What Was Your Very First Video Game?



My first was sonic 2, one of the best if not the second best(sonic 3&k takes first place)I ever played.

It's a secret to everybody.
That would be Pokémon Snap. Oddly enough, even as I mastered the perfect shots for each Pokémon when I was five, the rest of my life I've been hopelessly inept at first-person shooters. Snap was a really deep game, actually- if you knew what to do, you could find tons of Easter eggs in each level. I just wish it had been a little longer. Later I got Pokémon Stadium, and Silver Version when I was 7, and I think my first non-Pokémon game was Donkey Kong 64, which I almost never played. The first non-pokémon game I actually liked was Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance. Good times.

Well, the first actual game I played was some DOS based baby game (Yep, even when I was a small child, I have been a computer nerd. :P). The first actual video game I played was Pokemon Yellow. Then, my first 3D game was Pokemon Stadium. After that, my first actual PC game was RollerCoaster Tycoon 2. Yep, even when I was a young child, I knew a bit about physics and tycooning...even if I could only beat the first few levels, and at least 10 people died every time I tried to do a scenario.

Pokemon Yellow...I loved that game, and still do. However, to this day, I still have not beaten it. I'm only up to the Elite Four. Before then, I was stuck in Mt. Moon, and when I got it, online guides weren't that common...or accessible to 5-year-olds. I dominated my friends in Pokemon Stadium, and even when I was about 6 or 7, I knew a bit about type advantages, but still believed in the "coolness factor" adjusting types. It is funny watching back in the past me struggling even though now I can beat these games without that much effort, yet still requiring a bit of perseverance.

For the record, the first game I beat was Yoshi's Island for the GBA. I spent weeks on the Bowser battle. :P

Since I've got the brain of a mentally deficit chicken, I can't remember it that well. But I do remember the first three games I ever played out of order.
Pokemon Silver
Pokemon Stadium
Super Mario 64

The very first game that I ever played was the original Quake back on our Windows 98' machine. My dad and I would play it a lot. And I even remember the first time I tried playing it by myself and was very confused by the controls.

Quake was a great game...

My Fantasy World
I don't know, don't recall that good....*Thinks hard*

I think it was a King of Fighters Arcade game. If I am correct, and I know I am close, that is when I fell in love with fighting games.

The very first video game I played was Pitfall. I have absolutely no idea where I played, but I think it was at my Grandma's house. I hate the crocodiles and moles.


It was Mario. I'll never forget these emotions when I was going to the next level. Such an amazing feeling! :)

I truly don't remember. I know my mom had the Sega Genesis and the NES when I was born. So, when I was about 2 or 3 I probably tried playing one of them. I think I first tried either Sonic the Hedgehog 2 or Sonic the Hedgehog 3 first. That's what I think...if not, maybe it was the Bugs Bunny game for the NES.. >_>;

Link's Shadow

Pokemon Sapphire. As for the first Zelda game, it was Twilight Princess.

The first videogame I've ever played was Super Mario All-Stars on the SNES, or maybe it was Super Mario World... The SNES was the first console I ever had, and I remember my parents used to play with us. Anyway, I was approximately 2 or 3 years old, I can't remember exactly. As for my first Zelda game, it was OOT, when I got a N64. So yes, I started playing videogames at a very young age. :)

As far as I can remember, it was Zelda, Ocarina of Time. Thats probably why the zelda series has my heart.

Oh gosh, this will take a lot of thinking...
I'm going to go with Super Mario World on the SNES back when I was around five. It's the first that comes to mind.
My first Zelda game was Ocarina of Time, when I used my poor brothers as instruction guides. X>
