The first video game you bought with your own money...

Recommended Posts

Hmm, the first game I bought with money I earned is a lot harder to remember than the first game I bought with allowance... That certainly won't be the first game I ever owned.

My first paid job was as a stock boy at a local grocery store. That must have been around the summer of 2000. I did a paid internship somewhere in 2001 too. I specifically remember buying Pokémon Stadium 2 for the N64, which had just come out when I was working at a toy store. So that would be a good candidate for being a first game bought with my self earned money. My first serious job started by the end of 2008. Up until then I guess I always bought stuff from the allowance I saved up. Most of my money went into Pokémon trading cards.

My last game was Donkey Kong Country Returns (Wii). By that time I had become a christian and realized I couldn't go on gaming.
