The first video game I remember playing is a bit of a fuzzy memory but I remember the first 3. These were Age of Empire, Super Mario and GunBound.

Interestingly enough, Scorched Earth released the same year. A cool tank artillery game with similar mechanics as Gorilla.
I was mad for Scorched Earth and Scorched Earth 3D. Used to play at a friend's place and fill the map with craters full of lava.

The very first video game I played was Asteroids on an Atari. The first PC game I played was the original SimCity followed by Sid Meier's Civilization on a lowly 286 desktop PC with monochrome graphics, no hard drive, 4 MB of extended RAM and the operating system and games comes in a 5.25" floppy diskettes.

Some kind of nameless game for 286 achitecture from a floppy drive where you shot "airplanes" with a cannon

I played a lot of games in my childhood, but I don’t remember them very well and I don’t even remember their name and the only game I remember is Dragon Ball. I obviously didn't know what to do. I had been walking on the Snake way for a long time until I got bored and threw myself from over it (Only those who watched the anime will understand the suffering here)

The first that really engaged me was World Grand Prix on the Sega Master System. It had a really sophisticated track creator for its time.

I remember playing Prince of Persia 2 on a neighbor's computer. Later, when we had our own computer, I played NFS 2 & Fifa 98. I played some flash games via floppy disks too. But I can't remember their names at all anymore. But I had fun playing those, no doubt. :)

My first game, as I remember it, was Doom that I played on my friends' 386. I don't think it even had a dedicated graphics card until he upgraded to a Voodoo something or other (this was the mid 90s). Then he introduced me to the original Half-life and my addiction took off. I really owe that friend for introducing me to PC gaming. It's a bit of a shame that we are no longer friends. Marriage will do that to you (his, not mine, I'm a devout bachelor)

I go waaaaaay back. My family`s first home PC had a 33Mhz 386 processor and DOS. I was 5 years old, but i knew how to use the command promt to get to the games. And, oh may god, what a perfect bunch of games - original Prince of Persia, original Wolfenstein, Grand Prix Circuit, Sokoban ... Good old days!!
