I'm 24(25 in March). Been gaming since 90-91. Started out on NES with that Duck Hunt/ Super Mario Bros./ "Track" Game. Could never tell you the right title for that but we had the running pad and everything. I think my first game other than that cartridge was Zelda II. Boy, did I have no freaking idea what to do but it was a blast.

I remembered this too, I was born in 87, and one of my earliest memories was that damn Track and Field game.

I think around when I was 5 and will be 25 in a few months, so almost 20 years now. Started out on my uncle's NES playing Final Fantasy and NARC. I still remember fighting Garland at a young age and beating back weird drug dealers throwing syringes at me and huge frankenstein-esque steroid abusers being able to stop my car ala Superman.

Ah.....good times...good times haha

I am 27 and have been gaming as far back as I can remember. My first console I played was a NES I believe.

Been playing since 1978, with a break from 96-97. My wife plays as well, and so do our kids. Even ran my own game store and was a store manager at Gamestop, on my way to be district manager until we had a family tragedy.

I started when I was about 8 (give or take), and am now 42.
So I've been gaming for about 34 years (+/-).

BTW
I started gaming with the grand-daddy of them all...PONG.
The first console I actually bought with my own money was the classic NES, and have owned every home console since then, including all the more obscure ones such as the 3DO, Jaguar, Neo-Geo, Turbo-Grafx 16, & others).
Plus I've played countless Arcade game kiosks.
GOD, I feel so old.

I know exactly what you mean. Did you notice that the old games were unforgiving? Most games from the 80's make Dark Souls look like Yoshi's Story.
