    First video game you bought with your own money?

    For me, it was the original Need for Speed: Most Wanted. I had bought it in the Spring or Summer of '06. T.I. was rapping in the game to "do ya thang" so I was like, "You got it, bro" and defeated all 15 racers in the blacklist. Then Dean McKenzie was like "Send everyone to capture this guy" to his female partner and I was like "Nope" and outran him and the entire police force. Good times.

    The first one I bought myself.. That's a good question.. I'd have to say that'll be the Crash Bandicoot-series..

    NHL 95 maybe or Maximum carnage. How about maybe the death of Superman, but I think the first game that I've bought was MortalKombat the first one.

    First video game you bought with your own money?

    With my own money that I earned from my first job, it was Need for Speed for the DS.

    I'm pretty sure it was Killer Instinct. I had to save my allowance for house chores for a while but I finally got it.

    I had to think long and hard about this one, I got some games with my first computer, but that doesn't really count. We also used to do a lot of hiring and tape copying back in the day, but I am erring on the side of one of those cheap tape games from codemasters or mastertronics.

    I think it was this....





    and then this

    Can't really remember, but if I were to guess I would say some Star Wars game on PC. Good days.
