Gaming

The first computer game you ever played

2017-05-26 09:24 #0 by: Niklas

When did you first play a computer game and which one was it?

I don't know the name of my first game but it was a space war type of game. We played it on a Commodore Pet 2001 in 1977. Unfortunately I can't find any images from that game. Today it would have seemed ridiculous but back then we loved and played it a lot.

The Pet 2001 was also were I first learned programming basic. :-)

Oh. Does Minesweeper Counts? In that case, I would like to remember that that was my first game.

I'm not that old, only 24 so it might have been 1997, or 1998.

You can't call it a game, but I remember the screen saver when you could follow a packman! Do you know what I'm talking about?

Nope, that doesn't ring a bell.

Minesweeper, oh gosh I remember that. It was released in 1989. I remember I use to play Rodent's Revenge endlessly and Chip's Challenge.

Sweet. I found out that you can buy the game on Steam. There is also a second version of the game.

#12 It reminds me of the first Wolfenstein. So many hours I spend playing it. GladThen I had to buy a better computer to play Wolfwenstein 2
The newest (?) I have got to my PS3, Wolfenstein the new order.
When I turned 70 I got a new Wolfenstein for my XBox 360. I wrote about it on Pixelgasm like this Lucky me to have grandchildren who knows to give me such a fine gift. One of the comments was "This made my day"

I can't remember which game was the first I played. I bought a Commodore 128 with a lot of programs an a lot of games. I remember some of them but I am not sure which of them I played first.

I was just going to write about Return to castle Wolfenstein. I don't remember if it was the second or the third.  It is a PC-version. I don't know if there are more versions of it. At that time I only had a PC and no other options.

#14 How many of them have you played?
