    I remember on my 5th birthday I received a Super Nintendo Entertainment System, which came with Super Mario World. It was a glorious day and began a lifelong love of video games.

    The first video game I owned was the Mario Bros./Duckhunt combo for the Nintendo. It was so crazy to be able to use the gun controller! I still have a copy that I play occasionally.

      I certainly remember the Mario Bros./Duckhunt combo.  My cousins had that and me and my brother loved using the gun controller as well.

    I'm going to be showing my age here, but the first game(s) I ever owned and played were a bundle pack that came with Atari 2600.  Space Invaders, Missile Command, Asteroid, and one other game that I forgot the title to.

    If Gameboy counts - Pokemon Red. If you're looking for full system - I think it was a Tony Hawk skateboarding game.

    Pong, Asteroids, and Space Invaders.

    My favorite arcade game was actually Mr. Do. They had Mr. Do's crazy castle, and later came out with Mr.Do's crazy coaster. I like Mrs. Pacman, Defender, galaxy, and Centipede, But I liked Mr. Do the best.

    When nintedo came out. I had super mario, and Donkey Kong. When Super Nintendo came out, I went game crazy, and have lots of games. like Sim City, Super Mario World, Tetris, and a few others.

    It's a tossup between Adventure and Mario Bros., both for the Atari 2600. We had a handful of games, so I'm not sure which came first.

    There's a distinct possibility it was E.T. We did own that game. SHUDDER.

    I believe it's a toss up on Asteriods and Space Invaders for the Atari System.  Course that's quite a few years back before playstation and xbox.

    I'm not actually sure. I distinctly remember finding some old Atari (weather it was from the 2600 or not I don't know) game cartridges laying around my house when I was a kid, but I don't recall ever owning an Atari console. The first game I can actually remember playing would probably be the original Super Mario Bros./ Duckhunt on the NES. After that it was either Megaman or Zelda 2 (also NES). I didn't really become a hardcore gamer until the PlayStation era when I got a hold of Final Fantasy VII so *shrugs*.

    a 3d platformer called Mort the chicken. I loved that game, but it was pretty weird. you were a chicken, and you had to rescue little baby chicks from strange jello cube-like aliens. Looking back, I think that assimilated itself into my personality
