    the first one I really mastered was an early 80's arcade game called Defender.
    after that I got to Time Pilot and Galaga -
    a fond memory for me was mooching around the brighton le sands Hotel (south Sydney) as a 10-13 year old
    when my parents would go there for lunches pretty regularly. they fed themselves on fisherman's baskets and
    fed me with 20c coins and I went and played all the games there, including the pinballs
    until the local winos had all had enough of me beating em.

    A cocktail style arcade table in a Pizza Hut lobby.... Early Space Invaders, when it was just black and white. I used to take my bike and ride their after school, was much farther than I was allowed to ride, but I would sit their for hours pumpin in quarters and then try to ride home as fast as I could to get back before sunset.

    My grandparents had one of the early home Pong machines in the mid 1970's. I'd suspect that I played a Space Invaders cabinet at a bar or restaurant some time after that, but before my first experience with home Atari systems or video arcades.

    My first video game was, arguably, Donkey Kong Jr Game & Watch. If that doesn't count as a video game (which it isn't, exactly), then it would be, possibly, Grand Prix or Jetpac on the ZX Spectrum. Something like that, anyway.

    I got back into video games as an adult, when I was 24 - my first video game at that time was GTA Vice City.

    Pong... mid 70s. I went into my favorite bar and they had a Pong game built into a table. Folks were standing three deep around that table. We’d never seen anything like it.
