    A few of my favorite video game experiences are.

    1.) Having to look up the Codec code for Metal Gear Solid 2 on the outside of the game cartridge. There were several other moments during the game that played with your sanity and made you think it was more than just a game.

    2.) The first time I grabbed the yellow cap in Super Mario Brothers 3.

    3.) The first time I beat M Bison in Street Fighter 2.

    I’ll go recent with mine, my favorite as of late is watching my boys play Minecraft. I love watching them learn how to build, then evolve their skills over time as they started with just random placing of doors and blocks and then evolved their building skills to the point that their layouts are now well thought out, their buildings now have windows, multiple rooms and floors, etc. I get to watch them learn and grow while they have fun.

    I think for many of us our favorites moments will come from our childhood. 2 memories pop to my mind with that question.

    First, would be me waking up every morning around 6 – 7 AM. Running to my parents bedroom. To wake up my fathers so we could play our NES together. He would usually play with me for a while, then lay on the couch and let me play. For months, I would play while he would watch. Till I finally realized that he was actually sleeping the whole time and mumbling thing when I was talking to him :p

    Another one would be, me and my brother in the quest to finish Super Marios Bros. 3 After severals hours of playing it, we were reaching the end. Our hope all high of finally finishing this game, we then get interrupted because it is time to go eat ( we were going out that night ). Because you couldn’t save with a NES, we just let the game on Pause… Several hours, when we came back. We were greeted to the screen of our NES, frozen. The whole system had crashed on us. We had to get a replacement for it and to this day, I never reached the end of that game lol.

    That’s it for me !

  4. Greg Vedders says:

    I used to play a game very similar to Wreck-It Ralph growing up. It was Beauty and the Beast where you had to scale the side of a building to rescue someone. You had to avoid opening and closing windows, as well as birds and other obstacles. Wreck-It Ralph’s game on the iPad and iPhone brings back fond memories of my time playing on the Intellivision.

  5. Greg Chafin says:

    My favorite experience would have to be the first time I ever played Super Mario 64, holding that weird controller for the first time and yet having it feel so right. And seeing the impressive way how I could move Mario around in 360 degrees. The game was so immersive and seeing how amazing the level of detail was(for the times). And how it was such a true leap forward for connecting the player to the game and having the game come alive before my very eyes. It was a beautiful and wonderful time in the gaming industry, and I’ll never forget firing up the Nintendo 64 and seeing that spinning N for the first time followed by “Its-a me! Mario!” :)

  6. daniel says:

    When we finally were able to take custody of our oldest son (LOOONG story) he was in a lock down unit at the hospital and one of the evening routines was free time. We would visit in the evening and they had a Nintendo 64 with Super Mario 64 and Mario Kart 64. He didn’t know how to play either game, really, since he was only 5 year old. But we played with him and the following week when custody shifted and he came to live with us we got a Nintendo 64 with those two games. We never really got good at Super Mario 64, but my wife and I would play Mario Kart 64 for hours with him. Then after he went to bed the two of us would play.

  7. Josh says:

    My favorite video game memory is back in the late 80s, my brother and friends would gather together our TVs and Nintendo 8-bit consoles and have Super Mario Bros. races. Pizza, candy, good friends and Mario. Doesn’t get better than that!

    That, and up down up down left right left right B A. I will NEVER forget that.

  8. Kayla S says:

    I remember playing Lion King on the Sega Genesis! Such an awesome game…wish I still had it and the Sega Genesis! :)

  9. Josh Flowers says:

    When I first beat Super Mario Bros. I was so excited as it was the first video game I had ever beat.

  10. Bob Cobb says:

    My favorite video game experience was when I received my first nintendo 8 bit video game system. I got the chance to spend the whole summer night playing video games with friends including the amazing trio of Super Mario Brothers, Duck Hunt and World Class Track meet.

  11. Thanks for the contest! My favorite VG experience definitely has to be when I discovered the Monkey Island series of games back when I was in middle school. I fell in love with adventure and puzzle gaming then, and still love them now. :)

  12. Josh says:

    I used to love playing Elevator Action and Karate Champ at Doc Holiday’s arcade.

  13. Manuel Silva says:

    My favorite video game memory is when I was a kid in the early 90’s. Every day after school all the kids in my neighborhood would me up at the corner liquor store and play Street Fighter all afternoon. It got very intense we all wanted to be the Champion and not be defeated by no one. Those days were the best jajaja. A short time after came Nintendo at home and it was over. We took the competition from the arcade to home.

  14. Adam says:

    Finally beating Zelda: Ocarina of time on 64. It remains to me the single greatest video game ever created. Defined epic.

  15. Jason Hocker says:

    I remember my uncle introducing me to his Atari 2600. The television was a passive machine, where you would just watch it. Now I as a kid could control what was on the tv! I think the first game I played was pac-mam but that might not have been the very first game. That led to my parents buying an Apple IIc for me who began programming games at a young age and now I’m a software developer.

    Now most of my best video game moments are with friends playing games like Rock Band, but that’s more for the social interaction. Nothing can top that amazement I first experienced years ago. It blows my mind that I have better technology in my house than even Disney used years ago. Love playing Kinect Disneyland and just strolling around the park…

  16. Jonnie says:

    My favorite video game experience is spending hours playing Mario Party with my sons and husband.

  17. My fondest video game memory would have to be one christmas, when my brother brought his gamecube and Resident Evil 4 to the family gathering. The entire family, including my grandparents all sat around the TV and took turns playing and screaming as we watched whoever had the controller try their best to not die at the hands of the zombie hordes. It was a really intresting family bonding experience, and some of the most fun with games that I can remember.

  18. Christine says:

    Lora croft, I like the graphics and I like the adventure and you can go back to chapters and search for all the relics.
    Resident evil 4 and 5 are great games too and I like searching for the medallions and well slashing zombies is always fun.
    Thanks for the chance!

  19. Lloyd Murray says:

    Keystone Capers on the Atari 2600. I played it until I got the high score available for a prize via snail mail and a picture of the screen. I took 3 pictures, developed them, only to find out the camera would not take pictures of the TV. Uggh. Still love that game…

    can’t wait to see wreck-it ralph..

  20. My favorite video game experience memory is walking everyday after school to the corner market and competing with whoever at Ms. Pac-Man and Donkey Kong! Ahhh… childhood.

  21. Kara Walton says:

    The ONLY video game I EVER finished was Disney’s Tarzan: the Action game [on pc]. I don’t know if was the storyline, the music, -or just the fact that it was so easy even I could finish it- I played and completed that game probably ten times. I haven’t picked up another game since; however, completing Tarzan was my crowning achievement in the video game world.

  22. Katey says:

    I’m not great at video games, but I’ve always loved the old classics like Pac Man! Wreck-It Ralph seems like it’s very similar to that style of game, so it will probably make my list of favorites once I get the chance to play it.

    My little brother and I also really love to play Monopoly on the Wii together. Even though there’s a 15 year difference between us, it’s a game we can both enjoy. He likes to play Mario Kart with me, but that’s only because I’m terrible at it.

    Temple Run: Brave on my iPhone is also really fun- simple, so I can actually play it!

    (It’s my 23rd birthday on Saturday so you should totally pick me.)

  23. Helen says:

    I love to play Galaga!

  24. Lindsey D. says:

    I remember when Nintendo first came out and my brother and I sat on stools in front of the TV playing Duck Hunt all day.

  25. Danielle says:

    Watching my dad constantly try to beat my Tetris score when I was younger. Ten years later and he only recently just beat it!

  26. Catherine says:

    My favorite video game experience was playing Pong in the lobby of the Lakewood movie theater. It was simple, black & white and amazing.

  27. Brandon says:

    My favorite memory is having an “who could stay up the longest playing Super Mario Bros.” Contest on the NES with my dad.

  28. Stephanie B says:

    My favorite video game moment has to be winning Super Mario Bros. I played the game so often and when I finally won it felt like I accomplished something. I think I was seven when this happened.

  29. Pedro Hernandez says:

    One of my favorite gaming experiences was when I got my NES for the first time ever. It was Christmas Eve, and I woke up to go to the bathroom. When I go out of my room, I hear my parents laughing and some noise coming from the TV. I look up and call for them. I asked them what they were doing, and they told me that Santa had left the present behind and they were testing it to see if it worked. Being innocent and naive, I believed them and went back to bed. The next morning, knowing what to expect, I begin to play Super Mario Bros. on the NES, and I knew from that moment on that I would be a gamer for life.

  30. Chris Oliveira says:

    My favorite Video Game Moments are:
    1. In 1993 the 7th Guest was the first game I had ever gotten that truly drew me into its world. The puzzles were very difficult and the game was spooky as can be.
    2. Getting one of the very first Dreamcast Systems on 09-09-99 and being amazed at what it could do. Soul Caliber and Hydrothunder were arcade quality but at home! At the time it was so cutting edge. Super Monkey Ball and Crazy Taxi are still some of my all time favorite games.
    There are tons of other great memories and can’t wait to see the movie on Friday!

  31. Jason says:

    My favorite game moment is actually another game movie called The Wizard with Fred Savage, it caused me to remember the hours of playing super Mario 3 on the Nes, finding the warp whistles and generally having a good time.

  32. Matt says:

    My favorite video game experience was playing Final Fantasy XIII. Although, it does not have the best reputation and I admit it does get off to a slow start, I became absolutely entranced in that world and the characters. The story was captivating and the graphics & scenery were breathtaking! I not only finished the game, but also obtained a platinum trophy for completing all the tasks; a memory which will stay with me forever! It was 120 hours of my life and I cherished every second of it!

  33. Andrew Stege says:

    Of all the memories I have from playing video games, I think one that sticks out the most is playing the original Silent Hill video game.

    I’ve always been a night owl, and that’s when I would do most of my ‘serious’ gaming. I thought I’d be REAL smart and add to the ambiance of the game while playing it in a pitch dark room with only the television lighting the entire room. Boy was I wrong. As I got deeper and deeper into the game and I became totally invested in the storyline, the character, and the ‘horror aspect’ of it all, I began having to check the dark corners of the room and had to make sure the door was locked. It really had me questioning myself as the late night hours drew on. Soon enough I was setting up objects that would crash, bang, or make noise around the room so I didn’t have to keep checking on myself. It’s silly to think back on it now, but back then, I was hooked!

  34. Davin C Anderson says:

    I remember playing space invaders in the first days of video games. It was the start of a whole new world of games.

  35. Nick says:

    Playing the original Toy Story!

  36. Paul Rosales says:

    The best gaming experience was when MarioKart 64 came out and my friends and I would hold tournaments every Friday. We would race for the 1st half and then we would play battlemode for the rest of the night. I swear this game was the longest I’ve ever kept a video game in my library because it was just that fun. This was my best arcade gaming experience!

  37. Ramsey says:

    One of my favorite video game experiences was when I was dating my now husband. He had an old Super Nintendo and we would play Tetris Attack on it together. He would always beat me and I became obsessed with the game. One day I was sick so he brought over his Super Nintendo and hooked it up at my house. I played the game for like 5 days straight and now 9 years later I still beat him every time. Haha!

  38. Shemp DeYoung (@ShempGames) says:

    When I got my driver’s license, I got to take my little brother to movies and pizza and we would always spend some time playing arcade video games. I would play Kangaroo and he would play Donkey Kong.

  39. Bri says:

    I saved up all of my chore money to purchase Super Mario Bros. 3 for Nintendo. I felt so proud to own that game and I played it for hours at a time. I still have it, and now my kids play it on my original Nintendo. I love having the memories from my childhood spill over to my own children!

  40. Andrea says:

    My favorite memory was when we got the action pad thing for Nintendo (I can’t even remember what it’s called now) but it was the big mat you put on the floor and then you could run and jump on it. I remember playing it with my parents and thinking how cool it was to see them do it too!

  41. Kelly Smith says:

    We used to have a video game system at my grandparent’s house that hooked up directly to the television…this was way before we had a Nintendo at home. My little brother and I would play on that thing all the time while my grandparents competed with us. It was such fun! Recently, my grandfather died, and we found the old system up in the attic….hooked it up for old times sake in memory of him. :)

  42. Connor says:

    I loved waiting for Halo 2 to come out at midnight and playing it all night and beating it school the next morning!

  43. I really enjoyed the Disney Dance pad that turned Disney songs into contemporary disco ones.

  44. Amina says:

    Favorite childhood video game? Hands down, Super Mario Kart. I never owned a video game console myself when I was little but my cousins did and every time my brother and I went over to their house we would always play. I lost most of the time. But I blame the fact that I was the youngest!

    Sigh. Good times… I was always Yoshi :)

  45. Beverly Farmer says:

    Actually I am a video game lamo so I don’t play many games. Pretty much the only game I didn’t suck at or lose all the time was Tetris.

  46. Laura says:

    My favorite video game experience was finally beating the old Super Smash Bros game for the GameCube

  47. Julie R says:

    My favorite game experiences are the times when I was young and played at Chuck E. Cheese (when it was all about Centipdede and Frogger for me)! A close second is when they brought Flynn’s arcade to California Adventure, especially the night we celebrated a birthday there with everyone playing in teams!

  48. kadie says:

    My favorite video game experience is how it used to be.:
    No internet telling you how to cheat. Nor an app cheating for yo
    .When you would get together with neighborhood kids, family, friends would play. You would learn things by.spending time with each other

  49. Carina says:

    My favourite game experience was playing Little Big Planet with my best friend and his brother. The game had stickers that you go stick everywhere you go, so we always stuck feathers on each others characters, which amused all of us. :)

  50. Stacie Amelotte says:

    Always loved Centipede as a kid. Have to say my favorite gaming memory is playing Disney computer games with my daughters when they were younger. :)
