    I certainly played arcade games before we had a home console. We did end up with one of those radio shack pong console things first I think. I played a ton of 2600 games and then moved onto the NES. Super Mario Bros. is still my number one fav game of all time.

    I'm not sure I could say what my first video game was. I remember a time before video games had entered my life, and a time after. I went from Lincoln Logs, Legos, Darda Demons, and train sets to a playing arcade games, Apple 2, NES, and Commodore 64, not necessarily in that order. The biggest problem I think I have is I played a lot of older consoles, but not in an order at all related to their release. I do remember playing Oregon Trail and Pole Position on our Apple 2, so Oregon Trail is probably the first video game I ever played at home.

    Really though, my love affair with gaming started in 1989 with the NES Action Set which came with Super Mario Brothers / Duck Hunt dual cart, two controllers, and the light gun. My sister and I played Mario Bros. co-op, trading the controller back and forth after dying ... or after a death or two when the other would wrestle the controller away from the other.

    My first own gaming rig: Amiga 500. I'm not really sure what my first game was but I fondly remember playing Ports of Call, Black Gold and Pirates! I abandoned the Amiga for my first PC (486 DX2, 50 MHz) and haven't owned anything but PCs till then. I recently played the remake of Pirates! again and imo it's still a great game after all this time!

    Sonic on the NES?! Mind == Blown!

    Sonic is Sega's official mascot, just as Mario is Nintendo's. There was no Sonic game on the NES. The first Sonic game for a Nintendo system was Sonic Adventures for the Gamecube in 2003, 4 years after the game originally came out on the Sega Dreamcast, the last Sega console.

    I remember pong with my step brothers, but I was fairly young. I remember them playing some old Dungeons and Dragons game too, they wouldn't let me play it. I would say the one that made the biggest impact on me was getting my Game Boy, yes the original, right after they came out. That thing was my best friend. I would play Super Mario Land for hours and hours. I never got many games but the ones I did have I played the crap out of. Every couple of years I would get a new system, Genesis, N64, PS2, and on. I guess it's just in me blood.

    We also had an Apple and I played a lot of Oregon Trail.

    GREAT game! My favorite mario game is Mario64. I poured sooo many hours into that game!

    My very first game? Hmmmm....it had to be on the NES but I don't know which exactly was the first game to be played. I remember getting in trouble for swearing for the first time while playing Back to the Future on NES if that counts. :)

    I find it interesting that when it comes to the main Mario games it's easier to name the ones that weren't fantastic instead of the ones that were.

    Even then, you're listing games like Super Mario Sunshine that still has a metacritic score of 92, or Super Mario 64 DS with an 85 because of the touch screen control (I play using only the d-pad).
