What was the first videogame you ever bought with money you'd earned yourself?
sega dreamcast + a fuckton of games that i wasn't even expecting because sega was already going under. shit was cash
phantasy star, sonic adventure & shuffle, crazy taxi, sports game, jet set, fur fighters
Pokemon Gold, I asked my Mom to drive me to Target exactly at 9:00 so I could get my preorder, and what the fuck does she do after I pay?
>I'm gonna buy Silver for your brother, I don't want you to be the only one with it

I worked my ass off all summer for a landscaping company and nearly died of dehydration to make a handful of cash. The first thing I did with my first paycheck was buy some new shoes, some stuff to make hamburgers and fries, and a copy of Stronghold: Crusader.
God, that was a good weekend!
I think it was TBC. My mother refused to pay my WoW subscription and so i had to start working in my local gas station. TBC went up and that may be my first game/expansion bought with my own money.
>that feel when he wouldn't do it for you if he thought you only wanted to get your games burned and didn't want to be his friend
>having to spend hours with him watching weird shit anime and listing to his austic trivia about heavy metal history
>still having to pay him money to burn shit for you
>finally get a burner
>"anon, why don't you come over anymore? i've got a lot more anime to show you"
>"i dunno man just been busy I guess"
>actual friend comes over, "hey anon can I bring some shit over to burn?"
>his fucking face when
I'm so sorry Steven but honestly dude you never showered and you smelled like shit and your hair had more grease than a fucking deep fryer. And like five years later, when you went full goth and dressed like those swedish metalheads at eurovision, and you got that goth girlfriend, no one fucking cared because she was fat as fuck and her face looked like she'd just buried it in a box of pizza Shapes and no amount of black lipstick and eyeliner and white warpaint was going to hide it.
Friend got drunk and couldnt see straight and as we were loading up the dungeon crawler he says
>Wtf game is this? The Foreskin Dragon??
its called the Forsaken Dungeon
Power rangers time-force or whatever on the PS1, it was pretty bad, the whole game was timed
It's hard for me to say. I remember my first paycheck; it snagged me a new PS2 and GTA III. I was sixteen at the time.
"Earned?" When I was a kid I'd rake the neighbors' yards, stuff like that.
Then I'd bike to the mall and buy PC games.
I'll go with SimAnt.
You faggots are young as fuck. Please tell me someone remembers playing vidya on an apple iic? I used to have a text only football game that I spent days of my childhood playing. Anyone remember catch the fucking wumpus?
When I was growing up I had a friend whose mother worked for Digital. That family had a dozen computers back when nobody had one yet. I remember those old Apple games, but I never had an Apple at my house.
Luckily this friend lived a few houses down. The first game on our first PC was pic related. I remember his mother trying to teach my mother how to install it and use DOS.
Ultimately they just taught me.
My nigga. Finally someone who was alive in the golden era. I was practically ready to suck cock to get the Simpson's game around that time. I still have all my old Nintendo power magazines I used to daydream over. Amazing how much a few pictures can make you imagine. Oh Jesus, little nemo adventures in slumberland! I am about to have a nostalgia ejaculation.
Hell, I dunno, Turtles in Time probably.
There was a pawn shop in walking from my house growing up, and they have cheap as fuck video games.
I mowed lawns, and bought vidya all summer.
If it was first game I bought with money from chores and stuff, then it would have been some ps1 game, I know I bought Crash 1 myself for cheap in 2000 after having 2, 3 and CTR but there may have been something earlier.
If "earned" means from an actual job, then I'm pretty sure it was Infamous 2.
When I finished high school I got a job, saved up to build a pc and bought Half Life 2 with it. So that, I guess. My parents bought me games as a kid, but I had to do chores and shit for them, but that doesn't really count.
Original Playstation with Tekken 3.
It was bought on a "head or tails" coin toss situation.
RNJesus knew what was good for me.
Whenever i see Spectrum stuff i can almost smell the memories of when i was trully happy...
All this salt made me smile, anon. Thank you.
What Simpsons game? Vs Space Mutants or Vs the World?
I had both + MM3, SM3, Battletoads.
Also around 40 Famicom cartridges with an adapter for the NES.
Where you able to beat Bart vs the world?
There is a wonderful dub steppy remix of the thanatos boss fight music from secret of mana floating around on YouTube. I used to record that shit onto cassette to listen to on the bus. Bestest vidya music ever
Metal gear solid was the first game I bought.
Golden Axe for the Mega Drive. I saved up for a month washing cars and mowing lawns, even did bike repairs for other kids with my dads tool set.
I never finished it.
