What was the game that got you hooked on video games?

Mine was Wolf 3D. I was only probably like 7 years old. My dads friend used to always help us with computer problems and he brought it over on a 3.5 floppy. I played for hours and hours. 16 years later and I still play it on my iPhone. I've been a closet nerd/party animal all of my life. What was your first true game?

Original Mario Bros. when my dad bought a NES and showed it to me for the for the first time. i was in awe at how awesome i was,then he bought the SNES and from then on ive been playing games. Now i just stick to PC games because we are the master race unlike console peasants.

Probably Wolf 3D as well. That game is amazing.

Original Mario Bros. too.

Umm, I would say I broke my cherry with Roller Coaster Tycoon when I was younger but that wasn't what got me hooked. When I was in like 4th grade my dad started play Unreal Tournament 2004 a lot and, with him, so did I. Between him, my brother and myself, we probably put almost 10k hours into that game. We still play it time to time and I have numerous IRL friends from that game now.

Gaming period? I have no clue. But online gaming for me was Socom 1 for the Ps2. Back then, I could play one game and one game only and be happy with it. Now I need more than one game in my collection otherwise I get bored

Hmm. Hard to say. The period in my life where I first discovered video games and got really hooked isn't really something I can recall clearly.

It's somewhere between Duck Hunt, Punch-Out, Metroid, Castlevania II: Simon's Quest, and Missle Command. Being as Simon's Quest was the first game that I ever actually sat down long enough to focus on completing and enjoyed the limited story, gathering responses from all of the townsfolk, collecting every weapon in the game, I'm going to say that really fueled my love for games. Also the first game I ever learned how to exploit, waiting until Dracula moved to the center platform and nailing him over and over again with a huge stash of Sacred Flame making him incapable of moving while I whipped his ***.

Hell, I beat that when I was like 4. That game pretty much taught me how to read. And to never trust idiot townsfolk.

*EDIT* As far as shooters go, of course Goldeneye. But my online gaming love didn't start until I snagged Red Faction back in '01. I don't think I've ever loved a game as much as I did RF.

*EDIT EDIT* FFVII gets notable mention too. One of the first games I bought with my PS1, and I still play it to this day. I probably would have never touched an RPG until I played that.

Super Mario All Stars cart for my SNES, more specifically Super Mario 3 and Super Mario world. Since my mom and dad had an Atari 2600 and NES since before I was born I had been gaming on those since I was competent enough to hold the controller and figure out what was going on, but I was never "hooked" until we got the SNES and that Mario All Stars cart.
