    I remember my sister's ex-boyfriend talking to me in the 80s about how the current (at the time) generation of kids would grow up to be Nintendo champions. I think he was right. My wife plays more video games than me (a lot more), even my mom plays more a lot more than me, and she's 64!

    Nintendo 64 :rockout:

    Am 29, and am not a die hard gamer, my threshold is a few hours at a time, though I have been gaming since I was 5-6, I remeber playing my commodore 64, 3D American Pool, Impossible Mission, then got a master system with Thunderblade, Double Dragon, Sonic and who could forget the hidden maze game in the original master system?

    From then have had a NES, Mega Drive, N64, Dreamcast, PS1, PS2 and now only game on my PC cause it pwns consoles :nutkick:

    Im probably one of the youngest people here, im 18, and i have been gaming since i was 5, but taught to assemble a computer at 11, my dad told me back in the day that a console cant compete with a custom built gaming computer, except for their little gadgets (Kinect) XD.

    I'm 24. My first system was a Super Nintendo in...wait for it...2001! My parents didn't want to get me dragged into wasting my life on games. My first gaming experience was in '92 playing with a friend on his SNES. First computer gaming experience was in '94 with some random game I can't remember. First actual real computer game I fell in love with was Command and Conquer: Red Alert. Still love it and wish they didn't F**K up the rest of the series like they did. I miss light tank rushes on Gamespy! :laugh:
