Let's talk about our first console

Post  EggmanJunior on Thu Mar 17, 2011 10:45 am

Im interested in hearing your first experiences of gaming. What games did you play?, Who did you play with?, How far did you get?, Any nostalgic memories? etc.

Well my first games console I believe was the Sega Mega Drive, It was my uncles and he kept it at my grans house and I tried it one time (I think I was about 5 or 6). I played Sonic 1 and 2 and was instantly addicted to them. There were a few other games that I played alot but i'll get to that later. I played Sonic 2 more than Sonic 1 because I could only get past Green Hill Zone and kept dieing on Marble Hill Zone. However on Sonic 2 I could get up to the end of Casino Night Zone (4th level) which was pretty good for me. I became really good at Sonic and still play it alot on Xbox 360 Arcade. I remember I took it too my house eventually and 2 of my friends from primary school came over and I wouldnt give them a shot of it javascript:emoticonp('Twisted Evil') because I was evil lol XD.

I also had 2 helicopter games called Jungle Strike and Urban Strike. I played them both alot but the funny thing is that I didnt do the missions I just flew around and killed people lol. Thats all I remember about it to be honest.
The other games I had were Micro Machines, Lemmings and Dungeons and Dragons. Micro Machines was a fun little overhead racing game that I liked. Lemmings I also played quite a bit and Dungeons and Dragons I played a little aswell but all I remember from that was you get a ridiculous weapon that was like a pom-pom lol.

So my fist console experiences were nothing special but I have nostalgia for these games but I didnt have the Mega Drive for very long but what about you guys?

My first expereince was also on the Sega Mega Drive, I remember waking up to this very day and getting the Model 2 Mega Drive on one of my early birthdays. I was thrilled at the time because the Mega Drive Model 1 we had belonged to my brother so I never played it. However, now that I had mine the first game I played was Sonic the Hedgehog as well, I was hooked and played it for days along with other games I had such as Streets of Rage, Revenge of Shinobi and Columns(love the music to this very day still). I never got very far in Shinobi though and I still can't haha.

I used to play mainly by myself to be honest with you, that's how much of a loner I was lol. Most of my friends at the time didn't have consoles to play on at the time as many of them started on the Playstation and that didn't really get HUGE here until around about 1997 in my area.

I still own my Model 2 and I can see it peering at the bottom of the wardrobe as I type. I absoulutley love Sega and I always loved their game systems personally. The Saturn, Dreamcast were both great systems despite their short lived success especially the Dreamcast(I think it lasted about 18 months) Shocked

Sega Mega Drive man. Best console ever. Grew up with games like Sonic, Streets of Rage and Golden Axe. Second real console was the PS1. I say real console, because I had a GBC somewhere around that time aswell, good times. No idea where my PS1 went, but I play all my PS1 games on the PS2, so its not bad. Smile

I never played much of Bomberman actually, really want to get it on the Saturn as I hear that is one of the better versions of the game along with the PC Engine version of Bomberman 93.
