Kind of an awkward title... I don't remember a topic like this being made, sooooo: for all the systems you own/have owned, what were your first games for it? I figured this would be a fond way to look back on things
However, I have a terrible memory for alot of it for when I really started collecting games, so it'll be hard for me to remember :p My only rule
: don't count games that came bundled WITH the system
. It has to be the first game you actually went out and bought for it (or received as a gift, etc). And so the whole topic isn't just lists, try and write up WHY you chose that game and/or some fond memories involving it
Imma start (and try and go in chronological order of the systems I own):
I HAVE NO IDEA... I was 7 when my family got its first PC... Between all the games on floppy and CD-ROM, I do not remember at all which was my first >_> My first 'gaming machine' though. Although I did borrow my cousins' NES and Genesis for a few years, they were just long borrows and never mine, thus I don't count them.
Donkey Kong. It was a Christmas present, and I did then and still do suck at puzzle-platformers like that :/ I did enjoy watching my older cousin beat the whole thing over the holidays so I guess that was fun!
Pokemon Gold and Silver. Why else did I need to upgrade? :p For the longest time these were the ONLY ones I got for the system and I got them both at the same time. I remember hearing how they sold out in Japan in a magazine, so needed BOTH.
I bought a PS2 actually for PS1 games too. I heard how FFVII was the bestest thing evaaaaa so, when they still had them in Walmart, I picked it up a month before I got my PS2.
Trying to remember... This is going back to when I only had a small basket of PS2 games :p I think it was FFX, because I remember renting it on a friend's system and I HAD TO HAVE IT!!! The graphics blew my mind then :p
Same thing with PS2, didn't own a GBA, so I got a DS to play both. My first overall game for DS in fact, was FFIV Advance. It was that or Tales of Phantasia that was still sold at Walmart. I knew nothing of Tales at the time, so went with IV since I heard it was also supppaa amazingu!! Wish I got Tales too, despite hearing how the translating was :p (Still need to beat IV... don't wanna grind...)
...ok, trying to remember... It was either Pokemon Diamond and Pearl, or Elite Beat Agents... or was it Warioware Touched! ? I can't remember...
Same thing, never owned one, got a Wii and then bought GC games for it. Lemme think here... I think it was Sonic Adventure DX, since I always wanted to play it but never had a Dreamcast.
Since I'm NOT COUNTING Wii Sports, it would be Sonic and the Secret Rings... Blind buy, before I realized that Sonic games always go down to $20 >_>
Sonic the Hedgehog. Hmm yeah... Think I was stuck on it somewhere and never played it since, but I will attempt it again somehow!
I got it as a bundle where I chose a game, Daxter, but not counting that. I either bought Me and My Katamari or Crisis Core first for it.
Dead Rising. I got the system, and still use it only for exclusives.
Super Street Fighter IV. Well, when you don`t have a good launch lineup...
??? Won't be shipped till next week, but I'm undecided what my first game for it will be.
So yes, my first games consist of Pokemon, Sonic, and FF mainly :p
