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.

The original TMNT game for NES. Come to realize 20 years later that game was almost impossible to beat. No seriously...Google it.:-(

Back in 1982 I got an Atari 2600 with the pack-in Combat game and Pitfall!. I've put many hours into Pitfall! over the years. I haven't checked in a while, but I was in the Top 10 in Pitfall! in Game Room for the Xbox 360.

Pretty close for me, but in my case it was Combat and Pacman.

Aside from the Mario / duck hunt combo, my first game was Tiger Heli. It was a port of an arcade game my dad loved (iirc). My second game was Dragon Warrior. It came with my subscription to Nintendo Power.

And you still decided to keep playing video games? j/k ;) Pacman on the 2600 sucked, but the port of Ms. Pac Man was sweet.

I played plenty of games in arcades around 1980-82. the 1st system I bought was an nes. I played lee Trevino fighting golf and tecmo bowl on a friends system and was hooked. the 1st game I bought was river city ransom. that game blew our minds. made even more fun as you could wack your coop partner with an inadvertent tire toss and end up fighting each other right in the middle of the story.
