One of the Mega Mans for the NES. I think 6 maybe?
" 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...This is one of my "I loved this game but can't remember the name" games. I never owned it, but I used to rent it from my local Blockbuster all the time. I loved it, but I was never any good.
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)
" NES, i would say i had a couple of games, ninja turtles, super mario brothers/ duck hunt. "Pretty much this. I don't remember getting the NES or games, I think I was young enough that it was just something my house had. I do remember my brother getting an N64 and Zelda: Ocarina of Time on Christmas though. That was so exciting!

When I was born my dad acquired an Atari 5200 and a Sinclair ZX Spectrum for me to play as I got older. So, I didn't have a first game, I had a fist few bags full of games. A few of the ones that stood out in my mind are Paperboy and the goonies for Spectrum, Empire Strikes back and Solaris on Atari.
Still have those consoles both in perfect working order to this very day.
I'm not sure if it counts, but PONG was (of course) integrated into the Super Pong console system I had in the late 1970's. I remember there was also a "handball" variant and maybe a "hockey" one, as well.
As far as cartridges go, I picked up Space Invaders, Night Driver and Combat (came with the system) when I got my Atari 2600 a year or so later.
"Super Mario 64 and Super Smash Bros...how can your first N64 game NOT be SM64? "
I was sort of thinking the same thing. xD
My very first console game was that game with Mario and it had a mouse that didn't work, and you could play music, and paint things... Wait a second, I'm going to ask my Game Encycopedia (my husband and his best friend)... Mario Paint. They rock.
Yoshi's Story for the N64, along with the original Banjo Kazooie. My parents didn't buy me a game system or any games until I was 14 or so. I had a very generous God-Mother who bought me my N64 and PS2. I remember playing Gran Turismo 3 for the first time...Those were the days.
