    No, this is not a collection of Penthouse-esque letters, unfortunately. But I do want to know...

    What was your first experience playing video games?

    The first game I can remember playing was when I was about 4 and living in Illinois. This would be about 1990. My neighbors had an Atari system and what I believe was a copy of 1942. Needless to say, I've always loved those types of overhead-perspective scrolling shooters.

    What about all of you?

    Hell if I can remember the first experience I've had. But I sure do remember the Coleco. A.K.A. my gaming gateway drug. Sad thing is this was roughly 20 years ago, and I still remember not getting past the damn first level of Smurfs. ****ing Gargamel and his ****ing picket fences. **** that guy.

    My first arcade experience was the ninja turtles arcade game (I think... either that or some shooter game, I played a lot of different games that day). The one where april has those massive boobs.

    First home console experience was with my babysitter's NES. I think I was 6 at the time. My first game was Double Dragon. I loved going over her place because she had a crapload of atari and NES games. That was basically all I did while I was over there, play video games. Well, aside when we had bible study together. No video games in the bible. :(

    One of my dad's business partner bought me the original Gameboy back in the day. That thing was 40 pounds and only had Tetris, but it was awesome. I can't think of anything before that.

    First experience was playing Sonic on the Genesis when I was 3. I'd run to the left and then start crying because I couldn't get anywhere. :(

    First experience? The original "Theme Park", and also various Disney "storybook" titles, if they were ever called games!

    One of my first, if not THE first game I played was that strange bumper car game they put on the Windows 95 CD.

    I also got a disc "America's Greatest: 101 Games Compilation". 101 shareware demos of gaming goodness. Commander Keen, Doom, Wolfenstein, Spear of Destiny, Castle of the Winds, BioMenace, Duke Nukem 2 and other such great titles.

    I remember my first time. It was a game on the SEGA Genesis that I used to play at my friend's place all the time. Streets of Rage! I loved that game, brings back some good memories...

    The first game I ever owned was Spyro The Dragon for the playstation. Man, that game owned so much.

    Super Mario World for the SNES. I also had an old Atari that I may have played before, but I don't recall. Sufficient to say I got hooked from day one.

    first time

    i'm pretty sure my first experience of playing video games was when i was about 3 or 4 and i started playing Super Mario Bros. on the original game boy - you know that big fat chunky one, that weighed like 10 kilos.

    I think it was a NES. We got in back in the mid 90s from these people who didn't want it anymore and I can't even remember what it was called. Was fun for a day or so though.
