So do you guys remember your first video game experience?
I sure do, Gyruss for the Commodore 64
A lot like Galaga, but with a different point of view, awesome game from my memory although i'm sure if I played it today, i'd probably hate it. As is the case with most old games that I love to remember for nostalgia reasons.
I cant remember the first game, but the Sega Master System was my first console. Space Harrier, Black Belt, Alex Kidd in Miracle World, or Fantasy Zone.. one of those must have been the first game i played.
Then we bought a NES. And the first game I truly got immersed in.
I still remember having to wait for my oldest brother to finish Final Fantasy, then my next brother to finish it, before I finally got to play that game. The wonders of being the youngest. I definitely do not miss games that only one file can be saved on it.
I think that's mine too; got my NES w/Power Pad in Christmas 1988, but I may have played SMB before that, or played a friend's Atari 7800 or or another friend's SMS.
Sort of wish I still had my NES - it was a bit beat up, as the top vent was missing a piece where I smashed my NES Advantage into it. and blowing in the carts wasn't that fun, but there's something nostalgic about that time.
