cool story bigbee99....
My Gaming experience story
When I was a kid, around 4 my family had the Odyssey2. Sooo I spent my baby years turning on KC Munchkin,
Monkey Shines, Freedom Fighters etc. I tried UFO a few times but didn't like it much cause I could never
escape the UFOs sharp laser beams! I remember watching my older brother and his pals play Quest for the Rings,
and bein pretty impressed by the effects, and the dragon.
Later on I managed a few 2600 games at my cousins house, Asteroids and E.T.. E.T. seemed pretty cool, but
didn't know what the point was. Tried my brothers borrowed Pitfall and thought the game was FRICKIN' AMAZING...
We then got Commodore 64, and Aliens and Last Ninja were in heavy rotation. Most friends and bros'
memories and that come from this computer... including my bro and his friends smoking and listening
to heavy metal, so loud I had to leave the room after a few mins. My friend spilled 7UP on it, while
playing Predator... but it still works to this day!
Next I really wanted NES, cause it was 1990 and it went down in price... I got it, my first system all to myself.
I played it to death, and had my two best friends playin Excitebike a lot and S-Mario Bros 1 and 2,
then I rented part 3, and we played that too. Then bro bought SNES, and we still play it today!
Mario Kart and Super Tennis etc... we were hooked on Street Fighter II for a while in the day too,
payed like over $60 dollars for it. lol The Alien 3 game was awesome, my brother friend and I,
spend summer of 1993 on it.
Recently, my brother was his friend and I, so he said.. hey Jake, get a game for me to play there,
the first box of game I looked at was 3rd party titles mostly, I just grin knowing my bro doesn't like 2600,
and put in Space Cavern....
He then started to play, "uh... what I do, just shoot upwards??" YES...I said to him "what the, wow this is thrilling" "Jake, what is the point?... (3 mins pass) "god I ask u to get me a game, get this god awful thing outta here" "LOL, my response" **Space Cavern shuts off** Later on we settled on Centipede and my bro liked it, got a nice score of 62ks, one of the few 2600 games he'll play, but he likes 7800 and thinks its the best of Atari's work, games like Food Fight, Ms Pac-man.
That's all folks!
