Speaking of horrible and sticking to the topic, one of first games if not the very first game I have memory of is Contra. I was so bad at that game... But it didn't make stop playing it and making experience wore for anyone mad enough to play with me :D

Not sure it was the first one, though it's the one I remember especially clearly - Battletoads & Double Dragon . It's still kind of epic to me

Hmm hard to recall, but gonna try. Found it from Memory Databank after brief search: Played w Sleek White C-64 & more later w great Amiga 600 Bought it b in those good early gaming days & it was nice game to relax with. Still is with Amiga Emu. After that starting from transition to 90's played it also with Great Amiga 600. Then some great games like Spy vs Spy, Defender of the Crown & many others. With golden Amiga 600 wide beautiful gaming univ. opene upd into stratosphere <3

Wish good weekend & August to everyone & game on (y)🎮🖱⌨💻 - Fedaygin -

UPDATE On Next Day: Ah haha ouch so Forum Mod removed the actual links that show details about the game that i mention here. It doesn't have anything to do with spam & not selling advertising any product & still got removed.. :D :eek: Crappy rules policy when non harmful links not allowed. Guess that can't even link "Adventures of Mary Poppins" sorta content x) Oh Wicked Wide Web how you manage to surprise almost every year.. Guess i have to write down that game later today cause can't show it with Normal Link that sends ya to good Review Like page. *Hou hou any well behaving children out there* :unsure: Kindly: Peaceful Veteran Gamer

I think it was an original Master System that came with a port of Hang-On and Safari Hunt! It was a bundle cartridge.

I remember really enjoying the shooting game with the light gun, but I think Hang-On was a bit advanced for my four-year old self.

It was very soon after my dad returned it to the store and got a Mega Drive instead (with Alex Kidd, Altered Beast).

My first game that I remember is Where in the world is carmen sandiego in an old XT with a yellow monochrome monitor in the house of my cousins. My older cousin would play and I would look at her play for what it looked hours. When I was a little older I would help her play with a dictionary and/or enciclopaedia to find the flags and whatnot. Later she would let me play by myself. At that time I learned the flags by memory :p

The first game I remember playing could have been on a colecovision at a friends, I think it was pong but the depths I have to sink to is lost in the mist and darkness at the bottom of my memory lol. Then there were the handhelds when I was about ten Astrowars, Galaxy invader that are very vague memories. I may of had pocket watch donkey Kong at the same time but they didn't really grip until I played on the Spectrum 48k at a neighbours house. Wheelie was the game and then that was it I was hooked I had to have one. I remember the feeling of people talking about the spectrum in class before register saying how good Knightlore was and the sadness in my soul of not having one as I wasn't one of these rich kids in my class :D. Then Xmas 84 came round. I'll never forget the smell of that glossy box and it's polystyrene. I still have it but I'm the one who smell's now :D

I am a classic gamer. Just to give my age a little the first game I played was Pong. First gaming system I played was an Odyssey 3. First game I played on it was Pick Axe Pete. First PC game I played was U Rogue. So I am very old school.

This is a very hard question indeed since there are lots of games that I played back then but let me see if I'll be able to add more details to it.

If Tetris and Tamagochi are being considered video games then it would probably suffice to answer the given question.

The first RPG thatI played in PlayStation was Thousand Arms ~ this really gave me all the love that I have for video games. :)

The first game I ever played, huh. I played a saga game. But as for a computer game, I believe the first ever computer game I played with Minecraft (free edition - java) but nowadays I don't use Minecraft for nothing except a benchmark. Heh, Soon after that I got into roblox. It seemed more promising to me at least, it had many games. And many different things. My first computer is a computer I always loved. Though I never built it, I had great performance. Though when I was younger I used to mainly just watch stuff via Hard Drive. Like Hamtaro or other stuff. My stats (I think) were:

cpu - pentium 4
ram - 4 gig
psu - ?
case - basic gateway case
hdd - 160 gigs + 500gigs (movie drive)
optical drive - DVD rom burner
windows - vista

Thats all I really remember about it.

The first game I remember playing was Turok: Rage Wars for the N64 when I was 3 or 4. It was a big deal because my mom was pissed at my dad because he just bought games he wanted to play. Ironically that and Gauntlet were my mom and I's favorite co-op games lol.
