This topic is going to date a lot of us, but I’m curious what everyone’s first gaming system was! What was your experience with it? Any fond memories to share?
My first system was the original NES, and I had all the classics: Super Mario Bros, Duck Hunt, Legend of Zelda (with the gold cartridge!!), etc. I specifically mention Zelda because I used to spend a lot of time playing Zelda II, only if I got a game over I’d have to turn the tv off really quick because I was really young and TERRIFIED of the game over screen. It looked like this:
And had a sound file of very deep, menacing laughter. It scared me real bad when I was a little kid but now I think that’s pretty funny of me.
Please share your stories about when you first started gaming!
