Default First Game?

What was the first game you ever played? Personally Final Fantasy VIII was my first game, and I sucked so bad at it..

Shamus. It was a little guy going through a maze getting keys to unlock doors. The goal was to solve the mystery of something. Can't remember. It was for the Atari 800 with a floppy drive.

Pong back in the late 70's

First PC game was Doom on my old 386 with 33MHz CPU and 4MB of EDO Ram.

My earliest "game" was Logo, playing with turtle graphics. Later on: Lode Runner, Test Drive, Xenon, Ultima and FF series, etc., and some Chinese and Japanese games that probably don't have appropriate English translations. I started from cassette tapes and 5.25" floppies; first machine was X-80 (8-bit). I appreciate both old games and new games.

Adventure - A pure text-only game that started out on mainframes then moved to PCs when they came about.





Now that I think about it, I'm pretty sure I played Pong before Adventure since Pong was played from a console.
