Tell us stories of your parents/family and the video games. If you have a story from someone else's family that still involves video games, that's fine too.
Pic semi-related for me, as any games with "2-player" I tried to get my dad to play would always end up with this reaction from him.
My mom is in love with Earthbound and is beating the game for a second time as we speak.
>Playing any team based multiplayer game
>dad walks in
>but dad hes my tea-
>shoot him anyway
My mom and I beat Super Mario World together after we got a SNES. She was better at getting to the bosses and I was better at beating them.
My dad and I beat alttp a lot around that time as well. And much later my sister beat Paper Mario, TTYD, and Super Paper Mario together.

Still makes me cringe when I think about it.
If my Dad ever sees me playing MGS, he stops to watch. He loves the kooky plot and characters (He's a Kubrick/Lynch fan). His favorite moments were thehe end of MGS2 whereyou're running around naked and getting calls from colonel and the first boss fight from MGS4 ( he actually got a jump scare, and we've watched hella horror movies and that rarely happens).

He played a whole load of vidya in his childhood but now he doesn't have the time for them. He respects the medium and let me play 18+ games from the age of around 5. He's cool.

Funny thing is
This isn't the first time he did this, my mum bought my brothers a SNES and a Mega Drive, and he took the SNES because he believed having too many is too bad.
because being nude is natural, and not necessarily provocative
swearing is unnecessarily vain and provocative
besides its not like your mom has not seen a dick or two before, THINK ANON.

>MFW I've known my best bro for all my life
I'll sum up my experiences with my dad by saying that he played Diablo 1 co-op with me when I was four and that he designed what's still the best Timesplitters 2 map on my memory card. My mom used to play N64 platformers and Rollercoaster Tycoon all the time. Neither of them really play video games now, but I bought my dad the new XCOM for Christmas last year and he stayed up until 2:00 am every night playing it until he went back to work after vacation.
>Mfw I had the same level of bro
>Mfw we had the same plans to get an apartment together
>Mfw I got replace with a wom
We used to watch our stepdad play Tomb Raider 1 as well. Other games he's beaten include Doom and motherfucking Mike Tyson's Punch Out!! One of the hardest bosses in vidya history.
why this game, did you ever ask her?
Maybe she's secretly a furry.
>Used to watch my dad play Thief and Hitman
>Shit was comfy

>Mom played shit like DAoC all the time, had multiple level 50s

I have a feeling it may go the same way with me. He's still with the chick we boned, but he's in "love" with her. we're both still teenagers ffs.
I'm going into a job with an actual wage soon and he's still in college. I just want vidya and booze with my bro instead of this mind stealing alien with boobs
Holy fuck, are you me anon?
I'm busting my balls working and he's bitching an moaning that his parents stopped giving him 60$ on request.
>mfw i'm the only person in my family who cares the slightest about vidya
At least I can raise my kids with the games I used to pl-
My dad would play Hitman Silent Assassin and CoD when we had the Gamecube, there was also one time he got addicted to Mario Kart for a couple of weeks. He hasn't played anything since we moved and I got my own TV though.
My mom's lucky if she can find the start button on the controller.
My oldest cousin by about 10 years had a n64 before all of us other cousins. Whenever we had family gatherings we'd take turns playing Ooc or Mario part in his room. The guy was such a bro about it. He'd probably like nothing more to hang out with his friends and GF but he'd give us about an hour or two of his time before he went out.
i wish I had the courage to ask him about questions about love and life when I was a teen. Now that ship has sailed. He was he big brother I always wanted

She's seen me and all my brothers play games our whole lives, we've owned most consoles, but she never really payed any attention to it. I remember when I was little, playing A Link To The Past, she said to my dads friend: "I don't know how they do this so well" and chuckled.
Maybe I'll play Journey soon again.

The worst part is now that he's asking for a divorce and leaving the family I know for sure we'll never play games again, and every day that goes by I fear I'll lose another memory of us playing video games together.
Same here, anon. My kids love watching me play MK7, Smash, and Sonic.
However, when I play Smash, they beg me to use Mega Man and Dr.Mario, two characters I'm terrible with. They have destoyed my online record.
Its worth it though. Being a dad and bonding with your kids through vidya is the fucking best.

My dad's watched me play some TF2 before. He thinks it's hilarious, and loves watching me play as Heavy. Probably because as Heavy all I do is try to get taunt kills via holiday punch and use voice commands.

My bad, by "soon" I meant when we both have living/semi living wages. He currently has a job that he busts his balls in but it's nowhere near living wage. Ain't no way I'm living with someone that can't pay room and board
I'm still stuck in dead end minimum wage hell, but it's looking up soon.
"soon" = ~2 years
>oh shit, dat image
someone have the link of the video
They all like to play, mostly together without me because I beat them every time, but sometimes they're up for a 3vs1. Only thing is, they have a list like ten characters long of people I'm not supposed to use because I'm too good as them.
Probably a few more I'm forgetting.

My parents are pretty casual but they love video games. My dad really likes shooters even though he's pretty terrible at them, he plays a lot of Battlefield 4 on his PS4 and at first spent most of his time waiting to shoot a Stinger or a SMAW at any vehicle that enters his line of sight. He's done a decent job of gitting gud since then, though, in my opinion.
Mom loves anything with zombies in it. My dad got her hooked playing Nazi Zombies on World At War ages ago, so much so they bought all the map packs just for the zombie levels. They'd get so into it they'd wake me up at like 2 in the morning to ask for strategies for whatever map they were on. They still play it today.
She loves the Telltale Walking Dead series, as well. Got a pretty good story out of her playing it, too. Spoilers for anyone who hasn't played Season 1 yet.

She's now a fat slob who wants to become a musician and lives in a cramped apartment.
honestly I wish more games had the option of playing local multiplayer with just 1 cartridge.
by the time my kids start caring about online they should get a job to buy their goddamn games.
>Dad used to love Galaga and Wrecking Crew
>mom emulates shmups
She has shit taste
Dad started to be a huge nerd after he gave me a PS1. Since then, he buys almost every console that i buy as well.
He loves sony. He has a thing for japanese ladies. My dad will probably be the oldest person to ever become a weabo and this is great holy shit
I've been able to get my dad into shooters somewhat.
The funny thing is, when he's playing he throws himself around the couch like he's trying to dodge the imaginary bullets. It's pretty hilarious to watch.
Both of mine are still toddlers, so I won't let them watch met play those games, mainly because I remember getting some serious nightmares from Doom.
I just enjoy the look of sheer joy they get when I boot up Sonic. Its so fucking satisfying.
My two oldest are 8 and the youngest is 6, he just loves the fucking violent stuff. Hasn't acted out or I'd cut him off from watching me. I only even let him because I played DOOM and such at a fairly young age. Plus Serious Sam can make the blood fairly goofy, like green, or rainbows, or stuff like that. It's really just a kid watching me use goofy guns to turn goofy aliens into goofy blood.

They ended up divorcing but we still see each other from time to time.
That actually sounds fucking awesome. I just recently got into horror/violent games like the Walking Dead, Gears of War, and Alien: isolation, and my wife has gotten nightmares from each, so I obviously shouldn't let my kids watch it.still, I like knowing that I can play more family- friendly games and enjoy them, and have my kids enjoy them more than I do.
Seriously, they giggle and get so excited when I play a game they love. It's the fucking best thing in the world to them, so much that they can't contain it. It warms my heart every time I hear it.>>268606845
Mine love Smash Bros more than anything else, it seems like. Nice playing with them, but sometimes I just want a gorefest. Halloween is coming up, as an example, and I love to replay FEAR on Halloween. Can't this year since it's my turn to take the kids out.
I might take the day after off so I can stay up late and play it.

You guys would love my dad /v/
Grandma liked Super Mario Bros but never able to beat it. Grandpa still gambles and he likes card games and stuff on PC but not "true games". Also chess, he's played it since he was 10.
My mom played some Spyro during PS1 days. She actually beat Pokemon Red. Nowadays just plays Facebook games and stuff like that.
Got my dad to play with me couple of times as a kid. He played max 15 minutes and that was it, couldn't get him into games. Brother has gamed his entire life like me but our tastes are pretty different, he mostly plays online games and mostly on PC. Nowadays LOL, used to play Enemy Territory, Runescape etc. owns still an Xbox 360 but doesn't use it, used to play some COD and Halo.

I want to preface this by saying that I love my father and he is the best man I've ever known. Really made up for how awful the rest of the family was.
>1996, 10 years old
>I had been shoveling snow for one or two months and was house sitting for a family away on Christmas vacation back in 1995, saving up for a PS1
>I finally got it along with WipEout, Rayman, Tekken, and Resident Evil
>Just enjoyed it by myself for a few days, was going to invite friends over the next day
>Then my piece of shit older brother came into my room, he was 13 at the time
>I was playing Rayman
>He asked me what the fuck I was doing and said that it was fucking retarded
>He ripped out my PS1 and motherfucking broke it over my bedpost, grinning at me while doing it
>WHAT THE FUCK WHY YOU PIECE OF SHIT I'LL KILL YOU
>I flew into a goddamned rage and didn't care how immature I looked, I flew straight at him and started punching him as hard as possible on the floor
>All of a sudden my dad was pulling me off of him
>I told him how my brother came in and just broke my fucking PS1 that I had spent my own fucking earned money on
>He went off on my brother so furiously, it was glorious
>"You know why I believe him over you!? It's because this isn't the first time you've pulled shit like this! I have more trust in Anon than you. You can't have such blatant disrespect for another person's property. He worked hard to get that, I saw how hard he worked. And it was expensive. You're going to fucking pay for this and then some. For the next four months, you're going to be put to work replacing his console and buying him any games he wants, out of your own pocket. There are consequences for destroying another persons property. And if I so much as see you scratch something belonging to someone else, I'll sell everything you fucking own. Then I'll take that money and hold a party for everyone that you won't be invited to!"
And he didn't pull any more shit. Felt so good.
>Me and my little brother have similar taste in games as kids, always playing multiplayer together
I still play PC games and 3DS with him sometimes, but it's hard when you don't see each other often and he's dedicated 80% of his waking hours to WoW
>But we both knew the more the merrier
>Constantly trying to get mom and dad to play simple games like Smash Bros, Mario Kart, and later Kirby Air Ride with us
>Mom was more compliant since she just took care of us all day, but she was noticeably terrible and sometimes got motion sickness
>Dad wasn't awful at games, but only played with us once or twice a year at most
>A few years later, mom is introduced to the DS
>Starts babysitting my Nintendogs while at school
>"You should play more games like this anon, instead of your violent games like that one" (she says, the latter game being Bomberman - and not the 360 version)
>Eventually becomes a hardcore Animal Crossing addict
>A habit she never gave up to this day, she even bought herself a 3DS without telling me just for New Leaf when it came out
>Whenever I see her we go visit each others' New Leaf towns
hers is much nicer than mine
>Meanwhile dad hasn't touched a game since me and my brother forced him to in like 2004
There have been a few times when I really feel like he'd enjoy games if he tried them. He is super into sci-fi, and just anything with the least amount of time travel is amazing to him. I remember playing through Mario and Luigi: Partners in Time for the first time, and I happened to have the
guidebookwith me. My dad sat next to me on the couch, picked it up, and asked me if the game was about time travel. I said yes, and he started reading the guidebook. And that was just a silly Mario and Luigi game. I'm sure there are tons of games with fuller sci-fi plots he'd go crazy for, but he's just too busy and now too oldto try.
My old brother (14y older, i'm 20) was playing a lot during his youth and obv i was with him.
> Started vidya with Amiga CD32
> Looked at him playing Tomb Raider 1/2/3, Shenmue, MGS 2 all the day and sometimes tried myself
> mfw he introduced me in vidya and offered me so much games. One special christmas i received a GBA from him with Wario Land 4 (didn't even heard of it) he bought one for him too to play with me.
> Our matches on Virtua Tennis on Dreamcast was amazing, especially with the Black Boss OP tennisman (secret one) we unlocked together.
> When he got the PS2 it was with Gran Turismo 3 and i enjoyed so much to watch him playing the round circuits 10 hours long he was like an idol for me.
> He had such a good taste in vidya so now i'm happy to had this chance but life has changed
> ~10 years ago he moved out with his girl and from that day it became like hard for us to pass time together. I used to live like 5 years ignoring him cause of that cause i didn't want to understand. 1 year ago he got a baby.
> I always thought he dropped the vidya from his life even if he had a PS3 he didn't play it for years.
> MFW MGS V GZ came out and remembered me such a lot of souvenirs but made me sad in the end. It's like my prefered vidya licence because of our plays. His birthday came out but as always didn't offer him anything. One week later he cale home to visit and i made him play Mario Kart 8 and i was stunned he enjoyed it. Introduce my will of offering him MGS GZ for his birthday and he told me that he would really like to play and said he misses vidya.
> It exploded in my head i couldn't believe it, like i got back my old brother seriously i was close to cry when i wrote this and obv i didn't explain everything about our good moments in my youth cause there is so much but yeah it was awesome.

>Mom used to play animal crossing city folk but got bored once she did everything in-game
My mom loved playing tetris and q-bert. That was about it.
A little while after my dad got a laptop from his work and he'd bring it home we started playing stuff like prince of persia and quake together
>I'll sell everything you fucking own. Then I'll take that money and hold a party for everyone that you won't be invited to!
Oh my god, that's so fucking mean.
Your dad is so fucking cool!

:( why did it stop.
Thats not fucked up. Thats normal.
Fucked up is watching dad shoot up heroine talkin' about how fucking good it was then going into a drug-coma lying on the floor while you play Vidya (It was Super Metroid btw)
Jesus you are such a pussy.

Not me, but I remember a while back in a thread like this:

>quickly turns it on again
>"Oh my god I'm so sorry, son"
>I just stare at him
>don't get mad and just tell him that he has to beat Storm King now
I was frustrated but I understood he just wanted to take a look to what I was playing. He played it then and a few times after, asking me for advice from time to time.
I just told him to get better.
>Father was obsessed with Goldeneye 64

My mom stole Unreal Championship from me because she heard one of the characters say "Shit"
I never got it back.
My dad would occasionally come into the room and watch me for a minute, then chuckle and walk away. Sometimes he would say "What's the appeal?" or ask me what the point of the game was.
I once got him to sit down and try
Halobut he couldn't figure out how to use the right thumbstick to look despite my explanations. He just ran around shooting at the sky or the ground, then gave up after 10 minutes or so.
Nobody wants to turn this into a dick measuring contest, but my dad molested my older cousin and the family covered it up. And his brother used to sling drugs out of his pizzeria.
>at my uncle's funeral

>Why don't you go and hang out with some friends?
>Why don't you tell me about your friends?
>You're not a NORMAL person!
>You can't just play videogames all day!
>That's not normal!
>you didn't have any friends
My dad would team up with my sister and play 2v2 in halo and halo 2 whenever I had a friend stay the night. We would switch up teams when we eventually whipped their asses. He also had to beat this one level in Bubble Bobble for me whenever I got to it, I would call him down and he would beat it and go back to what he was doing.
My sister used to play everything with me. She was decent at smash, she loved paper mario and we beat the Halo1 co-op campaign together. We were brother and sister who would also get the opposite version of every pokemon game. I would always have to show her where to go, but I didnt mind it.
My mom never played, and took them away from me when I got bad grades, but she never berated me too hard for playing them a lot. She would be the one to take me to gamestop so I could buy what I wanted though, so I always appreciated her for that
Neither of them play anymore but Ill give them a shoutout for playing video games with me during my childhood. Thanks dad and Syd, you guys are pretty cool.
>Really young, can't really remember age, but I'd guess 6 to 7-ish.

Well after about a year and a half of NEETdom (this is after I flunked out of community college) I managed to get a job due to family connections. It's not much better than being a NEET really, since it's part time and dead end. I transitioned from terrible depression into a mentality of just not really giving a fuck and trying to enjoy the things that mad me happy and just endure everything else. Hang in there, lil buddy.
You're much lcukier than me, i haven't been able to get a job in 5 years, no one wants me in the family
they all own land and had good jobsand i have the literel lowest grades the education system here offers

>saying I love you in a sarcastic comment
No offence to you anon, but wow what a bitch.
Well shit, man. I suggest you talk to whatever family member seems to hate you the least and tell them you really want to start working, then ask for help with that. If they don't have useful connections, they might be able to convince another family member to help you out. My grades were total shit too. I only passed chemistry and physics because I cheated on everything, and in algebra my teacher talked to me after class on the last day and showed me that I was going to fail the class, then just added a couple points to my grade because they didn't want me there the next year.
I suggest applying at Fedex and UPS as a package handler. The job requires zero skill and they hire genuine retards. There's also an incredibly high washout rate because it sucks, so they always need new people.
Two years ahead of you, man. Kinda wishing I had joined the military straight out of HS.

It's still possible to get a shitty edjamucation at a community college or something, they accept pretty much anyone who can pass the entrance tests. You could also go for a welding certificate or some other such thing that takes less than a year to earn and requires no real academics.
>I was kicked out for touching children

>Two years ahead of you, man

The only difference would be that you'd be a /fit/ trained killing machine with no interest in vidya, who's possibly dead from durka's living out Muhammeds wet dream. The military isn't for guys like us anon. There's always a better way, and at least in this life you aren't being shot at by Isis or Taliban as wonder why the fuck you gave up civilian life for this. The military anons have taught me much.
You either regret your service and barely make it out, or you embrace it and become kinda douchey/really motivated at the cost of a touch of PTSD. War is hell.

My dad got me into vidya when I was a kid. One of my first memories is of playing Sonic with him when I was too young to use the controller, so he sat me on his lap and had me jump while he used the D-Pad. He spent a ton of time in the arcades when he was a kid himself, but he never really transitioned into modern gaming.
Last Christmas I put some new hardware in my old gaming rig, and gave it to him along with Assassin's Creed: Black Flag. He's just about %100 it now. He says he doesn't want to get another game until he finishes this one.
That's actually the same computer I taught my mom how to pirate movies on, and I got her a DVD player with a USB port so she's been watching every slasher movie ever made for the last few months.
My mom played Mario Party with me growing up. She was actually pretty good at spinning the control stick, especially for the Fly Guy wind-up game inside the mini game house.
She also played Animal Crossing: City Folk for a while one time. She even earned up enough Bells to buy one of the entire series from Gracie's (whichever the blue one was). If I had to guess, Animal Crossing's probably one of her favorite games.
I don't know what my Dad plays because I've never met him.
>playing Dark Souls

What the fuck are those things?
Recently I found a mothers day card I gave to my mother when I was 5ish
it had said "I wish my mom would play video games with me" -happy mothers day
I think the only game she's ever played was brainage
Motherfucker you need to take him out for a nice steak dinner, buy him a bottle of scotch, and then paint the town red. If the evening doesn't end with you two covered in vomit and imprisoned, you have failed as a son.

My mother gets in front of the screen during an online match, but then again, I don't freak out over getting killed because it's
Blops2so it's no skin off my nose, and I just quit out the game if it was Demon's or Dark Souls. Try playing Demon's Souls on a CRT, fucking text is so tiny it's impossible to read anything.

Love you mom
I'd watch my dad play Heroes of Might and Magic 2 and Age of Empires 1&2. Eventually I began to play with him and he'd teach me how to play. I was about 3-4. They were the first games I ever played. He's the reason I got into video games.
Not the one my brother was semi-adopted into after being arrested and having to go through drug rehabilitation.
Best Italians I will ever know, though their son is kind of an asshole.
This is a good story.
My dad used to come home from work and yell Hadoken then proceed to kick my ass at Street Fighter 2 or Mortal Kombat for a couple of hours before he'd prepare dinner. I imagine he is one of the only 64 year olds on the planet that can FADC into an Ultra in Street Fighter 4. Christmas turns into an all out fighting game marathon between us and my two other brothers. He just bought a Wii U and an Xbone so Id imagine this year will be a Smash and Killer Instinct tournament.

Your kids are casuals.
I've told this story before but I think it's interesting enough to post again. My dad is a grizzled immigrant from Iran, a stony man who came from almost nothing. He has never shown even a passing interest in vidya. Except once.

This shit went on for months. I liked Rayman, but I didn't like it as much as my dad did. This guy had sold opium, outran the police in a Camaro, and had never worked for anyone but himself for his entire life. I had no clue why he loved the game so much, but he was completely enamored by it.
>Slowly stopped playing Rayman
>Hasn't played vidya since
That was over a decade ago. Sometimes, he'll still wear that same polo. And when I ask him about Rayman, his eyes lock with mine and he says "What's Rayman?"
Love you, Dad
I've played Hyrule Warriors with my mother for quite a while. She enjoys looking at all the video games I play, we're going to celebrate the release of Bayonetta 2 on thursday and looking forward to it. She's quite bro.

Those were probably the best 6 month of my life hanging out with my grampa. He died shortly to heart complication.
The night he died in just clutch the controller and play sf for like 2 day straight bawling my eye out.
I swear this is copypasta, but you've changed some details. I thought originally the guy got anon to trip into and crush the PS1

Don't look at other peoples parks mom.
My mom grounded me from playing RE4 for like, half a year because I thought it would be a good idea to see
Luis's death cutscenein the same room as my parents.
Luckily I beat the game some 12 or so times before that happened.

Another one that isn't as interesting
When Pokemon BW came out, I got her into Pokemon.
As in she probably spent $100+ and hours of her day getting every possible non-event Pokemon.
>mfw I used her game to breed stupid monotype teams
It's what happens when you're both OCD and
>Mom used to play F-zero, F-Zero X, Mario kart 64, and the Castlevania games
>used to hold high scores in the arcades for centipede and breakout
>one day she just loses interest altogether in playing games
Dunno what happened, maybe its age, or the times but she just up and quit suddenly like flipping a switch. My dad just sits and plays shit like Civilization and flash games. He used to be into MMOs until his group of people he played with gave up.

I found out just like a year ago that my mom threw out our Sega Genesis because my dad was constantly playing Hook on it.
I imagine him beastmoding every level without taking a hit.
>wahh wahh give me attention or I'll trash ur vidyer
And this is why I dont bother with women. It's not the 3DPD thing, it's just the incessant emotions ruling their mental state and having no capacity for consideration of others when they go on a emotionally driven tangent. I dont know what I'd do if I got a bitch and she broke my TV/PC/Consoles/handhelds because I ignored her for two seconds.
Reminds me of that WoW account deletion video, I bet she got beaten within a inch of her life when the guy finally saw the video.
I played Genesis with my dad back in the days
>Gave me the Genesis for cristhmas even though we were poor as fuck
>He played Sonic 2 with me after he came from work until he collapsed from tiredness
>He used to play Tails because
it reminded him of my dead mom
>I used to ask my grandma all day when will dad will come home so we could play Sonic 2 cause that day I will beat him
>He used to tell me that he was friends with the guy who made the game so that's why he was so good and I couldn't beat him
>At the airplane level I always told him how one day I would become a pilot and he laughed and said he expected no less from me
>I remember asking my grandma if dad was late that day as she tried to explain me he got in a bad accident at work that day
mfw I brought one of my genesis controllers to the funeral and put it inside the coffin so he could always play with me from heaven
Just one more year and I'll become a pilot dad.
This time I will beat you
>I just want to kill zombies
>dad walks in
>watch me play for a while
>"dang son, you're good"
>you can ear zombies, get a good idea of their location, thus it's like I turn and shoot them

YOU AINT FOOLIN ME ANON WITH YOUR FAKE STORIES.
fuck you anon I was having a good night
Tomorrow I'll hug my dad and tell him I'm sorry for dropping out of college.
Jesus Christ, I even heard a fucking based voice by reading that. Joy.
>mfw dad is a worthless good for nothing and plays video games more than i do
get a fucking job, mow the lawn, do something other than sitting your ass playing AoE 2 and Fallout all day
Good, one less idiot walking this Earth. What kind of stupid nigger gets killed on a "work accident"?

Fuck, why didn't I ask him for Snake Eater instead of AoT
Was born in Japan, my mum is Japanese too. First game I played was Popolocroise, really spoiled me on the JRPG aspect, hated the whole line of good guys vs line of bad guys with no strategic positioning.
But holy shit she was a dick too
>forced my sister (9) and I (4) to watch her play Otogirisō
>have nightmares for days
>forced us to watch the Alien movie too at that age
>have nightmares for days
>That feel when your dad used to play shit with you all the time as a kid (I fuckin loved Duck Hunt) but now for some reason is absolutely adamant on hating it
I don't understand, pops. Why don't you want to smash or shoot shit with me?
>I don't see the appeal to this.
My mother. Tekken 3
>Haaaaaha, you ran over the dude, whoop whoop, bwahahaha, what a stupid thing this video game is.
My father. San Andreas
>It's so bloody... ugh...
My sister. Left 4 Dead
>It's so realistic... it's terrible.
My other sister. GTA IV (I was just speeding down a street with a Motorcycle, not even doing violent shit.)
>Playing Rugby League 2 on PS2
>Dad walks in
>"why can't you be good at football in real life anon"
>Playing GTA 3 on PS2
>mum watches for a bit
>"wow that looks like a fun racing game, don't crash into anyone!"
Mother is that kid who used to get kicked out of arcades because she could hog a cabinet with just one coin.
She claims she got to the kill screen in PacMan. I refuse to believe that, but the mere fact she knows what that is already means something.
Now she has mellowed out, but she still plays from time to time. And I swear, Mario Party RNGs are on her side.
>Spend every summer at my 20 year old cousin's place in the 90's when I was young.
>Every year he would have a weekend where his brother, me and a friend of his sat down and either watched horror movies or watched him play through a horror game as we cheered him on and shit. Super fun.
>Alien, Aliens, Aliens games, Silent Hill, Resident Evil 1-3, Parasite Eve, The Crow, etc. etc.
Every fucking summer I'd have month long periods where I'm shitting myself at night imagining the monsters and shit from the films and games coming to eat me and shit, and I wouldn't shake my fear of the dark until I was about 17 because of it.
Would NEVER take it back, though, those were amazing times.
Parents were never the video-gamey type, but I always had siblings to play with, which was cool.
Been a while since I played with them though
>Brother is 8 years older than me
>Works insane hours at his job
>Normally super serious nowadays
>He comes over
>Says he wants to play Smash
>Ask him if he wants to play Melee or Brawl
>"Why the fuck would I want to play Brawl? Put in Melee."
>Start the game
>He and I both pick C.Falcon
>Go easy on him
>Lose buy a wide margin
>Kick it up to tryhard tier
>He beats me even harder, doesn't lose a single stock
>Mfw he wipes the floor with me for 3 straight matches
>Leaves immediately after
That fucker hasn't lost his touch at all
>Be 11 at the time
>Make friends with an autistic kid who was obsessed with the Pokemon Spheal
>Fucking kid has a custom Spheal shirt and made all these shitty poems and songs about it
>Sings one of them in front of our entire class
>Invites me over
>Expect everyone there to be weird
>So far they look normal
>His little brother is pretty cool
>Walks up to us while we're playing games
>"Can I play?"
>Only two controllers
>I don't want giving my turn up.
>"Go away, he doesn't want to play with you!"
>Look over at him
>Before I know it the two of them are fighting on the ground like dogs screaming
>His dad comes in and tries to break it up
>His "s-s-stop fighting" isn't working
>Kid's mother takes me home
>I'm 20 minutes late than I was supposed to be
>She breaks down and cries on my mother
I never went back again
I wanted a Sega Genesis as a present for my christmas to play Sanic because my cousin had one, but my parents bought me a playstation with "Mickey Wild adventures" and some more games. They saved me from a outdated console and from autism
(With not really much success)
I was really spoiled and didn´t eat my vegetables so ocasionally I played on my playstation while mum gave me the dinner.
My mom played with me the psone bust-a-move and my father played with me a F1 demo, he imitated the steering wheel with the controller. Also he used to hyped me a lot the MGS game "Is like a movie!", "You have to be stealthy". He saw me recently playing Peace Walker and had some laughs, and when we saw the promotional screenshots of MGS4 he felt pity for old snake.
Same thing with GTA:SA and my uncle
