When I was about 4 years old and I got really upset that my cousins wouldn't let me play Super Mario Bros 3 with them, this would have been 1990 when that game had just come out in North America.

The sh*tfit I threw was how I got a NES and the first game I ever played was the Super Mario Bros/Duck Hunt cartridge that came with it. My grandma and stepgrandpa sat down and taught me how to play it.

My earliest gaming memory was playing games with this huge joystick controller set up. I don't even remember the name of it. It wasn't an Atari but very similar. I looked up colecovision thinking that was it but I can't seem to fibd the exact controller box thing I had.

Anyways Space Invaders on Atari was a bit stronger of a memory playing that at my dads place during the summer.

I didn't have an Atari as a little kid because it was before my time but I did have one of those plug in Atari things when I was a teenager, it had Adventure, Breakout and Yars Revenge on it and I can't remember what else, I f*cking loved that thing and I got real pissed off when I messed it up trying to change the batteries using an electric screwdriver and it stopped working. But I've been a fan of Atari games ever since and I would love to have an Atari 2600, hopefully I'll strike gold at a thrift shop someday.

My mom told me about how she had a Magnavox Odyssey as a kid and she was surprised that I knew what it was.



This is as old school as it gets.

I found the device I was associating in my memory with a controller/joystick. It was actually a cable box remote from the 80s and looked like this.

When I later got a NES with the super mario/duck hunt combo. I used to just press the gun against the screen instead of being a normal distance away.

My first console was a SNES that came with Super Mario All-Stars but for a few years I was playing games at other peoples houses, so I think my earliest memory is various text-based games on a friends C64.

You mean like Zork? The kind of game where you can go east, west, north, or south and then you get a description of where you are now and you have to figure out text commands to interact with the environment? I'm kind of fascinated with those games in the same way I'm fascinated with grid-based dungeon crawlers. It's such a weird way to interact with a game but oddly enthralling and evocative.

Oval track racing on a black screen. Cant remember how many cars were involved, but no more than two, barely looking like cars and in the same colour as the race track. The race track was made of two oval shapes and nothing else.

Wow, looks unusual. My earliest gaming memory is playing Super Mario Bros on the NES with my siblings. We spent hours trying to beat the levels and save Princess Peach. Another fun memory is playing Tetris and trying to beat each other's high scores. Recently, I’ve been checking out worldwinner , where you can compete in various games for prizes. Gaming has come a long way since then, but those early days were the best. Those old games still have a special place in my heart.
