Topic: What is your first game purchase ?

Posts 21 to 32 of 32


Nintendo DS: Dementium II
Wii: Xenoblade Chronicles
3DS: Dead or Alive: Dimensions
Wii U: Nintendo Land (it's a pack-in, but I'm counting it)
Switch: Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

This isn't something I really pay attention too. I probably purchased games before working in 2011, but I don't remember that for certain. I think Metroid: Other M is the first game I bought from my own money (card/gift money then), while Metroid Prime Trilogy was bought for me. I had both releases reserved/pre-ordered, so both at least had $5 invested.

"The secret to ultimate power lies in the Alimbic Cluster."


DS: The Urbz: Sims in the City (and Metroid Prime Hunters: First Hunt, if that counts). Couldn’t afford anything else. Bought circa June 2005 shortly after the Australian launch.

Wii: The Sims 2: Pets, Bully: Scholarship Edition, The Godfather: Blackhand Edition, The Sims 2: Castaway (these were all bought before I actually bought the Wii as I was anticipating a holiday sale/bundle), and when eventually picking up the console, Wii Sports (obviously) and Animal Crossing: Let’s Go To The City. Console purchased in late 2008, so, I had quite a bit of catching up to do.

3DS: Super Street Fighter IV, The Sims 3, Nintendogs + Cats : Toy Poodle and New Friends. Bought on launch day.

Wii U: Nintendo Land, New Super Mario Bros. U. Bought on launch day.

Switch: The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, 1-2 Switch (what a dichotomy!). Bought on launch weekend.

I never had the N64 unfortunately, yet my brother got one for christmas 2 years after it launched with Diddy Kong Racing + 1080 Snowboarding. My N64 'first' was a mario 64 Kiosk(Mind forever blown) at my local PNE Playland, followed up with plenty of hours playing it at friends right after it's launch, but never owned any of the games myself until my mid to late 20's.

Never had the original Gameboy Either, but have fond memories playing it in 1990 and onwards at one of my friends. Either Super Mario Land or Kirby's dreamland was my first. Man, that guys basement was like some wondrous videogame, boardgame, action figure/toy, comic book, movie/TV haven. good times.

@Anti-Matter Why are you taking offense, there not talking about you, they made a grammar error, hence why, English is stupid lol, it just a joke.

Nintendo are like woman, You love them for whats on the inside, not the outside.

(My friend code is SW-7322-1645-6323, please ask me before you use it) Remind me to ask jump about those ninja skills of his.



Now, now, we don't know if anyone was taking offence or just joking themselves but, just to be absolutely clear on the matter, English is a stupid language.

Any language where its own rules suggest the name of the language should be spelt 'Inglish' but it is instead spelt 'English' is obviously beyond stupid.

What better way to celebrate than firing something out of the pipe?

Nothing is true. Everything is permitted.
