Math Blasters on DOS...my mom caved to my whining and on an actual system it was Sonic 2 on Game Gear. She was skeptical of video games, but i turned out all right somehow (i think...)

I am way too lazy to think of something clever.

I can't remember...I was so little. It had to be either Super Mario Bros or Zelda II

For me it was Pong on an odd console that I even don't know the name of. It had two paddle-controllers and some switches. A turn-switch was for selecting one of the built-in games. They were: Pong, Pong, Pong and Pong. (Though it was named Football, Tennis, Squash and something else.)

Mine was the same thing...my parents had one from Radioshack and it was my first console. It predated me getting a 2600 by only a few months, but that was still my first. My first real experience was with the good old wood panelled Atari and my Grandma's house (she had a system before me!). Played a lot of Combat, Pac-man, and Ms. Pac-man growing up on that and that was my first real experience with video games.

I played a ton in arcades (Burgertime, for whatever reason, was my hands down favorite) but not until a little after I had my 2600.

You know I'm not entirely sure 100%. I think it was a Teenage Mutant Hero Turtles game - I remember playing the arcade game and being amazed by it (I was probably about 10 at the time - I was late getting into gaming) but I also got the platform version around the same time - so which I played first I'm not sure, but it was one of those Turtles games.

However I do have memories of sitting in a Star Wars arcade cabinet as a young child (think it was an Empire Strikes Back game) and distincly remember the joystick controller in it. I have no memory of actually playing it, though - just the look of the controller. Therefore I'm guessing I was just sat in it pressing buttons so that probably doesn't count.

Noire

Super Mario World at around three; at least, that's what I remember on the matter. I've been playing so long it's hard to remember, to tell you the truth.

There can only be one, like in that foreign movie where there could only be one, and in the end there is only one dude left, because that was the point.

Moon Patrol on the Atari 2600.

I'm not quite sure. The first game I REMEMBER playing was Link to the Past, but I might have played Bubble Bobble first, though I can't quite recall that one.

The best strategy in the game: go up stairs and pause balls.

@Corbie: :: bows, exits stage left ::

though I am honestly sad that stuff like Candy Land and Chutes and Ladders can be found in PC-game form nowadays. i hope board games still exist in board form in the future.

seriously, though, i'm pretty sure the first video game i ever played was Super Breakout on the Atari 5200.

StarBoy91

Pinocchio for the Game Boy Pocket. It's not as great as I remember it to be, but I still have fun with it every once in a while. Problem is: it's very short and easy (on all difficulty settings) a game to beat, there's barely any replay value present.

I am StarBoy91, and I love all things 16-bit =)

Something on the Atari 2600 (wood veneer version), I cant remember the game - I just remember the amazement at being able to control something on the television!
