Hi! I'm Jarfeh, I made this account a little bit ago but never really used it.. So here goes!

The first video game I ever played was Super Mario Brothers for the NES.
I wasn't alive during the 80's, so I think it's pretty neat that the first video game I played growing up was on a game console 20+ years older than me! :D

Hi and welcome. My first game was Super Mario Brothers, followed quickly by Zelda, Dragon Quest, Excite Bike and Golf. I grew up in the 80s. I'm pretty sure I still have the nintendo boxed up some where in storage.

Nemesis for NES (Gradius). Kinda traumatizing for first game... :D

Oh boy, the wonderful scrolling shooters, gotta love em, gotta hate them. I believe I had a shooter called Xevious on one of those multi game joystick thingies, and god I got pissed at it, great memories..

My first video-based gaming software was something called, Devil May Cry 5.

So far, this video-based gaming software fad seems like a hit! Hopefully it doesn't go the way of the telephone and vanish into obscurity.

Super Mario World.

The second game I ever played is easy: Super Mario Bros.

The first game I played is tricky, if pounding my paws on a few buttons cluelessly counts. It was Popeye. I'm sure of that. I'm a little confused about the medium. I don't think it could have been the 2600, because the graphics on that port are so poor that I don't think I would have ever recognized it as Popeye in the first place. I don't associate it with the NES, though I remember it looking more like the NES version. Information on the NES release history is vague in general. I'm seeing the US release dated prior to the nation-wide launch of the NES, but it's never listed as a launch title, and what are the odds that I would have encountered it before Super Mario Bros on an NES anyway? I actually remember it as the whole arcade cabinet. My babysitter took me to someone's house, and they had converted a closet into a room where a bunch of teenagers were gathered around watching this game, and I remember it being huge. Was it though, or is that just because it was novel and I inflated it in my head? I dunno. I can't even find conclusive confirmation on a quick skim that Popeye was released in the US as an arcade cabinet. �\_(ツ)_/�

Mine was Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, developed by BioWare. BioWare's basically dead now...

It certainly was. I played it many times.

I mean, I believe you, but that article doesn't say anything about it.

I suppose in hindsight the fact that original English language reviews of it exist suggests that it shipped outside of Japan heh

Hover over the first image: "U.S. Popeye arcade flyer." Underneath the image it says "North American arcade flyer."

Crash Bandicoot

I don't remember so well but my first one I think it was The Sims. I didn't have a computer back then. After that, when I got my first computer, it surely was GTA San Andreas.

One night on the TV news I saw a story about the craze surrounding a recently-released video game which was soon to become my first play: Space Invaders.

Space Invaders was a real thrill. However, I think it was either Donkey Kong or Pack-Man.

04-02-2019, 08:37 PM
Hello. My first game I played was Streets Of Rage on the Sega Megadrive. :)

04-04-2019, 08:03 PM
Dino Crisis my all time favourite. :)

04-04-2019, 10:04 PM
Something from Atari, maybe Pitfall

04-19-2019, 02:31 AM
The first one I played was Space Invaders arcade.
The first console game I owned was Super Mario Bros. for the NES.

04-24-2019, 02:18 AM
Super Mario World and Ms. Pac Man. (For some reason my late father really liked the latter game)

05-13-2019, 08:09 AM
I think the first game I played was Hogan's Alley at my local department store.

05-20-2019, 09:38 PM
hi there!
new member here, my first game ummhh, super mario or bomberman for nes.
old nostalgia, good times, no smathphone.

06-10-2019, 05:22 PM
hmm i forgot my first one. Console wise, it should be SNES, but i dont remember anything that time.

As for the first one i remember, it's on PS1, which is Spyro The Dragon. That time i was like, 5 or 6-ish XD

06-14-2019, 06:04 AM
As far as I remember, Diddy Kong Racing on the N64. I dreaded the silver coin challenges >_>

06-15-2019, 07:48 PM
Tony hawk pro skater for ps1, first soundtrack I was hooked on

06-18-2019, 08:27 PM
One of the Commander Keen games, I think. If not that, then the original Super Mario Bros or Castlevania.

06-22-2019, 05:09 AM
I think it was Battle Realms, I was completely addicted to it that I'd fight my way to the PC against my sister just to play it.

I still love it, even though it hasn't really aged well.

06-25-2019, 02:32 AM
My first was Zelda OoT. My cousin have N64 and I played it a lot at his house... one of my best..

07-14-2019, 12:15 PM
tetris lol, after that i got the chance to try pac-man in the arcade and i suck at both of them
