This is hard to just choose two games, I feel like I could choose dozens when I think of the games in both arcades and at home.

DOB: 1980
Childhood: Parsec (TI99/4A), Chaos (Spectrum)
Teenage years: Athlete Kings (Saturn), Mortal Kombat (SNES, Megadrive & Arcade)
Adulthood: Uncharted series (PS3), Resident Evil 4: Wii Edition (Wii)

I feel like I've completely betrayed the Amiga/PC/SNES/Saturn/N64/Arcade games that I COULD have chosen. I'm SO tempted to write a list of games right here.
