Pokémon is the big one of my childhood, Blue in particular, and Squirtle as my first Pokémon. From that pretty much stems everything Nintendo-wise, I got a N64 for Pokémon Stadium, played a few other Nintendo games, wasn't much of a giant fan, but then I saw Pikachu was in this new "Super Smash Bros. Melee" game, got a Gamecube for it, and that began my love for Nintendo pretty much.
Outside of that though I usually played my Mega Drive (Genesis) as a kid, and I fondly remember Sonic the Hedgehog, Toejam and Earl, Ecco...
Oh and the game that pretty much got me interested in the English language as a whole (as in Literature and the like) was Final Fantasy VII.
Yep, I played the game with terrorists, swearing and cross dressing when I was a little kid. Funnily enough I didn't complete it until last year, heh.
So yeah the big three are probably... Sonic Jam (it was a compilation of the first 3 on the Sega Saturn and it was brilliant), Pokémon Blue and Final Fantasy VII.
Well my first game would have to be this horrible pathetic degrading Barbie Genie game for GameBoy Advanced... I cringe at the thought of it now, after experiencing amazing games like Pokemon Blue and Super Mario and of course, Ocarina of Time *cough OoT>WW cough* ^_^ lol I have nothing against WW! Just my opinion.
The game that got me into gaming was either Super Mario Land for the Gameboy or Sonic the Hedgehog 2 for the Sega Genesis. The only other game that I can think of that got me into gaming is Pokemon Blue version. I played that game for hours and hours. Too bad I lost it.
I believe it was Super Mario Land. First game I ever played and I played it addictively. I think. I can't remember how old I was when I played it nor do I remember if it was actually my first game ever. But I think SML was my first game and the game that brought me into the world of gaming.
Well my first video game I ever owned was actually two; they were named "Elf English" and "Lilo and Stich: Trouble in Paradise" . They were both for the PC, and the elf one was an english learning program for kids. I never reallly learned anything from it....The lilo and stich game was an adventure game, but I could never finish it and gave up on it a long time ago. Even though I do not play these games, they were still my first video games I have ever gotten.
The only game that got me interestedin video games was Spirit Tracks. Ever since then, I have been a video gamer.
I got into gaming when I got a DS and Pokemon Diamond for Christmas three years ago. I loved playing it, and sereously got about 350 hours of play into it before I lost it.
Then, my brother's friend Anthony lent me PH, which introduced me to the Zelda series.
Ah, yes. Lego Star Wars. That was actually my first, I had the computor version when I was 6 or something. But I actually don't think it counts for me, since technically, correct me if I'm wrong, it was a computor game.
