Welcome to Gaia! ::

I started playing when I was really little, maybe 4? I can't really remember it except vaguely. That was with my dad on his amiga and commodore 64.

I got my own gameboy colour on my 8th birthday with pokemon red, and then I got LoZ: oracle of seasons and ages for christmas. I loved them! Saved up for a gamecube just so I could play more Zelda games! It goes on from there really.

I play games like Zelda and Pokemon still, but also things like Portal, Half Life, WoW, various Nintendo games and indie games.
When I was 3, the very first PlayStation had just come out, and my older brother was desperate for one. I didn't know what it was, but I just went along with him and was desperate as well. My mom said she'd never, ever get us any video games (although we already had several educational ones on the computer) - she thought they would rot our brains.
That school year, my brother won the PlayStation1 in a school raffle. We played the heck out of the demo CD that came with it, and then the very first ever game we got was the original Crash Bandicoot.
I was in love.
I loved Croc too, and then when I got Spyro I loved that most of all.
I continued playing the PS1 for years, then it was the GBA and then PS2, then DS, then PSP, and now I finally have a PS3.
I started playing games when I was 3, and I just never stopped.

not much of a story to tell, just started playing along with my Older brothers at the time around the age of 5-6. Usually played games like Mario, Sonic, Kirby, and Mega Man. Zelda A Link to the Past was probably the first game that I was blown away by, and made me into the Gamer I am today.

When I was about 3 years old, my dad had a SNES. He used to play it all the time, and I would watch him. The earliest game I could remember was LoZ: A link to the Past. I started to play when I was 3, but I could never get the hang of it until I was four. I remember the controller being so big, and I could never hold it properly. I was hooked since.

I now own an xbox 360 that my boyfriend bought me as a birthday present. Along with a bunch of other consoles. the xbox is the most current-to-date one I have.

Lol i got into com games from a very very early age thanks to my father. He owned a com shop that sold pc's and gameing systems and I used to play all the classic consels of the 80's bar nintendo. Even tried my hand at a few spectrum sinclair games. And the very first consel I rember playing? It's two actually. The sega master system and the atari 2600.

Man im starting to really show my age here lol

Well, It all started when I had no friends.
This is very much part of my life, since I've always been ... to myself.


A computer was my first friend.

It had wonderful games on it that both intrigued me and was subject to my curiosity.
My curiosity was sensational, but I found more friends to play with to cradle my growing interest.

It started with my brothers old NES...
Then his SEGA. Then I was bought a friend of my very own: A Gameboy.
We had intense moments & fun times. We defeated challenging foes, and celebrated great victories.

Soon I found new friends to play with...

Mr. Playstation, and Mr. N64.

Gee, they are great friends of mine.
They still are, only now I have even more friends.
I wanna hear more stories people!!! x3

Pokemon yellow. It all started there, and it will all ******** end there.
I'm not exactly 100% sure on the sequence of events here, but I'll give it a go.

As far as I can recall, my first experience with gaming was pc gaming. My dad brought home a mobile computer from work when I was 4 or 5, the first time I'd ever seen a computer. It had a black-orange monochrome screen and a few games. One in particular cast you as a five pixels tall character exploring a dangerous castle. I could barely read words in my native language at thetime, much less english, so I didn't do too well. The computer also had pac man, which was far more intuitive.

Around the time I started school, or just before, some of my friends had the NES. Ice climbers, mario, track and field, etc. I wanted a game console too, so my parents borrowed an old Intellivision from a relative. Not exactly what I was looking for... After the NES came the SNES, but it wasn't till the release of the N64 that I could afford my own console by scrimping and saving my allowance. Nowait, I did get the Gameboy as a birthday present, but I could never afford any games and you can only play megaman so many times.

Somewhere along the line I got into computer gaming. Perhaps it started with Jazz Jackrabbit...
