Super Mario Bros. 3 - Famicom and NES
My first video game. I remember the NES controller was too big for my hands, I didn't have the hand-eye coordination or dexterity to properly time that first Goomba jump, and I liked the noise Mario made when he jumped. Little did I know what I was getting myself into.

Sonic the Hedgehog 2 - Sega Genesis and Mega Drive
First game I was obsessed with. Everyday in 3rd grade I'd come home from school, plop myself in the floor in front of the TV and play this until Mom came home and booted me off the TV. Sooooo much 'final level game over, now you have to start all over again' rage. Those were the good old days.

Super Mario 64 - Nintendo 64
First 3D game. I had so much fun pushing this game's limits. And for the record, I never had any trouble switching from a D-Pad to an analog stick, regardless of the N64's weird controller.

Star Fox 64 - Nintendo 64
First game story/world that I became invested in. It wasn't just about playing a game anymore, it was about saving the Lylat system, getting revenge on that traitorous Dengar, and making James McCloud proud.

Heart Of Darkness - PlayStation
First Playstation game, and a really good introduction to the system. It was pretty challenging too, at the time. The unique art style holds up surprisingly well even today.

The original PS Spyros were the first games to inspire in me a desire for completion. So many all-nighters were pulled to find all those eggs, collect all those gems and complete all those challenges.

Final Fantasy VIII - PlayStation
My introduction to FF and RPGs in general. It's definitely not what you'd call a suitable training ground for someone new to the genre, what with the weird Junction system, and mandatory magic drawing. Knowing nothing about turn-based games, I struggled with this one the first time around, getting through most boss encounters by the skin of my teeth. But I was entranced throughout. Now-a-days, even Omega Weapon is no sweat, so maybe I learned something after all.

I didn't play this until freshman year, a few years after the fact. A good friend of mine was so appalled to learn that I'd never played a Zelda game before, he gave me his copy. I don't remember much about the next several months except for this game.

The Last of Us - PlayStation 3
Back in Dec 2011, I read an article about the next project Naughty Dog was working on. It didn't divulge too much info that I can remember, but what I do remember was a piece of concept art. A sketch of an older man and a young girl, sitting around a campfire laughing. I looked at that sketch, and for whatever reason, I thought to myself, this is going to be the greatest game ever. Turns out, I was right. This game is everything I've ever wanted in life. It is absolutely perfect and I won't accept any other opinion.
