What was the first video game and/or system that you played?
« on: March 23, 2013, 07:36:23 pm »
I can't quite remember what the first video game I played was as I was only about 4 or 5 at the time.  I was born in 78' and the first video game system I played was the Atari VCS(video computer system)/2600.  3 games vie for first in my memory: Frogger, Ghost Manor, or Pitfall.  I still have my Atari and I still play it on occasion.  I clearly remember being in awe when I played Super Mario Bros. on Nintendo the Christmas of 85.  What was your first experience with video games whether in the arcade or at home?

The first game I ever played was Pong by Atari. It was really simple, compared to todays games. No colors, just black board and white graphics. It made a bloop sound every time you hit the pong.
We thought it was so cool.

I think it was Pac Man but there was a shark one I liked, too. I didn't have a game, I played at my friend's house. I think it was Atari in the early 70's.

It was pong.  My parents were so excited when they brought it home.  They thought it was the niftiest thing.  Wish I hadn't thrown it out! Some fool would be willing to pay big bucks for it.

The first game I've played was probably Frogger or Number Munchers, on the old Macintosh computers.

Wow, My First video system that I played on was the Atari 2600, I was a bratty 10 year old at that time. First game on the atari was combat or (Tanks) as I would call it. second one was pong. Seems after Atari came out does anybody else remember the other games systems that followed? Intelevision? sega? then came ninetendo in 1985 that changed everything.  All good fun times back then. I'm still a bratty kid at heart today at the age of 45. I love my Xbox 360 with kinects.  :wave:

My first home video game was pong.  I've had almost every incarnation of most systems ever since.

The first I recall playing was Pong, followed by Super Pong (with smaller paddles).  Watching that episode of "That '70's Show" where the dad and Michael were talking about making smaller paddles to make Pong more fun just cracked me up!

I remember precisely what game I played.  I played Nintendo, and they had a game about Kirby, the bubble.  I remember that my daughter, who was then 8, was given a Nintendo by my cousin when we visited them for Christmas.  I was 35.  If you think that I was too old to play a game, to me that was the most fun I had ever had.  That was 1993; my daughter was born in 1985. ;D :D :icon_rr:
