Then I started getting more serious games. First, I got Search & Rescue 4, a rescue helicopter simulator that I really liked and a sailing one.

I played this all the time in primary school. If I remember the computer labs used to have it installed. That was about 93/94.

But before that I used to play games on either my SEGA console or my Gameboy.
My favorite game by far back in the day, which I played most often was Sonic the Hedgehog.
I remember me and my bro also played some sort of WWF game together (one with Shaun Michaels, Bret Hart, Owen Hart (who was later killed when a stunt went wrong at one of the wrestling events. I remember watching it happen), Yokozuma, Undertaker, Vader, Goldust, some clown dude etc). Good times

I remember proclaiming that Driver was the best game ever made.
I never even got to own it until the late years of the PS1.

I know we had a Sega and that I played Sonic, but I can honestly not remembering me playing it, which probably means it was too long ago and I was too young.
I can remember playing the SNES, my favorite games there were Biker Mice from Mars, Tiny Toons Wacky Sports, Battletoads, TMNT: Turtles in Time and Street Racer/Rock'n'Roll Racing.
But at the same time I was already playing PC games as well, Carmageddon 2, GTA 2, Urban Chaos, Messiah, Rollercoaster Tycoon, Baldur's Gate, Fallout.
I'd have to say Carmageddon 2 though, my friends came over to play it when I was younger (they weren't allowed to/didn't have a good enough PC for it/didn't know how to download stuff) and we just laughed out loud at the screen of the random sh*t that happened.

Microsoft 3D Movie Maker, I made some films with that which would be considered "so bad they're good" by today, like this thing I made when I was 8.
Oh my god, this movie is terrible looking back.

The first game I ever played was Super Mario All-Stars for the SNES, so that. I also recall playing a Thomas The Tank Engine game for the SNES, did anyone else ever play that?

Simcity 2000, 3000, and 4 were all PC games I loved during my childhood.

Oh, and this too.

Eye of the Beholder on Amiga (I still have the big pile of maps I had to draw as I traipsed through the dungeons. No automaps those days!)

I've probably been raised badly because my childhood games (when I was 4-10) were games like
- Quake I and II
- Doom (both Quake and Doom on a Windows 95 computer...)
- GTA III/San Andreas
- Serious Sam: The First/Second Encounter
However, I did have some kid games too. Mostly on PS2.
- Sly Cooper-franchise
- Ratchet and Clank (demo on Sly 2)
- Gran Turismo 3?
Quake was awesome. I'll always remember the sound effects from that game. But my first ever stand-alone disc game I played Multiplayer in was Serious Sam... it was one great way to learn English Internet slang when being 6-8, lol. Fun fact is, I typed good enough English to pass as a person aged 13+... pretty good for a person who isn't native English and was around 7, eh?
Anyway, my all-time favorite "child" games are Sly 2 and 3. I wouldn't really be ashamed to play them even still, but sadly my PS2 has gone to technology heaven.
