30 Day Video Game Challenge: Day 8

Day 8 – Your Earliest Gaming Memory
Frogger_1_xbla_coverI had to really think about this one, and I’m still not certain about my answer. Was my earliest game Dr. Mario? Harvest Moon? Should I count Solitaire? In all seriousness, I think that Frogger and Centipede place in my earliest gaming memories. I can remember sitting in the living room, sometimes on the couch and sometimes on the floor with my legs crossed, playing on one of those handheld gaming thingies. The games were a lot simpler then, but that was really the beginning of my interest in games. I also had access to a few of the Tiger handhelds and a Game Boy Pocket fairly early on and played as much as my parents would let me. This is all very non-specific, but it’s been fun thinking, or trying to think, back to my early childhood.
