I grew up with an Amiga in the house - we had an A500 with an external hard drive expansion, which was then replaced with an A2000 and, eventually, an A1200 - but my first games console, the first system I had to call my very own, was the old chunky Game Boy. It came with four games - Tetris, Super Mario Land, Kick Off, and Tennis. Someone stole my copy of Kick Off, and I’d probably have been more cut up about it if I actually liked the bloody thing, but I eventually got Capcom’s Darkwing Duck, which is easily the best Mega Man game ever made.
My first home console was the Super Nintendo. We got ours the year Super Mario All-Stars came out, and we got it with Super Bomberman and Another World. My dad immediately wanted to start renting games for it, so he picked up The Lawnmower Man while my sister and I got The Lion King and Mortal Kombat II respectively. We played ‘em for a week, then had to return them. I wouldn’t play Mortal Kombat II again until 1997 when I’d be given a copy for the Amiga.
What were your first consoles?
