    whats the golden age for u when it comes to video games? best console gen or the best games. For me i would pick ps1, when sqauresoft was killing the game. FF 7 8 and 9 some of my all time fav games. I was only a kid then and games were what they were games, just for fun untill i found ff and that is when the story element of gameplay sucked me in. Crash bandicoot also was a major influcence on me when the ps1 was still considered cutting edge.

    TBH todays era, 2017 is quite strong theres a lot of games i wanna play but money and time dictate other wise.

    I have the most personal fondness of the PS2/Gamecube era but 2017 has been the best year of gaming to me in a long time.

    PS1 definitely. It was kind of another thing to do not the only thing we played it at night or during bad weather we still had fun with non video games and playing outside. After the PS2 came out my brother forgot the real world existed,

    Probably N64, primarily because of GoldenEye and Perfect Dark. I got an insane number of hours out of those games, so much fun.

    SNES and N64 were my most nostalgic consoles.

    I was born in 1990....so....I started playing SNES when I was 3-5 ish. N64 came out when I was 6 and ended when I was 10, so that was also an influence. Gamecube was my preteen and teen years, loved that one too. I lost interest during the Wii and Wii U stages, but am back in action for the Switch.

    I've been playing more in 2016-2017, but I'd say 1998-99 in terms of 'golden age for memories'. That was when I got a PSX—I went as far as to get a US instead of a Euro version, because some of the games I wanted weren't available in Europe at the time; this also meant people in my town who were in the same situation tended to know each other, or gravitate towards each other at the same games store. One of my closest (and now oldest) friends introduced me to games like Xenogears, FF VII/VII, Final Fantasy Tactics, and a few other RPGs, and we spent a lot of time talking about games and bonding around those. I also had more time to play, in a more relaxed environment: I was a student and let's be honest, if I screwed up on an assignment because I had mismanaged my studying/gaming time, it only impacted me, whereas now it impacts me, my team and our customers, so obviously I'm much more mature and responsible regarding this (but I do miss the carefree, summer-holidays approach I could afford then.

    I saved up my allowance for over a year to buy a Super Nintendo, so i enjoyed the hell out of that when I finally got one. Once I started working, I bought and sold N64's. Then for about a million years I went without one. Now I have one and unless it craps out on me, I'm not letting go. I'm not the biggest on disc systems. I guess it's just because I'm attached to the cartridge systems. I never got into Sega as a kid, but here lately I've seriously been considering getting one. the local video game store sells them for $50, so they're not expensive at all.
