What is the first computer game you can ever remember playing? Also, whats the first computer game you remember seeing?

For me, it was Commander Keen 1. I can also remember my dad playing Wolf3d a few months before.

Probably Frogger at my dad's office.

Oh, and some game where you had to catch falling babies from a burning building.

Not really a kid. Not really an airbag. WHAT THE HELL IS IT?!? Who's asking? Are you French? An airbag is a safety device in a car that inflates during a collision and blocks you from smashing your head into the dashboard or steering wheel!

Stellar 7, I think the game was called. That and one of the King's Quest Games. Not soon after was Doom shareware.

The first one I played (which was also the first one I saw) was some Boulderdash clone. That one had butterflies and heart-shaped mines as baddies, and there were 26 levels, each one corresponding with a letter in the alphabet. It wasn't a PC, but some sort of old machine, I don't even know which.

I wish I could find this game for PC or for some old machine emulator...

The first PC game I played was "Pharaoh's Tomb". The second one was "Prince of Persia". The year was 1991.

Don't remember its name - I was far too young and my memory of the game is hazy, but it was a symbol-based game where you played as a catarpillar eating all sorts of symbols and then you had to avoid the T's (they were meant to be poisonous toadstools).

Um, you mean Centipede? Its a classic, you know.

I played stuff on my old C64. We had Choplifter, Frogger, Congo Bongo, Centipede, some game called 'Save New York' or something, Jumpman, Shamus, and of course Pac-Man. We had that machine in my house when I was born, so I have no idea when I first played it.

I remember having a Commodore 64 with a bunch of disks / cartridges for it. There was this one game I played a lot where you were a boat or something, and you paddled around a Venice-type city with waterways all around, picking up people and dropping them off somewhere else, and there were I think two hippos which swam around making bubbles, and if you ran into one it would eat the boat. I wish I could remember what the game was called.

Then there was Frogger and Pacman and all that stuff. I remember my dad had a healthy addiction to Pac-Man for a while (the only video game I ever remember him playing in any real capacity).

I remember playing pong and a game with mario and luigi and monster coming out of pipes . You had to kill them by jumping on the ceiling so that they fall head on ground to kick them. I have Pipeline in the head but I'm not sure if it is the real name.

Probably, but I wouldn't know. Like I said, I was too young back then and after that computer broke down, we didn't get a new computer until I was around ten - my parents never liked computer games.

Now I have the power to buy my own computer, yay >:-]

I think that game was actualy called 'Mario Brothers'. I heard it was made before Super Mario Brothers, but that might be a lie.

It was. It was made for arcades. It was also used in SMB3.

The original Mario Bros -was- made before Super Mario Brothers, and after Donkey Kong.

Either Defender or Sinistar. I was seven or eight or something. The arcade had like fifty games. Those are the only two I can remember playing. Sinistar scared me :/ Can't for the life of me remember which pc game I played first. Wasn't Doom that's all I know.

As far as PC games go, the first game I remember seeing someone play would by Labrynth(sp?), followed by Myst and then Doom. The first game I actually played would have to be either Myst of Journeyman Project, followed by Doom shareware.

It was on my mom's old Commodore 128, that's for sure. It was first computer I ever knew.

128? Never knew they made those, but at least you had a more advanced machine than I (I suppose).

It USED to be a 64...then she upgraded it shortly after I was born. That was about the only upgrade my dad would let her do; after that, he never understood why my mom kept wanting upgrades. She said, "There's more information on the internet we can obtain!" His response? "That's what a library is for!"

Geez, sometimes I wish my dad would just die. He can't even type!

Oops, more harsh words...I need to watch myself :/
