i admit i'm was a horrendous bungie fanatic from the age of godknowswhat and (ignoring destiny and whatever happened to halo) i am desperately excited for Marathon 4 even thought it's probably going to be a shocking stretch based on the lore of the previous ghems.
but i probably played something like loderunner or blobbo first, and i have a serious memory of my sibling introducing my to tomb raider and me thinking "I thought this was a dude's game" as the hardcore title had me confused.
I cut my teeth on my older brother's NES system which was gathering dust while he was off to college. So it was Zelda, Metroid, Blaster Master and Castlevania. When I finished college my dad gave his old PC and I bought Diablo, Divine Divinity and Lords of the Realm. I started saving for a new PC right then and there. I didn't get heavy into gaming till after college.
