    Overall? Pong. On a console? Legend of Zelda on NES. On an arcade machine? Miss Pacman.

    I've played Pong on an 8-bit Atari 2600 circa 1977. That was awesome.

    Until it disintegrated in my hands.

    Computer Space

    The original video game.

    Pong is not the original video game.

    Not on an NES. (I have some GBA game with it.) I've played a lot of older console games, just not on the console.

    Pong I guess... Although I did play other games (more like programs back then)... You had your crappy home pc with no memory, so when you turned it off the game was gone. If you wanted to play again you had to spend a few hours programming it back in :up:

    That's classic right there. My first experience with video games was Super Mario World.
