For Discussion #3: Your First Time
Remember when you were like that kid up there, so young and fresh and STARING?
Well, we want to talk about that time. What was the first game you ever played? Alternatively, that you remember playing? Personally, I remember playing adventure games with my father as a child, him reading the text to me. I played King’s Quest a lot, and other licensed stuff like the Inspector Gadget game (which was, at the time, fantastic).
The first console game I remember playing was Sonic 2, which I got when I first got my Genesis. I was so utterly terrible at it I couldn’t beat the first level’s boss, who is, as I’m sure you know, easier than waking up on Christmas. Of course, I’m much better at games now, but it’s always good to remember how bad (or good!) you were as a child compared to now.
So go ahead! Tell us your stories. We here, we like stories. Especially if they are embarrassing ones about you as a kid. We love those.
