What was the first computer game you owned

Mine was Operation Market Garden on the Spectrum.
Turn based strategy game. When I first played it I could never win, by the time I stopped I could destroy every German unit and only lose 3 of mine.

Alien Trilogy on the Play station 1. A great FPS if my memory serves,for its day I might add.

When the first game somebody has owned was a FPS?

There was us with out blocky sprites and basic (yet fantastic) music - and the first game they experienced was a world away from the 2D/text-based world that we grew up in.

As for the question, hard to say really - Roland on the Ropes? Electro Freddy? Wizards Lair? The Hobbit? They all came with my first computer (Amstrad CPC 464 fact fans!) so they were all in essence among my 'first games owned'

Anyone remember, or even head of them?

I remember that, fond memories. Makes you wonder at just how far the silicon has come! I know you are a big Doom original fan, but suspect you are too young to recall what happened when that game hit the market.

Total and utter amazement, it brought networks and all work to a complete standstill.

Before that, we were happy with text based games, and little platform offerings, games that would run on x286,386 or, if you had the money a 486DX!

my first pc game was Halflife.

This, after I had sworn never to have a game on my PC. All downhill after that.
