First game ever played in my parents home-80's

Post by BlackBelt1976 » Fri Nov 23, 2012 9:30 pm

My first game was Transbot, Sega Master System. I will never forget the excitement of tuning in the old T.V and finally seeing Transbot on screen. The whole family gathered round and I was hooked on it for the remainder of the day. Good old memories :P

That would have been "Through the wall" on the Horizons tape that came with my 48k spectrum. Followed by Survival. I think the first commercial game I played at home was Booty, although TBH I'm not 100% on that.

[EDIT] No, it was JetPac, just remembered.

Centipede on the VCS in 1986, I was 3!

Second most game I remember was Leisure Suit Larry in the Land of the Lounge Lizards on my step dads black and white LCD laptop in 1987 - surely a 4 year old should not have been exposed to this game??

Then Safari Hunt/Hang On for the SMS and also Scramble Spirits- good times :)

Either blue meanies from outer space or interceptor frogger on the Vic 20... The most exciting, yet argument filled Christmas of my life... My dad hadn't realised he'd lose his beloved tv over Christmas..

It was defiantly something C64 related, more than likely Operation Wolf or Rambo 2.
