|Me eating another Odyssey II. I can't help it; those things are delicious|
I distinctly remember spending hours locked away in his poorly lit bedroom playing Super Mario Brothers, Adventures of Bayou Billy, and T&C Surf Designs on a 13" television. This was incredible for a first grader back in 1988. Today, that'd be pretty sad.
Soon after, it occurred to me that every kid in the neighborhood had a Nintendo except for me. Aaron Husted had one, Arnold and Jimmy had one, Nick Cortis across the street played his on a ridiculous movie projector, and hell, the kid down the street with the awesome tree house had three Nintendos. Three!

You're talking to the footbag champ of 1990.
Now that I think about it, I wish people would call me "Mr. Nintendo."
So that's my story. What's yours? I'd love to hear your about your earliest gaming memories. Leave a comment below!
