For all you gamers out there: What was the first video game you remember playing?

the first game i remember playing was super mario bros 3 for NES. my dad had bought one and brought it home and bundled with it was smb3. we used to sit up all night playing it. that is the game that got me into video games.

    great game on a classic platform. God that joystick sucked but with one button and 8 different directions to move it in, we didn't care.

    I remember the first game i ever played was probably Super Smash Brothers for the Nintendo 64. I had endless fun when playing that game with my friends when I was younger.

    I remember the first game I ever played was Super Mario World for the SNES that my dad had bought while he was in college, but had never really played it. The games that got me into gaming were Pokémon Red, Gold, Silver, and Crystal. I got really into the nest installment of Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald, but havent gone any farther with the series.

    First game on the computer was a Mickey Mouse game (3 years old), then came the playstation 1 with Duke Nukem(5 years old). For the game boy it was Tetris (5 years old). Other than that, I can't really think of anything else.

    this is not an indication of age. i just never played a video game until i was a teenager.

    when i was a kid i found it more fun to fling down a steep hill (since i grew up in the city, it was usually a steep driveway) in my radioflyer wagon at breakneck speed without a helmet or breaks instead of sitting infront of a screen all day. (how did we stop? we turned it sharply and hit into something and rolled on the ground. and did it again. safe.)

    the handle is your steering wheel while you sit inside.
    please dont tell me im the only one here who did this!

    i did this until i learned how to properly ride a bike anyways...

    also, i never grew up with much money either, so we didnt have cable tv or anything either. it was a blessing now that i realise how kids with all that stuff typically turned out.

    Oh I remember my first game quite well, it was a copy of Pokemon Red version. I puchased it in 1999 and I didnt even have a gameboy. What ended up happening was (this was when I was seven) I went to my friend Max's house where he had an original gameboy. I managed to play the game for the whole of 15 minutes before the gameboy ended up dying. From the moment I turned the game on I was hooked. I had no idea what any of the monsters were and I didnt care. I actually begged and pleaded with my dad for almost a week before he finally caved and bought me my first console, the game boy color. Since then I have been hopelessly addicted to the immersive worlds of video games.

    I started out playing Secret of Mana with my bro and Secret of Evermore. Of course I also played other SNES games like Super Mario RPG and Mickey's Magical Quest. Good times, good times :D
