So much more than war...
By shandog137
Posted on 04/18/14
The recent blog, Peace in the Era of Call of Duty  really made me think about war games that dig deeper than simply a kill streak reward. The first game that came to mind was Spec-Ops: The Line and although I haven’t played it, I began to wonder if it did the war genre as...

As long as I can remember I've been a gamer. My first memory is playing Mario Bros/Duck Hunt, and Ninja Giaden. My Arcade was a local store (one that sold pop and candy and food, before Wal-Mart and major gas stations killed them) where I played Space Invaders and Killer Instinct while my dad played pool. The smell of sweat and ass and cigarettes reminds my of my childhood because of arcades.

I can't give an exact number, but... I remember first getting a Nintendo Entertainment System when I was five, it was a joint Christmas present for my two older brothers and I.

I'm pretty sure we had an Atari too... I have very vague memory of playing this game that was like Space Invaders, but wasn't... we also have the Atari gear lying around in the house.

I'm going to guess... maybe since I was three or four years old?

When I was a kid I was absolutely fascinated by video games. Could barely play them for crap when I was really young, but I loved to watch other people play games. I've always been a very arty and visual person so... when I was a kid, it was all about the visuals. Watching someone game was like watching cartoons or a TV show. Smile

Funny how identical our stories are everyone. I myself have memories from about 2 or 3 playing Super Mario Bros/Duck Hunt and walking right up to the screen with gun lol. From NES it just continued on from there. I never owned NES but my neighbor had both SNES and NES. Dad would also rent NES with Mario 3 from vid store occasionally. When I was about 4 my Dad won a SEGA GENESIS at horse race or something. It was hot shit at the time and came with SONIC 2. Had great memories with SEGA CHANNEL when I was about 7.
