My memories - in no particular order (well chronological actually)
Getting the last ticket to the EA gamer of the year comp (2004) after Jerry qualified in nba street and Fifa, and elected to use his Fifa qualification!
Made top 100 (or something pretty good) in madden 2005 on the OG Xbox
Playing rainbow six with two other brothers on our home Lan, and carefully planning our tactics via headsets (sleep out, house, and second house!)
Bought halo 2 at midnight release (Central Park Riccarton) then me and my brother were some of the best in the world (while NZ was only place it was released in!)
Driving 45 minutes with big 29" tvs, switches, consoles and headsets (and plenty of cable) for monthly halo LANs - and getting smoked by the "Kalluminator"
First thing upon arriving in Indiana for a masters - walk over the highway (not an interstate luckily!) to buy a newly released 360 (and tv shortly after)
Halo 3 midnight release (GameStop honey creek mall)
A friend I made whilst teaching activity parts of his Pe class coming over and playing halo most afternoons after classes done - he then introduced to me to MW2 after he bought a console too
Calling the courier company to hold my Xbox one at the depot so I could pick it up earlier than they could deliver it! (Day One)
Driving 45 minutes away to get NBA2k14 from a guy who got it with the warehouse deal and didn't want it that same day
Getting the call to say I won a halo console from the warehouse's midnight release of halo 5!
The Xbox VIP event earlier this year - well worth the trip!
Great idea for a thread D4nzy - loved reading other people's memories!
