    To be a NERD, my first arcade game was Astroids. There was one at the local super market.

    My first game on TV was on a FairChild F and I don't know the name of the game(s), I just recall it was a multi-cart or something like that.

    I was way too young, might have been Ghostbusters or Popeye on my dads Spectrum.
    First game I owned was probably Super Mario Bros.

    I don't remember the first video game I played, but I do remember what got me into PC gaming.

    I wish I remembered the name of it(someone please help), but it was basically a tank/fps type of game. You got to pick a tank, and then you drove around a barren landscape picking up weapons to destroy other tanks.

    After that, I transitioned into WoW and COD, as well as Medal of Honor. Ah, good times.

    I think my first game was Adventure (on the PC). Although I did play Pong whenever I got the chance.

    Damn I'm old.

    Oops I remembered wrong. I think it was Balloon on OS 6? No color of course.. One just held the mouse button down to fill the balloon with hot air to rise and fall to avoid pelicans...

    Mine was Super Mario Bros for NES.

    I remember being naturally attracted to video games, wanting a Nintendo when Ames sold them and not even knowing what a Nintendo was or did.

    Then my eyes were opened at a friends house when I got to play Super Mario Bros for 2 seconds (since he was one of those friends who were like "Hey, let me show you this!" and yanked the controller away).

    I finally got a Nintendo for I believe my 10th birthday.

    Probably Pong on The Odyssey Game Console. The first computer game was probably Ancient Art of War or Wizardry on a Mac Plus.

    Tetris was the first game I played, it was on my father's Gameboy and it was sometime in the early 90s. Was a lot of fun.

    The first game I actually wanted to buy was Kirby SuperStar on the Super Nintendo lol

    Either Sensible Soccer (arguably still one of the best football games ever) or Chaos Engine at a friends house on his Atari ST, circa 1992. Great times!

    The first games I ever played were probably the original Bugdom and Wingnuts. However, The one that is best implanted in my memory is Oni, and Myth III, both from Bungie. Unfortunately I can play neither now that you can't use Rosetta on Lion. Not that i NEED to play them, played the crap out of those things...

    I dont think it was pong but pong was the first game console we owned. Space invaders perhaps. We got a Apple II in 79 as well and I remember typing in games from magazines.(cassete tape drive)

    Earlier then that their was a visit to a Technology Museum where they had something like a submarine telescope that you looked through to fight planes but I dont actually know if it had a screen.

    It was either Flight Unlimited or Commander Keen on DOS. My dad used to set it up for me and help me play. :)
