Well first console I had was an Atari 2600 but we had a Pong system at my Grandparents house which we probably had first.

It was probably something like Pong or Pac-man, can't remember since I was at most 4 when I played my first game. First system and game that I remember getting was a NES with Super Mario Bros and Duck Hunt when I was 5 or 6. Never did beat SMB even though i played it a lot.

No clue. It had to be either one of my neighbour's Atari games or possibly something in a hotel arcade (my family did road trips a lot when I was young).

I knew of the Atari and Intelevision as a kid, but the first game that I actually played myself was the first mario bros. on NES - one of those memories I'll probably never lose.

I'm pretty sure the first game I ever played was Combat on the Atari 2600. It would have been 1979 or so. The first games I remember ever being excited about, though, were Empire Strikes Back and Pitfall! (both on the 2600). I would have been five or six at the time. I definitely remember enjoying it. In fact, I can trace my love of all things technological to those early gaming experiences. Within a few years, I was programming little games with sprites and a joystick on a C64. Good memories.

when i was around 3, i was hospitalized for awhile with some sort of sickness i dont remember what, but i was in there for awhile. (i got better obviously). but the childrens hospital had this like playroom for the sick kids, and there was a donkey kong arcade machine, and i hogged that thing all day long.

Bummer about you being sick at the time, but that is a pretty rad playroom for sick kids.

Be honest: are you Billy Mitchell?

no, im not that big of a prick

Oh snap! Yeah, that guy is a pretty big asshole.

I can't remember which came first but it would either be Pitfall on the Atari or Frogger on a table top thing that my Aunt had. They both resided in my Grandparents basement by the time I got to them (I was 3). There were probably other games in the basement with the Atari and such but those 2 games in particular are what stick out in my mind as the first. I also apparently had a commodore 64 but I don't remember it at all. According to legend (actually according to my mom), when I got the NES for christmas when I was 5, I threw the commodore down the stairs because I felt the NES was so much better.

I think it was some Commodore 64 games. I remember playing MULE, The Goonies, and some Helicopter game, although I was really young.

Either Super Mario Bros. on the NES or Street Fighter II at the arcades. I'd have to ask my parents, but I bet they don't remember the first time I touched a video game (in any form) much less what game it was.

The first game I remember playing? I'd think it'd have to be Super Mario Bros. 3 on the NES when I was about 4-5.

Super Mario Land on Gameboy. Took me a long ass time to finally beat it but I was young so I have no idea if it was actually difficult or I was just bad at it

First real console was PS1 w/ FF7 on Christmas

Uhm. I think it was Alex Kidd and the Enchanted Castle. Really, when I think about it, I only remember jumping over a red car and rock, paper, scissors. Still, that game was the first puff of weed that got me into heroin.

The first game I ever remember playing was Kung Fu for the NES. When I was really young, my parents friends got a NES for their kids and I would often go over and play Kung Fu and Super Mario Bros.

Super Mario Bros on NES

According to my dad, I finished it in one sitting on my first go; much to his annoyance. I vaguely remember it, but I was very young.

Something on the ZX Spectrum.... too long ago to say what the first game was, we are talking games on cassette tape here.

I used to have a Speccy too. I remember having to wait about 10 minutes for Robocop to load up.

I can't really remember, probably some early-mid 90s edutainment software. Plus the computers at my first school were old enough to have oregon trail on them, so it could be that game.

My first console was the N64, so Mario 64 was my first console came, got it when I was like 5 or 6.

You're reminding me of my school days. They had BBC Micros. They also had what is laughingly referred to as a "computer club". In theory kids could come and study on them in break time but the vast majority were playing Chuckie Egg.

Too old, can't remember. Plus, there wasn't A first game ever. I played arcade machines with my dad when I was little more than a toddler, then 8 bit computer games with friends, then I got a PC with a ton of games on it at once and then a Mega Drive (yes, that's its name, deal with it). So yeah, it's really hard to narrow it down to one game. Rastan? Tetris? Maniac Mansion? Oh, Mummy!? Enduro Racer? Who knows...

First exposure to video games was playing Dig Dug on a PC in the 90's. No idea what year exactly since I was so young.

Eye of the beholder. Its a Legend of grimrock like game. It only had one save slot and you had to make a map with pen and paper. The drm appeared when you finished the first level, it asked you what word X from line Y on page Z of the manual was.

Ecco The Motherfucking Dolphin Son. I was like 2 when that game came out. I had older brothers and my dad liked toys, so I had the benefit of being born with video games around. Since its impossible to die they would just put me at the first screen of that game, and hand me the controller, and I would swim around. Apparently the first time I got the dolphin to jump made me squeal with delight.

My first video game was Pokemon Red and I received it on Christmas. I loved that game to death and replayed it numerous times. I have never caught them all because I didn't have a companion who had Blue.

I'm not really sure, some of my earliest gaming memories are of playing Pitstop II, Digger and a game whose executable was named CASTLE.COM on dad's work PC. I assume it was Castle Adventure, as it was that kind of top down exploration game with ASCII graphics, but it's possible there were more games with similar names and gameplay.

Neither of the games were mine, but something dad had gotten from some guys at work for my older brother (who never was much into games).

Pitstop and Digger were incredibly fun games at the time, Castle Adventure was terrifying and fascinating, though I'm not sure if I understood what I should do in it back then.

Something on the Lynx when I was around 5/6. Apparently the Linxus was horrible? But I'm pretty sure I had a lot of fun since those were the first video games I ever played.
