We got one around launch I think, but it was kept from my brother and I until Christmas. I remember playing the Kiosk in Walmart for literaly hours and hours while my mother shopped. My brother and I would hog it, none of the other kids in the store had a snowball's chance in hell of getting their hands on the controller untill we had to go home, lol. The only game I played on the kiosk (once every couple weeks for like 2 or 3 months) was Super Mario 64. I was hooked the moment I saw it. Then one day I got a PS1 all for myself, and due to pressure from my mother and brother, I gave the N64 to my brother which he later sold.
About a year ago these memories got the best of me, so I started looking to buy an N64 just for Mario 64; a buddy of mine gave me his childhood system and a bunch of games for free! All I had to do after that was find the one game I wanted to play, Mario 64 of course. Well, while on Ebay I found some other games I played when I was young; Mortal Kombat, Starfox, and others. But above all, I was given 2 of my first Zelda games from a friend from a Camaro message board I frequent, those games being Majora's Mask and Ocarina of Time.
So here I am, almost 20, making more memories with my 360, DS Lite and my new Wii. One thing I learned from getting rid of my first N64 years ago, my Ps2(s) and my first XBOX, is I always regret selling my games and consoles. For which reason I have sworn to myself I will never sell another console or game. One day I will push aside the Xbox 1080, PS5 and god knows what crazy named Nintendo console is out at the time, and break out the 'ol N64, Xbox, 360 and Wii and share these memories and games with my kids.
That got kinda mushy in some parts. . .
