    Shucks I may be dating myself, but my first two computer games were "Adventure" written by DEC folks for the DEC-10. Second was a multiuser version of Startrek also written for the DEC-10. Boy could 30 people bring the machine down. Both of these were text games, as there weren't many graphic's terminals. Way pre PC stuff.

    The ORIGINAL Castle Wolfenstein on the Atari 800 (computer, not console). It was the first game with sound! My father still has his old Atari computers, and I actually found the game with an Apple IIe emulator.

    Really dating myself here. First game played on a "computer" was "Pit with Monsters" . 8 hours of typing a DOS game on a ZX81 ( complete with button on 16K RAM pack ) & recorded on tape on 3rd attempt. It was a text based game with very good maze graphics for it's day.

    :ninja:

    Irony is I bought it from a 14 yr old boy who'd outgrown it, for a 36 yr old man as his first computer. :D
