I’ve always loved playing video games from a young age.
I remember our first home console was one of them 42 games on 1 cartridge things that come with 2 controllers and a gun controller for the duck shooting game. I used to love playing that and the paper delivery game.
After that I knew I would like a handheld gaming device so I could play it on my own without my brother stealing it from me! So my first handheld console was a pink Gameboy advance SP, which I still have! I got my first Pokémon game with it too. I had Pokémon leaf green and my first Pokemon was bulbasaur.
I loved the Nintendo stuff so when the Original DS come out, I asked for that one Christmas in pink and I got it with Nintendogs. Since then I’ve had the DSlite, 3DS and now I have the New 3DS. I just love these handheld gaming devices and still enjoy gaming on them sometimes instead of reading or watching TV.
Then a love of PlayStation was born! Haha
Me and my brother got a PlayStation 1 which I loved! Playing crash bandicoot, rugrats, demolition derby, GTA and many others.
Then my brother received a PS2 which I made him share with me haha. Used to love playing two player James Bond with him and shooting him from a sky lift or the top of the building.
I shared a PS3 with my ex partner and played so much Ni No Kuni it’s unreal and other games of course but I loved the console.
I have had an Xbox 360 and recently an Xbox One so I’ve covered all genres to be honest.
I’ve loved every console I’ve had and I’ve never in particular had a favourite. I loved my Xbox one for the games I had and the friends I made and now I own PS4 instead I’m still just as happy. I enjoy playing portal knights with my daughter, lego Harry Potter or Little big planet 3. We’ve got some amazing games on the PS4.
I enjoy seeing the games industry evolve and change. I may not have been around for the “birth” of gaming but remembering it from those pixeled graphics, cheap games and devices,clunky controls and the amazing couch co-op era, compared to what we have now is wonderful.
