|About myself:||Here's a brief history of how I got addicted to games:|
Well, ever since I was born (1991), we'd had a NES. I've been playing that since I was two and we got a Sega Genesis shortly after that. I always used to play Contra and the Sonic the Hedgehog games (still do) I always went to my friends house to play on their SNES. I got a Gameboy for Christmas when I was around 5 and eventually had like, 7 games for it.
We'd also had a computer ever since I was born and that's how I got addicted to DOS games. I also loved most of the games for Microsoft 3.1, which by the way, that's what my computer runs on. (one of them anyway)
We moved to North Carolina in 1997 and I got a Gameboy Color which was cool. (For all of you laughing, color was awesome in a gameboy then.) I got a bunch of games for that too. Then I got a N64 for my 7th birthday. That was cool. I still play Star Wars Episode 1: Racer.
Then around 1999 or 2000, I got a PS1 and a GBA. I always played Tony Hawks Pro Skater and the Mario games. Then in 2002 or 2003 I got a PS2 and now I have a ton of games for that.
In 2004, I got really into old games and strted buying those collection sets for PS2 and GBA. I got Midway's Arcade Treasures 1 and 2 for Christmas and that's probably what started it. Then I got some more old collections for PS2.
I bought a computer for $8 at a yard sale. (Yes eight dollars) It has Win 3.1. Then I started downloading DOS games from all over then internet and I had around a hundred or so. I stopped downloading them after a while but now I'm at it again and will probably run out of floppy disks soon.
And after that is right now, where I sit here writing this instead of playing old games or reviewing them. So hopefully I'll stop within a few seconds and go do something related to games.
My Have/Want list is currently a work in progress, actually, it always will be, so it's incomplete.
