What sort of games were you in to when you first discovered gaming? For me the first games console I ever owned was the sega megadrive (showing my age here hey?) and I loved Alex Kidd – I look back at it now and realise how simple and basic it was but at the time it was the absolute height of cutting edge. I first really got in to gaming with the SNES – which I still own and play sometimes even now and my all time favourite console remains the N64, I guess I am a Nintendo fangirl as I have always preferred their consoles and games over others. Though I do love my XBOX 360 with Kinect for the fitness games and you can’t beat a bit of Sonic the Hedgehog.
I think that sonic adventure was probably the first game I ever properly fell in love with – rushing back from school so that I could get on it, falling out with my siblings when I had to share with them, feeling a massive sense of accomplishment when I got passed end of level bad guys and completed tasks. Good times.
I think for old times sake this weekend I am going to set aside a few hours and have a really good old school gaming session. My other half is as interested in gaming as I am so I am sure he’ll oblige and join me – maybe I will go the whole hog and buy some of my favourite retro foods and drinks as well, I used to love a bag of cola cubes and a strawberry yazoo after school
