    For me, its the Nintendo classic games franchise that influence me a lot and the main reason why I'm into tech and gadgets nowadays. Also the reason why I became an IT specialist as my career. To be specific? Kid Icarus!

    I know most of us writing here in Postloop had to grow up playing video games of some sort. Ever since the start of gaming consoles Atari, Nintendo, Dreamcast, Sony Playstation, Xbox etc., we never stopped playing didn't we?

    How about you?

    I don't know if there was any one specific game for me, but I grew up on the old Super Gameboy and NES games. I think I'm a bit more resilient towards failure because it was basically expected that you would die, and you would die a lot, but each time you'd get to know the level a bit better and where the traps and pitfalls were and eventually you'd get better. I think that learning to keep trying is an important lesson.

    Games might have moved on since then, but we never did stop playing.

    I'm not sure if choosing one game is possible for me because since I started playing games in the early 2000s I played all kinds of games from different genres. First one that comes to mind is Rome total war which I got to play at my friend's house after school all the way back in 2004. It blew my mind as before that I was not aware that a strategy game can look like that. I used to play for hours, trying different tactics and different cultures. Strategy games are still my favourite type of games, especially the grand strategy genre. The other one I would mention is Colin McRae Rally 2.0. Racing games were some of the first ones I got to try in general, but nothing left an impact on me as much as this one.

    The most influential game for me is Nintendo classic game especially the Mario Bros. Who doesn't know Mario and Luigi. This game makes me happy every time I played it from childhood until today. I remember when I saw any merchandise with Mario Bros. design I always cried for it so that my parents buy that for me. And I think that game influenced me to eat mushroom. Mario Bros in Nintendo influence me on who I am now.

    When I was young my parents couldn't afford to buy a game console for us. So I had to go to my cousin's house and play his Playstation. I got to say it is the most influential game I have ever played because it introduced me to games that are high definition and role playing games. Sure I have tried Mario Brothers, Sonic Boom and Street Fighter but nothing beats playing the Playstation. They've got WWE, NBA, GTA and Final Fantasy! Those were the days of my life were I got to play without my mom scolding me because she is far from my Aunt's house.

    It has to be Maniac Mansion: Day of the Tentacle. It was the first game that stimulated my analytical skills and not just reflexes. It taught me to be observant and logical. Any decision you make will either push you forward or get stucked. Even choosing the best dialogue can be a challenge. Not to mention it gives you a hint of history. This charming RPG's storyline and concept is timeless.

    I mostly grew up with the games made by Valve. I started with Counter-Strike (WON version) then fell in love with its original game, Half-Life. Never knew the USE key until I was six.

    Until then, I still play Half-Life until now. Tells me sometimes, if you can't speak, your actions will.

    Who don't know Super Mario Bros? Mario is the mascot of the video game industry, Super Mario Bros. features Mario where he goes around multiple levels, stomping on enemies and collecting coins to reach Princes Peach and rescue her from Bowser. it has been tremendous success that every nintendo console has this available to play on.

    Every year of a child’s life is precious, but when it comes to development, the first five are the most important. This is when a child becomes the person they are going to be. It is when they learn appropriate behaviour, boundaries, empathy and many other important social skills that will remain with them for life.

    Unfortunately, many children are missing out on these vital skills because they are not going through the steps needed to learn this behaviour. And one of the main reasons, according to Dr Madeleine Portwood, an educational psychologist and head of clinical services at the Dubai-based consultancy Ebdaah, is that technology is replacing human interaction.

    The most influential game of my childhood is Pokemon games. Back then, I always watch Pokemon series on television. And when the Pokemon game was released, I almost get addicted to it. My mother always scolds me because I am still awake around 1 A.M to 2 A.M just playing this game and I still have a class early in the morning. I even borrow my classmate's game boy just for me to play the game. Up until now, I still play a Pokemon game on my Android phone.

    For me, it was the first three Spyro games! I got a demo of the first one not long after I got a PS1 and it was unlike anything else I had played. I loved it so much. Even my mom enjoyed playing them! We each had our own save files and would help each other. I'll never forget how excited I was to get the second and third ones when they came out! Naturally, I picked up the Reignited Trilogy when it came out. It has its issues, but it really brought back a lot of memories!

    In my case, I think it was Assassin's Creed II. It was one of the first games I bought and the one whose storyline moved me the most. I also learned a lot about History, especially the Rennaissance.

    Final Fantasy series is the best for me. I played final fantasy on SNES to PS3. You can see how gaming really develop on that series, from the 16bit graphics up to the present high quality CGI, the FF series is really nice. It has the best stories too for children and all us children at heart.:):thumbsup:

    I could say that Mario Bros is the most influential game during my childhood. I mean hates Mario Bros? It's the first ever game that I played and it was memorable because my father is the one who introduced it to me. It was the start of my enthusiasm to video games
