Wow...the first games I can remember playing are ProAm RC, Dragon Warrior (well mostly just watched my Dad), Mario, etc on nintendo. Winter Games on my old PC. No idea what the PC was, but it was on an actual Floppy Disk (5.25 in), SimFarm on the PC on a 3.5 inch disk. Pitfall on an Atari. Again no idea what atari it was because I was too young to care.

My parents tell me I could get a good way through Mario by the time I was 3 or 4....lol. I've been playing nintendo ever since.

Hide and seek. Or was it ice and water? Don't remember.

Oh, perhaps you mean video game? It was something on Atari. I guess ping pong. It was like 2 brackets (bats?) turning a ball (a big pixel really) to each other.

The first real game to my taste was Cross Blaim on MSX.

First PC game was called Bomb I believe, or what I can remember. The good old days of 386DX. No sound card no CD-ROM no windows no mouse no... man, that sucked. but was really cool.

Ooh. I know that game. I have a copy somewhere, on one of those red third-party cartridges that never worked right.

First game I seriously played (that I can remember at least) was Star Raiders, also on Atari 800.



That warp noise brings back memories.

This is kind of a cool video. Keep an eye on the details in the background.
