    I thought it might be fun for people to list some of their first games. Beware it may show your age :laugh: Ill start.

    My first game was "Demons to Diamonds" for the Atari 2600.

    Then PacMan for the Atari 2600.

    After that I got Combat, Space Invaders, Yars Revenge and E.T.

    hehe, my first game was Alex the kid in wonderland, which was built into my Sega Master System. Probably then played Sonic one and got addicted to 1's and 0's.. the rest is history. hehe :toast:

    I just found the box art for Demons to Diamonds. Damn the box art sucked back then!

    If any game ever needed a remake its Dig Dug. Only it would have to stay 2D! Kinda like the way they recreated Bionic Commando recently.

    Moon Patrol? Ever since I was a kid I wanted that game. Never got it however. I played it once in the arcade and remember jumping over pits and being able to shoot above AND in front of the moon buggy. How revolutionary! :laugh:

    it was awesome, it involves lots of jumping anbd shooting the aliens, but it gets quite difficult towards the end, i never passed it. my parents restricted my Atari gameplay at the time so i couldnt play more than an hour a day, lol. I think for its day it was quite revolutionary, it and some other games i played then.

    I used to love the Atari for games like that. Barzerk and such.

    As for my 1st game was with hand controller that took like 6 AA batteries and plugged into the TV which was in the 70's. I'd post a pic if i could ever find one.

    Creaminess color with black part with orange buttons well 3 buttons with both controllers and a slider on each.

    2 bats and a square ball haha. No idea what it was called or the controllers :(.

    EDIT: I remember those blisters from the 2600 controller and the nes one.

    Flight Simulator on the Sinclair ZX-81, LOL! It needed the 16kb RAM pack, it was sooo advanced. I'm not quite Babbages' age but not too far off!
