What was the first game you ever played?

Recommended Posts

Late to the party again! First electronic game was in 1974 - tic-tac-toe on a machine in the Technological Museum , which later moved and was renamed The Powerhouse Museum. Then a generic tv game machine with pong etc, then a Vic-20 and so much more.

Some of those types were pretty cool.  I think I had a dedicated Space Invaders clone for a while, from memory it had fairly primitive colour dots and not that many positions on "screen".

BC (Before Computer) in 1983, my tally of handhelds and consoles wasn't all that much.
Pong + shooter generic clone around 1980ish, maybe earlier.
Atari 2600 in 1982.
Donkey Kong dual screen handheld probably around the same time.  Space Invaders clone probably a bit earlier.

Actual real computer - Atari 400 in mid 1983.
