Your Childhood Obsession

Do you recall all the wasted hours on the games and consoles of the past? Everything from the first Playstation and the Nintendo 64 to the NES and the Dreamcast is fair "game" here.

Please forgive the lame pun.

Your Childhood Obsession

Postby McMurphy » Tue Dec 01, 2009 3:01 pm

When I play online against opponents who happen to by kids, it is a sometimes rude reminder of just how obsessive I was at that age. There were just some games that I refused to put away. The giant in my galaxy of childhood obsessions was Super Mario Bros. 3.

I played that game to death. I remember my father being upset that I beat the game the day after Christmas. Little did he understand the inclusion of warp whistles. They allowed me the badge of conquering the game, yet the luxury of combing every stage I skipped for, what seemed at the time, infinite possibilities for secrets. I really do believe I left that game without a mushroom untouched.

How about you? What was your childhood game obsession?

To this day I still love looking back on my glory days where I spent countless hours flicking boogers and farting on enemies ahead. I cant begin to tell you how awesome this game was and how obsessed I was with it. I remember me and my brother played it for 8 hours straight while sitting in a hotel room(we always brought our sega genesis out of town so we could geek out). This game is called......BoogerMan!

As you can see above you had to be 13 years of age or older to buy it and or play it......luckily for me my mom didnt know that there were ratings for video games so she gave it to us for christmas :D

I was a big Ninja Turtle fan, so it's no shocker that the TMNT: The hyperstone heist was my obsession, the below image shows my favorite level of the game. I did like the other TMNT titles for NES and SNES but this was the best one.

Mine was River Raid, if that tells you my age.
I played it for days at a time with Black Sabbath playing in the background.
