        Either Tetris or Super Team Games.

          Same as Greatshow: Pong, Pitfall, then River Raid in that order. That's on console; the first arcade game I recall playing was a motorcycle game where you jumped off a ramp. It was black and white, the objects were all static except for the motorcycle rider and his bike, and the controls were a set of handlebars with brake and throttle. That game, last time I checked, is still operational at the shooting gallery in Ocean Park, WA.

                  A game for the PS1. Don't know the name, but that's the firs time I ever played a video game was on that system.

                          Pokemon Blue on my cousin's gameboy color. I was sort of helping him out he was only six at the time so I sort of helped him out with the game.

                            I think it was Driver 2, at least is Driver 2 the oldest game I remember playing myself, it was in 2000.

                              1. Pong at my Uncle's house circa 1979.
                              2. A hand-held, battery-powered game like Galaga around the same year. Graphics and gameplay were primitive but that didn't stop me from playing it every day.
                              3. Pitfall on the 2600.
                              4. After that it's all a blur.

                                Super Mario Bros. 3 and still play it to this day. Probably my favorite game of all time.

                                    I would say Coleco Telstar Arcade in early 1978 at my next door neighbor's house. It was a triangular shaped console on top of which you would mount an interchangeable triangular game cartridge. The game controls were mounted on each side of the console, which included a steering wheel, gear shift, light gun and paddles.

                                        I've always thought that was a pretty cool system. It was cool that each cartridge contained 4 games, as opposed to 1 or 2 games most other game cartridges had. Of coarse, since I've never owned a Telstar Arcade, I don't know how much those cartridges sold for back in 1977-1978 and if 4 games per cartridge was considered a "bargain".

                                          I don't know if it's the first game I played but Space Invaders for Atari 2600 is the first game I remember playing religiously.
