I can't be certain which one was first since I was so young, but I've narrowed it down to Bubble Bobble, Duck Hunter or Super Mario Bros

Pac-Man was my first arcade game and Food Fight on Atari was my first home console game. I do not recall Dunk Hunter, does it involve hunting fish?

Atari Pong, sometime in the 1970's.

Probably Pong... or maybe Pacman. It's been waaaaaay too long for me to remember exactly. :)

Double Dragon for the NES. Followed closely by Tetris for the NES.

Pong for sure, but Atari and Intellivision were both released around the same time as I tried Pong out, and we had both systems. As far as which game for those systems, dunno....maybe football or something.

Pong. I was a little tyke. Probably my oldest memory, i recall not just that but lots of details of that particular Xmas eve....so i was impacted somehow. Weird, because i faintly remember things were i was older than that. Had to have been ~''81, since i was born the year it came out.

When Colecovision came out, it was the greatest thing ever. I got a Colecovision and Time Pilot, which was at the time, the greatest game ever, lol.

Legend of Zelda 2: The Adventure of Link. I was terrible at it, but then again, I couldn't have been more than 3 at the time.

The first one that I owned and played was Wizards and Warriors on the NES.

I'm thinking either Asteroids or Space Invaders on the Atari. Or maybe it was pong. Remember the "football" game where all the block-figure lineman moved in sync? LOL...

I think it was Qbert. However, I do remember getting a Nintendo in the 90s and playing Mario with my dad as well as playing Wolfstein, doom and blake stone.

Frogger on the atari

FOGE says:
Not 100% but Im pretty sure it was Super Mario Bros. Its possible it was the Track and Field game that came with the mat.

The Drizzle says:
it has to be Super Mario Bros 1 or 3, duck hunt, or tetris. i never understood how to play tetris until about 10 years old or so, but i used to play with my mom when i was younger, just stacking blocks.

my brother had an NES, and he is 4 years older than me. i remember being Luigi all the time (which is why i always play as luigi in mario party, kart, SSB from time to time, etc).

my first console i remember getting was sega genesis, which both of us got together for xmas. the majority of the games we got were for both of us, but i remember the one game that was just for me was some NBA 1 on 1 game, and just beacuse of that, i played the heck out of it.

I believe the first game I ever played was Contra on the original Game Boy when I was a little kid. I was SO pumped to get that thing!

Anyone remember the old school game "One on One: Dr J vs Larry Bird"? Me and a buddy used to play that all the time, I was always Dr J and he was always Larry Bird. We used to play it on his C64, and we thought that game was the ish back then. Good times...
