In October 1958, Physicist William Higinbotham created what is thought to be the first video game. It was a very simple tennis game, similar to the classic 1970s video game Pong, and it was quite a hit at a Brookhaven National Laboratory open house.

This is an easy one for me to remember. My first video game ever was Combat on the Atari 2600.

If you want to get into PC Games, my first was Decathlon on the Commodore 64.

On DOS PC, it was Pengo.

And damn I feel old now.

My grandfather, for a time, ran some kind of business that provided arcade games and billiard tables to local bars and restaurants and the like. He brought a lot of his work home with him, so to speak, for us grandkids. And a pool table for the adults during family gatherings. The first game I can recall playing is the tabletop version of Space Invaders II, in his basement.

Later in life, as he got older and could not properly care for all of the various machines he'd gathered over the years, he gifted me the Space Invaders II machine. I was able to keep it until my mid 30s, when circumstances forced me to part with it for far less than it was worth.

I know we had a console with Pong, but the first I remember playing would be Radar Rat Race on the Commodore Vic 20

Spy Hunter for the PS2. I remember it so well because it was the greatest and most fun experience of the entire year. After that, I just couldn't stop playing PS2. Spy Hunter, RE4, Twisted Metal Black, SOCOM, SEGA classics, Onimusha, those were some of my first games ever.
