Hi, I'm 26 and I've been playing games since early childhood when my father bought an Intellivision and an Atari 2600. I didn't really get into video gaming until my mom bought a NES for my brother and me in 1988. I was a subscriber of Nintendo Power from the first issue until about Issue 188. During the 16 bit era I only read Nintendo Power so it's cool that this site has old GamePro and other magazines that I missed out on. The 16 bit era was my favorite by far.
