My first experience with video games was when I was under 5 years old (way back so unsure how old I was) My older brother would usually be in the local arcade/pool hall as a teen. Honestly not sure if they were all 18+ back then, I remember some places at the 18+ sign on the doors. My older brother was in deep shit for not being home on time, I whined to go with my Dad there once got in my bro was playing Frogger and told me to take over could barely see the screen, lol. I guess he knew our Dad was gonna be yelling and swearing so went with him outside so her could get it out instead of in front of me in the car going home.
Then had Colecovision, Intellivision rentals from movie stores back then. My first "own" console was an Atari 2600 (lmao) I remember carrying it home like it was my friggin baby as a kid I think also got Missile Command with it.
At 10-12 years old got a Nintendo (NES) and first time into the RPG's and Sim type games like Sim City. Later got the SNES still into the same type of games. I thought Nintendo was the BEST thing out there, subscribed to their Nintendo Power magazines and everything.
Then I saw the hottest new bombshell on the block and dropped Nintendo faster than my pants when my wife says she horny lets do it.
First time I saw the Playstation and actual video clips in a Top Gun game I was sold almost like going from being a kid to being a man as far as video systems went
Nintendo seemed like a bloody child's toy with their kiddie colorful graphics. Played through PS1 and PS2 and still sitting there. Don't really have the cash now to spring for a PS3...
Anyways after seeing an Xbox with Kinect at couple's place we were hoping would click with pretty much think our next system won't be a PS3 but a Xbox. (Couple didn't work out with fucking sucks! Wife hit it off with the guy and their dating now, I'm back to women telling me off YOUR MARRIED!? POLY EEW THAT'S DISGUSTING YOU SICK PERVERT)
We currently have a PS2 with the Eyetoy, some of the singing games with the microphones, dance pad etc but rarely use it.
My wife and I have also played World of Warcraft for many years. First on retail servers for 2-3 years guild blew up after Wotlk came out. Tried "free servers" and luckly found a great adult one with mature players. Actually fucking ENJOYED WoW like never before but sadly it shut down last year when one of the owners go into some shit and had to disappear, lol.
I enjoyed being a Game Master on that one with about 100 players and later for to be a (level 3 for anyone that knows) on another server which tried to replace the one which shut down. It bombed since the owner was running it from a home computer, had ZERO leadership skills and was a total pussy where anyone could cheat, hack, say their sorry and would get unbanned and back to cheating. Quit that one even being a GM.
Messed around setting up my own home WoW server with a Trinity Core but got boring fast with just my wife and I although she LOVED having full GM powers, fly around, spawn stuff, one-shot bosses, etc. Like a kid in a candy store hehe. I tried a few others since but can't stand the bloody kids on most servers. I LOVE the game, just HATE most of the people
I think the only reason I'd play WoW again would be to help maintain and GM a server with owners staff I could respect.
I've tried other games but WoW seems to be the only one with stunning graphics, love the game controls and will actually work on our old piece of shit desktop computers. (P4, 1gig ram pc2700, 64mb standard video) tried others and they require higher system req's and worse graphics like that when I saw on old SNES games.
Now just fart around on Facebook games, trying to get back into working on my websites. Wife REALLY wants me to make a Poly dating site and market it since have done SEO internet advertising.
Meh I've thought about going back just to check out my guild on Eternal-WoW, left a 300 member guild there as Guild Master lol. If any Wow'ers are thinking to check it out don't waste your time. More bugs than usual, even a Guild Bank bug which I have NEVER seen having tested prob hundreds of servers over the years. GM's mostly just do silly events, ie kill the GM. Although you CAN buy pretty much anything you want if you got the cash!
Anyways, yeah I do long posts.
