Christmas/Hanukkah/Kwanza is almost upon us and with that comes the nostalgia of Holidays past. Take a moment and think back to what event involving video games comes to you as your strongest and most sentimental memory. Perhaps it was the Christmas morning you unwrapped your very own Super Nintendo, finally beating a game you've had for months (as we all know, beating a game before the days of save points was a different beast all together), or maybe it's just the impact a certain game's story had on you.
For me, personally, it would probably be the Christmas morning that I unwrapped my Sega Genesis. It is the only console my parents ever bought for me. We had a Nintendo but that was purchased just before I could really comprehend video games. (Dont get me wrong I consider NES my first console, I played a LOT of games on it, it just wasnt bought for ME)
Hard to narrow down. Unrapping the NES one Christmas is up there. So is treating myself to my 360 and some games in '09, after working at my current job for about a year. In-game, maybe coming out of the sewers for the first time in Oblivion, seeing that beautiful starry night sky and landscape beckoning me to explore it.
