The first game I ever played was Super mario All-Stars for the SNES. That game introduced me to birdo (back then, I called her "Yoshi's Girlfreind" because I couldn;t think of a better name, I was like three or something).
but that's after a lot of thinking, I'm not the best rememberer ever. The first game though, I played that I can remember, was my Dad's Lylat Wars for N64. I still remember the first level. I was about 5/6 back then, and my brothers (both younger then me) were in bed. best thing about it was that I beat the Boss on that level! That stupid walking thing was fun to beat up! Then my dad sent me to bed... WAH!
However, the first actual game I ever owned myself was Banjo-Kazooie. I don't remember how old I was, but I loved that game. If I cold get it on Revolution then my brain would be in peace forever... well, maybe not that far.
My Dad was a fan of Nintendo back then, and still was. Eventually, he decided to leave for the Xbox. he still plays Nintendo sometimes, but he's all about Halo. But Nintendo was what i grew up with, and that's where I'll always stay! *weeps*
Oh, and one more thing that you might find of interest. When I played Lylat Wars, the Boss fight was what inspired me to become a video-game designer. That's right, you read that right. And I'm well on my way, so just watch out when I start getting Bosses together and busting moves out on all of ya! I'll drop you like a phat beat (I can not honestly believe I just typed that...)
I'm not entirely sure on this, but I think I was aLttP, and to this day it remains my favourite game. Something about playing a new video game when you are really young just draws you in a lot more than it does now. Ya know what I mean?
If it wasn't aLttP, perhaps it was Super Mario World. One of those two.

My first game was Animal Crossing!
gee, I played that so much. Yeah, Animal Crossing was the first game I ever had and the first game I ever played, and I still have it now, from three Christmases ago.
