For Obsidian's crowdfunded love letter to Infinity Engine games like Icewind Dale and Baldur's Gate, I was impressed by its willingness to pull back the curtain and let me see the machinery behind it.

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.

My mom had a NES and played the classics back in the day. Mostly either Super Mario or Friday the 13th. I got a Sega Genesis for my 5th birthday back in 93' that was bundled with Sonic 2 but I also got Jurassic Park and Mortal Kombat II. I played Sonic 2 and Jurassic Park a lot but I played MK II religiously. That's where my gaming really started.
