    What were your first games ever?

    Post by BlueMetal on Sun Oct 06, 2013 10:46 pm

    As the topic says, what games did you play when you first got into gaming?

    My very first few games were, Super Mario Bros/Duck Hunt NES combo cartridge, Tetris, and Mega Man 3. Started with Mario back when I was about 3-4 years old. :biggrin2: Here I am at age 21 and still a huge fan of Mario and Mega Man.

    I was introduced to gaming with the SNES, so my first game was Donkey Kong Country. I would later play various Super Mario games, but I was lame and never really played any RPGs like Final Fantasy or Chrono Trigger. I wouldn't get sucked into RPGs until I got a PS1 and played FFVIII.

    My first system was a Game Boy Advanced? And the first game that really sucked me into wide world of gaming was likely Pokemon Crystal. c:

    My first games were too NES games, I played a lot in Chip & Dale, Ninja Cats, Marios and all those cardrige games.
    Funny thing because I was cleaning attic lately and I find my old NES console, I don't know if it works or not since I don't have any cardrige, maybe I shouldn't trow it away yet.
    Next will be computer and my first game was Tomb rider and GTA XD, first game I brought was Might and Magic 7.
    My first JRPG was FF7 at that time, it was only Demo, I brought FF8 after that.

    Some version of Street Fighter 2, Final Fight, Robocop and Golden Axe (I don't remember which one) on master system, 1991/1992.

    My first JRPG was FF7 Jp, which I stopped playing because I knew nothing about Japanese at the time. Then Parasite Eve and then FF7 western.

    It suddenly occurs to me what a baby I really am in this fandom, oh dear LORD.

    I-I wasn't even born in 1991! Oh man, I'm just gonna go hide in my little tiny college-aged corner. ;A;

    I was introduced to gaming by friend of mine who had an NES. The first game I ever played was Super Mario Bros.

    Of course, I didn't get my first console until 1995, which was the Sega Genesis. The first two games I ever owned are Sonic the Hedgehog 3 and Sonic and Knuckles (both were bundled with the console). That's when (I guess I can call it a gaming career lol) started and I just took off from there. I stuck with the Genesis until I got a Dreamcast in 1998. Down the line, I get a Ps2, Nintendo DS, and now, a Ps3. I'm no where near done either. :biggrin2:

    My parents bought an SNES and Super Mario World when I was three years old, so around 1994, and I used to play that a lot with my little sister watching. :3 We also got Mario Paint and some golfing game that we played around on. I remember renting Yoshi's Island and Super Mario RPG a lot, and *I think* a Final Fantasy game (3/6 I guess?), though my memory is a bit fuzzy.

    This thread makes me feel ancient. ^^ I was 10 when I first started gaming. My father got an Atari from a thrift store. I think the very first thing I ever played was either Super Breakout, Adventure or Yar's Revenge.

    When I was 11, things REALLY ramped up because my dad got us an actual NES and I started playing Dragon Warrior and Fester's Quest.

    I think my folks had an Atari, but the first games I actually remember playing were the original Super Mario Bros and Legend of Zelda, when I was like ... 3 or 4 years old, maybe?  My parents used to play too (I particularly remember my mom's favorite games being Adventure for the Atari, and the aforementioned Zelda).  When I was a little older, some friends lent us their copy of the original Final Fantasy, and we all played it together as a family (everybody got to pick their character in the party; I was the White Mage).  I had never been so emotionally invested in a game before, and it had a huge influence on my poor impressionable little imagination.  So I kind of blame Final Fantasy for changing my life. owo

    This. My very first game ever was also the 2-in-1 Super Mario Bros/Duck Hunt NES cartridge.

    Now if you'd ask me which I played first;

    Super Mario Bros or Duck Hunt... that much I don't remember. ^~^;

    Haha, good stuff. I don't remember which one I picked first either, but I do know that it was my very first game. And I have the very same cartridge signed by the voice of Mario himself, Charles Martinet. :biggrin2: He was at my city's anime con last month.

    Can't really remember what had started it all, but I think I was introduced to things like Tetris (or "Brick Game" as the package insisted) and "Just you wait!" - both of them being some kind of Nintendo knock-off that looked something like a Gameboy that couldn't change the game(s) it was loaded with at the factory that we had here in ex-USSR - as hand-held 'toys' sometime around the age of 7.

    Neighbours' SNESes (or "Dendy") contributed games like Contra, Super Mario Bros, Chip&Dale, TMNT 2, 3 and 4 and a whole slew of others.

    Some SEGA MEGADRIVE II (no who-knows-out-of-nowhere names this time did not guarantee quality however) games like Sonic, Shining Force, Cannon Fodder and Mortal Kombat (once again played at various neighbouring flats) came a bit later.

    By the time I was 10 dad have managed to sneak me near his working station IBM PC (33 hz in turbo mode, FTW!) and show me Heretic, Hexen, Wolfenstein 3D, LHX and Wing Commander (and a wole slew of card games and 5-balls-in-a-line type of arcades) he and his collegues were playing when they had the chance.

    Some hurried Golden Axe II in the 'computer science' class we had on the side, some ogling a guy at a videogames' store counter playing what I (much) later recognized as PS2's FFX (it was the first airship boss fight too Very Happy) and other such sneak peeks had managed to last me until our family had a PC of their own.

    Some years later when internet access became cheap and stable enough I've discovered how much I along with the people I grew up with have missed out on. Such things as Zelda, Metroid, Final Fantasy, Earthbound, Chrono Trigger, Street Fighter, Super Robot Wars (and Xenogears/Xenosaga too, by the way) and many, many other wonderful games (and whole gaming systems) simply weren't there for us by the virtue of not getting on our stores' shelves for some reason or another.

    Makes me a sad panda when I almost beg my friends to ignore what they might've seen on the internet, throw out all prejudice about 'silly anime stuff' for a minute and try out, say, FFVII for themselves - only to fail miserably.

    Speaking of early video game experiences!  A few months back I was going through my family's home videos and found a lot of footage of us playing video games like this one from circa 1989 (I have no idea what it is and no actual memory of playing it outside of that video, so it was probably a rental or something).

    Another one I remembered recently (and was surprised, when I googled it, to find out it had actually existed and wasn't a hallucination induced by excessive sugar content in the breakfast cereals of the day):

    Baby Boomer.

    In which you shoot at obstacles in the path of an otherwise unattended baby as it crawls through such entertaining locales as "a graveyard" and "literally hell." I could make jokes about aggressive baby-proofing and/or parenting 'Murica style ... WITH A GUN but I think it speaks for itself, honestly.  Also, no wonder I never wanted kids. o_o;

    Edit: And while I'm combing through my nostalgia tags on tumblr, please enjoy this badass track from one of my favorite childhood games, Robo Warrior! (P.S., the VGJunk blog is one of my favorites for old and/or obscure game stuff. :3c )
