2009 E3 Brings Nintendo News Like new Super Mario Bros. For Wii

Geek Out: What Was Your First Video Game?

I remember it like it was yesterday. We had an Atari, given to us by our uncle who had already tired of it, and my mom was particularly averse to it, so the console got relegated to the 13-inch black-and-white tube TV. We didn't care though — my sister and I were just shocked and amazed that we had video games. In our own home! The game was Fast Food — you had to position a pair of lips to eat "good food" and avoid the bad — particularly the purple pickles (this is where the black and white TV was a clear disadvantage).

Why am I waxing nostalgic right now? Because I'm at E3! I'm in the midst of new video games everywhere — and can't help but gravitate to familiar titles like the New Super Mario Bros. for Wii — new, yet old.

So reach back — way back — and tell me: What was your first video game?
