ITT: The year you were born and the first game you played

1998. It was either Super Mario World or Tetris on the Gameboy. Either way, my gaming days had a fantastic start.

      SMW is obviously on SNES. I say Gameboy because Tetris was on every system in existence.

    Flåklypa Grand Prix (PC) pic related. Norwegian game based on 1975 doll movie, so I don't think a lot of VR has played this? A point and click game with many mini-games to get parts to build a car you race with. English name is The Pinchcliffe Grand Prix.

    Also: Toy Story 2: Buzz Lightyear to the Rescue (PC) and Tarzan (PC)

    First console game: N64, 007 Goldeneye

    Borrowed it from my cousin and was blown away by how "big" the world was back then and how you could go wherever you wanted. I legitimately thought the only move was tackle until I realized you could use more than one move.

    Can't remember exactly but I am almost certain it was probably Super Mario Bros. NES. I know for a fact I had to have been a baby when I played as well likely between the age of 3 or 4. Yes I do in fact have some very distant memories of when I was that young. NES is absolutely the earliest console I can remember first playing.

    1991. The #1 hit was Mariah Carey's "Emotions". Russia abolished the KGB and announced the formation of a free market economy.

    It was probably Gearheads. Mediocre, but had some surprisingly modern game mechanics; it could have been a mobile game from 2013.

    1977, either Coleco "Smurfs Raid On Gargamel's Castle" or some random game you played in cable tv matching numbers to see Atari 2600 quality circus animal graphics.Bonus older brother data: 1965, some random arcade game ir Atari 2600. Bonus earliest computer memory: My father swearing at the Trash 80, I mean TRS 80, as the cassette data drive quit yet again. Fuck, I'm old. Wish I had the cash to have a fancy basement with one of those all in one arcade machines set up there.
