And I thought I'd embarass myself when I said that "Ping Pong" and "Hockey" on the old 1970's rig that my parents got for free from a door to door vaccuum salesman for listening to his sales pitch. But, I see I'm not the only guy who was around in the 70's. Then my friend was lucky enough to get an Atari for Christmas and I'm thinking we played Asteroids and Stargate first.

I'm an avid gamer, but I've been trying to think of the first games I remember playing and really loved. I remember sneaking into my cousins dad's study to boot up his mac to play Monkey Island, where in the World is Carmen Sandiego? And Myst (which I wasn't very good at). If you're a gamer, what do you remember playing and why?
Electric Racer, the video game spinoff of the 2009 reboot of the 1971 Television show

My friend's dad had an original Magnavox Odyssey. You actually had to put a plastic overlay over your CRT TV screen which would inevitably be held on by static. We went over there as much as we could, but the games were kind of boring because almost everything was basically Pong.

My dad had bought the first tennis game that we played through our telly, using basic joysticks to ‘bat’ the ball (very, very basic line graphics) across a net.
Literally spent hours playing this in the early 80s!

I can still remember what exactly one of my first games were, that being Sonic Rush Adventure. Finished it years later, at least technically. Always been a Sonic fan.
