I first played on the SNES, but the first console I owned was the N64. That's when I really started gaming.

Arcade games aside, I think the first time I started gaming was with my Gameboy pocket. From there I upgraded to Gameboy color and a hand-me-down SNES. Probably mid 90's. Come 2000 I got a computer and lost all hope of not becoming a computer nerd.

I started out gaming on some stone age Atari Computer and the NES.

And by Stone Age I mean playing stuff like Space Invaders, Montezuma's Revenge, Gauntlet, Ultima Series, Defender of the Crown, etc.

I grew up with an SNES and N64, as others have, but I didn't really start gaming with any sense of taste until WoW I downloaded Steam, bought the Orange Box, and started reading the Escapist like a prosthetic Bible.

I played my first games on the SNES at the age of four all the way back in 1995. However this was more of a casual playing just to kill time. I didnt truly get into gaming until the late N64/ early gamecube era.

I started off with the NES with Duck Hunt, Super Mario Bros and some other games, but I forgot what they were. I don't know how old I was when I first started gaming.

I don't know what my very first taste of video games was, it could've been on one of my neighbors computers when I was 3, or it might have been my dad's Atari; but my first system was an NES. I know it's not the beginning of video games but I still feel like I can refer to the majority of people here as "kids".

In chronological order: NES, PC, SNES, Genesis, n64, playstation, ps2, xbox 360, wii.

My earliest gaming experience is the sheer amazement of Super Mario Bros.
