First Video Game Owned

Do you recall all the wasted hours on the games and consoles of the past? Everything from the first Playstation and the Nintendo 64 to the NES and the Dreamcast is fair "game" here.

Please forgive the lame pun.

First Video Game Owned

What was the very first video game you ever owned?

For me, it was Frogger on the Atari 400 system.

My parents purchased it from Sears in 1975:

PONG

I still have it and it still works! :D

I wasn't as lucky as Wade to have Pong as a kid, but my first game was Mario Bros. & Duck Hunt. I always wanted to shoot that damn dog for laughing at me :evil: :twisted:

Isn't it just amazing though...be it PONG or Duck Hunt; how a game with such a ridiculously simple concept could keep us busy for hours and days on end?

Owned? Not played?

Donkey Kong Country!!!!!


To this day, it's still my second favorite series of all time. Jak and Sly Cooper are up there in the ranks, but I'm sure anyone could guess my number one favorite, hehe.

Although not the first game per se, I do also remember, quite fondly, the first game I owned for the PS1, which was Bust-A-Move.

Even though there have been different incarnations and additions to this franchise, we found the original for the PS1 as highly addicting as Tetris and the original Mario Bros.

My first games were Spyhunter and Castle Wolfenstine for the Apple 2e.
Back in the early 80s. I thought I couldn't get much better. :)
