First games of specific genres you've ever played?
What are your first video games ever played, as far as you can remember?
For me it's
First side-scroller (also first game ever) - Rayman (God, I miss Rayman)
First 3D platformer - Crash Bandicoot (Everybody's playing it, so why not?)
First adventure game - Freddi Fish 3: The Case of the Stolen Conch Shell (I used Walkthroughs throughout the whole game)
First first-person shooter - Half Life (I call Headcrabs Bean-turkeys)
First RPG - Pokemon Red (The day I first got a hand-held is the day I stopped complained during long drives in a car)
First Survival Horror - Resident Evil 1 (I had nightmares because of this)
First game with violence - Oddworld; Abe's Oddysey ("What do you mean you can't shoot stuff in this game?!" - Friend of mine)
First game ever ended - Freddi Fish 3: The Case of the Stolen Conch Shell (Walkthroughs)
First game to end in multiplayer mode - Legend of Mana (With my cousin, all weekend)
First game to like so much that I wait for the next game the developers are making - Jak and Daxter (I didn't really pay attention to developers before then)
First side-scroller - Commander Keen. (The first one, not the more famous Keen 4)
First 3D platformer - Bug! on the Saturn.
First adventure game - Leisure Suit Larry. (Much to my family's shock and chagrin)
First first-person shooter - Wolfenstein 3D.
First RPG - Honestly can't remember.
First Survival Horror - Alone In The Dark. (Not the fancy new one)
First game with violence - Wolfenstein 3D.
First game ever ended - Wolfenstein 3D.
First game to end in multiplayer mode - Mario 3.
First game to like so much that I wait for the next game the developers are making - Commander Keen. (I was a huge Apogee fan... still am)
First platformer: not sure which was the first, but Henry's House was one of my favourites in my early gaming career. Even before I got hold of a machine of my own. Played it a lot on a borrowed C64.
First racing game: Outrun on the C64, maybe. Again not sure. It's been so long now, and details are fading fast.
First adventure game: This one I'm pretty sure of - Murder on the Mississippi (C64). Great sherlock holmes style detective game. Didn't get very far though, and I kept dying and had no idea how to save.
First shoot'em up: even more unclear. Airwolf (C64) perhaps.
First arcade/misc: Space Taxi (C64), most likely not my first, but certainly one of my favourites.
First coin-op: Bubble Bobble (C64). Played it a LOT, one of my favourites of all time even today.
First fighting game: Yie Ar Kung Fu (C64). I still enjoy this. I also like the the clone by Team 17, called Full Contact.
First soccer game: that's easy - International Soccer (the one by Commodore on C64). I remember playing it to death, and then some. I used the cartridge version.
First point'n'click: Zak McKracken (C64). Playing it with a joystick wasn't as good as when I got it on the Amiga, but I absolutely loved the game.
First strategy game: Defender of the Crown (C64)
First ever completed game: I'm 99% sure that The Secret of Monkey Island is the first game I ever completed.
First ever RPG: Bard's Tale or Times of Lore on the C64.
First ever JRPG: Final Fantasy VII. Still among my favourite games ever.
First ever stealth game: Metal Gear Solid I think. Not sure if I played Tenchu first, or if playing MGS sparked my interest in Tenchu when I heard what kind of game it was.
First ever FPS: Doom or Rise of the Triad. Though I didn't have my own PC - I was still hoping for an Amiga comeback.
First side-scroller, first platformer, first game to finish and overall first game - Sonic the Hedgehog 2
First 3D platformer - Banjo-Kazooie (Took me a while to get my own N64, but I constantly went to Toys-R-Us just to leech off of this game. I enjoyed it that much.)
First adventure game - Are You Afraid of the Dark: The Tale of Orpheo's Curse
First first-person shooter - Descent
First RPG - Pokémon Blue
First Survival Horror - Not sure... Maybe Jurassic Park arcade, but considering that one was a popular game in Chuck E Cheese's where there were children, it might not count as a horror. If not, maybe House of the Dead.
First game with violence - Sanitarium (It took me a while for my mom to let me, so I was 9 and it was an awesome, awesome underrated game and didn't traumatize me at all, surprisingly. Even with that town of deformed children!)
First game to end in multiplayer mode - Battletoads. (Thankfully, the Genesis version!)
First game to like so much that I waited for the next game the developers were making - Banjo-Kazooie (Because of the fact that I was sure there would be a sequel due to the ending of the first game, waiting around for this was nuts. There was even a fan-site I got involved with containing fans that were equally going as nuts I was.)
First simulation and strategy game - SimCity 2
First online game - Worms 2
First fighter - Power Rangers (Genesis)
First action game and beat-em-up - Batman Returns (SNES)
First arcade game - Kangaroo
First edutainment - Get Ready for School, Charlie Brown (might just count as an early childhood game only, otherwise it's Oregon Trail)
First puzzle game - Tetris
First sports game - NHLPA Hockey '93
First rhythm game - Parappa the Rapper
First racing game - Mario Kart
First MMO - City of Heroes (Yes I was late and also only leeched off of my friend for a while to decided if I liked it, and I didn't.)
I doubt I remember some of these. Adventure was my first genre, but after that I don't know if the first one was the original Maniac Mansion or Secret of Monkey Island(I played a really large range of older and newer adventure games when I was introduced.
I was introduced to some genres far later. My first shooter was DOOM, and I didn't get another one until Goldeneye 007.
My first platformer was Sonic the Hedgehog.
3D Platformer: Super Mario 64.
Racing: Mario Kart, followed by Mario Kart 64. Never have been really big on the racing genre.
My first Japanese RPG was Poke'mon Yellow. Not sure if Western RPGs came earlier or later, it's one of those situations where I grabbed a lot of newer and older ones at the same time so the timeline is impossible to work out, between my unreliable memory and release dates not mattering.
