Do you remember what was the first video game that you ever played? I'm pretty old school (well pretty old as well), my first game was actually the original pong in 1972 - 73. I remember watching my parents hook it up to our old black and white TV, and was amazed at the idea of actually playing a game on the TV. Since then I've played countless games, but I can still remember like it was yesterday playing a video game for the first time (even if it was nothing more than batting a little ball back and forth).

I wish I knew the answer to this question but I have no idea. I actually don't know if I played an arcade game first or an atari 2600 game first.

Smb3, zelda, space invaders, Duke Nukem 3D and quake 2. They were the first games I played. My parents were gamers but could never transition to dual analogue or mouse and keyboard

Had an Atari 2600 and an NES and I can't remember if my first game was Asteroids, Pac-Man, Duck Hunt or Gyromite. I do remember breaking off a few of the pins for the controller ports (edit: on Atari 2600) which severely limited directional movement when playing games. Lol I think most games you could only move down or right. Dang kids, why they gotta break everything?

No idea :-(

I'm assuming an arcade game, but might have been an Apple II or NES game...

My first game was either Smurf or Asteroids on Atari 2600 in the early 80s. Loved it. Loved the graphics. Back then you could easily count the pixels. Heck, I have even built a lego model of Pitfall on Atari. It looks pretty close to the video game.

Yes, also something from some ancient console you hook up to the TV. Maybe Space invaders or Super Mario or some other obscure ancient game. I remember you would put yellow cassettes in the console, they were hot merchandise back in the day. We would trade them amongst ourselfs... Or maybe even Tetris on some handheld console.
