The first video game you played!
could have sworn there was a thread like

Think back to the first time you got your hands on a video game, either you were a young one or maybe you're someone who just recently got into gaming and wanted to try out how video gaming is like. Which one was it? What console was it on? How old were you when you first got into gaming?

Of course, it doesn't *have* to be Pokemon. My very first game was this:

I know that my family had an SNES until I was about 2 or 3, but I don't think I ever played any games on it. The first game I do remember playing, though, was Sonic 2 on the Sega Genesis/Mega Drive, which is still one of my favorites to this day. Even though we got a few more games after, Sonic 2 (and later NHL 95) were the only ones I played on the Sega. Actually, I didn't really start to get into gaming until we got our PS1 (still miss the times when my dad would take me to Blockbuster to rent a game every month or two).

Super Mario Bros. for the NES. Back then my parents were adamantly against videogames, so the only chance I had to play the Goomba-stomping original was at the babysitter's of all places. Farthest I got was World 8-1 by using the warp pipes, but to this day I haven't been able to beat that level xD

Oh man I remember when I first played a video game.

For me, it was the good old PlayStation classic Crash Bandicoot.

The furthest I can look back and remember is Super Mario 64. There might had been something before but honestly I can only remember so little from when I was 3.

The first game I remember playing was the original Prince of Persia; that game was solid! O_o

Talli November 22nd, 2012 2:58 AM

The game I can rememeber playing is: Sonic the hedgehog 2 for the sega Genesis that game is the best in my opinion.

Oryx November 22nd, 2012 2:58 AM

The first game I probably played was Super Mario World, because my family has stories of me with that game and I wasn't even walking back then so I doubt I was playing many more games. The first one I remember though was probably...Yoshi's Island?

The first game i ever played was either Mario or DuckHunt, i don't exactly remember.

Pvt Tamama November 22nd, 2012 6:09 AM

My first game was on my dads old NES it was the first final fantasy
I still have it and the old NES and still plug it in every once and a while to play the game was really song especially for a 5 year old who had a 4th grade reading level but not a great understanding of things ha

Rivvon November 22nd, 2012 11:10 AM

My first video game was actually Pokemon Crystal, ha! The first non-Pokemon game I played was probably Super Mario 64. I still love it to this day!

Esper November 22nd, 2012 11:20 AM

Duck Hunt! My cousins had that along with Mario and this track game with this pad you ran on. That's got to be the first one I played. I can remember them cheating with the pad by using their hands.

Dreg November 23rd, 2012 11:09 AM

Bubble Bobble when I was 2 or 3, back on the old c64:


Ironically, this was the level I died at the first time I played. Coincidence?

Yellow Silver Nostalgia November 23rd, 2012 11:45 AM

Probably something like PAC-man or Pinball on the PC.

ahmet476 November 24th, 2012 1:42 PM

Was either Mortal Kombat or Mario on NES.

TwilightBlade November 24th, 2012 2:19 PM

I can't remember THE first game I played because I had a lot of games to play. When I was 3, my older brother was 16, so he went in and out of the house (social life luls). When he was 18, he moved out and left his NES and Sega Genesis. He left a chest full of games! For sure, I was playing games by age 5 then.

I often played The Legend of Zelda, Super Mario Bros., Excitebike, Duck Hunt, and Contra on the NES and, I guarantee you, I played Sonic the Hedgehog on the Genesis to infinity and beyonddd.

The first video game I played was Super Mario 64 for the Nintendo 64 I finished the game with my grandma's help in about six months.

NatureKeeper November 26th, 2012 6:59 AM

Super Mario Bros.

It was magic, needless to say.

And after 10 years of trying, I finally beat it. (With the aid of Save States on the 3DS.)

Poke Fox November 26th, 2012 8:25 AM

The first game I remember playing was "Bubsy: In Claws Encouters of the Furred Kind" for the SNES. It was the first game that my grandma bought when she got me SNES for my birthday, I can't remember exact year, around 1993 or 1994.

White Mage November 26th, 2012 9:22 PM

The first game that I can remember playing is probably Donkey Kong Country.
There used to be a SNES in the waiting room for my doctors office when I was around 4 years old, and the only game they had was Donkey Kong Country. I remember completing the first level and thinking to myself, "Wow, I'm so good at this game! They should give me a medal or something."
I still completely love DKC :)

Other than that, I think the first game that I owned and enjoyed was one of the Pajama Sam games for PC. Anyone familiar with the series? (or Spy Fox, Freddie Fish, Ok...)

Mr Cat Dog November 29th, 2012 12:26 PM

I have no idea what it was called - and Wikipedia/Google have provided no help - but the first game I can remember playing was a Taz (i.e. the Looney Tunes character) game for Game Boy where he's on an island and has to eat things or something. It wasn't Tazmania or Tazmania 2: Escape from Mars, as I can vividly remember the Game Boy cartridge and it doesn't match up to any of those... but I have no idea what the actual game was called, which is a shame.

Pinkie-Dawn December 1st, 2012 1:43 PM

I remember fondly that my first video game is Super Mario 64. Oh the sweet memories of collecting those power stars, avoiding Jolly Roger Bay like the plague, and messing around in the castle.

Ivysaur December 2nd, 2012 12:54 AM

Super Mario All-Stars. Don't remember which one of the four included in the package, except maybe Lost Levels- I'm sure that one was not it XD

Spartacus December 2nd, 2012 1:00 AM

First game I played was...Prince of Persia, introduced to me by my Dad. I used to love it so much but now I hate it so much xD

Minato Arisato December 3rd, 2012 9:04 AM

Donkey Kong 64 for me. I'm pretty sure I played games on the old Gameboy, but I was too young to remember much. I blame my dad for my current obsession with video games.
