    When did you all start gaming and what got you into it? me and my brother got the N64 for Christmas in 1998 and We were so excited. I was only 6 at the time so I wasen't that good when I started, but I can learn fast. I learned how to read when I was three. My brother, who is 2 years older than me, played alot with me too. I think we got Diddy Kong Racing and we played that for hours. We all took turns playing and we all had fun. I tried to get my parents into playing but they always went the wrong way. Then I got Mario Kart 64 and Super Mario 64 a little while later. I becaame a huge and I mean huge mario fan. I played Super Mario 64 for hours and hours a day. of course I was still new to gaming so I had to take breaks like every hour to stop my eyes from hurting. I beat Super Mario 64 and it was one of my favorite games. I got some games later on like Donkey Kong 64, Banjo-Kazzoie, The Legand of Zelda: Ocarina of Time and other fun games. I still play my N64 sometimes.

    So what about you? When did you start gaming and what got you into it?

    I started out whenever Duke Nukem II came out or whenever NES came out, i remember playing both but i'm not sure which came first. After that i got SNES and then went pure PC gamer, Hellz yea, until about 6 months ago where i got my 360 and the a PS3 and then Wii.

    I started when I was 4-5 years old, when the NES came out, I played Super Mario Bros./Duck Hunt with the orange pistol, Super Mario Bros. 2, Super Mario Bros. 3, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles(I loved them since that age and I still love them) and Dr. Mario, then we got the Snes then the N64, then Gamecube and now Wii ohh yeah, it's really good to live every moment of Nintendo since the day they started, and see how Mario and all their wonderful characters grow with me(or you) I will always be loyal to Nintendo..I started to be a big fan of Zelda since Ocarina of Time, and Star Fox was one of those games I loved but never got to buy them since the original one came out...I'm still a big fan of Mario that I don't even put pictures of him i avatars and such because it's obvious I like him since he's the one character and game that made me like Nintendo..and like I said I still love the TMNT and will be getting the new game for the Wii and also the movie when it comes out on dvd, I don't cre if it's good or bad I will get it..oh and I have a lil brother and he likes the games I don't like too much of Nintendo like Metroid, Custom Robo..so I guess if you put us both together we're the ultimate Nintendo fanatic. because he also gets the portables like Game Boy Advance and DS when I only get the consoles

    sometimes i feel when people make these kind of threads they just want people to read their own story and then totally ignore what others post
    and these kind of topics, theres so many of these types of threads and im sure you saw that they explode with responses thus resulting in hoping youll get reputation on the forums
    nothing personal

    i started gaming with the NES
    'nuff said.

    Oh cool..and yeah I was talking to you obviously that's why I didn't quote because your post was right above mine, if I quote it's because the post I'm replying to is afar from mine

    Played my first bit of mario on the SNES when I was 2 (I still remember laying belly down on the floor looking up at the TV playing Super Mario World), that was almost 15 years ago.

    The original Pong console in 1975 (which supported 4 players simultaneously, and at the time, was amazing!!) - then got the Atari 2600, Coleco Vision, NES, Genesis, SNES, Nintendo 64, GameCube and now the Wii (probably missing some in there).

    Also had the first PC(actually first the Apple II and then a PC later) (and the first games I played were Wizardry and Ultima - I think these both came out in 1981) as well as the first Macintosh (which also had some pretty cool games on it).

    I started gaming along time ago. Pretty much back in 1997ish. When I moved to Ontario, we stopped at a friend's house, and the dude who lived there had an NES and we played Super Mario Bros. That's right! My first game I ever played (as far as I remember) is Super Mario Bros.! Then Christmas '97 came and me and my brother got a SNES! Oh yeah! That was awesome, and the first game I played on it was Yoshi's Island, followed by Mario Kart. Later we got the N64, and so on and so forth...yep, those were the good old days. Gotta love the 90's, all of those good games, movies, and especially the tv shows! Well, I better stop, cause that's leading into another topic. :lol:
