    The only video game I’ve bought at all is Kirby’s Epic Yarn, for the Wii. I’m hoping I can make this guy I just started dating come over and help me beat a few levels I haven’t been able to beat well enough to get gold…

    The first Nintendo game I bought was Tiny Toons Adventures for the Gameboy. The first one I PLAYED was Fireman Fireman, in Paris in 1982.

    I have never had Nintendo, I was a PC Adventure Game fan instead. But my brother-in-law was obsessed with the Super Star Wars series of games. He tried to get me interested in them, to play two-player with him, but I’m so crap at games it wasn’t much fun for me.

    Brent seems incredibly credulous to believe all those Disney urban legends. He should visit Snopes and enlighten himself a bit.

    It would probably have to be the original legend of zelda with the gold cartridge. Amazing the things that were epic at the time.

    The first game I bought wasn’t for quite some time. I always depended on games being bought for me and for most of the 80’s and 90’s I was a step behind the curve. Sometime after the nintendo was out for a while, we got an atari 2600. When the super-nintendo was big, we got a NES (though I loved it to death).

    I think I may have traded for a game. I don’t know what game I got, but the game I traded was Megaman 4, which I loved to death. The first one I remember for sure buying was a famicom, the Japanese version of Nintendo. I bought it when my family was living in Thailand in 1994 and me and my sister bought the system, as well as Prince of Persia (my sister loved the main character and insisted his name was Darien) and a 400 games in one cartridge. 400 games is actually a lie. It is really closer to 100 games with cheat versions of the others. It included Contra, as well as a bunch of early nintendo games (the kind that played more like Atari games in their simplicity) including some circus game, a generic karate game, a popeye game and the awkwardly named Nuts and Milk, which always got a giggle from us for it’s dirty sounding title. Man, Nuts and Milk was a weird one.

    I never had a chance to make friends in Thailand, since we studied at home (we couldn’t afford the international school), but that system provided hours of entertainment.

    The first game I ever bought was Legend of Zelda 2 from a video game trader. I remember I traded in a Sesame Street game that was somehow worth a ton of money and I bought LoZ 2 with it
