Your parents made you live in their basement when you were a little kid, nordlead? That's so sad.

I second Kasz, and I did live in my parents basement when I beat it because I was somewhere between 5-10 years old.

In addition to being overall one of the greatest games ever made, this game has some really wonderful pieces of music (my favorite is on the Waterfall level).
