    Here post some of the first games you ever played or fairly old games that stick in your mind.

    Some of my first games where the whole Sonic series on the Sega Megadrive, good times.

    A game that sticks in my mind would be Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped on the PS1 (big old classic version), I paticularly remember this as when I played this I was at the age where staying up all night was considered crazy. My cousin slept over one night and we stayed up and played it from start to finish, from what I remember I think we finished about half seven in the morning lol! Oh the memories...

    Ah I completely forgot! Also post your first Handhelds lol! Yes I remember playin Pokemon Blue and yeah Warioland 2 & 3 I had. Ah Pokemon, In my old Gameboy Advance case I have Blue, Red, Yellow, Gold & Crystal, I was mad about those. A DS lite is in the post somewhere, when it finally arrives I may consider getting one of the new ones, it was so much better with the 151 Pokemon though, or whatever it was.

    Oh YEAH! Croc I totally forgot that existed! That was great yeah lol!

    I played on this machine my dad had when he was young. It was called a "Binotone TV Master MK6." It is an orange machine with only built in games and they are black and white, proper original pong and like 5 other games like that. I think it's quite funny as it says in the box "You can afford Tomorrows World Today," it must've been seen as so "space age" for it's time. Oh and the contollres are square with one twister dial and the ports are "Left Player" and "Right Player."
    PS. Soz for double post.

    my first system was teh nes, well it was my big sis's till i sorta took it over :smilewinkgrin: my memories on that system include super mario bros. duck hunt, and DR. MARIO. I would play that game all night trying to get to higher levels. There was also this athletics game with a pad like ddr's ancestor till the pad broke.

    my dad bought me an snes soon after. mario paint, there was a crazy fly swatting mini game, and super mario world occupied my time

    My first game was Sonic the Hedgehog for the Mega Drive, which I got when I was about 6. I was a big fan of the series back then, the music, level design, graphics and gameplay were all superb. The combined Sonic 3 and Knuckles was the best, I remember spending ages completing the game with every character.

    The best Mega Drive game I played was Zombies Ate My Neighbours (which was just called Zombies in this country). I would spend many hours in my room playing that game.

    Also, although it's not particularly old I should mention Final Fantasy VII. The first time I played it it blew me away, I never realised video games could be so expansive and deep. Of course now I'm older I've found better RPGs (Tales of Symphonia, Final Fantasy VI, etc.) but my first experience of an RPG still sticks with me.

    The first game I played was Daley Thompson's Olympic Challenge on C64 that I got for christmas when I was 3 years old. And 1987 came System 3's The Last Ninja and then it's two sequels, all of which I still play through quite regularly. I'd say they're the games that turned me into a "hardcore" gamer. I mainly used the C64 to learn basic programming before I got the first Last Ninja.

    Then came NES with Mario, Zelda and Punch-Out etc.. And SNES had a huge amount of games that stuck in my memory forever, like Super Metroid, Chrono Trigger, Final Fantasy IV etc..

    I remember playing Frogger on my moms mini arcade, Super Mario 3, Earthworm Jim for Sega the most. My first handheld was indeed the Gb, then I got a Gb Color, I got out of handhelds for a while and bought a N64. Then the Xbox, then Gamecube, Sega Game Gear, Ds lite, Wii...Soon to get a PS3 or 360...I'm going to wait out so I can see what kind of games sony are developing.
