After the last podcast I just did with Markus, it got me thinking that we should go back to the classic. The talk about Pokemon going back to Generation One (Red,Blue and Yellow) and Two (Gold,Silver and Crystal) as Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time and then, I got the idea to play Super Mario Bros. 3 on the NES. I have to say it was a great reminder of my childhood and well I have to say I have to get back to game from my childhood. It brough back memories, when titles like Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time 3DS came out, I was thrilled just as I was with Pokemon Black and White; it brought back something that Generation 3 and 4 Pokemon games lacked for me. The thrill of the new people discovering new Pokemon games and new team like I was a kid. The rush it gave me was something I can’t describe.
Today is just a day where I felt like a kid again and not what I am now. I enjoy games like Gears of War and Mass Effect but I can never forget what games started it for me like Super Mario Bros. 3 which if I remember correctly could be my first game ever. The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time on the N64 is my favourite by far.
We all have these memories, the classic star music, chasing the mushroom or 1up only to have it fall into the hole. It just takes us back to simpler times to escape the hardship of our lives now. I will close with saying we can never forget what got us into gaming, you know what started it for me (Super Mario Bros 3, Pokemon Red or Legend Zelda Ocarina of Time). So I end my post with this; what was your first game and your favourite childhood game?
