So just list your first console and any other info about it that you want and post some memories. I'll start.
My very first console was Super Nintendo. It was my first present I ever got and I got it during the christmas of '91, I was born about 4 months prior to that. My parents say that I didn't start playing it until I was about 1 and that I didn't actually grasp what I was playing until I was about 2 or 3. They also said that I like to chew on the controllers. The first game I got for it was Super Mario World, which came packaged in and to this day it's one of my favorite games I've ever played. I'm glad that SNES was my first console because it exposed me to the wonderful and magical world of Nintendo and many consider the SNES era to be the golden age of games. I still have my original SNES and it's in very good condition. There is no yellowing and the only "defect" with the console is that my name is written on it in red crayon. The reason for that is because I used to think I was so cool because I had one and I wanted everyone to know who's it was. Some of the controllers have bite marks all over them.
One of my earliest memories is the main screen from The Legend of Zelda. Idk why, but I just remember seeing the screen for the first time and finding it really intriguing coupled with the music. Also my dad had a NES and me and my best friend used to play a lot of Super Mario Bros.. Well one day I told him that you could jump over the flag and every time he played the game after that he would try and do it and be disappointed every time. Finally, after about a few weeks I told him that I just made the whole thing up.
Then there were the console wars in school between SNES and Genesis. I had both because I loved Sonic and even thought that he was cooler than Mario for a brief period of time before I regained my senses. I remember feeling so bad for the kids who only had Genesis and thought that it was better. The majority of my grade used to have a SNES and we would rip on them so hard.
Then there was Super Mario Kart which established who's character was who for every Mario game after that between me and my 2 best early childhood friends. I ended up going with Yoshi and eventually Yosh became my nickname since it sounds pretty close to my actual name. The other friend became Luigi and his older bro used to roll with Bowza until Wario came along.
As always I look forward to the replies.
