Default What was the first games you ever played?

Do you remember the first time you picked up a controler? What was the first set of sprites and polygons you saw?
Mine was :
1st Super Mario Bros. NES
2nd Duck Hunt NES (damn dog pissed me off)
3rd Mortal Kombat SNES (can't remember the exact name)
4th Super Mario 64 N64
5th Banjo Kazooie N64

These games, although old are some of the best games I've ever played, and all of them were played around the age of six.

So what were your first games?

My cousin had a sega megadrive, and I reckon the first thing I saw on that was sonic, although I forget which one. Then he got an N64 and diddy kong racing, which my entire family became addicted to. We even rented controllers just so we could get more people playing. Around this time my Dad got into PC gaming and as a result my mid childhood was filled with AoE and Half-life. Dad was worried that HL had affected me, and with good reason - I used to play through the hazard course over and over, get to the part where you get the guard to open the door and butcher them all, hacking their bodies apart with the crowbar. Nice.

Finally, I got a PS, and have been gaming ever since.......

Well, my first game was Spyro 2: Gateway to Glimmer on the Sony PlayStation. The car ride home clutching my new PlayStation was one the fondest moments of my life

If I can recall correctly, I think it was either Goldeneye or Mario Kart on my friends N64. The first game I owned, I think, was Fifa 99 or Tekken 3.

Good times

Cant Remember Exactly. Sega, Sonic. Nintendo 64, Super Mario Bros. After that was the PS, on that, first game was spyro. My older brother played the hell outta that game. Then it was PS2. Then on into the Xbox 360 and finally the PS3 (my brother bought it with his high school graduation money)

Good games in all of those.

My youtube channel. Feel free to stop by and have a look if you're interested. I do Airsoft, some warhammer related videos, and gaming videos.

I think it was PONG, on the defense computer mainframe at my dad's work. ( he worked for the ministry of defense, and they showed me the mainframe place one day... )
