Since Christmas is getting near I thought I would get all nostalgic and ask What is the best Christmas Present you have ever received?
Could be anything from when you were a kid to a more recent present, maybe something you asked for or something you didnt. Any presents that blew your mind? Or something you really wanted but never got
I have to say for me there were a few,
First up was my Raleigh Burner. This was one I hadn't asked for, but was one of the best presents I EVER received, I would spend all my time on this thing, morning noon and night and loved it dearly.
Only thing bothered me was that I couldnt fit the old kellogs reflectors that you got free with cereal onto the wheels/spokes -
Next up was my beloved SNES. Christmas morning coming downstairs to this my mind was litteraly BLOWN. I remember I got street fighter 2 turbo and super mario allstars + world. My brothers and I got many a year of pleasure out of this, from multiplayer games of Mario Kart to the rediculously hard at times Mario games. This led onto the next best present on my list...
I got this the year it came out, the Sony Ps1. I remember this one well, my parents had left out the presents and I was sneaky and stayed awake till I heard them go to bed. I then crept downstairs and set it up. They had bought me Resident Evil 1 with the console and for those that arent familiar with the game it was quite scary for the time. So I started to play the game, unnaware of how scary it actually was, and there is a certain part of the game where zombified dogs jump out of a window with an almighty crash, and I think it's fair to say I think I not only woke my family but most of my street too lol
Just like the SNES, the Ps1 was adored too, I had many a great time playing on it, and both of those consoles have left me with a real love for retro gaming.
Would love to hear what you guys have gotten, or not gotten as the case may be, any stories (funny or sad) or any memories attached
Oh yes! I got one of those when I was a kid too, absolutely LOVED it, think it was something similar to this,
Here is another present I got, I was a massive transformers fan when I was younger and still watch the original animated movie and G1 series' from time to time 😛
