    Legit no joke, Superman 64.
    I got that, smash brothers, and paper Mario for Christmas, and I booted up Superman first.
    Couldn't beat the singleplayer, heck couldn't beat the first level. The multiplayer was somewhat fun to play, but paper Mario was my favorite.

    The first PC game I played was Bubble bobble, The first game that struck a chord in me was Half-life at the age of 5. God I loved playing around in black mesa... Before the aliens came.. That shit was too real!

    So I managed to reload the game and took the train ride and fucked with the scientists in an endless loop.

    Mine was Duke Nukem, which was the very first one, at age five. I think it was on Windows 3.1, which is very old computer specs.

    Lemmings on MS-DOS. Seriously. My dad had a 386 computer complete with floppy Floppy Drive (5.25 inch I think?). He had several games for it including the original Sim City and a pinball game called Tristan, but Lemmings was the first game I personally played on a computer.

    EDIT:

    Looking over the article I'm also pretty sure I've played the game James Davenport is talking about, but have no idea what it was called. His description sounds incredibly familiar.

    Delta Force, Settlers 3, Fifa 97, Moto Racer 2 in this order are the games i've played when me and my family got our 1st PC which included these games.

    TO go even earlier, the 1st game i've played was Forbidden Forest on C64    and it made me fear spiders

    Opposing Force is about as early as I remember, but I think I played Doom shareware before that.

    Started playing it a bit again, and I still haven't finished it, or Spiderman, or AoE, or tons of other games. There's so many childhood games that need completion.

    When I was around 4 I had an old computer from the 80s. I don't know what it was but I had a shitload of unlabelled cassette tapes with games on them. If you didn't turn the different parts of the computer on in the right order (the cassette reader was plugged in separately) you didn't get any sound in the games, which was actually useful as I had no volume control since all the sound was MIDI beeps and boops, so I could play in the morning when my parents were still asleep.

    It was either dx-ball 2 or re-volt and both games have definitely stood the test of time with re-volt having a crazy modding community that is still going.

    Lemmings 2: Tribes on MS-DOS.
    I was so young I had no idea what was going on other than it was exciting and I loved it.

    Didn't really play games at all in general till Red Alert 1 came out.

    Unreal Tournament GOTY.
    I was 4 years old when I played it at my cousins' house; they were crazy about it. I remember we would take turns on the computer; whenever one dies, someone else takes his/her place.

    It's still one of my favorite games of all time and I still listen to it's awesome soundtrack very often.

    The first games I've played were demos and shareware stuff. I distinctly remember that one Half-Life demo where a headcrab jumps straight at you in a vent, good stuff. That, and Diablo 2, but I could barely make sense of it.

    TES Oblivion blew my fucking mind. I'd say it was my first "real" game. In the very beginning of it, after you're told to find Martin, I angered some guard because I was an asshole kid and then fled to the monastery. The moment the guard followed me to another location was almost like an epiphany. I can't stop gaming ever since.

    Tyrian! Never going to forget the entire soundtrack because of how many times I played through the whole thing.
