    I doubt I can rely on my memory for that one, but it is always fun to talk about our oldest memories. Are you able to recall which game do you remember you played first?

    Super Mario Bros/Duck Hunt. One of them. Boring and predictable.

    Believe it or not, but my first game I actually played wasn't a Pokémon game, in fact @The Inhaling One was the only person to actually get me into playing Pokémon. The First game title I have ever played was none other than Super Mario World and The Legend of Zelda: Adventure of Link.

    Yes yes.. very mean games... especially Adventure of Link...

    I think the first game I played was probably the original Super Mario Bros on NES. But yeah, that shit's ancient history, I really couldn't tell you for certain what the first game I played was.

    The first game I ever played was Pokemon Gold for the Gameboy Color. My cousin gave it to me when I was 4 years old back when I lived in Florida. Too bad I lost it shortly after I actually got the game...

    First game I ever-played non-solo was probably the original Duke Nukem. First game on my own was probably one of the original Sonic games. The first game that blew my mind and started a long hobby/obsession was pokemon red.

    All three of those things surprise me.

    -Duke Nukem is a surprisingly adult game to have access to at a young age.
    -You're so much a Nintendo kid, it's weird you started with Sonic.
    -I don't think I've ever heard you gush about Pokemon the way most pokemon fans do.

    Well, the original duke nukem was a 2d probably 16-bit game. I think it still had a sense of humor but nothing too crazily adult. Just another platformer really, I think. I became a nintendo kid once I got my first console, but I played sonic before that happened. ALSO - I liked pokemon when I was younger. I don't think I kept with it as I aged. I can probably blame final fantasy and the like for that. A lot of what the kids these days call the stinkin' casuals only ever stuck with their gameboys and thought pokemon was as deep as RPGs got. Once you go deeper and try to go back it can feel a little frustrating. That's definitely how I felt about fire red when I played most of it on emulator. I wanted to hold the turbo button the entire game (though mind you I'm playing through FFXII on-and-off now and feel the same way)

    I had a similar problem with Paper Mario. The game is great, but it was also the first real RPG I played. (Which is weird that I started with the NES, but didn't play an RPG until the N64). After playing some deeper RPGs, Paper Mario loses a lot of its luster.

    Although it's still one of the most beautiful games on the N64.

    RPGs have come a long way since then though. Playing FFXII makes me wonder if the turn-based rpg is dead. I suppose the question is - was the turn-based system just a limit of the technology of the time, or does it have its own merit? Because Mass Effect for example is to my mind perhaps the most immersive RPG experience I have ever had and they're third-person shooters. (I suppose the modern competitor against Mass Effect would be the Elder Scrolls games which despite many hours of Skyrim I never felt as attached to. I really don't jive well with Bethesda games, despite the many things they do well. Only game of theirs I've played recently that feels polished is Dishonored. No, I'm not a big fallout fan; fallout seems to suffer from the same insane "We can build an entire detailed universe but we can't make a decent HUD or interface" problems as TES. I always feel like they need more designers on their team. Not imaginative worldbuilders. More nuts-and-bolts type people. Because BioWare games just work and look absolutely gorgeous for their time, whenever they come out. They're smooth as butter. Whereas with Bethesda there's always these flaws that need overlooking, imo.)

    You and I are getting pretty off topic. I made a new thread for us to continue this discussion in. Because we have a lot to discuss. Because you're super wrong.

    So wrong.

    The oldest game I ever played must have been for the Atari 2600. Of that I am sure. My oldest memories are with that console. the accessories for NES and Atari blur together.
    I remember we had a vault of Atari games, so many but we'd play the same five.
    Skiing was probably my first, if not it is at least one of the ones I played often as I remember it better than others.
    I also remember that if we didn't move bigfoot would eat you, or something... unless I am mixing things up. I must been between 3 and 4 years old after all.

    I am really tempted to say Alex The Kidd on Sega Master System :) was a brilliant game and I believe it was one of the first console games I ever played :)
