Super Mario Bros, Duck Hunt, and Kickmaster. Those were the days.

Damn, now I feel OLD !
:(


Nah. You got to live through punk when it was good, metal during it's formative years (too late for the birth) and pretty much all of gaming. Lived through the slasher boom.

I like being my age. I was born at a pretty cool time. I don't know if I'd feel the same way if I were 20 years younger.

I started gaming since the fourth generation and I was born during the 4th generation (born 1992). I started playing video games at the age of 3 (1995). My first console was the SNES and my second was the Genesis. The only gaming system I got for the 5th generation was the Game Boy Color so I pretty much skipped a majority of the fifth generation (as well as most of the fourth generation but at least I got a few fourth gen consoles). I still have my SNES and Genesis as of today (age 20) but I stashed them away.

I guess it was really third gen, but I didn't really get into gaming until around fourth.

2nd Generation

When the Arcades were the "movie theaters" of gaming
When we would pray that the Atari-Intellivision-Colecovision version would look as remotely close to the arcade game as possible (which was a fool's hope)
When Dragon's Lair was considered the most advanced video game ever made

3rd Generation

I remember feeling like such a badass beating Sesame Street Countdown when I was 4. It was the only game I could ever beat on our NES without having to use a Game Genie or getting my older sister to help.
