I remember my grandmother buying me the original Rayman on the pc when I was like four, and remember that my parents told me that there was something wrong with our copy of the game because no one in my household could get past some level fairly early on in the game. I now realize that their was nothing wrong with the game, the problem was the game's brutal difficulty and no one wanted to put up with it. My parents did save the game but I wasn't able to play it until recently because of it's lack of compatibility with modern operating systems and my lack of knowledge of the existence of dosbox.
The following year I got an N64 for Christmas and got a few games along with it. I believe the games were Mario Kart 64, Toy Story 2, Pokemon Snap and Banjo Tooie; Later I got Super Mario 64 and can remember playing it every night with my dad when he got home. We played it all the way to the end, with that being said I believe he was the one who made most of the progress through out the game.
