What's the first game you played?
« on: 02 Mar 2007, 13:15 »

The first game I ever played was Commander Keen 4: Secret of the Oracle. I was about 5 and couldn't get enough of the pogo stick action. I downloaded it again today for nostalgias sake and beat it in about 3 hours, but it was still fun. What was your first game?

I can't 100% remember, it was either Masters of Mischief (that educational game, it was for my Mac LCIII) or Super Mario Brothers on Gameboy for christmas.. that was a big day for me. Now I play games for a living!

Way back in the day, I used to obsess over this Jeopardy-esque game on my elementary school's computers. I'm talking about the old, old Apple computers with the two tone green screen with the five in floppy disk. Hells yes. But as for more actual games... probably Oregon Trail in elementary school as well. Nobody in my family had any gaming systems for a very long time. The first system we had was Super Nintendo, and I know Super Mario Brothers was the first game my brother got for it.

I think the first video game I ever played was Duck Hunt on a friend's NES.. Or Zelda or Mario, I'm not sure which he let us try first.

Ummm...I would have to say that it was either Pac Man, or Oregon Trail, on this ancient Apple computer my "best friend" at the time owned. It was waaaay fun. Way more fun then verision you can buy today. Seriously. --Those count, right? Console game wise...errr...I once attempted to play this game called "Zombies Ate My Neighbors", but my friend got so frustrated with me not understanding how it worked that she gook the N64 controller away from me, and had to show me how it was done. I didn't really get to play anything else until my family was finally suckered into buying a PSII four years ago, and I played, I believe...Pirates: The Legend of Black Kat or whatever it's called.

I lived in Asia for the first half of my life, so the first game that I played that I understood (you try playing cheap Chinese bootlegs when you're five) I think was Diddy Kong Racing.  Maybe Sonic, and maybe . . .ugh, something else.  Can't remember.

Duck Hunt on my babysitter's daughter's NES...followed by some old Mac game (in the black and white days of what I think was OS 3 or 4) called Catacombs or something like that.  Easy to get to a certain point, and then it got balls hard.  Reminded me of the original Prince of Persia.

Wonderboy on Monster Land on a little tabletop arcade machine outside a food and drink kiosk in Townsville one fateful holidays to visit my grandmother.

I would insist on playing it whenever we were near the beach the Kiosk resided next to.

It signalled the start of a long, long love affair with videogames.

My first game was Super Mario Bros. for NES. I'll never forget it because my parents got it for me on my third or fourth birthday. The reason I'll never forget it is a combination of the game just being fucking awesuma, how hard I thought it was, how my Dad was the only one who could get to the second level, and the fact that my grandparents had gotten me some kind of slotcar racing track set that I didn't touch for the whole time. My parents had to force me to play with it because my grandparents were pissed off I just wanted to play Nintendo.

Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade on the ATARI. You couldnt save so I managed to finish the game once after playing for a good hour. People threw knives at you and you could punch them to make them dissapear and you got 50 points. Incredibly frustrating game but memorable.

I'm not sure on the name, but it was an Atari game that was a total Frogger ripoff.  IT was the exact same thing, only you had TWO roads to cross, not one.  And, you were a bright orange chicken.  Anybody know what I'm talking about?

PONG, actually.  I'm not that old.  However, my grandmother had a pong machine and we used to play it when we were, like, 3 years old.

My first console game besides the 3-game package that came with the NES (you remember the old Mario/Duck Hunt/Track & Field cartridges?) was Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, the first one.  My dad bought it for us after we saw the first TMNT movie.

The first game I ever played was the original Diablo for the PC. That game hooked me on gaming and I've loved the hobby ever since. Everything about that game was brilliant- the atmosphere, the action, the complete randomization. To this day, no game save Diablo 2 has been able to replicate the brilliantly addictive action of Diablo. Hellgate: London might come close because it's all the same team, however. But Diablo holds a special place in my gaming library and a permanent spot on my hard drive b/c it's just so damn good (and, if you play with headphones and the lights off, scary as hell).

I can't remember what game it was, but Pong or something close to it was one of them.  I can describe the games and the system though.

The system was some kind of console.  It used paddles (i.e: a dial, not a joystick) that had one button.

Games included were:
- a colour version of Pong
- Some kind of cowboy game where you shot at each other from either side of the screen.  There were cactii in the middle of the screen, I think.  They blocked the shots, but were also partially destroyed by the bullets?
- Some kind of top-down River Raid-esque game where you flew a plane and shot things on the ground.
- Some kind of side-on game where one person played as a plane flying over a field, and the other a tank (I think?) and you shot at one another.

There were others, but I can't remember them.
