    I'm too old to click on that. I'm afraid

    Hey, get off my lawn . (My first video-game memory is of Pong. A Pong console that hooked up to our TV and played four versions of Pong -- none of those new-fangled "game cartridges" that let you switch games ;^).)

    I was fascinated by the fact that I could move the knob and make something happen on the TV screen -- hey, I was five, what you you expect?

    Well LindaJeanne, my first non-Arcade video game was also Pong. The only difference is that while you were 5, I was in my 3rd year of College.

    Yep, same here. I liked the "hockey" version where you got a bar up front as well as near the goal...man that was SWEEET!

    I also knew Pong, but strangely it was not my first video game, the first one was at my neighbour's when we get back from school... it was an Atari and we used to play Space Invaders and the like...
