Love at first sight


Now I cannot deny that my wife is my true love. I cannot stress that enough...especially if she is reading this. But my first love, will always be the gaming world.

Im 25, and although I dont remember Atari, and Commodore (the games or the band), I do rememember one one thing, the Mega Drive II. It was my uncle who I first remember having a Mega Drive, and of course he had Sonic. I only saw him once or year or so, and even then, gaming wasnt important to adults, so I wasnt allowed near it when we did go round.

Luckily for me, Greg the guy across the street had managed to get his hands on a Mega Drive II. I dont really know what the difference between 1 and 2 was, I believe that 2 had red buttons?....anyway....gaming was now a lot closer and a lot more accessable. We would play Sonic 2 until he got bored, but I just couldnt get enough. I begged and begged Santa to let me have a game all to myself, and Xmas '96 was when the magic began.

I received my Mega Drive II, I had Sonic 2 which I would play with my sister, winning every single time.  I also had a 6 in 1 game, with classics like italia 90, golden axe and a game like bejewelled of which the name slips my mind, but it was basically bejewelled.

I had seen my first glimps of heaven
