    Crazy to think how technology has improved so much in the video gaming world. I spent my youth playing Super Mario in 2D with so-so colors, and now my kids are now playing Disney Infinity which allows them to swap out characters and build their own 3D worlds.

    Mine was stolen when I was a kid. I loved that thing. I was just yesterday thinking that it's a pretty big disappointment to me that I never beat Bugs Bunny's Crazy Castle 2. I don't have any plans to buy one again, so I might never have a chance.

    My absolute favorite game was Zelda: Link's Awakening. Everything fun about any Zelda game, but set outside of the regular (convoluted) Zelda universe and with a very quirky sense of humor. Lots of fun and plenty of challenge to keep you busy for a while :)

    I LOVED that game. Then again, I'm a Zelda fan anyway. And I'm right there with you on Bugs Bunny... Ahhhh, the memories!:banana::banana::banana:

    Then there was Tetris! That game has been ported or cloned to every capable device over the last 20+ years, but it is definitely best executed in handheld form.

    Re: Zelda- Best moment ever in that game: When I realised the shopkeeper was a little slow in keeping his eye on Link, I played around for several minutes to see if I could sneak out with an item in my possession without paying, not really expecting that it would work. Of course, it did work, which was a huge thrill!!!

    Happy birthday indeed. Oh the great memories.:dance: I still have mine along with a Game Gear and a Turbo Express. I love video games and I'm a collector. I still have my Atari 2600, Sega Master System, NES, SNES, Genesis, Turbo Grafx-16, Turbo Duo, and my all-time favorite Neo Geo. :dance::dance:
    I like the current gen, however, I'm old school. To me, the golden age of video games started with the 8-bit generation and reached its apex during the 16-bit generation.

    Awesome! I guess I never really thought of USSR/Russia as "Western".

    I have a vid for you, too! This is what I was talking about from Zelda. The best part is what happens at the end.

    Happy Birth day. I was not remember it because I was gone to Dubai for some work.

    I'm sure you were also too banned to buy a gift? Game Boy would be disappointed.
