At what age did you start playing video games?

Recommended Posts

I think it must have been around 6-7yo. I started with a cd-rom version of Mame 32. I don't recall which was the first game I tried but I must have played more than 100 different ones that month 😄

Around the age of 3 years old. My first video game memory is Duke Nukem on DOS (aka Duke Nukum), but I probably played some games before that since my memory from that time is a bit sketchy. Duke Nukem is the game I first truly remember though.

I can't really say. Anyway, it seems like I played Pole Position when I was 8-years-old.  Of course, that was a game for Atari - a system popular when I was a kid.  I was a kid in the 1980s.

What sort of Atari games did you grow up with? I can imagine stuff like Yar's Revenge was super cool back then.

Qbert, Asteroids, Pitfall Harry were some.  Anyway, Pitfall Harry was my favorite and I remember one level took me days to beat.

OK, what games do you like?

Iv'e only played Space Invaders and Pitfall Harry, to be honest.  I mean, considering what you listed there.  Anyway, there was also Pole Position with I liked (a racing one).

I think I was around 5 or 6 when my parents bought a regular NES for the whole family.  The first game we played was Mario Bros. and then I think we got Zelda next.  That was my first gaming experience and it's all she wrote from there.
