|WE'RE SO HARDCORE!!!|
I've had a gaming console as far back as I can remember, some of my earliest memories are of my Dad mapping out the entireity of Zebes on graph paper while playing Metroid and then, when we got a Super Nintendo I fondly remember playing Secret of Mana with my brother and eating fresh coconut.
The game that truly made me a gamer, however, was Chrono Trigger. There's no way to really explain it other than the fact that it blew me away. It was amazing, and it was the first game I ever beat before my brother, so it has a really special place in my heart. From that game forward, I was truly a gamer.
|No seriously, the battle music is playing in my head right now.|
|I am not using obscure games to be hipster.|
That's what my scarf and glasses are for.
Best of all, no matter how old the game is, a PC will still run it, one way or another. There's no new kind of CDs, or you need some kind of cartridge slot, or anything. If I wanted to play Lighthouse, a game from 1996, I could. Oh, it would probably take some time to set up my machine so that it was compatible, but it's possible. Let's see you try to get Joe and Mac for the Super Nintendo to work on the Playstation 3
|A guy will probably have to|
play this before even bothering
to propose marriage.
|Okay, now I'm being hipster|
|It's standard that they install these in|
all of their fans.
That's not to say I only play totally obscure games. I am a fan of Mario, the Fallout series, Deus Ex. Heck, ask me about Valve. If Gabe Newell knocked on my door and told me Valve owned my soul through contractual obligation, I'd believe him.
To me, one of the best ways to spend my time is to sit down with a good game. Even if I'm not playing I love to talk about a good game or express my fandom in some real world way (which you'll get to hear about later.)
