Raging against the Q-Bert?!? LOL.

My first console was an Atari 2600. Big blocky games. 128 bytes!!! of RAM. And probably on of the best controllers every made. You could bounce that joystick off a wall, or your opponent's skull, and it would just keep on going. Atari kept that controller into all their products. Games that stood out from that box were Space Invaders, Adventure, and Pitfall.

My first computer was an Atari 800. The BEST game I ever played on that machine, and I had tons, would have to be Joust. There was something about the physics of it, how smooth it moved. I wouldn't see comparable movement for another five years when Prince of Persia wowed us. But I played Joust a whole lot more.

(No, not the modern Prince of Persia reboot. This Prince of Persia. Yes, that was start of the art. )

Loved Joust, I forgot about that game! And now that I'm thinking about it, I can't remember when we got our 386 machine with Their Finest Hour; it might have been after I was introduced to Prince of Persia on my school's Apple II's...

This is gonna sound horrible, but it's funny and true. My first game was Leisure Suit Larry, the original, when I was about 4. For me it was more pattern determination than anything else - learn that this series of events ends the game, this series lets it continue, I had no idea how to win. When I was 5 or 6 I got in to Civilization, and that's really the first game where I remember truly understanding the game I was playing, what my actions meant in the game. My strategy sucked, of course, and I constantly got stomped, but I knew what the different mechanics were and meant, and actually tried to play to win.
