The first game I remember was an village management game for the <URL url="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BBC_Micro"><s></s>BBC Micro<e></e></URL>. This would have been in the early '80s. Looking back on it it is no surprise I took to Civ as soon as I was introduced to it.

Pirate Adventure. Loaded from a cassette tape on a Tandy 4K.
I upgraded to an 8K super-computer a year later.

I'm reasonably certain it was Super Mario World on the SNES. But I also remember playing Where in the World is Carmen San Diego? at a really young age.

Back in 80s staying at my cousins cottage out in Saskatchewan, they had an NES with several sports games. Major League Baseball was the one I remember best. Don't think I had ever seen a video game of any kind before then.. we didn't even have a computer.

Too long and too many games ago. Maybe one of Moraff's.

The first video game I ever played was Pong which I played on an Atari 2600. Half of you folks don't seem old enough to even know what that is.

Edit: I see Cutless is also in the over 40 age group. :lol:
