Mario 3. I thought the goombas were puppies and I tried to pet them which resulted in me running into em and dying over and over

I honestly can't really remember, it was one of these...

Atari Football (Atari 2600)
Keystone Kapers (Atari 2600)
Centipede (arcade)
Donkey Kong (arcade)
Pac-Man (arcade)
Super Mario Bros (NES)
Pong TV Unit
Mario Game & Watch

Those were my collected first video game experiences. A friend of mine had the Atari 2600 and those two games I remember fondly. I also played Super Mario Bros to death at another friend's house. I remember the Showbiz Pizza arcades with all the classic machines back then, too.

One of my buddies only had a pong unit, which we played until he tried to strangle me with the cord after I beat him. He didn't pop his ritalin for the day I guess...

Crap, almost forgot Oregon Trail for the Apple II. I remember staying after school for extended play sessions of that one!

Zork, pc.

What, you mean graphical? SMB, NES.

Gemfire/Killer Instinct on the SNES, one of those two.

Super Mario Bros.

Part of the SMB / Duck Hunt / World Class Track Meet 3-in-1 bundle with the red Zapper.

I even faintly remember being at Toys 'R Us late at night to get it. I was probably only 5 or so. I don't ever remember not having the NES, that's for sure...

I'm not really sure since it was so long ago, but I think it was Asteroids for the Atarii 2600. If it wasn't Asteroids it was almost certainly Pitfall instead.

Pokemon Blue when I was 3, was re-playing through Leafgreen not long ago and was amazed at how at age 3 I could make it all the way to the elite four on my own. My first console game was when I was 5, and it was Spyro The Dragon.

My memory isn't positive on this, but it was either the first Super Mario Bros. or Super Mario Bros. 3 (i.e. one of the classic 8-bit games). When I was little I would watch my brother play the NES and grew up to become a frequent gamer even though he rarely plays them these days. I think I started playing video games when I was three years old; I'm 23 now so it would have been at least 20 years (coinicidentally, Kirby's 20th anniversary was this year) since then and still a fan of series I grew up with like Mario, Zelda, and Kirby (got into Pokémon at age nine and branched out into way more series starting when I was 17 or so).
