Croc: Legend Of The Gobbles on the PS1

Words cannot describe my love for that game

At the end when you lost, if you didn't press continue the little Croc thing would walk off the screen looking sad and it used to make me upset. I was only young

My earliest memory of gaming was watching my uncle playing some platform game (I have no idea which one) on the ZX Spectrum, and thinking it looked really boring, and wanting to use the TV to watch my Peter Rabbit video. This would have been when I was about 2 years old.

But my earliest memory of actually playing a game myself is from when I was 3 years old. The same uncle had just got a Super Nintendo as a gift, with Street Fighter II bundled with it. I wasn't really allowed to play, because it was supposedly for ages 8 years and up due to violence, but he let me play anyway. I played so much, and attempted so many special moves that I started developing a callus on my left thumb. My mum then tried to ban me from playing, but I got too upset. Eventually the compromise was that, I was allowed to play, but just not allowed to do any special moves - especially not the "Shoryuken"!

I had this wizard of oz game and you were Dorothy and had to defeat the wicked witch of the west - I loved that game, around that time I was probably introduced to the sims too and went out and brought the entire sims collection. Good times.

I think it must have been Christmas '96 when we got a playstation. I was quite young and had no idea what it was at the time. I think the first game we fired up was crash bandicoot or porsche challenge.

I have played Kirby's dreamland on Gambe Boy long before I have bought a Game boy. And I have played many other games before Kirby. That is an unpayable experience!
