    First specific game I remember was Pole Position on my cousin's Commodore 64. We had a pong style game console which plugged into the TV well before that, but I couldn't tell you what it was!

    Edit: After some Googling, I'm pretty sure it was the Grandstand Adman 2000, this old brick of a thing. Man, I feel old.

    Mario on my Gameboy. At that point it was old, used to be my brothers or someone in my family.

    First game? probably something involving glooping apricot desert up my brother's bed.
    First electronic game would be mid eighties, I remember having an electronic shoot em up similar to space invaders.
    First computer loaded from a tape drive (which crashed a lot), some time around 1986
    First "proper" game would be Street Fighter II at an arcade in Cwmbran in 1992
    First console, NES, then SNES, N64, PS2, PS3
    And always a PC, but then I work in IT support and management

    My first experience with electronic games was on the Atari 2600:

    As far as what games, I remember playing Combat, Ms Pacman, Tennis (more like advanced pong), and Space Invaders at a friend's house who also had a 2600.

    Tic-tac-toe, probably, using pencil and paper. Like many others who hang out around these forums for some reason or other, my early gaming experiences didn't require a lot of expensive, energy-consuming equipment.

    I think it was either Tetris or Super Mario for the Gameboy - around 1990

    The first game I played was "3D Monster Maze" on a ZX81, in 1982 or so.
