What’s that game or that moment you remember when gaming just ‘clicked’ for you? Did you have that moment? How’d you get into gaming?
I was just thinking about this the other day after someone asked me this same question. ‘Oh wow you’re really into games! So, what got you into games?’. I never really thought about that until I was asked. For me the moment it just clicked that I love video games was probably when I got the GameCube. I was turning 12 years old and saved my own money to buy a console for the first time on my own. I’d been reading Nintendo Power for months right before, getting excited about the console, playing Luigi’s Mansion & Super Smash Bros. Melee.
Then when I got the console with Super Smash Bros. Melee, I was so hooked and excited. I spent hours playing that game with my brother and my friends. That was also the first console that I actually played a Legend of Zelda game for more than five minutes. It was also the first time I played a Metroid game, along with Metroid Fusion on the GBA. It was the first of many things that ended up making gaming my favourite past time and a hobby I care deeply about.
I’d love to hear everyone’s stories as I find it fascinating to hear from people around the world about the hobby we all love!
