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.

Hah, some awesome stuff in here. My digital virginity was tainted with the Sega Master System, and the included Safari Hunter game (plus the ever exciting hidden maze game!) Shinobi was the first game I owned that wasn't included with the system. Damn you Mandara!
I embrace my desire to
feel the rhythm, to feel connected
enough to step aside and weep like a widow
to feel inspired, to fathom the power,
to witness the beauty, to bathe in the fountain,
to swing on the spiral, to swing on the spiral,
to swing on the spiral of our divinity and still be a human.

Pitfall! for Atari 2600 in 1982. I was a toddler and hooked already.

The 1st video game that i remember fondly was fire ant on the Commodore 16+4. An awesome game and i can still remember the sound fx and the buzz i got from completing it. The 1st consol game i think i owned would have been Alex the kid on the sega master system and since this time i have despised all water based/swimming levels :(

Atari 2600. Barnstorming by Activision. I got to pick one game when we bought the system and that caught my eye. I played it endlessly.

Mario Bros/Duck Hunt. My NES finally conked out on me about three years ago. Still sad about it.
