Little something about gaming background.

Simply thought flinging this out in the air.
What was your first game and platform?


Some light research reveals that mine was either Dune or Dune II, on what apparently was a SEGA Genesis/Mega Drive

Alongside that I also had Street Racer and Streets of Rage 2

I mostly remember the good game music and quite a few controllers that had a terminal appointment with the wall.

LOL

The first computer game I played was Pong on a special made bar table (screen under glass, worked to hold drinks and protect the game).

Before that, pinball (which I miss).

Pinball is still around, true it is not as it was in the days of yore. There is also Xonix, which has also had several versions, I was quite fond of the one that showed them pleasant pictures when you managed to get all of the screen under your control for a while


As to games on a actual computer, I think was something similar to this
