My parents owned an atari 2600 before I was born, and when I was old enough to not break it, the would play pacman with me. I was barely old enough to remember that, like 3 going on 4. Christmas of 1989, got my nintendo. My parents fell in love with tetris and later dr. mario, but I was zelda and smb. Course tbrough them I learned how to play and got pretty good at tetris too, but meh this isn't puzzlegamefan. My first rpg experience was iirf princess tomato on salad island or some shit like that, which needless to say, I didn't understand at 4 years old, and one day rentals from our local video store meant I played for 10 minutes and my dad took it back. Next time I tried an rpg was 4 years later, and it was Final Fantasy (not vii like you hipster weenies trying to jump on the bandwagon) III though more commonly known now as VI. Though I was still sort of shit at it, it cemented my love of rpgs for life. The first rpg that I beat, which probably was the reason I will always remember and desire rpgs based on the famous plumber, was super mario rpg. Memories....ahhh.
