What is the very first video game you ever played?

Recommended Posts

My first game was Super Mario Bros for the very first Nintendo! I remember playing it when my mom and dad were sleeping when I was about 4 or 5.

From the Family game systerms, I remember playing the original Mario on the original Nintendo system.

 

But when I bought myself a Gameboy Advance SP, well it was Pokemon Ruby. I needed something to play to keep myself from getting bored.

My first game was Mario Kart. When my dad got me a gameboy advance, my first game for that was pokemon red. I still have it today, but it doesn't work sad.gif...and the advance's screen doesn't show the games anymore either.

I was young enough that I didn't start playing computer games until they were more developed, so I never played Mario or anything. I played some weird games based on the cartoons of the time before it, but I like to think of the first game I remember specifically as the first I played: Dungeon Siege. I was at the age where the same thing never gets boring no matter how many times you do it, so I played in the multiplayer-only world nonstop until I was extremely high level, then ran the highest-level dungeon I could easily get to over and over again. I did sometimes go to other interesting places, though.

 

I know this isn't about my first game, but I feel like I should share this since it's very funny. I remember how I did the same thing I did with Dungeon Siege with two other games, maybe more, since I was still young enough to never get bored with the same thing. First was Treasure Planet: Battle at Procyon, a game based on the animated Treasure Planet movie. I almost always ran Skirmish mode with the exact same map, exact same fleet (quite often just 1 ship), and exact same enemies, which consistently ended with me dying awfully or winning easily depending on whether I remembered to change the difficulty. Good times.

 

The game I repeated the most was Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy. I ran through the single-player campaign over, and over, and over again, which went a lot faster when I discovered the cheat codes. I realize now that it's no fun without a challenge, but back then I hated even a small risk of losing. I never, ever changed the sequence of missions and probably didn't change the force powers I chose. I think one time I managed (with cheat codes) to finish the game in five or six hours. I did the campaign so much that I now know close to every single line in every single cutscene of the game, plus most of the speech in between. It's kind of creepy how well I can recite it. My memory has faded a bit on some of the exact words since I haven't played it in a while, but I still remember a lot. In addition, I know almost everything about all the maps and have gotten extremely good at combat. With careful observation and cheats like noclip, I also discovered a lot about how the game functions. I will always remember Jedi Academy fondly.

PC: First game was clue finders or some sort of educational game... grandpa was big on educational games and believe it or not it was actually fun.

 

Console: Mortal Kombat was seven and just hit random buttons my favorite character was Reptile ^^;; Only managed to play it at my friend's house, because my mom would've been horrified to find out I was playing such a violent game. Hehe... happy.gif

My first videogame was Tetris, for the gameboy color. I was almost obsessed with it, the music was catchy too.
