I was just curious for those of you out there what was the first game you have ever played, and did you like it as the first game you played?
The first game I played was Pokemon Red (or blue cant remember) and at the time I though it was ground breaking.
So, what are your thoughts on the first game you played?
super mario bros on the original green screen gameboy, or it might have been columns on the old sega gamegear
but i remember mario bros taking over my life for a good month or 2, i used to get to the last boss with over 100 lives left but never managed to finish it. didn't play it for about 10/15 years, then my nephew had it on his gameboy colour (dug it oout from my brother in laws garage or something) i played through the entire game in about 20 mins and 1-shot the last boss.
man i was so crap at games, at least i got better though
having thought about it a bit more, there were amiga and commodore 64 games that i played before i ever touched a gameboy, but super mario was for sure my first real gaming passion.
Super Mario (the first one) on the NES when i got it for christmas in 87 or 88.. plus the duck shooting game that came with the console and that crappy red gun... I say crappy but at the time i thought it was the greatest thing ever invented.
I'm guessing it would have been seeing people play Mario Land on the gameboy - this further inspired my interest in video games in general, including the SNES then N64. I was quite young when I got into it.
