Donkey Kong Jr. and Super Mario Bros. were the first games I played. I went to my friends house one time and saw him staring at his TV screen like a zombie and I was like "hey, watcha do-EXPLOSION I was instantly transported. Zombified in a matter of seconds. The most amazing experience of my life and it's the very reason why I'm here today, on this website. Nintendo made me teh nutzors.
Mine was SMB also, but I wasn't hooked till The Legend of Zelda. Discovering the game map in a Nintendo Power, which I didn't even know existed at the time, was, as far as I can recall, the most exciting discovery of my life. Not even the discovery of porn could incite such joy and unbridled enthusiasm.
