    Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome to the "let's date ourselves horribly" thread. To wit: For me it would be some Atari 2600 game, though I couldn't reliably tell you which. Probably Asteroids or Combat.

    The first game I ever played was something I remember nothing about on a computer I remember nothing about. I think we were borrowing it for a short time.

    The first game I can remember playing was probably Bustout on an Amstrad CPC.
    Irrelevant on further examination of the rest of the thread.

    I don't know.

    Probably some Atari game. I was like 5 years old maybe.

    But I remember my first PC games - Max Payne and Medal of Honor: Allied Assault.

    Pretty much. Space Invaders, around about 1979/80.

    The first game I ever played was Pong on a one-game-console that you had to connect to the tv.
    The second first game I ever played was Jetpac on Spectrum.
    I feel old now...

    Edit: really good thread idea, dude!

    Possibly some kind of black-and-purple clone of Hovver Bovver, I think...

    I think it was Prince of Persia on my Dad's old (like 1991 old) PowerBook.



    Oh, the terrible, terrible memories.

    I think it would have been Pong. Then some kind of Galaxians clone on the Intellivision.

    Can't recall the first game I played, but I played Podd (more of a parser-based plaything than a game) in nursery school when I was four (early 1995?)

    Some variant of 3D Tetris on Windows... 3.0? Must have been somewhere around the early '90s.

    I had to go and look up the name of which Atari it was that we had in the house, but we have an XEGS. Not sure which the first one actually was, so I'll go with Missile Command that was on the hardware. I was probably 3 at the time when I first played it? Gosh, what a mistake my parents made on that day!

    I'm not sure, other than it was probably when I was about 7, on a Commodore 128. I definitely remember the Ghostbusters game, and Silkworm, but my first was probably Bard's Tale, which I remember almost nothing about other than that I basically got nowhere in it.

    Something on DOS in the late 80s, on an intel 386. Not sure what though. Either Captain Comic, Tetris or Alley Cat. Fuck knows as I'd be like 4 or 5 though.

    Alley Cat was fucking awesome. The first reasonably modern game I remember was playing a Panzer General 2 tournament against my Dad where the winner got a McDonalds combo.

    I lost, and never paid. I feel vaguely bad.

    The earliest ones I can name are Boulder Dash and International Karate for the c64. Any of those two might've been the first but can't be sure since I was so young at the time. There were also some other c64 games whose names I can't remember.
