What Did You Get for Xmas? We Want to Know!

See that picture? I know the first thing you’re wondering is “why is that kid not wearing pants on the DualShockers home page?”  Well that kid is actually me, on Christmas eve in 1991. It was one of the most magical days of my life when good old Saint Nick (whom I later found out isn’t real) stopped by and dropped off a brand spanking new Super Nintendo Entertainment System. Although I had owned an NES and Master System before it,  I never received a console (because of the price) during the first year of its launch until then, so this was a huge deal. I was the N64 kid before there was an N64 kid. So what did Santa get all of you? Share in the comments section!

P.S. I assure you that i was wearing very short shorts in this picture. Who wears short shorts? Joel wears short shorts! Thank the lord for that strategically placed wrapping paper… this picture could have been a disaster.
