How the hell do you guys remember everything? :lol:

I remember only Fort Apocalypse being my first onwed C64 game, and Defender of the Crown being my first owned Amiga game, but they definitely weren't the first ones I tried if I also consider friends' machines... I have no idea what games I really played first.

This could be tricky to remember some, but here are some from my memory:

Sega Master System - Sonic The Hedgehog (built-in to my brother's Master System II)

Sega Mega Drive - Sonic The Hedgehog (on the Mega Games 6 cartridge that packed with later Mega Drive II systems)

Sega Saturn - I have some fuzzy memories of playing Daytona USA on my cousin's Saturn when I was about 6 or 7 years old

Sega Dreamcast - Soul Calibur II (On my Cousin's Dreamcast)

Sega Game Gear - Land of Illusion starring Mickey Mouse (on a different cousin's Game Gear)

NES - I was playing this before I can remember so it's quite hard to say which one was my first, it was quite possibly Super Mario Bros.

SNES - I think this was Killer Instinct when one of my brother's friends brought his SNES over

N64 - I'm about 90% sure this was Goldeneye

Game Cube - I remember having a quick go on Super Mario Sunshine in a shop, so it's probably that

Game Boy - Tetris

Game Boy Color - I don't know what it's called but it was a platformer in which you play as an anthropomorphic rat. It was on my friend's Game Boy Color

Game Boy Advance - Super Mario Advance (I bought this with my birthday money)

Nintendo DS - The Metroid Prime Hunters - First Hunt that came with the first batches of the DS

Nintendo 3DS - Pilot Wings Resort in a shop a few days before the console launched

Playstation - I think it might have been Tekken 2 or Actua Soccer 2, although I'm not completely sure.

Playstation 2 - I think it was Metal Gear Solid 2

Playstation 3 - Resistence Fall of Man

Playstation 4 - I briefly played Octodad in a shop shortly after the console's release

Pretty sure it was 'Blitz' on the VIC 20, and possibly 'The Lone Raider' on the Atari 800XL.

Apart from that, iv'e no idea!

Maybe 'Space Invaders Infinity Gene' on the PS3... maybe!?!?

Oh, one I just remembered, 'Chuckie Egg' on the BBC, I remember cos I played this at college, years before I acquired my own BBC B.
