Hello GI crew! Today is my birthday and I am 26 years old! This means that I’m officially closer to 30 than 20, which has sparked some reflections on my childhood. So, what was the first game you remember playing? Mine might be Star Wars: Attack of the Clones on the Gameboy Advance! Not a particularly good game, but I remember it fondly. – Jonah Abraham
