I wish my first Zelda game had been A Link to the Past. That would've gotten me hooked on Zelda instantly. I didn't think much of the first game.

A N64!!!! All I had was my Genesis and Game Boy Color. And the N64 was the coolest thing around. I never got it. Then I got a Gamecube. Since then Ive been Nintendo only owner. I used to have Sonic and Sonic 2. I didnt know how popular they would become :)

Too many before the time I turned a teen.

A Sega Master System, nes, Atari Lynx and a Tg-16. I didn't get a Nes before I turned 13 years old and I bought a Sms when I attended a technical college. I bought myself a TG-16 8 months before the vc existed.

For some reason I always wanted Time Lord really bad because I liked the box art.

I've been wanting to get a Super Nintendo & a copy of Earthbound when I was 9. I didn't get a Super Nintendo until 3 years later in 2006.

When I was a much younger kid which was around 7-8 years old, I wished I had Paper Mario, Snowboard Kids 2, Kirby 64, Dead or Alive 2, & Capcom vs. SNK: Milennium Fight 2000. I now have these games for a few years except for Capcom vs. SNK.

A whole crapton of NES games and about a half-crapton of SNES games. It'd take me a while to make a list, so this'll have to do.

I wish I had Earthbound, so that I could never open it and sell it to some poor sap for $250. I've never been a big fan. DEFINITELY not so big a fan as to throw away $250. Now, Ocarina of Time...that's another story.

Straight from the PhoenixSage Dictionary of Awesome (But Made-Up) Terms:

crapton: 1. A vague, undefined, but astronimically large figure. 2. The amount of dung required to weigh a ton.

First definition, if you will, MetalMario, not the second. :D

Well, I don't so much wish I had any games anymore, because this summer I spent a "crapton" of money and finally bought all the things I've wanted for so long but never got to have as a kid because my parents loathe video games. A Nintendo, Super Nintendo, and PS2, and a crapton of games. that's a lot of moneys I just spent.

At the moment, you can purchase this dictionary nowhere. There is a very good reason for this: the dictionary is contained solely inside my brain, and I'm not about to chop of my head so that someone can have a dictionary of awesome (but completely made-up) words. Someday, I will type this dictionary up; until then, no dice.

I'd be happy to, Gabe, and you will probably regret it. :D

@GabeGreens: I wish I'd had an N64 as a kid too. I didn't like the analog stick (too used to D-pads), so I got a Playstation instead. While I did like GT, Spyro, and Crash, the Playstation and its successor didn't impress me much. I got an N64 in 2007, and I love it.

One strange problem I had was being completely oblivious to many video games. My parents bought me all my games early on, so I have no idea how I got some of my games (Marble Madness?). If I'd been in charge, and had a subscription to Nintendo Power, things would've been far different. I'd probably have gotten all the major NES titles, SNES titles, and so on.

A 64. I wouldn't have been able to really play it (would of been 2 or 3) but I don't care. Otherwise, Wind Waker.
