I just wanna know what everyones fondest memory of video games is, it doesnt have to be directly related to playing one..just something that resulted via video games.
I know exactly what mine is.
1985 i was 5 or 6 and the family had a 5200 that we all played all the time (mostly my father and my though:P)
Anyways, i was in little leage at the time, and at a game earlier that day i had heard some kids using the F-word...i didnt know what it meant, but it must be cool if i never heard it.
So later that night me and my dad were sitting there playing Pac-man on 5200. My dad had gotten to one of the key levels, and he was doing really well, considering he never read books or learned patters or any of that garbage:P
Well, he had just ate a Mega dot or whatever they are called and the ghosts turned blue, right when he was about to eat one, they turned back and he died...
"FUCK!" i yelled...and my father..with a confused look on his face turned to me and said very quietly "What did you say?"
And i replied "fuck...whats the big deal about that"...
That was followed by a swift smack in the mouth and a "go to your room!"
Anyways, i still think about that moment all the time, i remember it so clearly as far as my memory's from that age are concerned...i dunno
just thought i could share this with you all, cause its kinda a funny story
BTW, my dad didnt like beat me or anything...but he wasnt afraid to gimmie a smack in the mouth when i did something stupid:P
