Yoooo! I'm Blake Fix.
I got introduced to gaming as a little kid like most of ya'll and it BLEW MY FREAKIN' MIIND. My cousin was playin' super mario 1 or 2... or 3... and she wouldn't let me play! Which of course only drove my passion. I remember 2 quite clearly at that time blowing me away caus you could pick stuff up like whaaaaat.
I still think 2 (Even though yes, doki doki blablabla) is BETTER THAN 1. Controversy explosion!
I asked for a Gameboy for my birthday, but I got a GAMEGEAR instead. I carried it around in a little SEGA suitcase.
My first game (along with some pooptastic baseball game that came with it) was Sonic 2. It was hard but I finally mastered it. A proud day indeed.
One-hit-and-your-dead Bosses, what were they thinking?!
Oh wait! Before that... yeah... I played a bunch of DOS games in the den when my feet couldn't even reach the ground. Jill of the Jungle anyone? Those were magic days.
I've never seen a button for Turtle anywhere else. I think that was slo-mo mode?
I did extra chores for an N64.
The atmosphere of this game holds a special place to me. I'll have you know in Mario64 you do the exact same things. Explore, defeat, collect. There was ammo in BK (& more powerups) which made it seem like you collected more but I digress...
THEN POKEMON CAME OUT HOOOLY SHHHHHH. I pretty much ate, slept, and sh** pokemon for a year or two, while also playing:
Megaman X & X4
SuperMario & Kart64
with friends and alone. My friend had a Super Nintendo. Other friend had PlayStation.
home someday. It said so on TV." Do you get all your information from TV, MOM??
That line made me sad at the time. Now I need to get the hell out of here.
“TO THE FINDER… THE ISLE OF KOHOLINT , IS BUT AN ILLUSION… HUMAN, MONSTER, SEA, SKY… A SCENE ON THE LID OF A SLEEPER’S EYE… AWAKE THE DREAMER, AND KOHOLINT WILL VANISH MUCH LIKE A BUBBLE ON A NEEDLE… CASTAWAY, YOU SHOULD KNOW THE TRUTH!” Best Zelda Ever.
I love Wind Waker too. Smash Bros. Melee defined Highschool for me. Nintendo was so underdog then, I think it made ME feel underdog too, another illusion.
Welp okay, that's me, basically. http://www.invincibletime.com/
And I just finished my first game! It's called Walker! Single button platform adventure. Theres a handy dandy Game Booklet too. All on that site =D
