As much as I love Nintendo, my roots go deeper. When I was 6, I first started gaming on my Dad's Apple 2c, but my first console was an Atari 7800. I enjoyed many games on it but when I realized all my friends had an NES, it was time to upgrade. Once I was given a NES, I never looked back. I currently own all the home consoles from Nintendo, including the Virtual Boy (which I claim to have owned before anyone else in America), and an Atari 7800. When it comes to portables, I have all the GameBoy Advance models minus the Micro, all the DS models minus the XL, the 3DS, and 3DS XL. My favorite console is the GameCube because it brought me back to gaming. The last two years of the Nintendo 64 era I was more focused on partying than gaming. When the GameCube finally launched, the hype surrounding the new console prompted me to wait in front of a K-Mart to get one of the first consoles launch day. Some of the toughest games I've beaten include Ninja Gaiden, Battletoads, Super Ghouls 'n Ghosts, and F-Zero GX. I entered the 1991 Blockbuster Videogame Championship and placed 3rd at my location and won the 2nd place prize in a Street Fighter tournament at a local arcade. Recently I became the first person to win a Your Shape online event in November 2012 for Wii U. I'm a diehard Nintendo fan at heart and will continue to be until my thumbs fall off.
