My console gaming ended at university with Need for Speed Underground and Tekken 5 when I should have been studying. I'm not sure where I'd find the time to commit to them now either.
I'm guessing that your first console was a PS2? Those were good times, my friend. Games were much simpler back then. I remember how an 8 MB memory card was enough to store all of your save files in the PS2.
Not quite ...
and I am really showing my age here ... my first console was a Sega Master System that I was given for Christmas, but feel like it was more for my Dad :)
Game cartridges had to be bought in person, not downloaded, and Sonic the Hedgehog bounced along platforms in 2D.
Our first family computer was almost exclusively used for games like Rebel Assault, Kings Quest V and Doom
Dang, those games are indeed old. It's amazing to see how far technology has come. Comparing Doom to modern FPS titles is astonishing.
Looking back it probably wasn't particularly age appropriate but there ya go :)
Doom is such a classic now.
My first console was a sega master system too. But before that I had a Sony HB-10 (MSX1). I still play some of them in emus, the MSX is in the closet collecting dust.
