I started at the end of the N64's span and really got into it with the Wind Waker and the Ocarina of Time's Master Quest.

Atari 7800 was the first system my dad brought home when I was 5. I still have all the games for it.

NES.
Metroid.
Your post is both concise and awesome. That game was also my intro to "holy crap, the screen can go left, right, up and down." back when I was used to the likes of robotron, joust, and centipede.

Memories...

I didn't get into gaming right away, so my first console was actually the xbox... unfortunately only a couple of months before the xbox 360 was announced...

My first console was the N64, but I had sampled the good life beforehand when I played on the SNES and the Sega Genesis.

NES was my first system. I wasn't allowed to play it until I stopped using the controller wire as a chew toy --I was a teething baby at the time.

Super Mario, Contra and other games on SNES. Then a year or two later (1995) I got my first PC and it was awesome. I still have the first game pack I got, all from 7Team.

I am from my generation, obviously.

Anyway, the first console I ever played on was the (S)NES.. So.. That era? I started with Secret of Mana and the original Super Mario.

Well my first VG was when I was 3 but I got my PS2 in 2000 when I was 4 and played games such as KH, FFX and Dark Cloud...
I was an RPG nut and still am today.

My first was a PC technically (first game was Star Wars: X-Wing). The N64 was my first console, tho.

Around the time of the NES/SNES and the X86 PCs. Those were the good old days...

I think I got into gaming at the upturn of PC gaming. Sure, I had the Playstation and the N64, but the computer was where it was at.. Not to mention my family had LAN parties out the ass.

We played Unreal Tournament, Starcraft, Total annihilation, Myst, Oddworld... All kinds of games.. Things were going good.

I really miss the 90's-2000's...

I started with minesweeper on Windows '95. My parents noticed and made the mistake of getting me a GameBoy Color with a few popular games, the most notable of which was Pokemon Gold, which then proceeded to consume all of my time for the next few months. Soon I had a PS2, and I spent hours playing an old Robot Wars game, SSX Tricky and the crappy PS2 port of Age of Empires 2.

I think I started fairly late.

Atari 2600 in the very early 80's before getting a Spectrum and moved up with every next market launch of gaming platforms since then. Think I must have owned nearly every console there was (except Atari Jaguar as i'm not an idiot) going throughout the years.
Been gaming now for about 30 years and still going strong :D
