DS: LEGO The Lord of the Rings. I think that was the thing that got me into gaming.
3DS: The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds. Probably still 1 of my favourites.
Switch: Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, 'cause multiplayer is always fun.
PS3: Digital Devil Saga. Also 1 of my favourites, even despite the fact it used to run quite badly.
PS Vita: Shin Megami Tensei: Persona. It has its flaws, but I don't mind.

Translation is an interesting subject, no?


NES = Super Mario Bros 3 (first game I remember buying with my own money)
Sega Genesis = Sonic The Hedgehog
PS2 = Gran Turismo 3
Gamecube = Super Mario Sunshine
New 3DS = Luigis Mansion Dark Moon
Switch = Zelda Breath of the Wild (got the console for Mario Kart, but it hadn't released yet)

@Anti-Matter I like that Lego City Undercover was your first 3DS USA purchase. I'm surprised they never made a sequel. I like the open world driving mission format better than the other lego games.

Also, LEGO CITY UNDERCOVER 3DS was my first ever original Nintendo game purchase back on 28 August 2013 (I still remembered the date since I wrote the purchase date for every purchased games I bought).
I started by one 3DS USA game in August 2013 and now I have more than 50 3DS games with region USA, Japan and PAL combined.

Just going to post the ones I can remember easily. In some cases I bought multiple games in a short time or got multiple games in a bundle with a used console.

Game Boy Advance - Golden Sun

DS - Professor Layton & the Curious Village

Wii - Super Mario Galaxy (discounting Wii Sports bundled)

Wii U - FIFA 13 (discounting New Super Mario Bros. U + New Super Luigi U bundled)

Switch - The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

As for 3DS, I can't remember whether I match with Anti-Matter on LEGO City Undercover, or whether I bought New Art Academy or Pokémon Y first, but I defo played LEGO City first.

‘You swapped three different N64 games for Pokemon Stadium? Where’s your pride? Your dignity?!?

‘…I traded it for a Pikachu’


Well this is an arguable list for me, as most of this will be Christmas gifts, even going into when I was actually buying games with my own money. (only exceptions are GBA, 3DS and the non-Nintendo ones)

N64: Pokemon Snap
GBC: Tetris DX, Frogger, Jurassic Park 2, some WWF game
GBA: Super Mario Advance
GCN: Luigi's Mansion, Pikmin, Super Monkey Ball, Smash Melee
DS: Super Mario 64 DS, Mr. Driller: Drill Spirits
Wii: Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz, Twilight Princess, Metal Slug Anthology
360: Lost Planet, Kameo, Viva Pinata
3DS: Pilotwings Resort, Super Monkey Ball 3D
Wii U: ZombiU

Ps4: Nier Automata

Non-binary, demiguy, making LPs, still alive

Bioshock Infinite Let's Play!:
LeT's PlAy BIOSHOCK < Link to LP


Obviously a lot of these are going to be gifts in this format but in any case.
All of these are excluding console bundle titles:
GB: Mario & Yoshi
SNES: Super Mario Kart, I think.... it might have been Super Mario World
GBC: Donkey Kong Country
DS: Mario Kart DS
Wii: Twilight Princess
3DS: Rayman 3D (there wasn't much on 3DS when I got it)
Wii U: New SMB U if you exclude downloadable titles. Nano Assault Neo if you don't
Switch: Breath of the Wild

There's a huge gap here but, PC. It's is the home of about half of the games I own. Hard to remember what the first game I brought on it was. In the very early days? I was mostly into shareware/demoware stuff which didn't cost anyone anything. If you include those my first games would be something along the lines of One Must Fall: 2097 or Captain Comic. Then into the early 2000s when I got a bit more into PC gaming I was mostly sailing the high seas which arguably doesn't count. Regardless of how many hours I put into C&C and Age of Empires

I know the first game I brought on Steam was Portal, like most other people who got into Steam with Portal. So you might argue Portal was the first game I "brought" on PC. However I do have a copy of Rayman 2 for PC which I picked out of a bargain bin at some point in the very early 2000s. So possibly Rayman 2 is the first game I "brought" on PC

Some of these are tricky - best guesses rather than definite.

Amstrad CPC 464 - Treasure Island Dizzy was possibly the first game I bought with my own money. Best guess. But in an era when you could buy games on tape for 99p, who knows?
Sega Game Gear - Mickey Mouse and the Castle of Illusion
Commodore Amiga 500HD - no idea. Syndicate was the first game I got via mail order
Sony PS2 - Final Fantasy VIII (yep, a PS1 game…). First PS2 game was Gran Turismo 3
Sony PSP - Virtua Tennis
Sony PS3 - Little Big Adventure
Nintendo DS - Phantom Hourglass
Nintendo 3DS - Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse (digital)
Nintendo Switch - Breath of the Wild (obvs)
