Just thought I'd drop in and leave my first post. I actually just discovered this forum by accident this morning and it's great to be here. On to the introduction!
I'm 32 years old and have been playing videogames since I was 6 or 7. My first system ever was a Pong console, and my fate was pretty much sealed by that point. I discovered Nintendo when I slept over at a friend's house when I was 13. I'd been into computer games (Commodore 64) but the moment I picked up and played Super Mario Bros. and Kung Fu, I knew I had to have my own NES. I've owned every Nintendo system since (except Virtual Boy) and probably will remain a fan until Nintendo (or myself) ceases to exist.
Fast forward to tonight. I picked up a Wii a couple of days ago and I'm very happy with it. Still haven't unwrapped Zelda or Trauma Center though as I can't stop playing Metal Slug Anthology and the Virtual Console long enough to bother! I love all kinds of games, but have a soft spot for old school shooters and RPGs. I can't wait to see what this next generation brings as far as Wii and VC games go. (I'm crossing my fingers for Earthbound and Axelay!)
Again, nice to meet you all and I hope I see you in the forums!
