    I imagine most of you older guys on here, like me will no doubt have grown up owning all or most of the Nintendo consoles over the years.

    But can you remember your first ever Nintendo experience?

    I was reading this blog post over at WiiCentre.com and it got me thinking:
    http://www.wiicentre.com/classic-nintendo-memories-576/

    That's my first experience btw in the comments :)

    When I was little I used to own a PS1. I went to my bud's house and he had a N64+SM64, OoT, and MM. He was a bit older than me and had gotten pretty far in those games. I was awed. When I came home I asked my dad for a N64 but he said "No, you already have a Playstation.".

    I played the NES over friend's houses back when I was younger. I think I remember playing River City Ransom, Super Mario Bros., Duck Hunt, Excitebike, and a few others. Never owned a Nintendo console myself until the Gamecube though.

    My first Nintendo experience was encountering Donkey Kong in the arcade for the first time. This was awhile before they released a console. I later got a ColecoVision which came bundled with a Donkey Kong cartridge which, at the time, was the closest you could get to the arcade version.

    The Original Nintendo. First game I ever played was: The Original LEgend of Zelda.

    Good times, that is why I am a huge Zelda fan.

    My older cousin playing SMB on his original NES (back when that was current). He also had R.O.B. I was hooked.

    Saved up an entire summer babysitting, mowing lawns, painting the house, etc so I could buy my own. Zelda sucked up most of my life after that for quite some time.

    I don't exactly remember my first time playing the NES and Snes, but I remember bits and pieces of playing Duck Hunt, Mario, F-Zero, etc.

    My uncle moved in with us when we got this house because it's such a terrible area and my mum doesn't like the whole single mother alone thing, so like, when I was four or something, and he brought his NES. He said "I bet you can't do World 8" on Super Mario Bros... That git was right.

    mine was when i was 7. i used to go to my moms house every other weekend and her neighbor was a 19 year old guy named calvin. I was always so jealous because he had nintendo and i was still rocking my atari. my mom was ok with this guy so i would sit over there all the time and watch him play. one day i was over there and he was playing Mike Tyson's Punch Out. i watched him fight and lose to tyson about 800 million times and asked if i could try. He was pissed and said whatever and tossed the controller at me and went to make a sandwich. well, long story short, he walked back just intime to see lil' mac with his hands raised. he unplugged his NES threw it in a crate with all his games and handed it to me.

    Lol! I remember the Worlds. I also remember in Mario 3 there was a jump that was so impossible none of my cousins could do it. Then I was like 3 years younger than them and it took me only 1 try and they were like: O . O
