playermodelashx.jpg I don’t really consider myself that old, so I can’t recall playing any pong or even atari: therefore, my old school most memorable moment was getting the NES for Christmas from my grandma when I was 4. The first game I owned, besides Super Mario Bros., was Popeye. That Christmas morning I played Popeye for hours not caring that I had other presents to open, they were probably socks anyway. This was the start of my addiction.

A more recent memorable moment in gaming was in college when my roomates and I first learned how to use system link on the xbox and hooked up an xbox in 2 different rooms on 2 different TVs. We played Halo for 16 hrs straight, pausing for 30 secs max for bathroom breaks, if were even aware we had to go. We even left the pizza man at the door for at least 5 mins, tuning everything out except the rants from the next bedroom over. -BSB boffman

  1. I loved that Popeye game. I still remember the cans of spinach.

    16 hours straight, huh? Now that is dedication! I think the longest I have pulled is 12 hours, and that was with complete meal breaks. I love LANs, mainly because you can reach over and smack the person who just killed you. 🙂

  2. bs angel-16 hrs was pretty tough. we were all pretty exhausted. I don’t have much experience in LAN’s, but it was nice to watch the other players expression. It’s like one big laughing party!

  3. I agree! Gaming in person is such a different experience than gaming online. It’s a lot of work hauling all the necessary components together but well worth it in my opinion. I don’t get to do it nearly as much as I would like though.

  4. The LAN parties we had a little bit ago was fun. While ours was only 5 hours it was the funnest time ive had in awhile. For ours it was either you were there and played or you had to wait till the next one.
