    I remember,a couple of years ago,my cousin had replaced her N64(it was given away) with a Sega Genesis,and I was facinated by it. She let me play it,and my first games were Sonic The Hedgehog 1 and 2 on the Genesis. Later on,I got a gameboy color, a GBA,and a Gamecube, and ever since then, I became a full fledged Hardcore gamer. [​IMG]

    What was your first Game?

    Super Mario Bros. + Duck Hunt

    This was the first cartridge my father and I put into his NES console back when I was 2½. It was also one of my favorite and still is to this day.

    Oh... I actually can't remember my first game?

    I don't think it was Super Mario.... it might have been Mortal Kombat on the Sega Megadrive? Or it may have been Super Mario Bros on the NES lol. One of those... and either NES or the Megadrive was my first console.

    Can't remember exactly. Was probably Super Mario Kart (which I played when I was 3)

    Why is PSX used as abbreviation for Playstation/Playstation 1/PSOne?

    Good question. I've never really understood that myself.

    I vaguely remember but I think it was Street Fighter (i dunno which version) for the SNES.. 14years ago.. And Red Alert(which was still black and white) played on a PC(Windows 95). Same day..

    The StreetFighter one, my first try, RYU, got a hadoken after a few seconds. It was a good feeling.

    Either it was Digger on my grandpa's Amstrad computer, or Q-bert on my c64. I'm not sure which one I played first, I was like 5-6 years old back then.

    Got my C64 quite early (its serial no is 4096), and I remember trying to figure out what I was supposed to do in Q-bert without any success. Digger was far more enjoyable, games doesn't get much simpler than that. I was sooo happy every time I managed to finish the first stage. Never got past the second one [​IMG]


    Now I'm going a bit OT;

    Still got my C64 left, however, it refuses to access the disk drive anymore so it's basically useless. The same happened to a friend's C64, so it can't be an all that rare problem. I've googled around for a solution without finding anything relevant (I did however find a really good paper on the 1541 drive).
    The disk drive is ok, I've had it connected to a pc and used it to dump disks, so the problem must lie in the C64 itself.

    Anyone happen to know where to find a solution to this?
