I find it so interesting how strong of friendships and communal bonds can be made from playing games with friends and strangers alike. I was wondering where everyone's origins came from in terms of gaming. For me, my first game was Altered Beast on the Sega Master system. My dad picked this up for me in the 80s when I was only 4. We kicked ass together and it was pretty graphic for a 4 year old to play. Punching and kicking zombies and beasts that exploded into pieces lol It was rereleased on the Sega Genesis (which I still own). It's still a lot of fun to play today too. So what is everyone's story here?

      • Gameboy advanced. That was the shit right there. Didn't even have its own lighting system. You had to play it at daytime or with a light source over it. Best thing ever

        • Banjo and Kazooie for the N64. I think... Either that or Twisted Metal for the PSX... Or was it Godzilla: Destroy All Monsters Melee for the G-cube? One of those three.
