Loved getting the SNES Mario Paint bundle for my 5th birthday. I still need to get around to picking up a copy again someday.

Star Wars battlefront 2 on the ps2 with my Dad.

It was our favourite game, my name is Luke so it was pretty fitting. We used to play galactic conquest all the time and dual as Luke and Vader. Some good times :)

Well, it doesnt hurt to try to enter, here ya go-

I enjoyed playing Super Mario Bros. on my NES with a CRT TV and finding the secrets before you could just look them up online!

Good luck everyone, with 15 pages of entries, there isn't a huge chance of winning, but I can try.

my favourite retro gaming memory is actually getting Game Boy when i was 11 or so, played the hell out of Tetris

my favourite recent retro gaming memory is playing through the English fan-translation of For the Frog the Bell Tolls (Kaeru no Tame ni Kane wa Naru), which is the secret best GB game.

I never owned any console before the GameBoyAdvance. However, I got to play Pokemon Gold and Silver via a GBC emulator on PC. Don't remember its name right now, but it used to have some graphical glitches from time to time. I used to play them with my brother (I was 6 and he was 8), while we both played by turns while advancing through each of the routes in the game, catching Rattatas and Hoothoots for hours, using the keyboard on a 128 MB of RAM PC.

It was really fun. No other PC flash game from Cartoon Network website was as addictive as Gold and Silver were, even when emulated.

While not being a real console, I find it incredible, for a Pokémon game played outside its intented hardware, to catch easily two kids' attention. Those were really a work of passion. Thanks, GameFreak; thanks Nintendo.

My best retro memories come from the PSX and GAMEBOY. Specially the second one. Playing the whole day -and sometimes even at school- to POKéMON games was amazing. One of the funniest moments of playing POKéMON and I couldn't see the screen so in the character name selector, my name was AAAAAAAA. Good old times.

I loved playing Pokemon Yellow as a kid I always fell for stupid rumors and collecting Pokemon with my brother was always fun! Pokemon is still one of my favorite series!

My gaming days started when my parents brought home a PONG system in the 70's. I've owned nearly every console and handheld that's come out since then. :)

my favorite memory has to be when i picked up star ocean 2 on ps1. I was 10 at the time and while I liked the idea of FF7 having a story i didn't like the game per say. The guy at the locally run game store suggested SO2 since it had a good story but you could actually fight in real time like a brawler. What he didn't tell me was the ridiculous crafting system, multiple ending, secret characters, or the massive replay it had.

That game made me realize rpgs were my favorite genre and I still play it every summer to commemorate my finding it

My favourite Famicom game would be Konami World. I'm not sure if it was released outside Japan, but it was one hell of a mashup of character platform games. One of the hardest game I've played too. Well, most of Nintendo games back then were really difficult anyway.

Probably the original doom on pc, kid me probably shouldnt have been playing that M rated game (it gave me nightmeres too). But it was still fun as hell (pun intended), even the cheat codes were fun to mess around with. Of course you cant forget the iconic music.

My best memories of a retro game were from Xenogears, never felt so concerned for a game, I was still little at the time but it was just amazing; the storytelling was incredible (I had never seen something as deep as that before, and probably won't for a long time) and the graphics at the time were revolutionary to me!
Really was (and still is) a great game, play it if you haven't, I guarantee you will love it !

Back when I was maybe 7 or 8 years old, I was walking down the street, coming home from school, and thinking about video games like usual. Our family couldn't afford much, so I made a wish for all the systems and all the games in the world.
Fast forward a few years, I learned out emulators and roms and was quickly downloading nes and snes roms on my 56k modem. It was amazing, getting to play all the games I've only read in gaming magazines or hearing kids talk about. There were many games that I've enjoyed only through emulation, but Chrono Trigger comes to mind, as I remembered people talking about it in my school and giving tips to each other. I finally got to experience it and it was an amazing experience, better than I'd thought it would be.
