Sorry, I couldn't be bothered to read all that... the lists are too long.

Mine are;

Bird Strike (Electron) - First ever game.
Alley Cat (C64) - first C64 game I played.
Roland On The Ropes (CPC464) - First Amstrad game.
Dragon's Lair Pt. 2: Escape From Singe's Castle (Amiga) - Loved watching it.
Space Ace (Amiga) - Again, a joy to watch.
Dragon's Lair Pt. 2: Escape From Singe's Castle (C64) - WOW!
Alex Kidd In Miracle World (SMS) - My first SMS game (Built in.)
Sonic The Hedgehog (SMD) - My first SMD game.
The Terminator (SMD) - Loved it and was addicted to the movie.
Super Mario World (SNES) - My first SNES game.

There were games since, but I was no longer a child (SWOS 96/97 and GTA: Vice City stand out.)

Feel free to not bother reading this by the way! :wink: :lol:
