    The Alex Kidd that is native to the system, as in when you boot the Sega without a cartridge in it.

    I'm pretty sure we had pretty much all of them.

    Castlevania for gameboy was a nightmare. The controls were unresponsive as hell.

    I do remember always fooling around with the password system, and at several times finding the password to the last boss on a fluke.

    The music was great though.

    All these games belonged to my older brother though. The first games that were truly mine, was for the Amiga which I inherited from an older cousin. Had loads of games for it, like cannon fodder, final fight, and many other classics I can't remember the names of.

    Hated how you had to change floppy disks pretty much whenever there was loading to be done, but it was neat how it had ports for mouse, joysticks, and that it was even compatible with my Sega controllers.

    Had tons of fun with it.

    holy crap, I'm old :o   I think the first video game I ever played was pac-man (the big, old school arcade version), or some shooter spaceship game on the Atari

    One time, I played the NES version of Tetris for so long that I saw falling blocks whenever I closed my eyes.

    Me too! To this very day, if I play Tetris long enough, I even start seeing things in Tetris shapes, pretty weird.

    That's not limited to Tetris.

    When I used to play the hell out of stepmania(dance dance revolution clone for pc), I'd see those neon colored arrows gliding downwards whenever I closed my eyes. It made it real difficult to sleep sometimes, so I stopped playing.

    Either one of the first three Super Mario Bros for the NES or Duckhunt at the young age of approximately 6. I have no memory of which we bought first or if we got them all with the system, so I have no idea which is technically first. But the only games we ever owned for the NES were those and Tiny Toons, and I remember getting TT for Easter, so it had to be one of them.

    @ Hian: So it must be something related to the constant repetition of colorful patterns in certain sequences. That's interesting.

    @ Racheal: Tiny Toons was awesome, I remember playing a lot of that game, it was quite hard too, at least for me.

    Elmyra scared my six- to seven-year-old self a lot. That is what I remember most about that game, besides the difficulty. Though that was probably somewhat related to the difficulty.

    You know what game really scared me, both because of difficulty and theme? 

    Friday the 13th  :o

    I can imagine; too bad that whole multiplayer thing didn't work out for them in the end, bu I can understand how it would have been very difficult to implement multiplayer functionality into a puzzle game back then.

    Yeah.

    The game just melted my brain entirely.

    Luckily about a week later I got my second game... Crash Bandicoot.

    It's been a long time. I believe it was either Asteroids or Donkey Kong, both arcade games.

    Probably Super Mario with my dad when I was very young.  But the first one I actually recall is Spyro on the PS1. I have vague memories of others on the Nintendo systems but I can't remember their names or plot unfortunately :/

    @ Emzie: Another Tetris fan, nice!

    @ Shades: Those great retro classics, they remind me of the little old basement where I played Atari all day long at weekends.

    @ Corvellia: It's awesome that your dad played with you. A quick look at the Wii U's virtual console might refresh your memory; although, a lot of the best games are still missing.

    I forgot to mention. The first game to get me reaaaaaly hooked was Pandora's Box for the pc. One of the better puzzle games, with puzzles that are just impossible on a table.

    @ Laura Yeah Right: I'm not familiar with Pandora's Box, I'll have to look into it, now that I'm intrigued.

    @ Jarl Van Damme: Now that's a great start as a gamer, probably the best game ever conceived imho.
