    Default What was your first video game?

    Do you remember your first game? I remember shoving quarters in a Pong machine at the local fair in the early 70s.

    Pong for me too, and while I was working on "War Games" as a propman, we had the Galaga machine in our storeroom from the arcade scene, which we played constantly. I got into the couple hundred thousand score, but the other guys were much better than me.

    I remember when Breakout came out (IN COLOR). I didn’t think it could get any better.

    Taking "video" game loosely, the first I played was Colossal Cave over a teletype printer. My much-older cousin (uncle?) ran a main-frame time-share in Calgary and had me in severe hero-worship mode!

    I can't remember the first I played in an arcade--lots of Joust on a youth-centre machine, but that was much later! Probably Asteroids or PacMan

    The first I had at home was Cannonball Blitz on the Apple ][+, followed soon after by Choplifter

    I remember something called "pog" when I was in infants school. You'd input commands like "pog goes pop" or "pog falls in a hole"
