The first 8 years of my life were spent without ever playing a video game. Video games were the devil so my parents wouldn't let me have them. :( I was still interested in them though. Looking at and cutting out the box art from the Toys R' Us catalogue. Reading about them in the occasional gaming magazine. Then I started going to a youth center in the summer. They had a SNES and I got to play Super Mario World and Megaman X 10 minutes at a time. The longest I went after that was a weekend when they weren't open. Theeeen I eventualyl stopped going ot the youth center. My friend gave me a Half-Life CD Key and my long addiction to CS started. That's all I played for hours a day for a couple of years. I eventually got bored of that. Now I've got a 360 and a Wii and gaming PC and couldn't imagine going a day without games.
