The first game console I received was the NES Action set in Christmas of 1988. Of course it was packed in with Super Mario Bros/Duck Hunt. The first game I got that wasn't packed in with it was Legend of Zelda and Super Mario Bros 2. Also received in Christmas '88

I bought my NES in 88 also. Zelda was the greatest thing ever!

My first console was a Coleco Gemini in '83. It came with the pack-ins Donkey Kong and Mouse Trap. My earliest gaming all blurs together at this point, but if I had to guess, my first game after that was either Pac-Man or Megamania.

My first game console was the 5200 SuperSystem.  I got three games at the same time with the system.  They were Galaxian, Space Invaders, and Missile Command.  All of these were Christmas gifts and I don't remember which one I unwrapped first.

First console was the 5200 and other than the pac man pack in, I got Kangaroo.  Before that was only the timex sinclair and Commodore 64, but those were my dad's.  I assume that is why they got me the 5200 so he could have his commodore back.


I actually got the Timex before the 5200...but we never could get the included programs to load.  I think I got Grimm's Fairy Tales to load one time but that was it.  Pac-Man didn't come with my 5200...that arrived a later.  Kangaroo is a good game for the system.
