First game I ever played was at my Grandma's house. She has been basically locked in her house for as long as I could remember because of disabilities. Other than being an awesome grandmother, the one thing I can remember her being is a kick-ass video gamer. She always has the newest games and the newest consoles. She has played on pretty much every system that has ever come out. For Christmas every year, I could always expect at least one game and a system from her. When she decided I was old enough to hold a controller, she put me in front of her NES and turned on the original Castlevania
game for me.
That game will always hold a special place in my heart. My Grandma sitting next to me on her bed while I button smashed my way through the castle. Her laughing when I would get so excited about killing the lowest level of monsters.
As I got older, she gave me more complex games. I even helped her make a homemade strategy guide for Dark Cloud
when it first came out. I went over to her house almost every day for months just so we could see how many weapons we could make for each character, make little maps of the different ways the towns could be arranged, what arrangement of the towns got you rewards, the best places to level weapons, etc...I think she still has that little guide we made sitting in her closet somewhere. It's huge. Like several giant binders full of papers.
