I remember very clearly the first game I played. My parents had a Spectrum 48k ordered and it arrived (I think) with a tape of example games. The first one to load was "Breakout".

I have some blurry memories of Pong on an old Atari, but Breakout is the first one I remember getting my hands on and playing.

I remember when I was a little kid my parent's found my sister's Genesis in the garage (she never really cared for video games). It had a copy of the original Sonic the Hedgehog with it and I absolutely loved it. Too bad my sister decided to give the Genesis away a few weeks later.

Not including the computer games that I was playing for who knows how long before an actual video game? Pokemon Silver. On my eighth birthday when I was given a Gameboy Color and both Pokemon Gold and Silver with it. I do not remember having any video games before then.
you are wonderful

When I was 9 I got my first game, a PlayStation 2 game called Burnout 3. Believe it or not, I had finished the game just yesterday. The halt-up in time was because I hated racing with the US Circuit Racer. The speed was great but the control was horrid.
Ask a question, or make a suggestion of what I can do on

The first two I can remember are Pokémon Red and Kirby's Dream Land. I played them for hours taking turns with my brother. And they both remain some of my favourite games.

Pokemon Pinball and Red if I remember correctly. I can't remember which was my first, and I think that's where my Pokémon interest sparked.

Adventures, are sometimes even the simplest things.

The first game I remember playing is Super Mario World or Super Mario All-Stars. Not sure which one it is, but it was definitely a Mario game on the SNES. Maybe I played something before that (my parents had an Atari), but I really don't remember.

I think it was Kings Quest The Princeless Bride, Shivers, Alone in the Dark, or Laura Bow: The Colonel's Bequest. One of those games.

The first video game I played was Super Mario World back in '94, when I got the SNES and Super Mario All Star + Super Mario World bundle. Still have to this day.

It actually was a Pokemon game. My first video game was Pokemon Red back in 2000 when I was 7. My first non-Pokemon video game, I believe was Ratchet and Clank but it's hard to remember if I played any games beside Pokemon before that.

I think the first video game I played was Super Mario World for the SNES at my cousins' house. Or was it Sonic the Hedgehog 2 on the Sega Genesis? I can't remember which I played first, but I do remember I was horrible at them.

My very first game that I ever played was this Jeopardy game that was on the computer we had when I was maybe 5 or 6. It was fun and I never took a correct answer for granted because I was just completely guessing.

I played my first video game when I was 3. I remember back then we had a Master System with "Ghost House", "Global Defense", "Rescue Mission" and two built-in games, "Safari Hunt" and "Hang-on". I don't know which one was exactly my first, but since I remember "Ghost House" being my favorite of the five, this is the game I usually credit for being my very first video game.

The very first game I played was Super Mario Brothers 3 for the NES. I remember it quite well. It was my favourite game for quite a while. Super Mario World and Sonic The Hedgehog 2 are the other games that I think are the furthest back in my memories.

My very first video game was Command and Conquer: Red Alert. It was a really addicting (and it still is) RTS game that had some difficulty in it. I played it for a long time till Tiberian Sun came out, then i lost the game and a couple years later i bought the The First Decade which contained Red Alert aswell and i started to play it again
