It was The Legend of Zelda or Super Mario Bros on the NES. Hooked ever since.

The Intellivision followed by the Atari 5200 and 800. Man, that was a long time ago.

Major League Baseball on the Intellivision was probably first. My mom actually bought the Intellivision before I was born (the copyright date on tis baseball game is 6 years before me) and I remember playing this before I got a NES. I even played it against my dad, who doesn't play video games at all.

I also remember playing the TMNT game for the PC (it's the same as the first NES one. The one with teh dam level where you disable the bombs) fairly early too.

Man, some games in this thread bringing back some memories.

While Gyruss was my first game I played, I didn't really fall in love with gaming until the NES, played games like Wizards and Warriors, Paper Boy, Larry vs Bird, Ice Hockey, A Boy and His Blob, Mutant League Hockey, Double Dragon, MLB Baseball. Oh how I loved the NES.

But my first PC game was A-10 Tank Killer 2: Silent Thunder.

Probably Towers of Hanoi on a Texas Instruments computer. A black and white screen, and the game was on a cassette tape.

One of two things, not sure exactly which one it was.

It was either playing Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego at home,
or playing Gorillas at my Grandpa's house. Both around age 3. Not that I could understand what I was doing on the former.

Pong on the original Magnavox Odyssey. I was in awe of a system that had paddles and a light gun. Granted, I was only about 4 at the time.

Mine was super mario bros on the NES, I got the system in about 89. I've still got it, just replaced the 72pin connector and cleaned it inside and out, works better than it did new.

You mean you don't get any joy out of beating the crap out of your NES?

I remember with my old NES, it would only work if you punched it a few times, then stacked a game cartridge on top of the other one inside the NES itself.

Now that I think about it Lemmings might be my first PC game played... It came out before Raptor.

First for PC was definitely Doom which is kind of funny since I was like 5 at the time.
without a doubt. Tecmo Super Bowl was indeed the best thing ever. i still play it when bored with my SNES emulator.
awesome that theyre making it for XBOXLive. updated rosters and all i guess. thats so sweet.
