Oh for sure! I miss those Arcade days, early 80s on a Friday night with a pocket full of quarters or tokens depending... There was this little hole in the wall place down the street from me that would blast rock music through the night. Next door was a pizza/pub load up on pizza and beer and stagger next door to play Gorf, Pac Man etc. Great times! This younger generation doesn't know what they're missing.
We still have things like Dave & Buster's, but arcades used to be all over the place. Now, everyone has the best gaming available right in their houses.

Super Mario All-Stars on the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES.) Essentially the closest thing one could get to a remaster at the time, All-Stars was a graphical and audio upgrade for the first three Super Mario Bros. games including "The Lost Levels," previously released only in Japan because they were deemed too difficult for Western audiences. A wise decision, as the Mario franchise could've met an untimely end as the brand may have been met with frustration and remembered disdainfully.

While it's only really remembered for its 'lost' levels, it should be worth noting its soundtrack and improvements to the original music are incredible for the time. No radical changes or missed beats unlike Crash Bandicoot: N-Sane Trilogy or Spyro: Reignited Trilogy, just an all-round improvement.

I think the first games I played extensively probably has to be Need for Speed Rivals, Hawken, and Rayman Legends

One of the first games I played on my own console at least probably has to be Rayman Legends on the Xbox Original (Not to be confused with the Xbox 360 which means one, or the Xbox One which is yet again means one, or the Xbox X series which could also mean one.) *sorry I really don't like Xbox* I used to play that game so much though, at least I did till the disk-tray stopped opening, haha.

I also strongly remember playing the crap out of Need for Speed Rivals when the Play Station 4 first released in 2014. That has to probably be the first racing game I ever played other than 4x4 Evo on the Xbox Original. I remember always raging because my brother played the game as well and was always better than me just because of him being older and playing racing games for more than double my lifetime.

I also remember in 2013-ish when I was probably around 6 or 7 years old I would sneak out of my room into my parents closet and steal the Verizon WiFi router (Which was very shitty and way overpriced) and I'd go sneak into the kitchen and boot up Hawken on the kitchen PC at 9 or so PM (I know such a rebel) and I'd play that for probably at most an hour before I'd get caught by my dad and get forced to go back to sleep, Those were good times I had little to no responsibilities, now I'm 16 work 2 jobs, go to school, and manage a 9 acre property.

Haha. I really don't know what you mean by Xbox Original. If you're talking about the original first Xbox, Rayman Legends was definitely not on that. It came out first on the Wii U and used the second touch screen. Then they remade the game to not need the 2nd screen so they could put it on PS4/Xbox One, and PC. As far as I can tell, Rayman 3 was the only Rayman game that was on the original Xbox.
