I posted earlier in the thread that Super Mario Bros. was my first video game, like many others here. However, I'd say the games that turned me into a "gamer" all came out during the N64 era, when I was in high school. Those would be Super Mario 64, Star Wars: Shadows of the Empire, and Goldeneye.

According to my dad, my very first game was Duck Hunt for the NES. Specifically, the one that shared a cartridge with Super Mario Bros.

Although the first game that I remember playing was Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back for the PS1.

The first games I ever played also were Mario Bros. and duck Hunt my parents bought a Super Nintendo some time in 1991 or 1992. The first game I ever owned on was SimCity 2000 it was a surprise for New Years 1995.

Decap Attack and Splatterhouse are my earliest memories of video games, but there's probably something predating that.

PC: ComixZone and SimCity2000. I remember finding some really cool game library on Windows way back and playing the hell out of those two. I could never beat the 2nd map on ComixZone.
SNES: Primal Rage, Super Mario Bros, and Kirby Dreamland.

Those were so far back I can hardly remember anything aside from the fact that I failed miserably at them. The first games I remember playing were Runescape and Diablo 2.

Some day I want to create a Mr Plinkett style 3 hour review of why Diablo 3 is the most soul crushing disappointment of my entire life. I cannot name anything else that hurts my souls as much as Diablo 3.

Street Fighter II. I always have a fondness for that series even though I'm still just as bad at it as when I first played it.

At first I remembered playing Donkey Kong Country 3 as the first game I ever played. Then I remembered that I used to play point-and-click kids games on the computer like Pajama Sam and Putt Putt. :oops:

It wasn't until my parents got me and my brother an N64 and Super Mario 64 that I became really interested in games.

Probably Qbert on the atari or Jill of the Jungle on my grandmother's computer.

I vaguely remember a game where it's like Mortal Combat but you're a dinosaur and a gigantic ape and you rip each other's hearts out. It was an SNES game. That'd definitely be the first I played when I was a little kid.

There was also this weird game library on Windows and you could play as a comic book character.. holy shit I need to find that game.
Comix Zone.

The first game I remember playing was Rayman on my Dad's PC. Never did beat it, I should revisit it one of these days

Gex 64: Enter the Gecko. Played the hell out of that game back in the day. The series as a whole may have faded into obscurity, but it has a lot of nostalgic value for me.

Adventure, for the Atari 2600. Not sure if it was the first I played, but it’s the first I know I beat. That game definitely defined my personality as an adult gamer, funny how that works. I’ve got a boxed copy on my arcade cabinet to remind me of how it all began.

Brother, he figured it out in 26th July 2013. You're like 8 years late.

I don't remember my first game at all, but I really liked Little Fighter 2 as a kid.

I don't think there was any one game that got me into gaming, they had to have been several of them. Both 2D and 3D ones. I really liked Murder Death Kill 2 (MDK II) as a kid and Dark Forces 2.
