Dob - 1981

Childhood - Treasure Island Dizzy (Spectrum), Alex Kidd in Miracle World (SMS)
Teenage - Burn Cycle (CD-I), Monkey Island (PC)
Adult - Tomb Raider 2 (PS1), GTA IV (PS3)

That was really difficult and i'm not sure i'm happy with my choices as I'm missing loads of games that I really spent a lot of time with like Civilization (PC), Super Mario Land (GB), Putt & Putter (SMS), Uncharted (PS3) etc etc. In the end I went with the ones that were clearest in my memory.

DOB 1981

Kiddie Years - SNES Super Probotector & Street Fighter Two
Teenage Dirtbag - PC Freespace 2 & Xbox Halo or Arcade Tekken 3 I can't decide.
Old Git (current) - Deadspace and...um...I dunno yet....maybe Fallout 3

Intruth SNES would really be early teens and xbox/pc early twenties but whatever...
