What are your first video games ever played, as far as you can remember?

For me it's

First side-scroller (also first game ever) - Rayman (God, I miss Rayman)

First 3D platformer - Crash Bandicoot (Everybody's playing it, so why not?)

First adventure game - Freddi Fish 3: The Case of the Stolen Conch Shell (I used Walkthroughs throughout the whole game)

First first-person shooter - Half Life (I call Headcrabs Bean-turkeys)

First RPG - Pokemon Red (The day I first got a hand-held is the day I stopped complained during long drives in a car)

First Survival Horror - Resident Evil 1 (I had nightmares because of this)

First game with violence - Oddworld; Abe's Oddysey ("What do you mean you can't shoot stuff in this game?!" - Friend of mine)

First game ever ended - Freddi Fish 3: The Case of the Stolen Conch Shell (Walkthroughs)

First game to end in multiplayer mode - Legend of Mana (With my cousin, all weekend)

First game to like so much that I wait for the next game the developers are making - Jak and Daxter (I didn't really pay attention to developers before then)

  • I honestly don't remember a lot of these. I can, however, take educated guesses.

    First side-scroller: Alex Kidd in Miracle World (I distinctly remember constantly dying at the rock-paper-scissors bit)
    First 3D platformer: Super Mario 64
    First adventure game: The Secret of Monkey Island (or maybe... no, it's probably MI)
    First first-person shooter: Doom (I think)
    First RPG: Final Fantasy VII (I may have played them before, but I didn't truly know what they were until this)
    First Survival Horror: Resident Evil 2 (I don't even remember the first one, so this must have been it)
    First game ever finished: The Secret of Monkey Island (And I have no idea how I did it without walkthroughs, either)
    • First side-scroller: Super Mario Land for GameBoy. Probably the first game I ever played
    • First 3D platform game: Psychonauts. Remains the only 3D platform game I've played and am ever likely to play.
    • First adventure game: Sam & Max Hit the Road. Usually counted as the first game I ever played, despite Mario Land.
    • First action-adventure game: Tomb Raider, possibly.
    • First FPS: Either Doom or Blake Stone: Aliens of Gold. Probably Blake.
    • First RPG: Deus Ex. Not too fond of RPG's, other than this one and the Witcher.
    • First survival horror: probably the GameCube remake of Resident Evil, played around a friends. Not a big fan of survival horror.
    • First game with violence: Is Mario violent? I mean, you are jumping on poor weird creatures with intent to harm.
    • First game ever completed: Absolutely no clue. At a guess the shareware of Blake or Doom.
    • First sim: one of the early versions of Flight Simulator, or the original X-Wing.
    • First RTS: Total Annihilation. But I never got into it, so the one I actually count as first is StarCraft.
    • First TBS: Civilisation. The original. Never got anywhere with it.
    • First racing game: Wacky Wheels! Best. Racing. Game. Ever!
    • First online game: Day of Defeat. Back when it was still a mod in its early days, before the developers got hired by Valve and a commercial version was produced.
    • First puzzle game: Tetris. Naturally
    Anything else can pretty much be summed up as "what games in those genres were Apogee and LucasArts producing at that time?"
  • the ones I know:

    first game/fps: Wolfenstein 3D
    first adventure game: Full Throtle, It came with dark forces, I have always been a star wars geek.
    first sidescroller: Rayman
    First puzzleish game: Gubble
    First 3d Platformer: Mort the Chicken
    First simulation: Either the sims of Sim City
    First RPG: Chrono Trigger (still havent beated, just got to magus, I've been playing it for 10 years)
    First RTS: Warcraft 3
    First TBS: Civ 2
    First Racer: Whacky Wheels! anyone know where I can find this now?
    First Online Game: WoW
    First Beated: Rayman Hoodlums Revenge (either that or Metroid Fusion which reminds me...)
    First Action Adventure: Metroid Fusion
