I'm not really too sure what made me ask for a video game console one Christmas. Probably because when I was really, really young my Dad won a Sega Mega Drive and I sort of remember always wanting to play it but never getting much of a chance before he sold it. Then I'd say when I was about 5 I asked for a console one Christmas. I remember looking in the Argos catalogue and pointing out a console that I simply remember referring to as "the black one", so I'm going to assume it was a Mega Drive. But I think my Mum insisted that some other one was better and that's how I ended up with a PS1. I started with Rayman and now I have some 600 video games in my possession.
The Gameboy Colour would have been the next system I got and Pokemon Yellow was probably what really got me into gaming. That was such an awesome game back in the day.
