    If you all can remember, what was the first game that you were hooked on? I am a bit old and go all the way back to the Atari 2600. Space Invaders and Pac-Man.

    From what I can recall, it was Super Mario Bros. on the NES. I'm guessing it was SMP though to be honest, but it was definitely something on the NES.

    Such simpler times.

    My first game was Sonic the Hedgehog on the Mega Drive. Still a great game even today.

    Yeah, my first TRUE gaming experience was Sonic 2. After that I was hooked.

    For me it was Haunted House on the Atari 2600. I really loved that thing even though I was still young and couldn't quite understand what I was doing.

    Another game I remember playing alot was some game called "Hunt the Wumpus" for the TI-99/4A. If your interested in what I'm talking about you can google the game, there's plenty of flash versions of it out there.

    Thread revival?

    My gamings years only go back to the NES (which I don't even remember playing these days =/), my first game being Super Mario Bros., I remember that much. The first game I was addicted to, was Pokemon Red. Ah, the days back when pokemon was much more awesome... good times.

    ^Lol, it makes me think of a Weird Al song every time I hear commodore 64...
    "You're Commodore 64 is really neato. What kind of chip you got in there, a Dorito?


    My first game was either The Legend of Zelda on NES, or Monopoly on SNES. I can't remember, but I think it was Zelda... Used to play that with my grandad all the time.

    It's all about the Pentiums!

    Jesus, I don't even remember the first video game I played. The first system I owned was a SNES. I got it for Christmas nearly 2 decades ago, packaged with Super Mario World, and I got All-Stars shortly thereafter. Super Mario World was the first game I beat, I was 5 or 6 at the time. First handheld was the brick GameBoy with a copy of F-1 Race.

    The first system I owned was the Super Nintendo. The first games that really got to me were Donkey Kong Country: Diddy's Kong Quest or Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars. I can't help but somehow compare every game I play today to those two classics.
