I picked up Metroid 2 Return of Samus. I'm a pretty big fan of the Metroid games, and for some reason I had never played this one. I finished it last night and thought it was an awesome game, although I wish it had a little more music. I don't really get why people are so mad about this, since Nintendo doesn't have to give anybody anything.

It's kind of hard to pinpoint exactly when I started playing video games. I was born in 89, and my parents (and grandparents) were gamers, so I was exposed to the NES very early on. They always tell me about how they had a 48 hour Castlevania 2 marathon when my mom was on maternity leave. Supposedly my mom, dad, and grandmother beat Castlevania 2 without a guide over the course of two days while simultaneously taking care of me. I don't think I was able to actually get through the first couple of levels of SMB until I was about three years old. Playing Maniac Mansion before you know how to read was a real bummer, but I figured out how to get inside the mansion regardless.
It depends on if I remember what I was doing in the game where I left off. Especially in Metroidvania kinds of games, if I go more than a week without playing, I'll probably have to start over.
@wrecks: It was a New York Times bestseller long before this contest ever started. This is mostly just for fun, and gives that fans something to get excited about.
Just finished it. That was such a cool 2600 game. I wonder if it would actually work on a real Atari 2600 since you play it through an emulator.
