    I think the very first ARCADE video game I recall playing was I believe Space Invaders in 1980, at a snack bar that opened next door to the sportswear shop where my mom worked at the time. I remember when the snack bar first got the game, my mom was working and when she heard the "explosions" (player's ship being blown up), she thought it was a thunderstorm approaching...until she found out the "thunder" was from the game next door! Obviously, that strip mall wasn't very soundproof!

        I believe the first game on a home console was Super Mario Bros. and the first arcade game was Donkey Kong...I think.

          Fisher Price I Can Remember on NES, I was 4.
          The fire truck game? Actually, it's very likely that was my first.

            It was probably Frog Bog on Mattel Intellivision when I was 4.

              The earliest game I can remember was Star Wars Pod Racers for the Nintendo 64.

                Super Mario Bros. on the NES is the first game I can vividly remember playing. But the real answer is probably Pac-Man or Donkey Kong for the Atari, as we had an Atari before NES. But I was so young then I just have vague memories of it.

                                    Yeesh. I don't know. Likely something for the Atari 2600 or a really low powered computer.

                                      Arcade games I think it was either Space Invaders/Defender or a bit later with Galaga. Can't recall exactly.

                                      Atari 2600 with Combat which came with the console.
