Abuse, on PC (Windows 95). Lots of Blood & Gore, and I was only 6! Man, I loved it... played it constantly... would do anything to fire that laser-rifle once more.

It was either Wolfenstein 3D where I would keep playing until I got motion sickness or Street Fighter II where I would keep playing until I got blisters on my thumbs.

I don't know if it counts, but since I was a baby, my older brother had amiga with full plenty of games. Ocasionally I played on it since I was able to.

Then was an pegasus era (I still don't know, what clone it was), but it was pretty short, and ended when first PC arrived to my home. I think the first computer video game which I played many hours and still remember (and still play from time to time) was Doom 2.

That's my short story :p

We had one of the original PONG consoles. It had 2 dials and 2 switches to toggle between tennis and pong (although it was really the same game).

Not too long after that though my parents gave me an Intellivision gaming console. Sigh. It was one of the best presents I ever received.

Solaris on the Atari 2600. At 8 years old it was literally outerspace.

First console game played: Beserk for Atari 2600 (first corridor shooter ever made)

First handheld game played: Wrestlemania Tiger games handheld (really early 90's or late 80's)

First arcade game ever played: either Galaga, Ghosts n Goblins, or Rolling Thunder (around 1984 I believe)

First PC game ever played: Blakestone (early 90's)

First owned console game played: Warhawk for PSX (wasn't allowed to own a console until I was like 15)

First owned handheld game played: Bugs Bunny Crazy Castle for Gameboy (the original pea-green screen white brick) (early 90's)

First owned PC game played: Sub-Space ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SubSpace_%28video_game%29 ) What a fun game this one was, wonder if the Euro servers are still up for this game? (1998 when I owned my first PC)

I will always remember Dragon's Lair in the arcade... Don't think it was my first, but a favorite from childhood.

Ironically when i first played Space invaders on an Atari back in the late 80s I actually hated it. Then a few years later I got hooked on to the original Prince on the PC and never looked back since then.

Hero's quest (later became Quest for Glory) , Intel 286 :)
Man that game was tricky.
You had to enter commands to the guy on the screen by typing. Like:
"take wallet"
haha

bru my mom used to spend her life playing Gold runner and Mappy (the original nintendo)

I used to spend my life (after the [police, space, heroes] Quest series) playing Baldurs Gate, Dungeon Keeper and Halflife against my brothers.
