The Sega Master System complete with Ghostbusters game. Why? Because Ghostbusters was and is my favorite movie and that game and that console started my love for digital adventuring which now has me spending way too much money on old games and quite a bit on new ones as well. :mrgreen:

The best gaming-related present is waking up on Christmas Day and finding my love for gaming hasn't diminished at all.

After r3play, if I unwrapped a potion that made me half decent at the following games

- Pong
- Warlords
- Fifa
- Sensi
- Street Fighter
- Tekken
- Call of Duty

(and sequels of the above thereof)

I'd be chuffed to bits.

Sneaking downstairs early to get my shiny new Megadrive, playing it for an hour before anybody else woke up, and basically ruining the present-opening ritual for the whole family.
It's called a MEGADRIVE

Xmas 83...

I'd been dropping hints about VIC 20, saw the large oblong box under the tree and went to unwrap it...

IT WAS ONLY A COMMODORE 64!!!!

Life hasn't been the same since! :D :D :D

Being incredibly sick on boxing day and having to suffer through missing the Stevenage Rushden game. Then my parents getting back after finding no trains and me right as rain playing on the PSOne and looking incredibly guilty...

For me its still getting gaming presents on Christmas day!
Love it!
I remember getting Dead Space on the PS3, playing Christmas night in the dark all scared!!

Then I remember I am 39 years old...
For Fcuk Sake!!

Still love gaming though.
I remember my mum letting me open a game for my ZX Spectrum on Christmas Eve (for me the best day of the holidays) years ago.
It was Danger Mouse in Double Trouble!!
