That Count Duckula 2 for the CPC is really a system seller, for sure. One of the most brilliant pieces of soft ever written for a machine, I would say.

I almost forgot about my Gamecube! I had lent that to my friend a very long time ago and I think he's probably had it for about 8 years now!
My Xbox 360 hardly got any use, but I had originally bought it for Ketsui, which I then ended up buying again for the PS3.
The Gamecube, I purchased for Viewtiful Joe.

No I was joking :P

I assume you're joking about receiving a copy of Street Fighter II as well? :D

I bought my first PS2 in order to play Gran Turismo 3, probably bought my first PS1 for Tomb Raider or Crash Bandicoot.

I bought a cheap N64 with a bunch of games and then gave away everything but Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask, which was all I was ever really interested in (and I still have it). I think I held onto Mario 64 till I'd played it through, but I wasn't overly enamoured with it. And I got a Gamecube mostly to play Wind Waker, though I did enjoy a few other titles on it.

I bought a 360 for the Nazi zombies mode on Call of Duty World at War. But it perhaps doesn't count that strongly as I bought it from a friend who was leaving the country and sold it to me at a really good price with a few other games too - I probably wouldn't have bought one otherwise.

But of course that was around 2008, I think.

My 1st console was the 90s revamped Atari 2600, I brought it at the time because it was cheap, through I still put it on Lay-by, when I did that, the shop I brought it from had a Brochure of some of the popular games for it. I remember getting Crossbow initially, Kangaroo, Dig-Dug & eventually Mario Bros which were in the Brochure. When I got onto the Activision games though I was getting more of those games because they were a lot Cheap & in some cases were just as good or better than the Atari games, games like Hero, Keystone Kapers & Pitfall were played a bit, even though I got Keystone Kapers & Pitfall just before getting an Atari 7800. Like the Atari 2600, I had a Brochure for that, I ended up getting Dig Dug, Commando, Pole Position & Planet Smashers, I also got Food Fight, but I was probably influenced in getting an 7800 after playing Scrapyard Dog in store!  :laugh:

Yeah, discovered it shortly after getting mine. And now it's among the very best games I've ever played...


Years later I played his next game, Child of Eden. Another amazing *experience*:

Yeah, I have that one too, but imho it's a bit too much. Rez managed to deliver an amazing experience without cluttering the screen too much.

Maybe true, but I found it had the same "synesthetic" effect on me. For instance, I found out that by the time I had finished a level, my heart beat was in sync with the music!
