Shhhhhh, jeez, this is hard to remember. I remember playing games on the sega, stuff like sonic and one that was like sonic but not. And some colouring games.

I remember being addicted to this one game on the PS1 and I used to go to my sister's house to play it on her husbands PS1. I couldn't remember what it was called and then I FOUND IT! The Adventures of Alundra! I loved that game. I don't think I made it very far and I'm pretty sure I got stuck on a riddle. Not my first game, but the first one I have strong memories of.

I'm boring and my parents refused to let me use computer too much or get games or game consoles...I got an old, used Game Boy when I was TEN/ELEVEN and Pokemon Yellow & Blue to play it. And at my friend's sometime around that age, too we played some Pokemon game for the PlayStation...the one with those many minigames that were so much fun 8D Yeah, my game-experience started with Pokemon. And right now I still haven't finished Pokemon Black. *is slow*

No official Pokemon has ever appeared on a game station that was not a Nintendo console! I believe that you meant to say Nintendo64, and the game you were playing sounds like Pokemon Stadium *bricked for being a nerd* But yeah, Pokemon Silver version was one of my all-time favorites back in the day. I haven't gotten my hands on Black or White, nor do I plan to. They'll have to release yet another game for 3DS anyways >_>

Aww if you're a Pokemon fan, you should go for Black and White. D: I've played every Pokemon game released and I think that in terms of story and gameplay, Black/White is the best of the lot. This coming from someone who loved Gold and Silver, as well. XD

Meh, I've always thought that Pokemon games were lacking in story/plot (exceptions are Pokemon Colosseum and XD: Gale of Darkness, but those aren't really in the main series). The triple battle stuff sounds tempting and all, but I'm mad because they didn't release any new Eevee evolutions :( Plus all the new starters look weird. What the heck is Oshawott supposed to be?!?!

I like Black/White because the story is a lot more interesting. Well, I mean, there actually IS a story this time and you interact with the gym leaders and other characters a lot more. I don't know what other Eevee evolutions they can really add at this point. 0_o And pfffft Snivy is awesome, don't say that! Oshawott's an otter, lol.

...then it was that. I only remembered it being an older console xD Sorry 'bout that. Thanks for correcting~ And yeah, Pokemon Stadium sounds about right.

Oshawott I have to stop typing Mijumaru is also a samurai, or it and its evolutions display a samurai's development. And agreed, it has a really nice plot compared to the last few Generation games. It does help that all characters (I mean the PC and his friends/rivals) are more in teenager ages. Graphics are nice, too. But I also agree that a lot Pokemon look odd...D:
But everything's getting darker and more serious...for example some Pokemon and their descriptions.
Do decide yourself, I assure you, you might miss out something really nice if you don't play it, but you decide 8D

The first game I really played was probably super smash bros on the n64. that'd be what really got me into gaming. course Now I'm part of the pc gaming master race, so eh. As for pokemon B/W. I just got soulsilver (is that one word?) and I don't play on my ds enough to justify buying another one

It scares me that I'm 99% sure I know, and have played, the football game you are talking about. >.<;

So many young gamers... Mine was Adventure on the Atari 2600. I still have my old Atari and Odyssey 3000. Yeah. Find someone who knows what one of those old boxes is.

One christmas I got "Where in Time is Carmen Sandiego" and "Myst" as presents. I can't remember any further back than that.

The first game I ever played was Ernie's Big Splash for DOS. Good times.

My first console game was Duck Hunt for the SNES. It was the first in a series of games that helped me realize that my reflexes and hand-eye coordination will never be good. It's also the only FPS I've ever enjoyed, despite the fact that my mother kept schooling me on the skeet shooting course.

My first games were a bunch of educational stuff for the Commodore 64. I can't remember any earlier than that.
