First PC game was probably Arcade 95 or something like that, it had a tonne of demos (or full versions I forget) from a bunch of different games. My favourite was actually similar to warcraft, and to tell you the truth, if they kept making them I'd play them more than I'd play warcraft >_<
But before I even touched the PC, it was SNES all the way. Now, the game... I forget lol
Most likely Mario Paint, or normal Mario.
Figured someone would mention good ol Commander Keen.
Sad i remember this, but first game was when i was 3. It was on some old computer stored in my attic (only had an A drive, and ran in DOS), and it was some kind of cheesy Sesame Street game where you get the water to flow from one end to the other with Big Bird and pals.
First console game I played was Megaman 2, which was the one Megaman to RULE THEM ALL!
First strategy game was Warcraft: Orcs and Humans. I wish I could find my disc for that game, I wanna play it so bad again (warlocks IMBA with purple cloud)!
The first actual video game (meaning, not things like jump start 1rst grade, ect) I ever played was either the lion king (It was actually pretty fun, and embarrisingly still is) or (I think) donkey kong country (the original, but I got 1,2 , and 3) Overl all I had 5 games for the super nintendo: In order: Donkey Kong country/Lion king, Donkey Kong country/super Mario world, Donkey kong country 3. The /'s mean Im not sure which came first.
believe it or not, i've been addicted to computer games SINCE I WAS 4 (maybe 5) YEARS OLD.
my nursery school was soo far from our house, i hung out a lot on my parents' office. they only had DOS then. and i quickly learned to use simple commands (searching directories, opening/playing games).
the first games i ever played were:
Prince of Persia
some platform game called GODS
some fighting game called CC (?) with only 2 characters to choose from.
some billiards game
some top-down shooting game with planes
and oh yeah, SUPAPLEX!
and... Prehistoric 2
Well, my first computer game was something stupid. I don't remember the name but it was something for small children containing board games (these who take no skill: just use your dice) and memory and such things.
