I have a few good memories of playing with others as a kid, but I normally played games by myself. Some of the ones i can think of off the top of my head are:
- Playing Mortal Combat (SNES) on one of my birthdays and everyone there having a big tournament out of it. Actually that was the first and last time i ever had fun playing a fighting game.
- Playing Golden Eye (N64) with one of my friends. We would take turns playing the single player trying to beat the game on the hardest difficulty for the millionth time, and then playing some split screen death match with bots in between for a change of pace.
- Playing Superman 64 (N64), with the same friend as above, and having a god dam blast. Despite it being though of as one of the worst games for the N64, I had a dam blast with my friend as we kept trying to stay alive despite the bad controls. We just saw the horrible game design as an extra challenge.
- Playing Armorines (N64),same friend as the last two, co-op. It was the first game I ever played that had a co-op mode and we played that fucking game to death! For the first time ever we didn't have to take turns playing a game, but could work together and we never had more fun then with them.
I have too many amazing memories of playing online multi-player games to list them off but those are the only ones I ever really had with someone in the same room as me. With the exception of the brief time i was friends with the guy mentioned above i never really had any friends.Plus, I'm an only child so i never had other people to play games with so I always played by myself.
