ORIGINAL POST: Is everyone up for taking a stroll down memory lane? I’ve been enjoying a few retro JRPGs while on the move in the past couple of weeks and they’ve had me reminiscing about my formative gaming days in the pre-PlayStation era, getting lost in early Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest titles.
Those were the first games that I really fell in love with, and it was all due to the influence of one particular school friend, who had Japanese family and regularly brought back the latest titles from his homeland.
So, your topic for discussion today:
How and why did you first start playing video games, and what were the titles that first captured your imagination?
Your prize is apt this week, as it’s exactly the sort of game that I would have fallen for back in the day. The 10 most entertaining responses, as chosen by our panel of independent judges, will win a download voucher for brilliant PS Vita RPG Ragnarok Odyssey, which launched last week. For the uninitiated, take a look at publisher GungHo’s beginner’s guide from earlier this week, and check out the trailer below. Good luck!
