    Cosmos Cosmic Adventures and Duke Nukem (DOS) were a couple of my firsts on PC. Then I got an NES, and it was Super Mario Bros.

    Mine was chucky egg on the Amstrad. First game I got addicted to. Later it would be Jet Set Willy and Dailley Thomspons Olypmics but it all started with chucky egg.

    Anybody else have an early Amstrad? I remember having to plan hours in advance if you wanted to play because of the amount of time it would take for the games to load. Ah great days.

    I guess it was Pong on Atari 2600... one of the best game on that console was Frogger and later Hero.
    Later came ZX Spectrum-->C64--->Amiga 500--->PS1--->PC1-->PC2-->PC3-->PC4 (all PC's based on 80x86)

    First games I was addicted:
    Millenium 2.2, Future Wars, Fighter Bomber, Elite.

    Cool and great days...

    My first game was Paperboy on my SNES! I can still remember the audio from a perfectly delivered paper or the angry noise made when you broke a window. I love that game!

    I also played the likes of pong on an old TV plug in thingy in the 70's. Moved onto the space invaders and defender pub table games. First type of 'console' game would be Treasure Island Dizzy on the Atari ST.. happy days lol.

    OMG I'm oooooooold...

    ...Glad I seem not to be the only one around here :D

    First game ever was something like Pong, on a little white TV console that had like 8 different versions hardcoded (hardwired??) into it.

    Then the usual suspects, as new "high tech" became available for all those ataris, commodores and so on, but always at friends places, as my parents hated that stuff. (back then already, imagine :p )

    My first PC game was on my first self built machine, cost about the same as a decent compact car, I think a 486DX33 (yes, that's 33 MHz for the youngsters here :p ) with a whopping 4MB RAM and a *colour* Graphics Adapter with like 256KB dedicated RAM and a XGA *colour* monitor..."Bards Tale", anyone else remember that?
    You had to draw your own maps for the dungeons, and it took about a year to play it fully through lmao.

    Good old times :worthy:

    Well, a 486 DX was fast enough to play Doom, Doom 2, Need for Speed (original game), etc.

    What about Kings Quest, Space Quest, leisure suit larry etc :) all old graphical games that you could run on a lowly 8mhz 8086 25 years ago...!

    Its hard to remember the first one I played, I reckon it was one of 'The Red Baron', Elevator, Frogger, or castle. The first three were tied to the speed of an 8086, meaning if you played them on a 80286 and above, it would run too fast! Hence the advent of the RTC, it would really make game development hard without it!...

    I never got into the larry games, but now that you mention it...I think I recall having something like an 8086 compatibility mode?

    Anyhow, I don't remember the different games I played on my friends computers, only one, on a VC20 (<1MHz)...something where you drove a truck, and you had to spend money on tires and diesel and stuff and choose your freight in order to make money...can you remember that one?
