I'm not sure what I was doing when my grandma called me upstairs as a little girl. I climbed up the stairs and there were my parents and my grandma, smiling the biggest smiles. There was a brand new Intellivision all set up for playing. I couldn't believe it. I started playing and it was over. I was a gamer.
My dad and I would challenge each other on our favorite game, Burgertime. He'd get off work and the first thing I would tell him was how I had beaten the current high score. It was so much fun playing it together! The objective is to hurry up and walk over items on a hamburger to make them drop down to form complete burgers below. We would say, "Watch out!" to psych each other out. Salt was your weapon to kill the little guys trying to kill you. It was fun.
I've always had a system. I think it goes Nintendo, Super Nintendo, Gameboy, Dreamcast, Playstation 2 and Gamecube. I don't think I ever owned a Sega. Currently I have a PS2, an XBOX 360 (won it at work last year and I almost fainted) and a DS Lite. I've gotten back into the game playing Gears of War on the XBOX and I have Raul training his brain along with me on Brain Age 2 for the DS.
I'm going to get back to Brain Age 2, my brain isn't 80 years old anymore, now it's 62! The game is working ;)
