30 Day Video Game Challenge - Day 1: Very First Video Game
Super Mario Bros. - NES
Probably a cliched answer, but from as much as I can remember, this was my first foray into video games. Honestly, I don’t remember much of my childhood. Just that I was sick a lot, and the NES was there… And that we were in a much worse neighborhood then… And I guess I was around 4 at the time… Oh god, that means that the best my family could afford around 1995 was an NES. We’ve come a long way…. Crawled out of that cesspool of a neighborhood. Bought a better house in a much nicer neighborhood. Actually, now that I think about it, we were one of the first in our new neighborhood to get an N64, so that would have been 1996. We moved up quick!
Sorry, I’m not even talking about the game. I’ve just had a series of flashbacks and am now measuring my family’s financial status over time through video games.
And I have another four of these to do today to catch up…
