My father had a PC as long as I can remember. It was the 90s and the first PC what I can remember had Intel 80286. We had monochrome screen and no sound card just that beeping speaker. It had only DOS. Maybe Windows 3.1?

I cannot remember what was the first game what I played. The first one what I remember was Mario (a clone for DOS). Maybe there was a trick what we did not now, but we couldn't pass the 4. level. Despite of that we played that first three level countless times.

My favorite games from that age are still great to play: Warcraft2, Lost Vikings, Raptor Call of the Shadows, Jazz Jackrabbit, Doom1-2, Prehistoric 1-2, Transport Tycoon, Commander Keen

The first game I remember playing is, sadly not a PC game, but The Simpson's arcade game. I must have been 3 years old when my dad lifted me up to reach the arcade sticks lol.

I remember playing the original Pacman game for the first time at a hotel lobby arcade when I was a kid. And that was around the 80's. I feel old already

The first videogame I remember playing was the first installment of The Sims.

My sisters and I would play it all day. Not knowing much about the games mechanics back then, I would send them all to a pool where they would ultimately die and haunt the others that went in the pool thereafter.

The first game I played is a little fuzzy, It was either Super Mario Bros, Teenage Mutant Heroes (Ninja but I'm european) Turtles or Batman on NES. They all bring very vivid memories (as do others but later). I'm just unsure which was the first one of those I played.
