I've been involved with Nintendojo since 2000, one way or another. I've been a fan of Nintendo games since 1985. Whooooaaa... OLLLLD!
I actually love video games on all systems... I got started on Atari. I remember how alien NES's "control pad" initially seemed compared to a joystick... "Left hand for character movement instead of right? Right hand for button pressing instead of left? Zuh-wah?"
I graduated to NES thanks to one of the coolest gifts a grandparent could get you, and my undying love for Mario started there (yes, he's way cooler than Link). I also got into PC adventure games as a kid (King's Quest, Gabriel Knight, Maniac Mansion, Loom, etc.). My fervent devotion to Castlevania and Final Fantasy is what made me break my fanboy exclusivity agreement with Nintendo post-SNES, so I got a PlayStation, and since then I've owned every Nintendo system (except B/W GB, VB and DSi), as well as PS1, PS2, Dreamcast, Xbox and Xbox 360. I also now like PVP, RTS and MMO PC games. Yep... I'm as much of a gaming geek you may find round here, though some of my Nintendojo compatriots school me in other areas.
My favorite Nintendo console is probably the sixty-foooouuuurrr, and my favorite handheld is definitely the DS Lite (I have two-- hence my reticence to get a DSi when 3DS is oh-so-close). I also love my Death Star gaming PC and my 360. But Nintendo's my first love. Awww...
