First game you remember playing

Post by Serah »

It's either Rocket Knight Adventures for the Mega Drive or Alex Kidd in Miracle World for the Master System for me. Alex Kidd can be a lil' hard to go back to now, but it's very cute with heaps of personality. When I first went back to Rocket Knight Adventures about 8 years ago, though, I was shocked at how good it still was. Straight up probably my favourite action-platformer of all time, just totally none-stop with a ton of interesting scenarios. OST bangs, too.

What's yours?

mine was probably wii sports or wii sports resort (i got a wii for my 6th birthday and both of those came with it), or maybe some random flash games, i don't remember which came first haha

wii sports is a bit boring to me these days, but wii sports resort... holy shit that game is a masterpiece. there's so many different sports, each one has multiple modes, they all have so much depth, and the whole thing is presented as this gorgeous island resort, it's incredible

i have such fond memories of the exploration mode where you get to fly around the island in a dogfight airplane. my brothers and i loved flying around, exploring every part of the island... i remember when we saw that there was another island in the distance:

Image

and since we weren't accustomed to the way most games are built, we didn't think it was just part of the background, and we tried flying to it. but the best part is, we were right!! it WAS a real place and it had landmarks and everything, that discovery is one of my fondest video game experiences

something else i remember fondly is this mysterious doorway:

Image

we found it in a cave, and we just HAD to know what was in there. we kept trying to fly in there, angle the plane's wings just right so we could fit, but obviously there was an invisible wall over the entire door and it was no good haha. to this day i don't know what the purpose of that door is or what was behind it. it's probably used for a different sport somehow. if somebody knows please let me know lmao this would be life-changing

and one last thing - i adore the game's main theme! it's an absolute joy to listen to and it brings back so many sweet childhood memories :D gosh i should make a shrine for this game on my website lmao

thanks for coming to my ted talk

Not sure if it is my first game, but it is the earliest one I have any memories of. It being Plants vs Zombies, I remember it was the version that had the Thriller Zombie. (The one before Game of the Year Edition.)

Another game I remember playing very early in my life was the Christian Whitehead remake of Sonic 2 on mobile. but I know that one isn't before PvZ. Surprised at how they hold up despite having played them way too long ago.

For us, it was the Pokemon Trading Card Game on Gameboy Color, though we played on an original Gameboy. That game's OST is still something we'll listen to sometimes: it's really good.

We didn't get into the Pokemon base games until we were about 5 years old, which was about when Ruby and Sapphire came out in the West, as Ruby was our first base game.

for me it's chicken invaders, which is basically like space invaders, but actually fun...
instead of aliens you shoot chicken but you also get weapon upgrades in the form of presents and there's a boss you need to fight after every 10 levels



btw, the first game I saw was probably doom 1&2 which my father absolutely loved playing 8)

I think my first was some educational game on a school computer wayyy back when I was a baby living in Brazil. First "real" game was probably something on the DS, though.

I remember I was three years old when I started playing Age of Mythology on my aunt’s computer. I still think it’s one of the best games out there.

First computer game I can recall playing, that I can still identify, is probably Myst, the very original. Would have been like 1994? I think.

I did not get very far. XD

First computer game that I really got into, though, would be The Journeyman Project!



I still love the soundtrack to this game, it's awesome. :D


Even before those, though, I guess my first game was the original Super Mario Bros. for the NES!

Do it! You're obviously super passionate about it :) I really loved Wii Sports Resort, too. The sword fighting game finally gave me the experience I was most excited for when the Wii was first announced. The game holds up beautifully, too, SO much prettier than the Wii U one!

Gosh, what a blast from the past. Definitely a game that deserves to be talked about more than it is but I feel like vintage computer games tend to be forgotten more in online discussion than video games do for whatever reason. It's wild having grown up in a country where the NES didn't do so hot, all my older sibling's and family members memories of gaming in the 80s involve the ZX Spectrum and C64. I remember my Dad showing me the text adventure he tried writing on the Speccy.

I’m not too sure on this one, but it was probably Sega related.
The first video game I owned that I picked out was Digimon Rumble Arena 2 all brand new, but some earlier ones I remember playing were Sonic and Sega all stars tennis and Ecco the dolphin.

I grew up with the Sega Mega Drive! Some other early titles include Alex Kidd , Dr Robotnic’s mean bean machine and Fatal labyrinth. I have yet to complete DR’MBM, Ecco, Ristar, Dynamite Headdy and heaps of other games from that period, they REALLY made them to last you, in that regard.

Fatal labyrinth was a fun one- think Pokémon Mystery Dungeon, but more agonising.

Alex Kidd was a struggle. A cute struggle, but a struggle. Everyone who has played this game and somehow gotten past level 3 knows my pain. Or anyone has played it, at all.

The earliest back in my memory, I can recall playing Sonic, so I’ll just go with that.

I think my earliest known memory of ANY game at all was GORILLA.BAS, that little gorilla game included as a BASIC program was DOS. I admit, I just made up random numbers when it came to actually playing it. (I do remember the smiling sun, though...)

As for my first "real" game? Well, it all started when we got a bunch of DOS shareware CDs (namely, the Aztech Home Entertainment series). The two I think I remember the earliest? Raptor: Call of the Shadows and Wolfenstein 3D. Regardless, I recall sitting with my father, playing together...

My first console game? Super Mario All-Stars on the SNES. Specifically, Super Mario Bros 3.

yikes... i had to look this up and it's as terrifying as i remembered it being.

my earliest memories tell me this was one of the first few games i played. i had to be 2 years old, sitting on my mom's lap while we used her windows ME pc. the Singing Sunflowers...



who thought this was a good idea for children?? look at those eyes!

on a lighter note, more later memories say i played a lot of barbie games as a child. my favorite was Barbie Princess and the Pauper for PC.

Is it wrong that I actually think they’re kind of cute in a strange, weird uncanny valley way?
I mean, sure, they’re somewhat terrifying and the sun looks like he’d munch on my bones in my sleep, but they look... welcoming? ...for the most part. Or the least part.

I may also be biased because I love Sunflowers. 🌻

They told me that there were words on the ceiling. There weren’t, and now I’m missing my lungs and one of my femurs.
There’s a chance these events are related...
But atleast the flowers in my garden are growing well!


Ahaha, but on topic, this isn’t the first strangely uncanny singing flower video game I’ve seen, for some reason. Maybe it was in vogue in the early 2000’s.

Uncanny singing flower video games are IN!

Ya know, in the early 00s, I wasn't really playing kid's games besides Sonic. I was mostly deep into RPGs and survival horror games but I think maybe if I was into more age-appropriate stuff I would have been more traumatised xD

The first game I remember playing was Pokemon Crystal on the GameBoy, which I no longer have. :(

But if you count games that you can play on the desktop, then it's got to be Arthur's Birthday by Living Books. :D

ohhhhh mine was definitely toontown online back in like, 2006-2007, right after I learned to read. My mom said I couldn't use a computer until I learned to read, and as soon as I could i demanded she allow me to make a funny cartoon creature:)

I'm thinking possibly that Smurfs game for the Atari, which was impossible for pre-school age hand-eye cordination, or maybe the NES port of Rampage... also impossible.

Super Mario Bros. on the original Nintendo. I was 3.5, vaguely aware of memory at this stage, watching my dad play, and he gets a game over, then hands me the controller and says that I can figure out how to play. So I did.

I don't think I ever got good enough to beat the game as a kid, but I could get to the last world... with warps.

On console my first game was probably Baldur's Gate Dark Alliance. I love that game so much, I was disappointed that the reboot is garbage. I recently tried playing the rerelease on PS4 and holy hell the game is way harder than I remember.
I THINK THIS IS THE GAME I'VE BEEN SEARCHING FOR THE LAST 6-8 YEARS! :O The only DOS/near-DOS game that remains unsolved from my childhood.

I don't remember the first game I played, but I do remember the first game I witnessed: Virtua Cop 2 for Windows. My father used to play it and I always asked him to see "the big guy who throws a truck at you" (I found that part hilarious as a toddler)

I salute all the Toontown players here, never heard of the game in my childhood but would have loved it. I played the Rewritten version for a good while.

If I remember correctly my very first game was Sonic Adventure in Dreamcast and my first PC game was a educational game called Coelho Sabido (aka Reader Rabbit and yes it is an official portuguese release). I am actually really glad that someone took the time to record the game, please enjoy (the recording itself is quite loud so be careful)

well, the one i played as a kid was the pre-steam port. it was good enough, i guess, seeing that i like sonic.
the steam port is actually a little worse than the old pc port from what i've heard, but there are many mods to make it way better, at least.

the steam port is actually a little worse than the old pc port from what i've heard, but there are many mods to make it way better, at least.

Mods are a blessing for that port, honestly!

The first games that I have memories of are Alex Kidd in Miracle World, Astro Warrior, and Quartet all for the Sega Master System.

I wasn't much a gamer, even as a kid though, so I tried to find other people to play them for me so I could watch as a kid.

humongous entertainment's putt-putt goes to the moon. my parents told me this was the first game i ever played when i was around 3 or 4 years old, and they also told me that i was extremely scared of the computer mouse at first, lmao. this would be the first of many, many, many PC games that i would play throughout my childhood and young adult life...

(btw most of the humongous point-and-clicks still hold up, even as an adult)

For me it's Super Mario Land on the Game Boy. I was atrocious at it and only really beat it years later due to a combination of poor motor control and lack of save states, but it's nostalgic anyways.
