In anycase they were school educational story games like the fox and grapes for the mac so I dont think they count. But yep prince of persia for the mac was my first game on a computer.

It was on the Commodore 64, I do remember that. But what exactly the game was I couldn't tell you because I had so many.

On a pc it was the text based game 'Adventure' on a Ti99/4A, circa 1984. The second was River Raid on an Apple.

If I remember it correctly, my first game was some kind of a jumping game on an Atari 2600. The year was 1979.

Pirate Adventure, I think. It was a text based adventure. I think Zork was the first PC game I played. It was another text based adventure.
