What was the First Arcade Game You Played?

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.

My very first games were Atari games. Dig Dug was my favorite, but there was also Asteroids, Missile Command, Space Invaders, Kaboom, etc.

But the first game that had a memorable impact on me was Life Force for NES.

It was brutal, graphically fascinating, and best of all, totally gross. I don't know why I'm flying a spaceship through a giant aggressive tumorous stomach, shooting lasers to clear a path through nondescript tissue masses before they close in around me, or why there's a giant floating brain monster trying to kill me, but that's beside the point. The game achieved this intriguing aesthetic of viscera-choked cybernetics that sent my five-year-old imagination spinning.

Oh yeah, and the music was awesome in a way that only 8-bit music can be.
