This post has been a long time coming. I don't talk about video games much because i never imagined many people would enjoy or even read it. But I'm at a place in my blog where i couldn't give a shit if anybody did or didn't. I'm just happy to rant and yap about anything til my heart's content. Video Games have had a special place in my heart since i was very young, having an older brother helped with this and I'm forever grateful i was introduced so early.
My early memories included a Nintendo 64 and endless hours on The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. I never truly understood the game as a young girl, but for years and years i was obsessed with Links adventures to save Princess Zelda. Still to this day is a favourite video game of mine, chuffed to know it was later released on Nintendo 3DS which i now treasure.
Also within that period as a youngster, the Sega Mega Drive was a huge console. Sonic the Hedgehog, Mortal Kombat and Street Fighter. Constantly battling with my brother, he definitely brought the competitiveness out of me, and competitive i am.
Next was the Gameboy. That amazing piece of technology which allowed you to go ANYWHERE and enabled you to still play video games with the help of plenty of batteries. Genius. From other Zelda games to Pokemon, it's safe to say my Green Gameboy Colour went everywhere with me.
Another hand held genius piece of history was the Tamagotchi. The simplest game, yet sometimes impossible to keep your little guy alive. Too much poop? Dead. This little device was a HUGE commitment, i'm talking day and night care here.
Later moving onto the almighty Playstation One. Which took up a huge chunk of my entire childhood and pretty much my teenage years too. Games like Crash Bandicoot and Spyro the Dragon stole my heart, i can't tell you how many times I've completed the series they both had and how i'd kill to play them again.
I've probably missed out so many games, but these stood out to me most and are the ones i remember playing like it was yesterday.
What video games did you play as a kid?
