2. My Gaming started back in sept 19th 1990, on my 12th birthday. I
can remember it like it was yesterday....( Cue Dream Sequence).
I awoke just like any other day, I was not sure what my parents bought me, but in the back of my mind i knew it was something special, the air was fresher, every sound was more clear, my toothpaste actually "tasted good!"? I was 12 remember!.
I could not wait to open my b-day gift,s. All day i was like a bionic boy running and jumping around. I had no clue what fate's behold me and my life from then on out, Until i open my present's.
1.(Record Breakers) Sweet!, Little cars you could upgrade and race on track's, Thanks mom/dad i screamed!, present #
2. "What is this box"? i thought to myself, is it "Legos", Is it a "model" as i shook the box some more. the box was large and was heavy. "Oh well" i couldn't guess, so i "ripped open the paper to find..... drum roll please...... "Hero quest"
what is this game?, i thought to myself, wow, it look's awesome!, how did my mom know i liked fantasy stuff?, well I played Zelda, final fantasy, read comics so she made an educated guess and i was oblivious to that fact, and boy was she right! loved that game!. So a long story short, on and off only recently joining bgg and finding all these great games since 1990.
My all time fav, (Axis and Allies with the Xeno World At War exp.) It's not the game per say it was the feeling, I love a-n-a don't get me wrong!, but I was 16-17, playing with my buddies, talking smack, getting mad at the dice rolls, talking smack, getting mad at my buddies, it was a great time!.
It's that feeling I'm searching for in a game, Something that brings you back for more and have new memories!, especially with the wife!
My fav 80's toys as a kid were Gi Joe's, Star wars, muscle men, Thunder cats,Army ants ,G.U.T.Z, He man, Transformers, Go bots, Voltron, Lazer tag, Tmnt,
My favorite 80's toys now= same I'm a big kid at heart!
