Hmmmm I thought Zork was PC... weird.. if it was on 64 I wish id known about it at the time lol.
Dork (sorry, Zork) was ported to many platforms, inc. C64. I know it was available on the Amstrad CPC series as well, along with some other Infocom titles like The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. (Anyone remember what a pain in the arse it was to get the babelfish before the domestobot did? )
.. you are carrying:
My first game was Super Mario Bros on NES then followed by Galaga
It was Miner 2049er on C64. When I bought C64 three games came with it. Miner, Spike's Peak and Galaga.
I miss those days.
super mario bros. and contra...lol
That would be ATARI for me.
JetPac on the ZX Spectrum
It's been a pretty long time, but I believe it was pong on a brownish console thing. After that I am not sure, but I know I had an Atari 2600, and LOVED QBert. I spent almost every Saturday in the arcade. That was when the arcade offered you much better games than you had at home, and it was only 25 cents per play. Although, there were expensive games like Dragon's Lair that cost 50 cents.
I remember those days.. in Aus, it was 20c a game. I flatly refused to play Dragon's Lair, 'cos although the LaserDisc graphics technology was "awesome" for the day, I couldn't justify spending $1 a pop when that'd get me five games of Battlezone, or Asteroids, or Defender, or Galaga, or...
Of course, Galaxy Force II was outrageous at $2 a game when it came out. But somehow, the motorised cockpit made that one justifiable...
Airwolf on the C64, a helicopter that flies missions underground, at the time it didn't seem odd at all
I remember when I was a kid I usually play my sister's Tetris game.
tennis on the first Nintendo system, could have been atari (not sure)when it was only two sticks and a ball. and asteroids on commodore 64.
My first game I remember was Galaxian at the arcades and Qix. I remember we used to go to the city on friday nights and we were given a handful of 20's. It inspired me in later life to get an arcade machine collecting addiction. Sadly most of which I had to sell a few years back to make room for kids. I do however still have a Star Wars Cockpit hiding in my shed
voodoo castle on the commodore vic20..it was a text based game.
i was about 4 at the time i believe, and always managed to get stuck in a chimney as i remember it lol.
My first game that I played beside from ATARI was Pinball. I really got hooked in that game every time we go out my parents always let me play that game.
Pong on the ATARI against my older brother lol, and I remember how cool I thought it was. lol. Mind you I was only a little tacker at that stage
I cant remember exactly but it would have been a C64 game as that was the first system we had... dare i say... the best system ever! I dare say that it would have been Frantic Freddy or Cohen's Tower as i loved those two games
Deimox, that's cool! I remember playing that. Colour vector gfx and all...
Hmmmmm....failing memory here but I believe it was "Commandos" for Atari 2600....and the first PC game would have been when I got my Pentium90 and it was either "Decent" or the DOOM 9 level demo
