I played on my sibling's consoles (N64, Sega, etc), but was gifted a PS2 one Christmas which was the first console I could call mine and kick them off! I was given some cash to pick a game out and chose Sarge's Heroes for some reason lol. Fun game though! Lots of memoriesThe first game I remember truly getting into was a third-person shooter on the PlayStation 1 called Army Men: Sarge's Heroes 2. (I would've played SH1 first, but considering I was maybe five years old at the time...)
You're a green plastic soldier leading a squad of characters, fighting a giant army of tan soldiers. I don't remember a ton about the game, other than its mix of environments the soldiers fit right into, and "real-world" locations where they're tiny toys battling over beds and bathtubs.
This very day, somewhere lies my big plastic box of little plastic soldiers that I'd play with all the time. That game got my parents to buy a lot of molded plastic.
Speaking of text, In case you have not played it:Zork II, in the basement on my dad's IBM PC.
Duck Hunt for me, too! We had one gun controller that worked properly and one that was a little wonky, but they looked the same so it was impossible to tell until you plugged them in and played, at which point the sibling which got the wonky gun would whine for the good gun and force a swap next game.The first game i remember playing is Duck Hunt. The first one i actively remember is Super Mario World
