    I believe it would be Sonic the Hedgehog 2, on my Sega Genesis. That, or Super Mario Land 2, on my GameBoy.

    I don't really remember.

    Either Mario (Gameboy), Tetris (Gameboy), or Aldo's Adventure for DOS.

    Jill of the Jungle was awesome I used to play that at my cousins house. Sometimes he would bust out Commander Keen 6 or Duke Nukem for the win.

    The earliest I can remember was called Pipemania on my friends' BBC Micro
    The first game of my own was Tom Thumb on the Commodore Plus 4, a C64 variant
    Then I had Sonic on my Master System in about 1993

    I played the original Wolfenstien on my uncle's state of the art laptop, nice and black and white :hmph: . Then i played doom on my dad's black and white laptop :eek:

    Pong (when I was just a toddler), then some text based adventure game on the zx spectrum (around 1986?) - then I was pretty much hooked on the entire Dizzy series for the spectrum (especially magicland :D), until I got my 486 sx25

    I'm not sure what my first PC game was, it was around 1992 so it can't have been great (I think it was the original Alone in the Dark). I know for sure that a game I played a lot back then was called Nightmare 3D. I then played Doom and got hooked on FPS's

    I've still got a box full (literally full, 200+ tapes) of spectrum games + software...

    Besides, I'd say punchcards are the earliest form of storage. 1-byte storage per card :D 'ownage'.

    Wasn't the spectrum the European name for the Timex/Sinclair? Er- I think the spectrum was a little better

    They were almost 100% compatable I think. I remember looking in magazines and everything was priced in pounds. I was like.. wtf is a pound? lol I was about 10 years old

    We had the Timex sinclair B&W and then later we had the one with the cartrige slot and color
    =================
    My first console game besides that was Adventure for the Atari 2600 with teh Simulated woodgrain finish :hmph:

    My first game had to be those T.V. tennis games, you had to have 2 people to play. It was basically you move your paddle up or down and bounce the ball back to the other player hoping he would miss. It was fun :upstare:

    EDIT: arcade was probably space invaders or galaxian

    Timex? Who are they.

    Sinclair made a lot of things (a company formed by Sir Clive Sinclair, the inventor that invented the things)

    The Spectrum was merely one invention. The Z80 was the first (small, rubber keyboard), the +2 was the later version that had the tape drive and nicer graphics. I had a +2 :D

    Anyway, back on topic:
