Jak and Daxter came out 11 years ago.
Yeah I was exaggerating for effect.
Blimey 11 years ago, I still remember buying that game like it was yesterday.

My favorite part of Emerald was re-battling the Gym Leaders.

Definitely this.

Topic- We were a handheld family only, except for a time we had an N64.
Old grey gameboy- pocket- color - SP- DS - Lite. Haven't taken the 3DS plunge [yet].

Mario and Tetris for games. I was too young to remember which N64 game I was playing (but it was FUN!).

I don't know what it was called, but it was a side-scrolling platformer and you were this dude on a movie set (particularly remember a western theme), and your weapon of choice was sticks of dynamite and there was floating sombreros that were used as moving platforms.
Remember using a keyboard to play it.

Anyone have any idea what it is?

Well, my first guess after a quick Google search for those clue is Sunset Riders.
It was an arcade game that was ported to the Genesis (Mega Drive) and SNES.

Does this look familiar?

First game being some game you had to run around carrying quest items infront of your character and not get hit by an enemy or you would have to go find it again.

Nah, the protagonist was some skinny dude, not a beefy cowboy with a six-shooter. Also was very platform based, not a sidecrolling shooter (hence the weapon of choice being a stick of dynamite

My favorite part was the game telling me its time battery was broken and that every time based function (berries, special events, sales, etc.) would cease to work, so I stopped playing it for like 4-5 years, utterly heartbroken. :cry:

Then I turn it on again and lo and behold, the darn clock still works. It never really broke; it was just a minor malfunction.

Still one of the greatest Pokemon games ever (perhaps the best when subtracting nostalgia), but the whole long forced hiatus was rather bitter. :(


Back on topic, my first videogame was none other than the original Super Smash Bros. for the N64.
That was a blast to play and created in me a great love of multiplayer games.

'Course the irnoy is that at the time I didn't have so much as a clue as to who half the characters on it were.
The Road goes ever on and on
Down from the door where it began.
Now far ahead the Road has gone
And I must follow, if I can,
Pursuing it with eager feet,
Until it joins some larger way
Where many paths and errands meet.
And whither then? I cannot say.

What I would like to see is a very good video game that has a good story and takes a VERY long time to beat.
I've had the feeling so many times, I just think, Aww, That's it?

Count me as another old-timer.

My first experiences with video games came because my grandfather owned a billiards hall, and he had 2 arcade machines: Pac-Man and Centipede. Oh, those were some fun Saturday afternoons.

As for consoles, my first was an Atari 2600 with that crappy version of Pac-Man.

Just play an old adventrue game and give up every time you get stuck, waiting years before reatempting.

Using this philosophy, I have squeezed almost ten years of life out of my Link's Awakening.

(Best. Adventure game. Ever.)

The cool part is it FEELS like a longer more epic quest just because each time you get back to playing it years have litterally past!
