Thinking back makes met think of a bunch of "first" games I have ever played.
But - I think some of the most memorable are:
PS
Ape Escape. A fun game I loved playing as a youngling.
MGS: Snake Eater - One of the most awesome games I have played - till date I struggle to get a game that rivals it. (Maybe I just have nostalgia filters on)

PC: One of my first games was Battlefield 2 and Crysis.

But if you ask what was my very first games on PC...
Its either pinball or Teletubbies game XD

@RonakBunch I loved Prince of Persia! I must have been 9-10 years old when I played it last time, but I still remember the rush when I tried to leap over the deadly traps. I also remember that the dying part of the game was pretty graphic, being imbedded by spikes and whatnot.

Wolfenstein 3D with my father while sitting on his lap. You might think that shooting nazis isn't a greatest game for a small kid, but actually we had a lot of fun with it!

When I was in 4th grade, while waiting for school to start we played PONG. It was pretty much the coolest thing I'd ever seen. Late 70's.

I guess it depends on what you class as a video game, but I have memories of playing both Treasure Island Dizzy on the ZX Spectrum in the late mid 90s and some sort of Magic School Bus game around the same time on our first PC.

I think the earliest game I can remember playing was Frogger on an arcade game when I was 7 years old which was at a gas station in 1986. There were free lives to play and only got to play a little of it before my mom made me leave. I really didn’t want to. :(

I remember playing a Frogger type of game, your character was a frog and you had to jump on water lilys to cross the lake. And the water lilys blow off after time.
I don't now what game was that.

It might have been Football Manager or Microprose Soccer on the Commodore 64.
I dont know if it was actually called Football Manager though. I remember you could save your progress on the tape, but that only worked about half of the time ...
Probably my favourite game back then was Boulder Dash. I could get trough the whole game without dying once. Had I played it today I probably would have thrown the TV out the window. FRUSTRATION! :sneaky:

I don't remember the first game I played. But the first game that made my childhood awesome was Resident Evil 4.
At that time, that was the game I use to play hours without taking a single break.

The first video game I ever played was Combat on the Atari 2600.

Yes, I am an Old Skooler and I have never grown tired of games down through the years. They have always fascinated me.

( do you mean the first PC game I played )The first game I remember playing was pong and a pinball game on a cartridge machine called a VC 4000 around 1985, I only had the two games. the controller for the machine looked great there was a lot of buttons on it which would make you think the machine was brilliant and it was.I did have a zx spectrum but I gave it to someone with about 200 games, but I had the VC4000 for a long time. if you ask me what PC games I first played I started playing them around the time of half-life and the MEDAL OF HONOR game's. they were very deer but worth the price of around 200 pound at the time......
