    Probably common for many people to receive a console at a birthday or some other event during the year.

    Amiga 500 my brother had (that was later mine when he got the PC) I suppose, Superfrog, The Settlers, Pinky, Theme Park and others. Also "european" NES called Pegasus and classic games like Super Mario Bros and Battle City.

    I honestly can't remember, most of my childhood is foggy and vague except for occasional moments of clarity.

    A shared Christmas present with my brother. I will assume this was the late 70s.

    The game "Simon" was the must have electronic game that year so Mom got us "Merlin". It was 6 in 1 computer game thing with a "Simon Alike", 21s, tic-tac-toe, "mastermind alike"

    It ATE double A batteries like they were rice crispy kernals but the seed was sown. Playing alone in the dark with a hard piece of plastic...

    Real love came with time, as we are used to say it for humans. my love for vodeo games is the same, from just a "time passing by", I'm still in it like never before. More the time passed by and the more I love video games. Now I can hardmod a console, repair computer, know much and better informatics, and I am proud of myself. I found a community within' video games, with much more kind than any other I found.
