    The very first few games that I remember sucking me into the realm of gaming for as long as I live have been Heavy Barrel, XEXYZ, the Legend of Zelda, and Final Fantasy.

    Ah, freaking Xenophobe.

    I'd probably have to say Doom, or Donald Duck on Commodore 64. My mum was a bit of a gamer, being a young mother, and she tended to get me to play games with her alot. So I found myself boogying to Commodore 64 or getting the crap scared out of me playing Doom.

    It's tough to cope with when you're like 5, or so. I was only a young chap.

    Super Mario, for the original Gameboy. I won it in some contest in school, and it was awesome. Then I went over to a friend's house and they had an N64 with Mario Kart and Goldeneye. I was hooked.

    Duckhunt and the First Mega Man for the NES.

    I remember begging my parents to buy a NES.

    I remember playing on my parents Apple II E clone. My mom programmed a game for me where when you pressed a key, a shape would pop onto the screen. Damn, that was so entertaining for a toddler. Other than that, I loved Tetris on the original Gameboy. When I saved up enough money to buy myself a NES, it was game over. Hooked for life.
