So, to try and encourage some activity on the board here, I wanted to steal an idea I got from the general gaming forum, and create a nostalgia thread. 1. What game or games did you spend the most time playing as a kid? 2. What was the first game to impact you on a deeply emotional level? Bonus: Did gaming shape you as a person? 1. What game or games did you spend the most time playing as a kid? - Let's see... I remember playing some older PC games, on Windows 95, but as above, I definitely remember Oregon Trail on a floppy disk at school as a kid. I remember having friends with NES's, and I absolutely loved playing Duck Hunt. Perhaps it was because of the actual gun you got to use, which is probably why I'm into FPS games to this day. First gaming system aside from PC we owned though was an SNES. Played Super Mario World for hours on end. Had Super Ghouls and Ghosts, but dang that game's hard. Took me breaking it back out in college to finally actually beat the game. As I got older, got a Playstation, and with it, Final Fantasy 7. That was probably the game I dropped the most hours on (Level 99, maxed stats, all the secret weapons, etc). 2. What was the first game to impact you on a deeply emotional level? I remember Super Mario World giving me that feeling of being invincible, like I could take on the world. (Old) Spoiler Alert! Bonus: Did gaming shape you as a person? Most definitely. Gave me my interest in technology, and helped inspire my creativity and wonder today. I know other gamers like myself (who enjoy RPGs) absolutely love getting lost in a good story. Much like a good book. Only it's better, because instead of reading about the characters... you ARE the characters.
