Nostalgia Moments in the Vidya

We all have them, iconic games that we have grown up with, these games make us put on the rose tinted glasses of nostalgia and wallow in fond memories.

The game that springs to mind for myself personally has to be Final Fantasy 7, back when Cloud was not all bawwgrimdarksad but "let's mosey!", the game where houses fired rockets, back before the censors when you had to dress up as a woman to rescue Tifa, lotion rubban on people, along with more side quests than you can shake a stick at. So many funny moments, sad moments, and epic moments (Raid on Junon anyone?)

Personally for me the song that makes pure manly tears shed has to be "Interrupted by Fireworks". So my fellow fans of vidya and blogging. Just for 2 minutes 50 seconds listen to the following song and remember back to simpler and easier times.



How about you? What game (if any) defines your childhood and brings back fond memories of a time when your only concern was how to hit the next level? Let me know in the comments!

@Scootland: So do I, but still I know it would never live up to how we want it to be, so perhaps it is best that it isn't remade? :(

@Jordan: Oh yes the early pokeymonz, Pokemon Yellow was my first, pikachu :3
