Super Mario 64 and Super Smash Bros...how can your first N64 game NOT be SM64?

Yeah, my parents got me into the game a little late. I missed out on the NES and Genesis, but the SNES came with that so that was my first.

NES, i would say i had a couple of games, ninja turtles, super mario brothers/ duck hunt.

#17 Posted by MrRedwine (430 posts) -

mmm...  something for the Atari 2600...  Maybe Bump n' Jump or Pack Man.

#18 Posted by FancySoapsMan (5834 posts) -

I think it was Super Mario Allstars

#19 Posted by ReyGitano (2467 posts) -

Donkey Kong Country. Yo, that game is hard, but it taught me important life lessons... Life is hard, and people will steal your bananas if you let them.

Ocarina of Time on my own N64. We had a NES but that was technically my sister's.

#21 Posted by cnlmullen (900 posts) -

Super Mario All Stars and Super Mario World.  
 
I was too young during the SNES days to get the most out of the system; I had a lot more fun with the PS1 and PS2.

The first Alex Kidd game, it came built in to my Sega Mastersystem.

Super Mario Bros/Duck Hunt
Zelda II: The Adventure of Link

 I got those both at the same time.  I tried playing Zelda II again earlier this year and I still can't beat that thing.  Though I understand it much more now than I did when I was five years old.

Yeah, I'm kinda old.

#33 Posted by TwoLines (2813 posts) -
@NoelVeiga: Owning Sonic 1 does not mean you're old.

Owned, meaning what? Cause my parents bought me games when I was little.
So I didn't really own any of them. My brother had the Super Mario Bros cartridge first, then a bunch of NES titles.
I however, had the pleasure of 'owning' (as it was bought for ME not for my brother)
a CD of Dragonheart the game, for the Sony Playstation (Yikes). As PSX was MY first console.
#34 Posted by JoeyRavn (4977 posts) -

I probably must have had some games for the NES, but I was waaaaay too young to remember them (I vaguely recall playing Popeye and SMB), so the "first" game I can say I truly owned should be Killer Instinct for the original brick Game Boy. Gosh, that game always made my heartbeat spike when I reached Eyedol <.<

#35 Posted by Murtaug (309 posts) -

Phew.. thread is making me feel old around here. 
 
Granted, my first console was a hand me down, the Odyssey, and I honestly could not tell you which game I played for it first.

#36 Posted by xMP44x (2193 posts) -
Sega Rally. That was also the first game I owned, conveniently. My first foray into the world of handhelds was when the PSP-1000 released, and my console came bundled with Daxter. The game was pretty weak, and if I remember correctly I traded it in for a copy of Gangs of London, which wasn't much better.

Well, no, it's kind of unrelated. Sonic 1 was the first console game I had, but at the time I had already moved from a MSX to a PC. 
 
First games on those? I don't even remember. Goody? Dustin? Most people haven't even heard about the crap we used to play in the 80s in Europe.

 Super Mario Bros./Duck Hunt    

#39 Posted by TwoLines (2813 posts) -
@NoelVeiga: Haha, yeah, I tried to stay as far away from those as possible.
I loved the Dangerous Dave on PC, but still, PC's not a console.
I guess Atari was the first console I've played.
#40 Edited by Scapegoat (131 posts) -

This game blew my mind. It was a 2D platformer but had a huge inventory of weapons, ammo which ran out, intricate levels which had multiple entries/exits, moral choice decisions, crazy ass story with multiple endings... 
 
Later I found out that a lot of these elements were lifted from this "Metroid" game... (Nintendo wasn't very popular where I lived... it was all Sega)

 Phantom 2040 for Sega Genesis/MegaDrive

First I played? Super Mario Bros.
First I owned that was mine and mine alone? Rygar.

Tony Hawk's Skateboarding on Ps1 :) that kicked of a trend of non-stop Hawk playing until THUG 2. 
First game on my Ps2 was Burnout 2, that obsession with Burnout has continued until today.

#46 Posted by GoofyGoober (937 posts) -

I too got an N64 with two games. Twisted edge extreme snow boarding and Super Mario 64.

#47 Posted by ShaunassNZ (2128 posts) -

I remember having a Sega Megadrive II (I'm 15 now, FSS, I can remember that thing?), but I remember getting a PSX with Crash Bandicoot, and a green memory card. Oh the days.  
 
Got a N64 around the same time when I got my PS2, WCW was teh shit (4 PLAYER!)
