Who Remembers Their First Gaming Experience?

This Tuesday was a very important day. It was the first day my 1 and a-half-year-old son played his first video game.

The game? Wii Sports baseball. And by playing he held the Wii Remote and kinda swung his arm. My older son doesn't really play that many video games instead, he likes to fold paper and play with LEGO. But when he does, Wii Sports is something he likes to play. And now something he can play with his little brother.

Say what you will about the Wii. When you're a 1 year-old, flailing about makes for a delightful gaming experience. Watching your child fail [sic] about with a Wii Remote, even more so.

I don't really remember my first gaming experience. As a kid, I do remember the Magnavox Odyssey and Pong. My cousin had an Atari 2600, and I still have very vivid memories playing that. But I don't quite remember which was first. You know, that exact moment in which I became exposed to video games.

I'll never forget, though, when my youngest son did.

You should probably put that in quotes, for a second I thought you were talking about yourself.

Re: Who Remembers Their First Gaming Experience?

I do.

Dec. 25th, 1992. My parent's somehow (we were really poor back then) managed to afford a Super Nintendo. Super Mario World was free with the machine and my parents also bought Super Mario Kart. I still have them today. Awesome.

Re: Who Remembers Their First Gaming Experience?

It's all a scattered mess of memories. I believe my first game was Smb 3 on Nes or Smw on Snes. My brothers said I was a good 3 year old mario player... Or maybe it was 2 years old

Best early memory I have is Christmas '98 when me and my bros got an N64. My oldest brother got NHL 99, my other older brother got Cruis'n USA and I got a Red controller, but I remember being so amazed by Cruis'n USA.

Re: Who Remembers Their First Gaming Experience?

My dad, or mom, had an Intellivision when I was little, so I remember the tank game, one with a balloon and a couple of planes, and maybe one about basketball. Then someone got me (me because obviously I claimed it as mine) a nes, with Mario Bros. and Duckhunt. Also, I'd stand in front of the tv... (in front means with the gun touching the tv) so that I could hit the ducks because I couldn't aim properly.

I remember around Christmas, for a Mexican festivity involving the three wise men, I got Bart VS the World. I NEVER got past the second level. I knew the pirate ship back and forth, I could find answer correctly every question about the Simpsons, but I could never get past the second level.

I think my dad still has the intellevision and I still have my nes

Re: Who Remembers Their First Gaming Experience?

Cruis'n USA IS an amazing game. I bought it for the VC after my bro pawned it and it's much better with the GC control stick, I can actually get to the third and fourth coats of paint now. Except with the bus.

Re: Who Remembers Their First Gaming Experience?

I vaguely remember playing really basic games(like that dueling tanks game) I think it was on commodore64. I might've played Quix first but it's kind of a blur.

Oops I made a typo. I know full well how it's spelled, I've literally been playing it since before you were born. Hell I was a senior in high school when you had your first gaming experience, thanks for making me feel even older

That's awesome.

My first game was Donkey Kong on the Atari 2600. Strangely, the first Coin-Op game I ever played was oddly Donkey Kong too. I was at a restaurant in Chorpus Christi, Texas (Ponchos) in the 80's, and I had a quarter, so I played. Donkey Kong has mildly obsessed me since. I even watched the Donkey Kong cartoon in the early 80's (crap I'm old!).

Otherwise, another milestone was playing Super Mario Bros on the original NES. By the way, does anyone know which version had green Goombas? I remember playing that one is a bunch of stores prior to having it at home.

Paper Mario.

Quote:
Originally Posted by Mario Wiki
Goombas were a staple of Bowser's army during his attempt to take the Mushroom Kingdom with the power of the Star Rod in the game Paper Mario. In fact, many varieties of Goombas aided the Koopa King. Goomboss (this time named the Goomba King) returned, commanding a large group of Goombas that resided in Goomba Road, the pathway between Goomba Village and Toad Town. Besides regular Goombas, the Goomba King controlled a large number of Paragoombas and Spiky Goombas, Goombas that wore spiked helmets to counter Mario's jumping ability. The Goomba King's two loyal henchmen, Red Goomba and Blue Goomba, appeared in the game as well. A new sub-species of Goomba, known as the Gloomba, was also introduced. These dark Goombas lived underground, and also had Paragloomba and Spiky Gloomba relatives. Hyper Goombas, green-colored Goombas similar to the Gu Goombas, were first seen in this game. These powerful Goombas could charge their attack power, and were a major threat to Mario. Again, Hyper Goombas had a Hyper Paragoomba and a Hyper Spiky Goomba variant.
The regular brown Goombas of Paper Mario behaved similarly to their counterparts in Super Mario 64. These bad mushrooms would patrol a small area, and upon seeing Mario, would charge at the plumber. In battle, Goombas attacked by using the "Headbonk" technique. The mushroom would jump in the air, then dive into Mario, bonking its head against the hero's. This attack could be blocked by defending just as the Goomba's head touched Mario. If struck by the attack, Mario would take one HP of damage. At the beginning of the game, it requires two stomps or two Hammer strikes to defeat a Goomba (as Goombas only have two HP). However, after Mario learns how to use Action Commands, the plumber only needed one timed attack to defeat one of these bad mushrooms.
Although Goombas were normally fought at the beginning of the game, one Goomba could be fought much later than expected. At one point, Bowser asked Princess Peach what Mario fears most. One of Peach's choices was "A Goomba", and if she picked this, Kammy Koopa would warp a Goomba to Shy Guy's Toy Box. Although Kammy expressed doubt that the Goomba would scare Mario away, she left the fungus in charge of defending a vital Treasure Box anyways. When Mario eventually arrived, the Goomba became very scared, and was quickly defeated by the powerful plumber.
Despite the large number of Goombas loyal to the Koopa Troop, Paper Mario notably features the first community of peaceful Goombas. These Goombas did not wage war against the Mushroom Kingdom; they were a part of it. In fact, this Goomba community was instrumental in defeating King Bowser and liberating the Mushroom Kingdom. It was the family of Goombas (composed of Goompa, Gooma, Goompapa, Goomama, Goombaria, and Goombario) living in peaceful Goomba Village that first discovered Mario's near-lifeless body after the hero's initial defeat at the hands of Bowser. These friendly Goombas nursed Mario back to full strength, and provided the plumber with a Hammer to fight the soldiers of the Koopa Troop. The family also allowed Mario to take Goomnuts from their village; these nuts could be used by Mario to recover his FP. Goombario, a young Goomba and personal admirer of Mario, even joined the hero on his adventure. The young Goomba's Tattle ability was extremely valuable, as he provided hints on how to defeat certain enemies. With Goombario's (among others) help, Mario was able to defeat Bowser and save the Mushroom Kingdom.
