Game related Christmas Story Thread

Yes its December, here's a thread for your game related christmas memories. It might be the first game or console you recieved for Christmas or a game you played nonstop through boxing day.

One Christmas in the mid- 80's young Elrod21 had asked Santa for Xevious for NES. On an evening shortly before Christmas, Elrods parents went out for the evening. Elrod noticed one of the presents under the tree had a distinctive shape he had seen before. Would he actually peak just to make sure it was what he had asked for? Whats the harm in a small tear. Sure enough Xevious was the contents of the gift. Well......his parents were going to be gone a few hours....hmmmm...... He wouldn't!!!!!

Elrod opened the game, plugged it in, played it until he finished it and had it re-wrapped under the tree in time for mom and dads arrival. Watching him pretend to be excited opening it on Christmas morning was something I'll never forget.

Thunderlips, I think I found the video of what happened between you two just after Elrod beat Xevious.

Re: Game related Christmas Story Thread

I remember getting NBA JAM for the SNES for christmas from my grandmother. When I opened it up I found out to my horror that someone had already bought the game, took out the cart and replaced it with baseball cards, repackaged it and returned it to the store.

Re: Game related Christmas Story Thread

She said she returned it to the store and got a new one the next day. Later on in my years I've realized that the store most likely would not have taken it back and she must have bought me a second one. It's too bad that I never got the chance to properly thank her and my grandfather for all they did for me when I was a kid.

I'm sure the joy they brought you was worth having to buy that game all over again.

Re: Game related Christmas Story Thread

Elrod you had balls.

I've told this one before but whatever:

All I wanted for christmas was Zelda 2: The adventures of Link, so before christmas I had been eyeballing that familiar shaped box, then I got to thinking... "Wait.. what if it's not Link, and instead another game..?" Eventually I snapped, I needed to take a peek, so I gently tore back the paper a bit looking for that gold box... Low and behold it was gold!!! Finally christmas arrives and I rip into the present only to find:

Re: Game related Christmas Story Thread

I remember asking for Mega Man X 2 for Christmas one year and opening stuff Christmas morning I got Mega Man 2 and I was disappointed. It did introduce me to original Megaman so that was good.

Remember when Pokemon was in full swing and I wanted Pokemon Blue. One year my Dad actually got something. got Pokemon cards and then.. Pokemon Red and my brother got Blue. We traded and he returned Red since I already had it.

I'm sorry but this made me laugh a bit.


I remember when my brothers and I had been bugging our parents for the NES for years. I thought we would never get it. But then, one night, I heard a sound coming from my older brother's room. I could hear the bed creaking and so I took a quick peak from a crack between the door and the wall. What I saw got me so excited. That's right! I saw my brother playing on an NES! The sneaky bastard was playing OUR NES two weeks before Christmas and never told me! But it's ok. I found out where my parents were hiding it. I started playing it while making sure my parents nor my brothers found out. On Christmas Day, we opened our NES and could finally play it out in the open without fear of being caught.

I don't recall if he knew about it, but I know I didn't tell him about it since I thought he might blow my cover. And no, Preach is not the eldest. He's the youngest of three.

Re: Game related Christmas Story Thread

I got Atari 2600 games for a few years there {like maybe one or two per year} and was really exited to have them.
This was way back in the 80's.

My favorites were Yars' Revenge:
Yars Revenge Atari 2600
,
Berserk:
Berzerk Atari 2600
,
and Space Invaders:

Space Invaders was an atrocity.

No, Atari 2600 version of Pac Man was the real abomination.

I believe I've said before how I felt bad that my parents had spent their hard - earned money to buy it for me.
{you know it's gotta be bad when a kid starts thinking of it in financial terms}
Pac Man Atari 2600


I don't think anything conjured up such feelings of disappointment in me during my entire life.
This is it, the biggest let - down there ever was: Atari 2600 Pac Man.

Re: Game related Christmas Story Thread

I agree with Ten, in fact I find space invaders to be highly over-rated, despite it's impact historically. The game was just too slow, that coupled with the limit of one on screen shot at a time made it a chore to play.
