Fuck me Diddums, that's hard core, finding your cousin like that!
Well, my gaming experience started on a Sega console with something that must have been a 8 bit graphics or something. Had a kind of casette with 10 games on it, one of them being a basketball game with stick figures and a square ball
Think I was around 9 or 10 years old.
A few years later a friend of mine got a C64 with games on casettes. Man, it took a long time to load! Can't remember which games we played though.
But he got an Amiga 500 later and man what a difference! Floppy discs was heaven compared to tapes. Played the hell out of Sensible Soccer. Also remember Test Drive and Prince of Persia.
This was around or a bit later when we also had arcade halls with pinball machines and some videogames. Great memories of Double Dragon!
Then came the Nintendo and PS1, which I didn't get but played at a friends house a lot. Wrestling and Super Mario ferr dayz.
Then came a few years with PC gaming as my then father-in-law built one for me and my ex girlfriend. He played mostly shooters like Wolfenstein, Doom and such. Still remember he playing the first Farcry game. He tried to crack and burn a copy but didn't work. But still had awesome games like Soldier of Fortune, Black Hawk Down, Wolfenstein etc.
First real console I got was a PS2. Played mostly driving and fighting games. Didn't play that much on it and only had a couple games. GTA Vice City, which I didn't like. PC gaming took a baxk seat as my ex got sucked into WoW. Probably cost us the relationship.
When I met my wife and move across the country she bought me a PS3 as a welcoming gift and I really started to play online, and found MW2. And finally found MW2forum.
And the rest is history as they say.
Probably forgot some good memories here and there, but most is covered.
