, I'm still shocked my father doesn't play PS3 or any online games.

When I was 14, as an early Christmas present, I got a PS3. My first game was Uncharted 2. I beat it at least 6 times in the first two months. That January, I convinced my parents to let me play online.

I'm now 16 and I still play the PS3, and I am saving money for the PS4.

That, is my story.
