Default First Video Game?

My first game I ever played was duck hunt; and to this day, I can get to round 30, with a perfect score on each round previously. What was your first video game?

The first PC game I ever played, as far as I can remember, was Evolution.

The first handheld video game I played was a football game where the players and the football were represented only as lit dots on a grid of a few dozen red LEDs. There was no LCD screen; the grid of lights was all that represented the field. Each LED (or pixel, if you want to think of them that way) was a single position in the field. If it was lit, there was a player there. If the football was at a spot, I think the LED for that position blinked. Since all the LEDs were the same color, I remember it being kind of confusing. And no, I'm not making that up. It really was that primitive. =P

I think SMB/Duckhunt was the first cartridge-based game I played.

Still have it too. Still works. Lost the cover to the battery compartment though, and I don't remember ever seeing the box before, probably got thrown out when I was really young.

Pong. Then Donkey Kong, Popeye and when I finally got a NES, it was Final Fantasy, my favorite of all time.<img src=smilies/magbiggrin.gif>

I don't remember, but it probably would have been something on the Atari 2600. Perhaps Defender.

I'm not sure....first I can actualy remember playing though is either Shark! Shark! for the Intellivision, or the original Legend of Zelda. I don't remember a whole lot from when I was really young so I'm not sure.
