    This guy my mom was dating gave me one of his NESes with a copy of Mario 3 and The Adventures of Bayou Billy. I started playing them, and have kept playing games since.

    Being I had an elder brother who was 13 years older than I, and a sister who was 10 years older, I was fortunate enough to get into the NES and SNES games at a very young age. One of the very first games I remember playing a lot was Megaman 2, Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, and Super Metroid. Once I got older, I had a friend who had a PSX and would beat an enormous library of RPGs he would rent. I also grew up with the Game Boy, and nabbed an N64 when I was 8 with Super Mario 64 and Star Fox 64. It was awesome.

    My dad bought a Sears Video Arcade which was a re-branded Atari 2600 when I was 4. We played Skydiver together and I remember laughing maniacally when the skydiver would splat if you didn't deploy the parachute. Spiderman for the 2600 was another game I remember well.
