Prince of Persia. The original. For DOS.  None of the newer 3d fancy crap Smiley Very Happy

 

This is why 2D platformers will have a special place in my heart always.

Had a NES for a while when I was a kid, and the Mario games hooked me in, then I upgraded to a SNES where it was Mario World and Earthworm Jim all the way.

 

Then the late 90s rolled around and everyone at school started getting PlayStations. At first I wasn't convinced, but then I played Crash Bandicoot and Tomb Raider and knew I had to have one, and it escalated from there.

I make PS All-Stars History videos, yo!

As I was little my family introduced me to Street Fighter 2 on the Super Nintendo. It basically went on from there, although I now think my family regrets introducing me to games.

For me it was my grandfather who gave me an atari and intellivision with a few hundred games a few years after they came out. Then my dad saw how much we loved it and hooked us up with a launch colecovision which cemented me as a life long gamer. I've had and still have in working order pretty much all the consoles since then even the Turbografx 16 which was way under rated at the time. Btw never any of the M$Boxes. Just never got interested in them. P.L.U.R 2 all and game 4 life! 

 

 

Yes I know what your thinking I'M OLD! Lol!

Atari 2600. I was into this console for the 1st time and I think the 1st game was Pit Fall.

When my son was 8 he wanted the original PlayStation for xmas.  Of course he needed help in some of the levels on Crash and Spyro, and I found that I just couldn't put the controller down.  Smiley Tongue

 

As the years went by, we ended up getting our own separate PS1s, PS2s, and PS3s, and had our own separate game collections as well.  So now it's 12 years later and there's still no end in sight.  Smiley Happy
