When I was a kid, I played the Legend of Zelda on the NES. Since the game was called 'Legend of Zelda,' I entered Link's name as Zelda (thinking that was what his name was supposed to be). Little did I know, that was the code to make the game much harder. I gave up almost instantly and hated the series for years, never realizing I had screwed myself over.-Jason

One summer, my PSX memory card started to act up. It wouldn't save anything correctly. I had just borrowed Final Fantasy VII from a friend, I was determined to beat it regardless of my memory card. I would play for a couple of hours a day and then I would leave the PSX on overnight and wake up and go at it again. This went on for about 6 days. Finally, I got to the boss and I beat him. I jumped around my room. I never felt so good in my life! Then I realized there was a disc 2…-Kerby

The first word I ever spoke was "Pikachu." Apparently, my parents had me watching the cartoon series a lot when I was a baby. I didn't learn "mama" or "dada" for another few months.-Julio

When I was a kid and went to grade school, my dad would pack my lunch and put challenging Star Wars quotes in them. When I got home from school, I would have to answer it in three ways: who said it, when in the movie did he/she say it, and in which Star Wars movie? Now whenever I eat lunch, all I can think about is Star Wars.-Matt

When I was around 6 or 7 I would occasionally get my parents to rent Yoshi's Story. I was terrible at the game and didn't play it all that much, but I loved listening to the title music.-Cassie

I'm taking a Chinese class at school because I wanted to know what people were saying in Firefly. One day we were talking about family, and the professor told us that "Mei mei" means "little sister." I looked at the guy next to me and we almost simultaneously yelled "Like in Firefly!" The professor asked us to quietly leave the class.-James
