    Hit the multi-quote button for each thread you want to reply to except the last one. On that one hit the quote button. Then just edit in your comments between the quotes.
    It takes a little getting used to. I did a little head scratching when W1zz first added the function too.
    Anyway, I merged your triple posts.

    Ahhh let me prepare. ....


    I also had a electronic speed track with cars racing i remember that being very fun but maybe it was connected with game , i don't know , but i still remember the smell of burned electrical wires , and i was at the small age so Into these tech stuff i started repairing those cars , the wires were being smudged and it loosen the contact if not cleaned.

    Fake gameboy tetris (chinese handhelds)
    Very old sega / or Nintendo system with game-slot cards , 2 player , remember visions of a Gun Controller for shooting ducks probably duckhunt but not the original , the game was probably a fake or a copy , but it was shooting ducks and the DOG was hunting them , there was some other games like 50-all in one gameslot (cartrige) the most i played was some kind of TANKS or Color Tanks or how it was called, WARTANK or welll similar , but it was a singleplayer and multiplayer game , everyone started with your mini tank and shoot the other and there was a map of square-like obstacles and walls that were usually green , the tanks were in color of the player (not a real tank but in pocekt-wise , red , green, blue etc)

    I don't know if it was sega or nintenod but we bought it on a small fair (only the stands, no anything fancy or the big rides or anything like that) I was a tech guy familiar from early age , that why i looked at the box so much and i asked father i need this as , and i JUST think i saw what i actually didn't know anything about back then , i think i saw SEGA on the white box and there was this piece of back box, wires and cotrollers inside , it probably wasn't a nintendo but im really not sure , the console had a big button which you could push it into 3 setting and a reset button i think but it was all in a slider , this was pre-1995 or somewhere around that. How can i remember much , i was 4y old imo.


    So there's the newer stuff ...

    WaveRace 64
    Donkey Kong 64
    Super Mario 64 (mega fish)
    Super Smash Bros 64 (supermega fish)
    Yoshi Story 64
    Command & Conquer 64 (mega fish)
    unfamiliar helicopter RTS/RPG game (can remember if i see it)

    Bomberman on a FloppyDisk
    Age of Empires 2 (supermega fish - Scenario editor was EPIC and AOE3 even more , my modding life started here - yes , i modded and made custom maps starting at age of 7)
    DuckShot
    Dune 2000 (big fish)
    Settlers
    Civilization
    Anno
    Sim City
    Warcraft 2 (big fish)
    Red Alert 2 & YR (supermega fish)

    * fish = playing hours / Favouriteness factor

    Orchid was bad, but Jago on the harder difficulties would give you nightmares.

    The Metroid Primes weren't bad by ANY means, especially the first one, but they never had the class that Super Metroid had.

    I was kind of the same mindset when I first played Prime, but after getting into the story, it really was close to Super Metroid in fun levels and general ideas. The 2nd Prime was meh, but I still have it.

    I played hours and hours of Pole Position in one of those sit down models at the local bowling alley.

    I remember Tron and The Red Barron were outlines like Starwars was. If only those quarters spent there were actually a savings plan, I'd be a rich man I'm sure;)

    im big fan of metroid , that's probably a legendary rank if you ask me , halo is scraching it's surface, but the game is not a FPS as noobs try to compare with it , it's action-adventrue-shooter.


    but that's not my childhood , the thread's about something like 10yr age and below.
