    So what got you into gaming?
    When I was six I took a trip to Michigan to visit my dad, uncle, aunt, and my cousins. When I was there my cousin, Caleb, introduced me to his N64 and Goldeneye. And of course I got hooked. Later when I left to Colorado my dad bought me my own N64 and a few games.
    I guess you could call me a gamer then on out, but I truly became a hardcore gamer when I bought The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time!

    My dad bought me the Zx spectrum 48k+. Games took an average of 4-9 mins to load. It seemed so normal and acceptable at the time.

    My Uncle owned a MegaDrive which I started playing from a pretty early age...then I got hooked and my parents must have bought me one too (Well that or my dad got it for himself).

    I have the memory of the goldfish but I think it was the N64 that got me liking games and I truly became a proper gamer or hardcore per say on the PS2. I got intrested in older games and such to so i managed to play some of the older games:)

    My brother had a NES since I was born and he didn't want me to screw it up so when I was a baby he just sat the cord of the controller under the console and made me think I was playing it with him. Then once I got a little bit older and I realized that I wasn't really playing I plugged the controller in and started actually playing. I never played very much until the PS though. I would just occasionally play whatever my brother had bought before then.

    My gaming hobby also started as a result of visiting a relative. My cousin had a Sega Mega Drive at the time and he allowed me to play a game (I think it was Street Fighter). From that point onwards, I wanted a Sega Mega Drive to call my own.
    It was my dad who bought me the machine after I agreed to get good results in my exams. And here I am, continuing the gaming trend with my Wii console.
