So where did you come from in the world of videogames? Did you grow up with an Atari, Mega Drive (Genesis) or N64? Tell me your game history so we can know a little bit more about you all and get some interesting discussion flowing. As for me, the first piece of gaming tech I had was an Amiga. I loved it, playing Cannon Fodder, Boulder Dash and Desert Strike. Most of the games were top notch, all time classics. Then I got a Mega Drive and if you read my post on my favourite games you know how much of an impact this console had on me. Aside from Sonic the other games I enjoyed on the system were Zool, Quackshot, Castle of Illusion (Mickey Mouse), Rayman, Flashback, Road Rash, James Pond and Golden Axe to name a few. Anyone heard of MegaMan, Pokemon, Metroid, Zelda or even Tetris? Well I’m sure you’re aware that most of these games had a big impact on the Gameboy and that was my first handheld console. I loved how I could take it anywhere with me, the games were fantastic and road trips never had to be boring ever again. Next up was the PC. We got one in 1996 and me and my Bro loved playing a pinball game called Tilt. Since then I have almost always had a PC and enjoyed a multitude of games from Age Of Empires to World of Warcraft. My current obsessions are UT2004 and Audiosurf. I don't love any other games on the PC more than what Valve has released. The first time I played Half Life 1 I was blown away and the first time I played Half Life 2 I was utterly stunned at how good it was (we don't go to Ravenholm anymore). After that I pretty much followed my mates on what I bought next. The first console I got in the 21st century was the GBA. TBH most of the games I liked were ports from the SNES such as all the Mario advanced games but there were a few stand out games on the GBA: Golden Sun, Mario Kart, Mario and Luigi Superstar Saga, Metroid Fusion and the Sonic Advanced games. My first 21st century console was the GameCube. At the time I bought it, people were saying there weren’t any good games for it and that it was a waste of money to own one. Here’s a list of GC games I own, have played and enjoyed, to refute that notion of thought: Eternal Darkness Sanity’s Requiem, Viewtiful Joe, Zelda the Windwaker, Zelda Twilight Princess, Metroid Prime 1 + 2, Mario Kart Double Dash, Super Smash Bros Melee and Resident Evil 4. Other games I have played include F-Zero GX and the Sonic Adventure Games. Next up was the Xbox. I bought this in 2005 and obviously got Halo 1 and 2 which I liked a lot. Not having Xbox Live at the time and playing Halo 2 online with friends was a pain but once it was working it was great! The only other game I really liked for the Xbox was Fable. Stay tuned for more….
