Your Nintendo/Sega etc (a thread inspired by Nightrious)
When I was six, my father brought me back a Nintendo Gameboy from Japan. Remember the first gameboys? The chunky white ones? Anyway, I was the first kid in my class to have one, and was constantly glued to it... My favourite game was this japanese cartridge which had sixteen games on. Luckily, most of the games were in english, and contained games like Streetfighter, Spiderman, Burgerbarn (anyone else remember that?), Super Mario Bros. etc...
When I was a little older, about seven, I got a Sega Mega Drive (the 16 bit one) Didn't you just love when you put the cartridge in, and the Sega logo would come up and sing 'SAAYYYGAAAH'
When I was ten or eleven, I got a 'gameboy pocket', which was a waste I admit,seeing as the 'gameboy color' came out literally a month after I got it.
At age twelve, I got the Playstation1. Around this time, I also got a Sega Game Gear- which came out the same time as the chunky Gameboys, but was less popular. Why?! You can see the screen well in the dark, and it had better games. It's around the same league as Gameboy colour, actually, infinately better!
Anyway, what electronic games did you have, or have now (I still play on the GameGear and my pocket Nintendo)? I'm going to save up for one of these, f--k the ipod phase:
Also, if anyone remembers Sonic the Hedgehog2 for Game Gear, and remembers how to do the cheat at the beginning of the game (the one where you have to mess around with the controls to get access to any level at your leisure) can someone tell me how to do it?
