    We have baby videos of me sitting on my mom's lap and playing a Winnie the Pooh computer game, so I take it that that's the first one that I ever played.

    Pac-Man on the Atari or Super Mario Brothers, Duck Hunt for the NES (at some point we got the Legend of Zelda) I MIGHT have played some sort of game on the family IBM computer. But I am extremely sure that it was either Pac-Man or one of the NES games.

    I cannot guarantee that this is the first game I ever played, but it is certainly the earliest memory I have of playing a game, and it is of Crash Bandicoot on Playstation which was released in 1996. Great game but very, very challenging.

    I'm not sure, but it might have been 'Super Mario Bros.' or something like that. :D

    Either Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back or Theme Park World for the PS1, those were the days... I never actually finished that Crash Bandicoot game, I even played it a few years ago and still couldn't finish it!

    I still play the PS1 even today, the greatest console of all time in my eyes.

    Wow I'm old!! the first game I played was space invaders on a commodore. It was hooked up to a 13 inch black and white tv (standard def!!).

    Man have I come a long way. Now I play my games on the 360 or the PS3 on a 58 inch Samsung Plasma HDTV!:D

    I don't remember... my first video game was a Super Nes.
    I have great memories of playing Donkey Kong Country 2. Maybe that one was the first... not sure.

    1 game ever: think it was tetris on gb / super mario land 1 (gb) (my own posession) / or Alex the Kid on SegaMD (but i had to go to a friend for that)
    1 game which blew my mind: teenage mutant ninja turtles lost in time (SNES)
    1 star wars game "Dark Forces" ..was a doom look-a-like (PC)
    1 SW game which hooked me even though it was not that good: SW Rebellion (PC)
    the game in which i invested more time, then any other game in my whole freaking life: League of Legends

    For some reason, I Always get lost while trying to play one of the Dark Forces/Jedi Knight games... :eek:
    I think I never finished any of them. Later on, I used cheats in order to pass the level I was stuck in.

    My first computer was something we had before the Commodore 64, I am pretty certain it was an Atari.

    I remember a game called Dig Dug, and some other game where you had to jump over monsters to get to your space ship / rocket... I seem to remember a car racing game as well...

    I loved the darker theme of Crash Bandicoot 2 - a sense of evil triumphing good for a change, which we don't see too often in games. More significantly, the title was similar to The Empire Strikes Back! With Cortex as the Emperor...;)
