I fell into the trap. 30 days of video game questions, brought to you by… Facebook? Instagram? Tumblr? Somewhere on the interwebs…
Day 1: Name your very first video game
That depends on what you mean by “first.” The first game that was specifically mine was a game called M.C. Kids on the NES. Because the Nintendo was technically my brother’s – and the games were technically split between him and my sister – I asked Santa for a video game all my own one year. Lo and behold, under the tree that year was this little bundle of joy. It was a platformer, starring two kids named Mic and Mack. Looking back now, it was a nice bit of advertising for McDonalds,since Ronald McDonald, Birdie, the Hamburglar, and all the rest of them are very prominent in the game.
It actually was a lot of fun to play, and I sank a lot of hours into it (never beating it, since I don’t think it had a way to save the game, unlike Mega Man and Zelda). But I enjoyed it all the same, even though the ice levels made me want to pull my hair out sometimes.
The first game I ever played was either Winter Games (anybody remember that one??), Super Mario Bros./Duck Hunt (Duck Hunt!!!!) or Zelda II: The Adventure of Link. I seriously don’t remember which one came first.
