Solitaire. Dad got a windows laptop from work in probably 1991 or 1992 so I would have been 3 or 4. I remember watching him play it and then him letting me play. It was the first time I was allowed to stay up past my bed time, which was 8.

My parent's pong machine. Though I might have dug that out of storage sometime after the woody Atari 2600. The first game I played on which was Combat. I do know my first RPG was Adventure. If you can call Adventure an RPG. First NES game was definitely Super Mario Bros. First Sega Master System game was Alexx Kidd. First Genesis game was Space Harrier II. First Super Nintendo game was Super Mario World. First PS1 game was Final Fantasy VII.

Nothing's been quite as memorable since, though I do know the first PS2 game I played after I actually owned the system was Ratchet & Clank: Deadlocked, and I didn't do much gaming at all between the late nineties and the mid 00s since I was busy being cool and poor, making music and being in a band or three.

Help me out guys. The first game in my memory comes at 3 years old but it is blurry as hell.

The first game I ever played was on an Atari console, I would assume the 2600. I used a one button joystick, I remember that fully. Big red button.

It was a sidescrolling(?) car game where you drove to the right, and would have to squeeze your car through little tunnels and in between walls. I remember it in black-and-white, or at least a rather monochrome color scheme.

Anyone know this game? I'd get a kick out of unraveling this 24 year old mystery.

I have a really hard time being sure what the "first" game I ever played was, but it was probably either Parsec or Hunt the Wumpus for the TI-99/4A.

The first game I remember is top gun on the nes. Also fuck that game. Besides random pinball games. Years 3-5 were pinball heavy. I'd take one side and dad the other. Real team building except that he was wasted and in hind sight let me down with his performance.

I had some neighbours and cousins with games back when I was quite young, and in some cases I can't even recall if I was playing or watching them play back when I was like 5 or 6. So it was either Link to the Past, Sonic 2, or DOOM 1 or 2.

I think either Snake Rattle and Roll, or Super Mario Bros. I can't really remember which was first, but they were both significant to my childhood that I remember them.

Super Mario World. The SNES was the first gaming hardware I got, and SMW came with it.

Man. Something on the Commodore 64. The first games I really remember playing were Barbarian and Winter Games. I remember thinking Barbarian was really cool looking, and I don't think my parents understood that it involved beheadings and such. Winter Games I was really good at a few of the events (bobsled, Biathalon) but could never do some of the other events (figure skating) in the game. I was about 4 at the time.

Not Now Said the Cow back in the mid 90s. It was an edutainment game that was a retelling of the Little Red Hen story with a hip-hoppin' crow trying to make a bowl of popcorn.

I don't remember the exact game. What I do remember though is my parents got me an Atari 2600 and a stack of games from a yard sale when I was a wee lad. Some of the games I remember from the stack were Adventure, Pitfall, Barnstorming, Fishing Derby, and Pole Position.

Super Mario Bros. was the game that cemented my love for the hobby though.

It was either Donkey Kong on the ColecoVision or Berserk on the Vectrex. Man, I loved the Vectrex.

Donkey Kong 64. First and hardest video game I've ever played. I was about six years old when I first played it and that was around 2000. Still never beaten it though.

It was probably Duck Hunt but I'm not 100% sure. I know the first one that I owned was Pokemon Red for the Gameboy (I had a Gameboy pocket).

I really can't think what the first video game I ever played was.

The first game I remember properly was Duck Hunt on the NES, but I have earlier memories of messing around with an Amstrad computer that ran games from cassettes.. I don't remember any details of the games, just that they took absolutely forever to load up.
