Just like your first time getting laid, you always remember your first one.

Choplifter on the Atari 2600 was that for me. My neighbor had it hooked up in their basement and I played every time I was over.

My father got NES for Christmas;

One game - Super Mario Bros./Duck Hunt. If I remember correctly he bought the first Zelda a month or two later for my second game. Before that I never knew of what a "video game" was, I had never heard of the word and I had no concept of it.

I always say it's Centipede. I remember getting an Atari 2600 (the Junior version) with a bunch of games for my birthday, choosing Centipede to play first and my parents reacting because they remembered the arcade version well - it had been a particular favourite of my Mother.

Truth be told, I've got a feeling I'd played games before then but can't remember anything specific.

When I was four or five, my uncle had his birthday party at this restaurant that had a Moon Patrol cocktail cab, and I spent all evening begging my relatives for change.

That uncle was god-tier in general: the old bastard even chipped in for an Atari 2600 on my next birthday. Strange, then, that I never owned a home version of Moon Patrol…

I genuinely don't remember. No blur nothing.
I wake up one day finally becoming conscious of my thoughts and actions and I look at my NES and Genesis. (No SNES)
and I notice a bunch of cover ripped cartridges with whitened out pictures like somebody dropped water on them. (It was Gunstar Heroes and Sonic the Hedgehog 2). I also had two, well not cartridges anymore, two NES chips with 9999/100 in 1 games.
I think it might have been Contra, Super Mario, Duck Hunt, Olympics games, Pacman, Wild Gunman, Soccer, Excitebike, Donkey Kong 3, (the shitty one where you bug spray donkey kong)

The cartridges were dirty and shit like they were used before, but I played those games like I played them for the first time.

Tetris when my cousin let me try it on his Gameboy.

My first console (that I got) was the GBC and pretty much all I had on that was Pokemon for a while. Complaints: zero.
I don't remember at all when I got my N64 but I remember my dad buying my SNES - from a nice man at a car boot sale. Came with Starfox, Super Mario, the tennis game and some other bits I don't remember.

Wolfenstein 3D: The Second Encounter on Mac. It's different than the version for Windows, but I didn't know that until years later.

There's a rocket launcher and a flamethrower, and apparently the levels are ripped from the SNES port. Some of the bosses are changed too.

Speaking of Wolf 3D, what's the best way to play it on modern systems? DOSBox or is there a better way?

I was pretty deprived of most video games till the mid 00s. Such is growing up in lower middle class. sometimes I pretend I got to play games when they came out to make myself feel better for missing out on so many games. I'd go to a friends house and want nothing more but to play all their games and drool over them getting an N64 AND a PS1.

I was lucky to have a PC in my room as a kid though, so I played a lot of PC games

One of these had to be the first game I played

It was Doom or SimCity 2000. I never liked playing outside. I spend hours in front of that old girl. It's odd when I think about it. I'm still the same as that kid. Sitting in the same spot. My desk is newer along with my chair ( none of them are ever as good as my first) and a new PC, but some things never change.

For real?

Growing up, even the families I knew who were pretty pov had at least a NES towards the end of the SNES' life, or a SNES towards the end of the N64's life, etc.

And then it seemed pretty much every one just wound up with a PS2, regardless of their economic situation.

Yes for real. Maybe it was more that they didn't want to buy me so many videos games. I had a Gameboy color when I was 6. It fell behind my radiator and melted. I didn't throw it away as far as I remember. I mostly played handhelds I'd get for Christmas or PC games that were real copies or bootlegs my mom got from somebody at work.

I'll post some of what I dug up. I found a stack of CDs that seem blank too. Can't find my Slave Zero. Maybe it was thrown away.

I remember my older sister's BF at the time gave me Lego racers (this was later on in life when I had N64) because he thought it was lame and stupid. I was happy.

Then he came over once and I was playing and kicking ass and he got interested, so I taught him how to play, and he seemed to be having fun with it "You're not gonna take it back are you?"

"Uh….nah"

He took it back with him.

Slalom. My uncle had rented an NES, and all the games they had, and brought it over to our house. I wanted to play Super Mario Bros. because just look at that fucking cover. That shit looks awesome as shit. What Nintendo of Murrica were thinking when they just slapped the Mario sprite on the cover I have no idea. Anyway, my uncle thought SMB was too hard (filthy casual), so we played Slalom for a while. Then I finally got SMB, and that's what really got me hooked.

Probably had something to do with the Murrican video game crash, and from that the general mentality that games never live up to their covers. They were honest about what you were getting, even if they did look like shit.

Graphically representative, maybe, but in terms of gameplay it's an odd choice: it looks like Mario's just about to ineffectively bump into a block, and his fireball has somehow embedded itself into the masonry.

If you hadn't played it, maybe you might think he was about to liberate a powerup, but look closer.

Bottom left.

That's lava.

Mario is about to eat shit after missing a crucial jump.

OK, so it is actually representative of my playing style, at least.

You lucky beggar of Baghdad

How did you take it, as your first game? Did you get totally wrapped up in it?

I know when I rented it (for the SNES) as a child, I found it slow and cumbersome. Years later, I really grew to like it and it's probably one of my fave GCCX sagas. But it definitely took me a while to come around.

I love the story of how I got this game.

I think I traded some kid either Donald Duck Goin Quackers for the GBC or Buzz Lightyear for this game with the intention of giving each other their game back. We never did and I still have Fall of the Footclan.

This was 2001-02 and I was in second grade

It was the other way around. Back then he sometimes took interest in whatever I was playing at the moment and went hard on it.

The only other game he started playing because of me that I can remember is Might & Magic VIII. I was more of a VI and VII fan but he liked the then-latest one in the series better for some reason.

Later on he picked up IX with the usual levels of autism and was trying to convince me to give it a go from time to time. But I had the benefit of watching him play it for some time already.

Nothing really fantastic, but it was pretty cool at the time, since there wasn't anything else anyway. It didn't interest me as much as playing outside though.

Shit yeah, Aztec.

You venture into some ancient Aztec tombs. Gotta get something like 8 screens down, get the mysterious idol and get back up. Randomized levels, enemies and traps, destructible terrain and some seriously wonky mechanics that make the game even better.

It did most of its collision detection by graphics, meaning you could jump and climb on trash, explosions, try to jump down and end up walking on the little HUD graphics and just about anything visible. And I think there was some way to bonk your head against a wall to fall through a level as well.

Enemies sometimes floated and phased through walls, and I think it didn't check enemy collision at all when they were off-screen, so they could end up on little platforms with no way off. Sometimes you get a monster or something blocking important stairs, so you could go away and hope they swooce through walls outta there.

Even if you horribly fucked up and blew up a set of stairs, sometimes you can still ride a flooding trap room upward or climb on boxes or something.

Also, anybody notice that the 1st and 2nd eras/generations of video games(and the very start of the 3rd) took place at the same time when animation in the Western world was going through a dark age? Quite interesting to know. No, I'm not making that part up.

The Dark Age of Western animation:1962-1983 While video games were just budding out into the public market via the original Magnavox Odyssey, the subsequent Odyssey 100's and 1000's series, Atari Pong, Atari Stunt Cycle, and the Fairchild Channel F, animation in the west for the most part, was faltering and becoming widely perceived as being meant primarily for children. This "animation is for kids only" mentality wrecked the most havoc through the late 1960s and most of the 1970s mostly via TV becoming a viable outlet, many idiotic bitchy parent's groups, and studios such as Warner Bros. cutting back on animation(the latter happening early in the 60s with WB shutting down their animation department). Disney animation also faltered during this time, especially in the 1970s, though they did manage a hit or two from time to time.

And for a short time, it switched around. When western animation was starting to recover its relavancy and general recognition as a worthwhile endevour circa 1979-start of the 1980s, the video game crash of 1983-1984(which might have lasted into early 1985) occurred, and now it was video games(particularly home console and arcade games) that were losing relevance, especially in the Americas, though the European and Aussie/NZ markets did get hurt as well. It wasn't until the days of the NES, SMS, and Atari 7800 that video games and animation were both more or less on good footing. Odd isn't it?

Super Mario World. I only remember because I didn't really care to play it.

Just watching my family play it was great at the time; far more interesting than any television. SMRPG was always more fun to watch, but too much to figure out for such a young kid (3 or 4 years old?) or something.

They didn't feel like playing one day and told me to play myself. It wasn't very fun that time, but pretty cool later. Especially two player, watching one another complete worlds and communicating who would do what in what order.

My first favorite game was SimCity 2000, on my grandpa's Win95 computer. One of like 300 games installed on it beforehand, mostly from XXX in 1 shovelware disks.

The first game I actually owned was Zelda Oracle of Ages. A neighbor actually left his GBC at my house, me and my siblings played it quite a bit without his permission or anything. Returned it with a feeling of guilt. Then suddenly for my birthday he just gave it to me. Rich kid didn't really care for his possessions at all apparently.

Actually owning a game that could be played without a TV or computer, or even being plugged into the wall, was such an amazing feeling. "This is all I need? No interrupting other people, no being stuck in one place? Wow."

Probably Super Mario Bros. on the NES. Regardless of the game, the NES was definitely my first console. I soon became more of a PCfag, though, and some of my earliest vidya game memories are of watching my brother playing DOS games.

The NES is still my favorite console to this day.

And to this day I remain terrible at all 2D Mario games.

>first video game

It was on a really old console impossible to remember. before 1988, maybe ZX, but definately before c64 or amiga. It had flames below and you had to walk up descending escalators dodging devils that dropped you to the flaming pit below if you touched them. Really good game, but on later stages, it got really hard. It had basic bleep music, that was just a 5sec loop of some classic track.

Funny thing is that it could be a mid tier phone game today. We have fallen so low.

Super Mario Bros. on a chinese counterfit console that had 9999999 in 1 cartridge that repeated games after 30 or so.

Controllers looked like sega genesis ones

MAME is just bullshit project that keeps needing more and more botnet computer to run 80's game that ran fine on an 8-bit Z80 processor. MESS is also just as bad. They're just fucking insane people running those projects. They don't care how well games play on average person's computer, just how "accurate" it is on their $5000 botnet gaming rigs.

Anyway, I played the arcade Ghouls 'n Ghosts in 1989-90, but shortly after bought the Sega Genesis and that game for it, so I could finish it without spending $100 in quarters. The game plays just fine on that console. In fact, Sega has really fantastic arcade ports for the most part. Even the PC Engine had amazing arcade conversions. And emualator for the 16-bit systems run fine on any old potato toaster, unlike the MAME disaster.

Agreed. It puzzles me as well when people ask which is the best console version to play, when there exists and arcade version. The SNES Ghouls 'n Ghosts is very much it's own game though with new enemies, new levels, new armor, new mechanics and so on. While I much prefer the arcade version, the SNES game is worth playing too, if you can stomach the occasional slowdown.

The Sega version plays find but it has shit tier graphics and I wonder what kind of toaster you have that you can't run 2D games on MAME.

The Sega Genesis graphics are actually fucking good compared to other ports. I couldn't even tell the difference back in 1990. Well it's not like I played it side-by-side with the arcade machine, but it was close enough that I was fucking impressed and spent a week playing until I beat it. Anyway we didn't have screenshots and videos to compare every minor detail. If the game played good, sounded good, and looked good, it was a good game, and this one fit the bill on all accounts.

I'm not comparing it to other ports. It's 2019, MAME is a thing, I'm comparing it to the arcade version.

>Anyway we didn't have screenshots and videos to compare

Video game magazines had screenshots and there also sometimes were promotional VHS tapes with gameplay footage as well as TV commercials.

>If the game played good, sounded good, and looked good, it was a good game

Sure, back then but not today. I played SF2 on SNES till I had blisters on my thumbs but that doesn't change the fact that it's a shit version compared to the arcade original. I've got nostalgia for the game, but not the shittiness of the version I was forced to play back then.

If you prefer inferior versions nowadays just because you grew up with then, you're taking nostalgia too far. The kid you from back then would smack you in the head for choosing the inferior version to the superior one now available to you.

Kek, you're assuming everyone subscribed to video game magazines or something. No, I rarely ever saw these in the 80's. One guy I knew had a Nintendo Power stash, but that's about it, and I only leafed through those once at his house. The idea that everyone had as easy access to information back then as today is laughable, and really makes me question if the people pushing this line were even alive at the time. So you played some games at the arcade or someone's house, and you saw some things at the store.

Anyway just look at this shit you write man, look how fucking full of yourself you are:

> If you prefer inferior versions nowadays just because you grew up with then, you're taking nostalgia too far.

WTF does that even mean? I'd play the MAME version if it wasn't such an unoptimized piece of shit that needs a fucking iBotnet computer to run at above single digit frames per second. But no, I have other priorities, and I don't give a fuck about MAME anymore (or MESS since they fucked it up too). They fuck up everything they touch! To them, *that* is the game, to see how shitty and slow they can make their code, and they outdo themselves every fucking new release, just like Microsoft, Linux, etc. So you can keep sucking their dicks, but I'm done with their stupid shit. If someone else makes a non-shitty arcade emulator, maybe I'll use it, but for now I'm happy with the Sega Genesis.

Also why the fuck are you even in /vr/ if you like modern shit so much? Old crap is bad, and everything new is superior. <- that's what you say, so just go to /v/ and play those "great" graphics games that are so fucking awesome

I played it on the NES when I was a wee lad, that game transported me to a world I had never been to before and I never wanted to leave.

I don't remember whether it was Pokemon Blue or Mario Party 2. All I know is that I spent most of my younger childhood playing sports games, Pokemon and the occasional movie licensed game. I didn't really start branching out unti I was a teenager. I regret my lack of taste as a child.
