Hello!

Wow, it's great to read all of your gaming histories!

Ermm, let me think......

1. A tiny machine given to me by my Auntie that had Pong and Space Invaders on it. (??)
2. Dragon 32
3. NES (Missed a lot of school playing on this... :P)
3. An Amstrad computer that had green and black graphics (remember trying to play snooker on it...didn't quite work because the of the lack of colour, but I loved it anyway!)
4. Amiga CD32
5. Sega Game Gear
6. Nintendo 64
7. Nintendo GameCube
8. Xbox
9. Nintendo DS Lite
10. Nintendo Wii

Aww, yep, I remember playing Chuckie Egg round at a friends house  ;D I think we had the Beeb in Primary school...

Cheers!

Kat

With all the talk of Combat on the previous page, I just had to join this discussion :)

My first gaming experience was with a hand-me-down Atari 2600 with Combat, Donkey Kong, Video Chess, and a few others.

When the power supply blew up, my mum got rid of it, but I kept the games, and bought a used Jr system many years later.
I still have those same cartridges, plus over 140 more.
Retroman!

I was a big fan of pitfall on the atari 2600. was combat that plane / tank fighting game you could go off the top of the screen to appear on the bottom? I used to love that game too

Pitfall on the atari is pure genius, to be honest the Atari 2600 is an amazing machine considering its age! A true marvel!
I was playing Adventure again the other day (the 2600 version) on my Atari 7800 . . . i loved it still!!!

Pong . . . the best, well, the only!  :'(

Seriously a superb game in its day! was it really around 1978? Wow! I was 8!!! 30 years ago - hard to believe!
But then again the Atari 2600 is around a similar sort of age!! and Space Invaders on that was superb!!!!
