    Haha I miss Roadrash. Definitely a classic. However, the first game I remeber playing on a computer is Doom!

    Ah, I do love those nostalgic threads, a wink back to my childhood

    For me, the first games were on a very old Atari computer and on a Pravetz (Bulgarian computer manifacturer). I had tons of diskettes with crazy games like a ninja on a motorbike, fighting russian spacemen (yah rly!)

    On my first Pentium I think I started off with Revolt and Death Race, ah the good ol' days

    It was one of the free games we got with the Amstrad 464 - it was most likely:

    My first video game was pong. Cutting edge stuff back then. I can still remember going into Target with my parents and seeing it there, and being amazed by it. We had one by Christmas, if memory serves me correct.

    My first? Oregon Trail I do believe. Though the Atari brought us things like Pong as well, but I seem to recall that OT was my first actual 'computer game'

    Surprising how many of you had colour graphics on your first PC game. Maybe I really am old!

    From what I can remember:

    Pong, spaceinvaders (Cant remember what pc..)
    Skifree (Windows 3.1)
    Pinball, Doom, Wolfenstein (Windows 95)
    Road Rash, Earthworm Jim, Rollercoaster Tycoon, Zoo Tycoon (Windows 98)
    XP onwards.. erm too many to list!

    First game on a computer -- Kingdom of Kroz -- 1989. Text-mode. Back when DOS was only an acronym for Disk Operating System.

    Don't even remember the premise any more. I'm not really a gaming person. I remember playing Descent on an old (new) Pentium 75MHz when I was maybe 12.
