In case they change the question again, the question I am answering is:
What was the first video or computer game you ever played? Did you love it or hate it, and why?
I can't remember, to be honest. It was likely to be a text adventure on the PET at school or my brother's ZX81. Maybe Chuckie Egg and/or Ghostbusters on bro's ZX Spectrum (or my at-the-time boyfriend's speckie). Games that have stuck with me over the years and that I still greatly miss are:
- Tempest in the arcade at the fair.
- Ghostbusters and Chuckie egg on the Spectrum.
- Tetris, of course, first on a Mac SE at Teddington National Physical Laboratory where I did my MSc placement.
- Dragon's Revenge on the Sega Megadrive.
- All of the Final Fantasy franchise from number I to number VII on the Playstation (One before it was called that).
- Ultima V on the PC/DOS.
- Ultima Online on the PC/Windows.
- Shanghai Mah Jong (the real game not just the tiles solitaire) on the mac (OS9?).
- Leisure Suit Larry on some PCs at Kingston Poly.
Any games that I played that I hated I would have only played once and so I have definitely forgotten them.
ETA: I have just remembered! Pong!
