My mom refused to get us video games until she eventually caved Christmas 1998.  For Christmas my brother and I got an N64, so the first console game I ever played was Super Mario 64.  I still have it to this day--and the N64 is the only console I kept from my childhood, for nostalgia reasons.

A very solid first game indeed. Sadly I am still waiting to play this one.

My first title was probably something on the original Xbox. It might be Spongebob Squarepants: Battle for Bikini Bottom. Such a classic personally and still my favorite 3D platformer. And yes, I'm beyond excited for the remake coming soon. :cool:

That's a great game.  Had it on the Gamecube at one point. Running it on a gamecube emulator currently.

Still have my copy and my N64.  Thatís one of the best pick up and put down games since you can just play a couple levels, save your progress and go do something else.

StarFox 64 on the N64, followed immediately by Redline Racer on the old Windows 95

For first arcade game played, at first I was going to say Frogger summer of 1982, which is the first arcade game I paid to play, but then I remembered my older brothers taking me to the arcade in the local mall to play: Death Race, from 1976!  Glorious monochrome black-and-white.  Man, that game was controversial in its day.  I never had a chance to play it again until last year at the Southern Fried Gameroom Expo.

First console game, I don't really remember; I remember playing the Atari 2600 and the Intellivision at the local JC Penney's, but I think before that there was this pong variant that had this odd joystick that was this triangular knob atop a stick that also could be rotated left and right to make your pong paddle rotate.

For a console game, mine was probably the original Sonic the Hedgehog on the Sega Genesis (1991). The game is four years older than me, and it's still a lot of fun to play! The system was a hand-me-down from my older cousin. I also remember playing Golden Axe II co-op (also 1991). The Genesis is the only system from my childhood that got thrown away :-(.

For a PC game, it was probably Roller Coaster Tycoon (1999). I would play it until my eyes were sore, and I still didn't want to stop :-D.

When I was five, we bought a PSone and my favourite games were Spyro 2, CTR, NFS III, Spiderman and Rayman 2. I've bought some PS1 games more recently including Chrono Cross (I really enjoyed the battle system) and Final Fantasy IX (I loved the dialogue in this game).
