30 Day Video Game Challenge! Day 1: Your First Game

I was feeling a little guilty that I haven’t been dedicating as much time to my blog as I would like recently, mainly because I haven’t had a lot of time to play any games therefore not giving me much to blog about, this is due to a recent job change, moving house, an exam… Lots of different things that all seem to be coming to a head in June and July. I’ve been reading through the wonderful The Shameful Narcissists’ video game challenge, and I’ve seen it dotted around some other gamer blogs too, so considering my current lack of inspiration and time I thought I’d give it a go!

Day 1 – Your First Video Game

I am not 100% sure what my very first video game was but if I had to guess then I would say it was Pokémon Yellow as it’s the first one I remember playing. It came out when I was 5 so the timescale lines up. I had a Gameboy Color that matched the Pokémon Yellow cartridge and I still have them both! While the game very occasionally freezes now, and I have to take out the cartridge and blow on it they both still work! Not bad for 18 years old.

I never finished Pokémon Yellow, maybe it’s time for a new game?

What was your first game? Did anyone else play Pokémon Yellow?

  1. It’s really hard to determine what my first game was being so long ago. The earliest I remember playing was Galaxian on my dad’s BBC but there could have been others before that. Pokemon is a hell of a good series to start a gaming lifetime on!

    1. It’s a difficult question really. I suppose the best you can do is an educated guess. Pokemon was definitely a great place to start, I loved the TV show when I was younger as well, I was a huge fan. Still a fan! Getting a bit overwhelmed by how many there are though now!
      Was galaxian an arcade game? Must admit to a bit of a gap in my skills with arcade games.

  2. Pokémon Yellow was my first handheld game! I loved it and I still have my working copy of it 🙂 My very first game was the running Taz-mania game on the SNES when I was 5 (not to be confused with the Taz-mania for the Sega Genesis, which was a 2D platformer).

      1. Thank you! I’ve been saving up for it for a few years now. It’s a dream come true to finally see it on my arm 🙂
