Since 1980, when I was three. Not sure which game, but it was an arcade machine for sure. I'm 35 now.

Had an NES since before I was born, so I'm not sure exactly when I started.

I'm 19 now though.

I got an N64 for my birthday in June of 1997. So I'd have just turned 9.

To save anyone's brain from the arithmetic, I'm 24 now.

got Mario Kart with it. First race I did I came 4th, using Mario. Luigi pipped me just before the finish line. Remember it awfully vividly. Most breathtaking moment was Mario jumping out that warp pipe and being in the castle grounds in Mario 64 (second game I got). That was something else.

I had played bits and bobs of Mega Drive and SNES at friends house, and some gameboy games but never really was into videogames. Preferred to go play football in the street or just generally do stupid kid stuff. Got that, and the slippery slope started. Now gaming is by far, my main pass-time.

Favourite games:

Of All time: FF 8 or FF 10.
On 360: Mass Effect 3
On N64: Mystical Ninja Starring Goemon (it's odd, but so damned good.... PLASMA!)
On SNES: Super Mario World (masterpeice of gaming. A true gem).
Backlog (6): Blue Dragon, Sacred 2, Risen, Mind Jack, X3, Dungeon Siege 3

Since the late 80s. My first games were Super Mario and Mike Tyson Punch-Out. I'm 28.

I started gaming before I could walk (no really). Beat the old Mario on the Duckhunt Mario cartridge for NES when I was 2 and have been gaming semi-religiously ever since :P and Im now 22 :3

I believe I was 5 or 6 when I played my first video game. I think it was either Ridge Racer or Battle Arena Toshiden. I'm 17 right now.

I became a junkie with Tecmo Super Bowl when it came out in 1991. First on the NES. Now on PC emulators and editors which let me change the rosters. Still playing it today. The game is pure crack.
