"What are you going to buy?"
"Well, I want to see if they have a Pokemon game."
I was in search for a very old game, Blue Version. When I was young, I was only able to obtain Red and Yellow Version. I have every other game (released in America I probably won't ever get Green Version) except Blue, so I decided that I would finally get the last game to complete my collection.
My mom drove me to a Gamestop by our house; luckily they were still open (they close earlier since they aren't in a mall). I walked inside and looked around as usual, my mom followed behind, waiting for me to pick a game. Once I was done browsing the other games, I headed over to the counter to look at the GameBoy Color games. There were only a few left.
"Excuse me," I got the worker's attention, "Can I get that Blue Version?"
The employee opened the case from behind the counter and brought it out. Of course, my mom had to ask the obvious question.

"Oh wow, Pokemon HeartGold!"
I plucked the shining game package from the torn wrapping paper, a grin stretched across my face.
Though I had already played SoulSilver a few months earlier, I was eager to start fresh, and play as a different character with new Pokemon to control.
That's why I asked for it for my 18th birthday. I was as excited as a child, and instantly started my new game.
Being used to a dark, underwater atmosphere, I smiled a bit when I saw the pixelated Ho-oh flying across the HeartGold title screen, its wings sparkling in the sunlight.
I began my game with the name "Gold". Original, I know. But as a reader of the Pokemon Adventures manga, I wanted to name the game characters after their comic counterparts. My rival was named Silver, and I chose Cyndaquil as my starter.
After wishing my in-game mom goodbye, I began my virtual adventure. Though I've been playing these games since Red and Blue days, I've always experienced a thrill when each game starts.

I sometimes hate Nintendo for making me want to take nostalgia trips into old games.
The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, still my favourite Zelda game to date, was due to be released for the 3DS. I would constantly fangasm while watching the commercials for it on TV. Seeing the images related to the game kept making me want to play it more and more; kept making me eye my old Gamecube because I knew I had the game for that system.
Eventually, I caved. Watching Link being mega awesome on the screen for what seemed like the hundredth time, made me want to revisit the land of Hyrule again. So, I scuttled upstairs and into my room where I hauled out the Gamecube and hooked it up to my small television set. I then rummaged through my videogame drawer until I found and pulled out the case for the Zelda Collection.
I excitedly popped the disk into the Gamecube and booted it up, bouncing in my seat slightly as the system's introduction played on the screen. I selected Ocarin

You decided it would be beneficial to take a walk that evening. Sleep had not come to you easily over the past few days. A change was in order. The road you took was long, winding and shadowed by the trees, so you brought a torch with you to light your way.
The breeze was chilled and makes you shudder once it touches your skin. You draw up the collar of your nightcoat around your neck in hopes of keeping warm and press onward into the dark, the branches of the trees reaching over you now, blanketing you in its brush.
But, as you stray deeper and deeper down the path, a gust of strong wind engulfs you, pushing you backward as though the goddesses themselves have begged you not press onward. Perhaps you should have listened if that was the case, but how would you have known that when the torchlight extinguished in that moment that you were to lose all sense of direction and wander into the forest.
By the time you r
