Do emulators count? Because I have emulated games for the BBC Microcomputer which was 5 years older (kinda) than the NES and SNES.

As one who has been a PC gamer his whole life (although my parents eventually got us a Wii) I would have to say Roller Coaster Tycoon.

Oldest game I own, age wise, is Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (would say Pokemon Red, but original died years ago so I had that replaced).

Oldest game I own, game age wise, is any of my Atari 2600 games.

No one read my 2 page post about history of games. Isn't this a thread about the history of games and discussing old games? Or do we just post a quick game name and leave?

Oh well, I guess with all these perks for posting a lot and getting "experience" people just quickly jump around and post stuff like the word "bump" repeatedly and other quick posts that are just barely relevant enough to be accepted by the moderation.

Interesting. Ok then, next time ill just write a 2 word response or nothing at all.

Ah, this one isn't gonna be hard for a 30 year old lifelong gamer....

Lets see, when I was 7 years old, I was using my parents' Gateway tower desktop computer with 256mb hard drive, .486/66hz processor with a 28.8k baud dialup modem.....I think we had less than 1 mb of ram in there and ran Windows 3.1 / MS DOS. We had a 3.5" hard disk drive and the 5.25" floppy disks - which just sounds wrong to say in todays world. LOL

The coolest game's I had on there were:
1. Thexder
2. Wolfenstein-3D
3. Doom
4. Number crunchers on the Apple II-e (game we used to play at school)
5. Oregon Trail (original) game we used to play at school also

Thexder - I don't remember much about this game but I do remember playing it as early as 1991 when I was like 8 years old. You were a robot and you could walk around and then jump somehow and turn into a flying airplane robot. It was very simple and involved just space bar to jump, enter to shoot and arrow keys. The sound was not made through speakers, it was designed to use the internal speakers that give you those beep messages now....there were all different pitches of sound produced through that internal speaker to make the games' music.

I had also played the original Wolfenstein 3-D on 3.5" floppy disk, which gave way to Doom as well. I had both of these on disk drives, way before the CD-ROM drive (cup holder for some back then) ever came out! I remember the secret world in Wolfenstein 3-D, its like a purple world. I forget how you got there but it was fun. Then you go on to kill Hitler at the end with your Gatling gun! LOL good times

As for all systems though, I had an NES when I was 6 years old, back in 1989, and I had played Mario Brothers and Duck Hunt with religious-like dedication and mastered the games as a kid. I remember back in the early 90s when cheating was considering taking the duck hunt gun and touching the screen with it and shooting the ducks from point blank range. Ohh, the simple days.

While I do admit that I was on the edge of the first generation of gamers and our games were super simple and easy to play, I have to remind you that they were difficult back then, not only for us to play but also for the programmers to come up with and design.

It may seem simple and stupid to see those games and their bad controls, but the fact that you could even pretend to do some of those things while even having the most basic controls was amazing and a breakthrough!

Games like Grand Theft Auto 5 didn't happen over night! You should see the original that we used to play on Windows 95, with a top down/birds eye view, no option to change it, and very simplistic SNES level graphics. Still amazing gameplay experience though.

Don't take for granted the amazing technology we have today to provide games like Minecraft, Starcraft 2, WoW, Diablo 3, SimCity series and some of the other great simulation and action games out there.

Last thing I want to say is a short story of when I was young.....

When I was most of your guys' age, like 9-14 years old, the original Sim City had just came out, so for any of us that enjoyed Legos or creating things and building things, we were limited to placing square boxes the way the game let us, and were forced to make cities with very limited 2-D variation.

Before Sim City came out, I had the heart of a Minecrafter in me, all the way back in 1992. I would open up paintbrush on MS Windows 3.1, and use the simple colors/shapes to design cities from a birds eye view.

I would splash the background black, make grey lines 13 pixels wide and make smaller lines in the center of them yellow and 3 pixels wide, and make them into roads....and draw squares on each side as houses, and make drive ways and trees and pools and fences and even tried to make businesses and parks and stuff.....

Im sure if I could recover that old computer thats probably in a garbage dump somewhere not even recycled, that I'd feel pretty stupid to see the simple designs and how bad it probably looked, but the imagination is what took my mind away from the blocky 2-D 64 color grid, and made it into a thriving world of my own imagination.....

Thats why I find it very easy to defend Minecraft to people who say the graphics suck or there is nothing to do in it, or there is no point, or it gets old fast....

This game has been going on for thousands of years in the minds of humans and will continue as long as we exist.. This game is called creation. Minecraft is only 1 instance of this, it allows for specific types of creation within a limited set of rules/options.

Enjoy it guys. I can't wait to see what Microsoft does with it! If you like building and want to be a part of a city creation server, please join up!

I've played some pretty old games, in the NES and SNES glory days, but alas, I do not own them.

I suppose Magic: The Gathering would be the oldest game, because that came out in 1993. It's still a huge thing, which is awesome.

Pong was the first hit for video games, but several come before it like spacewar, and pong was a direct copy of tennis for 2. Also computer space was essentially a copy of spacewar, not only are they both older; computer space was created by bushnell and dabne. those are the fellows that created atari.
The oldest game that I am currently in possession of is colossal cave! So many hrs looking at test and imagining what it might look like.

My parents used to own quite a library of old Atari games, as well as a few other games for systems whose names currently escape me.

But as for what I currently own, I'm gonna have to ditto the Pokemon Yellow.
