This is a discussion on What was your first video game you bought? within the General Chit-Chat forum, part of the Off Topic Chat; Well my parents bought me when I was a kid:
My first video game would have to be:
Mario/Duck Hunt as a kid. The first games I bought with my own money were a few sports games for PS2 all on the same day. I got NHL Hitz (super fun game), Madden and 989 Sports MLB. I dont remember the year but it was probably 2002ish...
The first videogame I ever bought was Jak & Daxter for the PS2. It was the whole reason I bought a PS2. And I remember being so proud of myself setting everything up by myself, which admittedly was really easy but I didn't know it would be.
Before that, I played videogames my parents bought me or that my roommate had.
