Introduce yourself to the Retro Gaming Tribe here!
Welcome to the Retro Gaming Tribe on Snapzu. I thought it would be great to have a discussion post for us to introduce ourselves in. Please let us know a bit about you, your collection, and your favorite games.
I started gaming around 4 or 5, maybe picking up a controller earlier, with my brother's ATARI 2600. The first game I played might have been Pac-Man, Asteroids, or Space Jockey for the system, but I'm a little fuzzy on that. I later moved on to gaming on my brother's NES and Tandy 1000 computer and then on to the consoles my friends in school had so I shared something in common with them. That path led me to the Sega Genesis, Sony PlayStation, and finally the Nintendo 64 before I started really collecting and playing any system I could get my hands on.
My current collection includes the following consoles and handhelds: ATARI 7800, Colecovision, Intellivision, NES, original Gameboy, Gameboy Pocket, Sega Master System, Commodore 64C, Apple ][gs, SNES, Genesis, Game Gear, Sega CD, 32X, TurboGrafx-16, Panasonic 3DO FZ-10, PlayStation, Saturn, Nintendo 64, Dreamcast, PlayStation 2, XBOX, GameCube, Gameboy Advance, PlayStation 3, XBOX 360, Wii, Nintendo DS, PlayStation 4, Wii U and a PC that can run most new stuff well and DOSBox installed for the classics.
Some of my favorite games would be Asteroids, Donkey Kong, Super Mario Brothers 3, Contra, Contra 3: The Alien Wars, Decap Attack, Diddy Kong Racing, Crash Bandicoot, and Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening DX.
