    I got my first gameboy (SP) when i was pretty young. My dad got it for $15 on Black Friday. He is a mechanic, so he would often find lost games in cars people turned in to sell. He gave me a copy of Pokemon Yellow and I played it for about four whole days before putting it down to do anything else in my (busy) elementary school life. I made most of my friends through Pokemon :) I also remember playing Zelda and Kirby for hours on end, and I’d love Christmas because I could ask Santa for a bunch of games.

    Playing Shining Force II on the Sega Channel--I loved it so much I rode my bike to the game rental store down the street and rented it.

    I also never returned it, gladly paying them whatever the cost was to keep it. I had to skip paying for lunch at school for like 3 weeks.

    Worth it.

    I'll never forget playing the beginning/middle of Pokemon Silver a thousand times when I was only 4 or 5 because of the dead RTC battery. And the best part was, I never actually cared lol

    My best retro memory was the Nintendo 64.
    I always wanted a SNES at first, until the Nintendo 64 came out, and still going strong.

    Getting the SNES without knowing much about it first, blew my mind, the games shat all over the old DOS games we had for our 486. You felt a spiritual connection to the games with the tight controls, vs haunching over the computer and tapping at keyboard (we didn't have a mouse).

    WOW, this has made me think about the first games I played....

    My first computer was the Amiga 500 and I remember playing games like Cannon Fodder and Megaball. After that we got the Sega Mega Drive and Sonic and Co.

    My first Handheld was a black and yellow Space Invaders style game. I remember using it on the coach going to Callela on a family holiday. It used to eat batteries for fun:

    This was the height of my mobile gaming but I spent hours on this bad boy. Never could play on Level 3 though. Thinking back on it I must have only been about 7 or 8 I think.

    One of my favorite retro gaming memories would have to be, being about 7 or 8 years old, going down the street to the local liquor store with my dad and brother and getting snacks and drinks and playing fridays and saturdays away with our NES, SNES and Genesis. I can't forget the time when my dad brought home a copy of Golden Axe, we marathoned it the whole night to the point where my mom woke up and told us all to go to bed (we finished it the next day though, no biggy)

    Wherever you want me, baby.
    If I still have time, here's mine:

    Dentist Office. Young ol' 333. Had Super Mario World there and Sega Genesis (Sonic 1). Played a lot. Power Rangers poster in the doctor's office.

    Short and Sweet. <3

    I never really had a retro console.
    But, i remember playing my cousin's copy of Pokemon Yellow, and finally catch mewtwo for him (after he fails million times, lol!)
    and he ask me how did I do that (like I've just performed a miracle).

    My favorite video game memory was also my first gaming achievement... munching all four monsters with one energizer in the Pac-Man arcade game. Doesn't seem like a big deal now, but in 1982 I was really thrilled that I managed to do it.

    Mine was playing Terranigma with a friend. He was not into RPGs, and at that moment I had no friends into that kind of games, so it made me very happy :)

    I think my favorite retro memory is probably finding out about super mario bros 3 from the wizard movie and booklet they handed out before we went into the theater. and it didn't seem long after that the game officially came out. That was way before I started shopping mainly at amazon.

    My favorite retro gaming memory is playing Toejam & Earl on the Sega Genesis with my mom.

    Running from present-stealing moles, Boogeymen, insane dentists, lawnmower men, nerd herds, tomato-firing duck squads, and evil ice cream trucks...
    Getting swept up by hurricanes and dumped out in space...
    The other player "sharing" the Rocket Skates with you on narrow pathways...
    Sneaking up on Santa and taking his presents...
    Competing to see who can find the most Rocket ship Pieces...
    Playing "Random World" so it's a different experience every play-through...

    We still play Toejam & Earl together occasionally. What a fun and creative game.

    My favorite retro gaming memory is when I finished the first Batman game on my NES clone (we had a lot of those in Brazil). It was amazing!

    EDIT: I don't have nor Twitter neither Facebook account. :-(
