Gamer since 1983. My parents bought a Vectrex when I was six (yes I'm the ripe old age of 32 now!!).
Progressed from that to an Amstrad CPC 464 then Megadrive when Sonic came out. Happy daysJune 29, 2009 at 9:16 am #29209ThickbrowMember
My first system was COLECOVISION and I started playing it when i was in grade 1 or grade 2…. So when i was around 5yrs old or so.
Here is a link for those who don't remember it.
a closer picture of the system is here: http://www.computercloset.org/Colecovision.htm
This system was amazing. It wasn't really kid friendly and I ended up breaking the controller a few times. It looked more like a tv remote and a twisty knob on the top.
The games were great. I remember playing a game called Ladybug. which was a cooler version of pacman IMO. I also played DonkeyKong on here and a game called Carnival was pretty fun. (all these games are linked from the wiki site)
I had also remembered playing a smurf game. I was SOOOO sure of this but everyone i had talked to since then could not remember it. Well after reading this thread i checked on Wiki and there is INFACT a smurf game that came out for this system.June 29, 2009 at 9:26 am #29210Nath-The-GreatMember
I remember it was an Atari 800XL when i was 8 i think, so waaaaaay back in 1988 (yeah im an old git!) I loved that machine, even though it was a tape loader and would crash 9 times out of 10 lol.
Then i switched allegiance to Nintendo and owned a NES and SNES respectively. Duck Hunt what a game!June 29, 2009 at 10:03 am #29214P0kennyMember
My first console was a Saga Mega Drive, I was about 6/7ish and I am now 22.June 29, 2009 at 11:31 am #29215Oz-MetalheadMember
My first console that i can remember playing was a Sega Master System which had Alex the Kid built into it!
And that was when i was….um 7 or 8 maybe? So i started around 1993-4.June 29, 2009 at 11:36 am #29216kingofgames73Member
First console was PS1, the very 1st game i played was something called MotoGP World Tour, First hand held console was the game boy a.k.a `The Brick`June 29, 2009 at 3:17 pm #29221BigWoopMagazineMember
Been a gamer for as long as I can remember (literally). One of the first things I can remember is being like 3 or 4 years old when my older brother opened the box for the NES. I was hooked. Marble Madness, Legend of Zelda, Mario Bros. (DUCK HUNT!), Blaster Master, boo yaah for the classics. I'm 23 now, and wish that NES still worked, and that I knew where those games were (I lost some in college, what a shame).June 29, 2009 at 4:08 pm #29230MiiiitchMember
