As the title reads, what is the game (or series) that dragged you into the hobby of gaming, if you can recall of course. Mine was the original legend of Zelda, and I've played every console title since.

What about you great people?

This is a tough one. I really can't remember, but it was probably Super Mario Bros. 3 and Super Mario Land 2: Six Golden Coins. Those two games just really impressed me, and it was from there that my dedication to gaming began.

I still need to get a 3DS...

My earliest gaming memories are of Jungle Hunt and Adventure on the Atari 2600.

Been hooked ever since.

Has to be Super Mario 2. The NES was my first game system and that was my first game. Been a gamer ever since.
