What was your first computer gaming experience?

Atari was also the first computer thing I ever did… followed by a C64…

I seriously don't think I ever beat a single game on the systems… but it never made it any less fun… how times have changed.

One set of grandparents had an Atari, one had an Intellivision, and we had a Colecovision….so we pretty much covered all grounds. Then we got a C64. I was pretty hooked on that Smurfs game for Coleco. Used to hate sliding those plastic cards into the keypad thing though!

Atari 400, a ZX81 with a hand soldered 16kB expansion. Later on a 800XL and finally a 1040STf before I switched to Linux on a 386 🙂

One of my first computer games was trying to land an Apollo LEM on the moon which was a DOS program. For some reason, it was alot more fun back in those days.

Atari was my first experience too, but the first one I owned (as in parents owned) was Colecovision with the Atari adapter. C64 was my first computer.

I hope there are more like you +Amanda Blain that I just haven't met yet(so far my roommate is the only one who has had a commodore64, and she was hesitant to admit it).. I can't remember what kind of atari I had, but comodore 64 was what I was into. Newer than that, but maybe the best, was sega mastersystem, I was just thinking the other day how much quality how packed into so many of those games!

Coleco vision was my first gaming electronic gaming experience (if you don't count that 4 color light up Simon game) I loved mouse trap and the zipper game, I think it was called Dr. Pepper.

After that it was atari – I played pole position so often we had to keep buying new joysticks, the rubber on those things wore out quickly!

Balloonacy and Gyruss were my first games on the Atari 400. And a self-written fishing game.

Most the arcade games were designed to go on forever so you couldn't beat them. My cousin had a 2600 while I decided to get a commodore 64 thinking that I could make my own games. I still remember typing in games from magazines like compute and ahoy. Great fun.

those were the days. 3 Lives per game, no continues.
Eating that cake would have been one thing I finished with that system.

I can't remember which was first – the Apple IIc we used for games with the tiny green monitor (One on One – Dr. J vs. Larry Bird) or the Atari 2400 we had…

Au contraire, +Jay Dee – see my link – that was basketball on an apple iic. If you dunked right, you could break the backboard glass…and watch is slowly fall to the ground. There was a little robot sweeper that used to come clean it up, if I recall!
