Well it's time to get down to some serious shit people. What's the most nostalgic thin you can remember about gaming when you were young? Whenever I play a PsOne game and hear that boot up sound I always get chills down my spine. So what's yours?

That moment when I beat the Elite four in Pokemon Gold. I was so proud of myself. That was until I found out all my friends had beat it before me.

The manta ray and the t-rex 3D things from the demo disk. Now those were incredible.

Nostalgic eh?! I would definitely have to say seeing Shigeru Miyamoto on heaps of CRT's around Best Buy and seeing him play Super Mario 64 and saying how Mario has improved. Oh boy and that trailer for all the titles in the making.

World 7 Super Mario World for sure. The music that animation of Bowser floating in the sky. The good old days when you and your best friend would eat pizza for dinner and tackle down this game.

The Most Nostalgic memory I have ever gotten was when I first ever played a video game ever.

I remember it vividly, it was 1996; I was 3-4 years old at the time and was FAR from the usual age to play video games, but I was what you would call a "Smart Kid".

My brother just opened up a Christmas Present on Christmas, if I remember correctly it was from my Grandmother and she gave the console to me and my brother; I didn't really know exactly what was going on at the time, I just woke up and 5 minutes later they hooked the damn thing up and I was blown away by the Console itself.

I sat there and watch Mario do all these crazy stuff that my brother was getting him to do, but I didn't know that so I just went back to my presents.

a couple days later I decided I should play Super Mario 64 as well, when I played it, I had no idea what I was doing. To this day it still remains my all time favorite game.

Quite a few. I started to play pic related and remembered how much fun I had with it, I was about 10 when it came out. I also remembered fucking around with the buttons and d-pad on the game boy color start up screen and changing the colors in regular game boy games.
Although I never owned a PS1, that boot sound brings me such good memories of my friends who had it (I was more of a Nintendo kid) every weekend we would go to some guy's house and play Marvel vs Capcom.

>>1925187
Mine would be when I was 7 and I played and finished Donkey Kong Country for SNES. But in the game there is a song for cave levels and in the music there's an echo of the music and it made me feel like I was in that cave.Also in the music there's a sort of choir tune which is amazing for a SNES game. So I will always have fond memories of that game.

I was born in 1992 I still remember coming home from school and seeing my dad at home.(He was a office man) I remember seeing him picking up the box and saying "Merry Christmas Connor." Me and him play Super Mario 64, Banjo Kazooie together and finish them. Took about a half a year to finish both games but oh damn them memories. Then getting Super Smash Bros. and Mario Kart 64 and Mario Party 2 and Ocarina of Time few years later. My father always tried to get many N64 games cause he really loved the N64. Anyway me and him played so much Super Smash Bros. and Goldeneye multiplayer that to this day we still laugh when we talk about the N64.

Playing my Nintendo 64 with my mom and dad. I had played my friend's SNES, NES, and Genesis for years but I hadn't actually owned a system until Christmas of 1997.

My mom fell in love with Super Mario 64. She would play it for hours. She was hilarious though, because she would hold the control stick between her left thumb and index finger and play that way. She got about 50 stars before eventually quitting and she never played again. I often wonder what it would be like to watch her play again.

My dad's favorite game though was Star Wars Shadows of the Empire. I can still remember him bartering with my mom for us to stay up for just a little longer to play the game. I distinctly remember getting stuck in the sewer level for months, and when we finally beat it and made it to Xizor's it was a moment of pure joy.

Fucking great times, man.

Are you me?
I remember the very first time I saw a SNES was at my friend's place and he'd show me the secret passage on donut plains that leads to bowser's valley as seen on your pic.
The rocking music, the flashy graphics with bowser's big castle and him flying avobe it, it was too cool.

First room in the never hood from the demo (The demo disc that came with windows 95.) It was at least ten years later that i got a hold of the full game, and man was it worth it. One of a kind.

Same, and I've never even owned one.

The file select and opening scene in Mario 64. The music, the look, the sound effects. I think I remember seeing it for the first time.

Super Star Wars dang hard never got to finish Anew Hoper or The Return of the Jedi but I finished The Empire Strikes Back. My father loved star wars and these games but he said that it's diffucult for gamers to play. I have to agree with him there but hey it's still a master piece to me.

Going down to visit my cousins every summer. I had games they never played, and they had games I never played. It was a blast. Some of them had N64, some of them had PS1, some of them had Saturn (and later on some of them had Dreamcast and Xbox which I never got). We would play games pretty much all day.

My cousins are what got me into Sonic 2, Mega Man X, Street Fighter, Banjo-Kazooie, Crash Bandicoot, just about half of the games I play today. Are tastes aren't really the same anymore as I've become more casual, but they're still fun.

I grew up with these too. Empire is the hardest of the trilogy.

One of my oldest childhood memories was getting stuck on the giant Wampa boss because it scared the living shit out of my 5 year old self.

I'm not really nostalgic about video games due to emulators ensuring that I'd be able to play even the oldest of them forever.
