Your first video game experience
Posted 21 November 2012 - 06:38 AM
My grandmother bought an NES and was obsessed with it.
The only games she owned for the first few years were Legend of Zelda, Mario, and Battle of Olumpus. I played those three games nonstop.
The collection eventually grew to adventures of link and the next 2 Mario games.
For my 4th birthday I got a sega genesis with sonic the hedgehog.
I was fairly poor growing up so I would always save my gifts for the next time a new sonic was released. I've been gaming ever since.
How bout you guys?

I don't remember what my first game was. I was given my sister's Commodore 64 when I was something like 7 or 8 years old. I have a feeling it was Batman: The Caped Crusader.

Me too. They had one at Manchester Airport - along with banks of coin operated TVs that were attached to seats. I remember the way it fizzed and hummed and the paddle had a little screenburn contrail in its wake. Awesome - felt like you were part of the space programme.
Second was Boot Hill - It wasn't that much different to pong in terms of gameplay, both players were at the side and could only move up and down. The difference was you had to dodge instead of hit.

We had a SEGA, I can remember that and we played Sonic on it and Postboy (or whatever that game is called), but I must've played video games before that, I just can't remember

I also have ealry memories playing Super Mario Land on the first-gen Gameboy and Super Mario Land: 6 Golden Coins. Loved that game. I had the magnifier adapter, light and speaker adapter from my GB. Brilliant.
Didn't really become a 'hardcore' gamer until Vice City/San Andreas.

Anyways, apparently afterwards I remember seeing a "gaming" channel button on one of our tv's and I remember saying something about how I want to use it. Well, after moving to a new city we had our first christmas there, my parents got my sisters and I an xbox and Airforce Delta Storm, Shrek, and I think Cel Damage.
I played a little bit of Airforce, my dad was the one who played that all the time. He even beat it. My sisters and I would pretty much only kick a chicken in a corner of the map on Shrek, it would create a bunch of fathers, hilarious!
Now Cel Damage, that is an amazing game, I still play it to this day. It's just good old fun. My sisters and I loved that sh*t!

It brings back many memories and it is one of the main reasons why I took up piano since some of the soundtrack consisted of Beethoven in the sequel.
I also remember playing Flight Simulator 95 which I loved despite the fact that I didn't have a joystick and everytime I tried to turn with the arrow keys it just ended in disaster.
After that I played GTA 2 at a friends house and one thing lead to another and before you know I'm a GTA addict.

It was weird when pong and then brakeout invaded the arcades. Everyone was lined up at their pinball machines and almost no one played the weird video game tucked away in a dark corner.
f*ckin A...Space Invaders blew my mind when it came out though.
