The title of this thread has been on my mind recently, so I am going to share how I became the person I am today. It all started with my Wii. Ah, the Wii. Such memories. The first game I ever played ever was Wii Fit I believe? (lmao) My brother played Mario Kart Wii all of the time. He unlocked all of the characters, including Funky Kong, Rosalina (yesyesyes), and even Dry Bowser. I watched him do grand prix, and I also loved racing against, or with him! Even though he won or was the reason we won most of the time, it was still enjoyable and fun! We would play for hours on end. I eventually developed a passion for gaming at around the age of 6 when I received a DsiXL for my 6th Birthday. It was one of my favorite things ever. In fact, it was a 25th Super Mario Bros Anniversary one, and I still own it; still perfectly functional! I played MySims Racing, Mario Kart DS, Weird Spongebob Games, Bowser's Inside Story, and more! (Bowser's Inside Story was the first ever RPG game i've ever played.) Eventually, we got a brand new game called Wii Party. I. loved. it. At the time, there were many options and endless different ways to play! During my 'development' of loving the game, the disk wasn't scanning into the console and it kept saying "disk cannot be read" or something like that. The disk was probably wasn't scanning because of the amount of smears on the gray part of the disk. We got a new one, and to this day, it is one of my favorite games of all time. I remember during the summers, I always sat on the couch in the den by myself for hours. I would play games like Globe Trot and Spin Off. When there were people, it was equally as fun!! Ah, the good ol' days. I saw my brother playing this dumb Minecraft server called "Meepcraft". This was when I was still into dolls and crap, so I wasn't having it. (I donated all of my dolls when I was 9-10.) I got Minecraft in the first place because I wanted to play on a youtuber's Minecraft server. I bought it on my mother's computer, and as soon as I had the opportunity, I went for it. It was so constant my parents eventually had the idea to buy me my own laptop! I've now had a Macbook Air for 4-5 years. I eventually left the server because of 2 reasons. One: It was causing me too much stress to bear with. Two: Pretty much the staff members were dumb as hell because they banned me instead of the hacker on my skyblock island. Someone reported me for "yelling at a player". (LOL) I then gave mEePcRaFt a try. I didn't really like it at first, but as I kept coming online, I met friends and had the most wonderful of times. It was truly an amazing experience for me. Life lessons were learnt, as well as knowing how to have some funfunfunfun! I built homes in wild, made some derpy structures in creative, and used the /sethome glitch in city to eventually complete it! Not a lot I can say, since my Meepcraft journey still goes on! I then heard of Mario Party 10 and wanted to buy it! It was sadly only for the Wii U, so I got Mario Party 9 instead. It actually turned out to be enjoyable for me, I completed the entire story mode and developed favoritism over bosses and characters! During the Christmas of 2015, I eventually received a Wii U! With Mario Kart 8! I loved Mario Kart games already, so I knew I would love it. I was more skilled than my brother was and I ended up beating him in almost every race! My favorite is the all-time challenging Rainbow Road. I also loved Rainbow Road in Mario Kart Wii, so pretty much RRoad is my all-time favorite course. I got Mario Party 10, and I COULD PLAY AS ROSALINA! The end credit screen is my favorite part because you can roll the dice and see which character you get! You can also learn their logos of you don't know them. THEN I received a Nintendo Switch on March 5th, 2017. Just 2 days after it's first release! Now, I have games like Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Splatoon 2, and Odyssey! I also still have my Macbook, and i've learnt to expand my game variety. (I do have a 3DS, but there's not a lot to say about that :3) The current games I enjoy? Meepcraft(MC), The P0rtal Series, Cuphead, Almost all Mario Games, Bendy and The Ink Machine, Miitopia, Undertale, and a few more that I don't remember on the top of my head. That's pretty much me. How about you? Edited Note ~ My white Wii a few years ago (4-5 years i'm guessing) wasn't reading any disk that we put in there. "CANNOT READ DISK" We had to get a new one (the deluxe edition), and my brother and I were devastated when we had to deal with the fact that all of our Mario Kart Wii save files were gone. As well as wIi pArTy! (It wasn't that hard to get everything back from my previous Wii Party save file.) All that hard work, wasted. The reason why it was gone? Well, it's a new console! How is it supposed to retrieve the data back? I have no clue where my Wii is, but I use my Wii U as my Wii since there's a thing that lets you go to the Wii Menu. You can then put in Wii Disks, and it lets you play all of the old Wii games! It even saves progress.
