    Beating Mario World for the first time was one of the things that I remember. Beating the level without help from someone else and just watching the end credits roll. Pretty amazing for a kid.

    My favorite memory was playing Emerald on my GBA for the whole day for weeks. I'd go to sleep early everyday so i could have more energy to play it non stop.

    tfw you broke night 3 days in sonic 2 just because you couldn't get past the damn last stage with no rings

    :cry::cry::cry:

    was totally worth once I completed it though, especially as a kid when the stupidest accomplishments are the most satisfying

    I have a lot of favorite memories for retro gaming, but the one freshest in my mind is probably playing Super Mario Bros. 3 with my girlfriend on an original NES and beating it with her.. It had always been one of my favorite games since playing it with my brother when I was young and it was really special being able to share it with my gf and finishing the game with her.

    I used to load up the last level of Donkey Kong Country on SNES, pause the fight, and then air guitar during the awesome guitar parts in the living room.

    One of my most fond memories is with my brother, and playing bubble bobble with him. We put so many hours into that game, and it taught us to work together. I miss the days when I had the opportunity to spend time with him.

    well my favorite memory has to be opening my Intellivision console Christmas 1980 and firing up Space battle. It just seemed so sophisticated. Played Baseball and Sea Battle literally for hours with my dad and anyone else who would play. Good times. Lost my dad this year and I just want to play one more round of Sea Battle with him.

    My favorite retro memory was playing Super Mario Bros 3 with my brother. We decided to play through every world without warping.

    My dad got me a used n64 with two controllers and a few sport games and that was my first experience with video games a few years later we got a free ps2 with some more sports games from a long time family friend. Then for Christmas i got a DS Light with new super Mario bros i away played it but then i broke the bottom screen but i could still use touch screen so i still played with it for a long time until about 2 years ago i had to get rid of it cause it got soaked and didn't work than a few later i got a GBA SP from a friend with a Pokemon card trade then i got a GB color that i lost a year after i got it. Then i got introduced to XBOX OG my step dad dug out his old XBOX OG with a modchip installed he also gave me his old NES and SNES which i still play now i have a 2DS B9S,2 GBA SP's,N64,Genesis,2 soft modded/modchiped XBOX OG,GameCube Modchiped,1FAT PS2 with fmcb and a Slim PS2,PS3 ,and a XBOX 360 that will soon have XKEY360 i love all of them equally and i would love to be able to take my libary of NES games with me on the go but the 2ds seems to play weird and it dont fit in my pocket i have no personal preference to what system i play i love retro and modern games

    My best memory is also my dumbest memory.
    Megaman X was the first game I ever played (it was my older brother's game). However, being the 4-year-old that I was, I didn't understand how the controller worked or anything. I would keep playing the first stage, and run along with the cars that came down the highway. I would never go any farther in the stage because I knew enemies would come at me, and I could die! The thought of dying scared me. So for a long time, my only knowledge of Megaman X was just that first section of the first stage. I wonder how my younger self would've reacted to seeing the rest of the game...

    If I could travel back in time to re live a moment in retro gaming that would be a tough one.... Either my first time beating Metroid on the NES or Ninja Gaiden NES or Contra with a friend.... Or before even that hooking up my Atari 2600 and TV to an extension cord and playing outside under a tree. Was such a great time. My life is honestly filled with a ton of great memories with retro gaming and I wouldn't trade any of them for anything!

    Playing Mine Storm on my Vectrex. The best gaming memories I have had were on that system.

    My biggest "retro gaming" related memory is when I saw Marvel VS Capcom in the arcades for the first time.

    I saw X-Men VS Street Fighter and Marvel Superheroes VS Street Fighter. The appeal was there but limited since it was limited to two franchises. But then MVC1 came long.... OMG it's Captain Commando! From the 4 player beat em up! It's Strider Hiryu! My childhood ninja! It's Megaman/Rockman! It's Jin! From that obscure Capcom fighting game! On a fighting game! With Marvel characters are bonus! OMG! I didn't even play the earlier VS games but with Marvel VS Capcom, I need to play it. And thus started my obsession with the versus fighting games. =)

    It was December of 1995, and I had just spent 25 weeks saving up for a Nintendo Gameboy Pocket. I was 5 years old and knew I would never want to buy another thing in my life. At $2 a week allowance I did every chore asked of me and asked for more ways to help out for more money. My mom drove me to Toys R Us and went up to the window and asked for a Gameboy. The lady askec me what color, blue or silver? I didn't have the money for tax and was about to cry. I hated my life suddenly. I couldn't wait longer, I had to show the other kids at school I was cool. I didn't know what tax was. My mom paid the tax. I got a silver Gameboy Pocket. Then we're about to leave and I said I wanted to look at the games. I saw Super Marioland 2 and fell in love with the cover art. That was the game for me. I told my Ma i'd save up for 16-17 more weeks to buy the game myself. She came over to me and said Ryan I love you, and I'm so proud you saved all of your money up for something that is great and not had just spend it on candy. She bought me the game. I love my mom.

    I had saved up enough to buy an nes game for the first time. I read the backs of the boxes at the store and picked out Bionic Commando. Used to get up early Saturday morning to play it. It was the first NES game I ever beat (after SMB). Still one of my favorite games.

    My best retro game memory is not Nintendo, not SEGA, definitely not SONY, but EPOCH. Introducing, the Barcode Battler II:
    [​IMG]

    I had tons of fun playing through the E1 campaign, playing through the E2 campaign with my password from the E1 campaign, and hunting all sorts of barcodes and trying them out, then using my imagination to draw what I think they are in a piece of cardboard. Definitely loads of fun!

    The card art is pretty good too!

    Many many moons ago, back when I was just a wee lad, I used to visit my cousins fairly regularly. They had one of the coolest console games around, the NES, complete with Mario/Duckhunt, Zapper controller, 2 controllers. Now Mario/Duckhunt was great and all, but there were other gems that they had obtained, two of which were Darkwing Duck and TaleSpin. We used to play those games all the time and it was a struggle to progress, but it was always a blast to play.

    Fast forward over a decade later and I realized that we never beat the first level.

    Year: 1987
    Place: Augsburg, Germany US Army base
    Age: 8 yrs old
    We lived in apartment building style housing. People were coming and going. One day these people were moving away and selling stuff. I used my allowance and some cash from my mom to buy it. I experienced Super Mario Bros and duck hunt for the first time. This was a million times better than the old clecovision and Atari I had. I spent years on learning secrets about Mario.
