Jeez... hard for me to remember... I would think it would have to be one of my Atari games, frogger, night drivin....

I also played some Oregon Trail on the Apple II. You have to use a 5 1/2 disk to play

As for my first Windows game... I think its probably the original Test Drive

Atari and the Original NES are still to this day the only consoles I have ever owned

hehe I found pictures of king’s quest 1 and 2

KQ1


KQ2 You can swim in this one


I remember I couldn’t complete the game due to the fact that you had to type in "open mailbox" or "give mail to old lady"

No kidding! Man, I hated that game..


I think for me it was Pathways Into Darkness, a FPS type, hard as hell too. Bungie made it and I recal it had that annoying copy-protection crap like "What is the third word of the 4th sentance on paragraph 2 of Page 5 of your game manual." That was painful..

Kings Quest 1 was awesome! I also played alot of Kings Quest 5 and 6. Classic Sierra was awesome. Kings Quest 6 is still one of my all time favorite games.

Hmm, let me think. Would probably have to be Oregon trail or Word Muncher on a Apple II. This was at school back in the day. Both games being played off of 5 1/2 inch floppies of course.
