I began gaming at an early age, starting with an Atari 7800. It wasn’t until around the launch of Super Mario Bros. 3 that I was able to get a NES. I asked for a SNES near the time of release but got a Sega Genesis instead. Aside from the Nintendo handhelds along the way, none of my other consoles were Nintendo until the release of the Wii. It was the Wii that spawned my love for Nintendo.
