I don't know

I think the first console I played was the Sega Megadrive. Not sure which game would have been first, I remember playing Streets of Rage and Golden Axe on it but that's all. Megadrive ain't even in the poll though, so I went other

The first console I actually owned myself though would have been either PS1 or N64. I simply can't remember which one I got first though.

Sonic Chaos on the Sega GameGear.



Steam ID: Quakecore89 / GOG: AMDFX89 / Xbox Live Tag: QUAKEcore89 / NS: SW-7937-5976-6855

Current PC: Ryzen 7 3700X/32GB 3200MHz DDR4 RAM/GTX 1660 Super/Crucial 250GB SATA M.2+Corsair 1TB NVMe)

Pit Fall on the 2600.



Would have been something on the Atari 2600. I was born in 1981, and the Atari was around for longer than I remember. Could have been any number of games from Donkey Kong Jr, Mouse Trap, Adventure, Wizard of Wor, Pitfall 2, etc.



It wasn't the first game I ever played, but Pitfall 2 was the first amazing game I ever played. First open world experience. Before that every game I had played took place on a single screen. Sometimes the color of the screen would change, sometimes the level design would change, but always a single screen. Pitfall 2 is the grandfather of Metroid. I'm sure it doesn't live up to today's retro game standards, but for the day it was phenomenal.

Well showing my age? a generic piece of sh1t that played variants on the batten moving 'Pong". Not just a startling two bats, one each side, but variations akin to the table football game found in pubs. That was my first home console.

After this, my mate had a 2600 and I'd run home from school to then ride my bike to his house. I was officially addicted to video games. An Intellivision then followed, oh how I loved it and boasted in the trivia it was partially 16bit. Then came the C64 for Xmas one year. Nerdom now entrenched, and then 1986 came along and so did history - the might Amiga 500. I was officially anti-Intel and MS for the rest of my life as I trounced through Amiga after Amiga. from the a600 to the 1200a (still working today - they don't make them like that anymore.)

And for those that think I digress from "console" to computer? The Amiga, invented by Jay Miner was in its inception meant to be a console.



Why isn't the Wii an option? That's what I remember first. It was Wii Sports.

Because...dang, there are only 10 options.  The PS3 and the Xbox360 aren't represented either.  And that's just crazy...WiiSports was the first game you ever played.  Did you enjoy your experience?

Oh. Well, the first video game I played was I'm pretty sure Super Mario Bros. 3 on the Gameboy Advance (I believe, I am not sure). I lost my Gameboy Advance very quickly, to the point that even when my entire house was cleaned out so we could move I still could not find the thing. 

But yes, the first one I remember was the Wii. I loved Wii Sports so much. Very fun game and if I still had my Wii I'd probably still love the game. Honestly was probably my favorite game on Wii aside from Mario Kart and Smash Bros. Loved the boxing game.

So... if you loved Wii Sports that much why don't you still have your Wii?
