This was a really fun conversation I had with a couple buddies the other day, and I'm curious to hear everyone else's stories. This can range from your first game ever, to your first RPG, etc.

I'll start with a list of my first games I've played on each console or handheld (in the order that I played them):

PS1: Crash Bandicoot (actually my first game ever)
PC: There's a Dinosaur in the Garden
N64: Donkey Kong 64
SNES: Super Mario World
NES: Super Mario Bros. 3
GBA: Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone
Gameboy: Donkey Kong
PS2: Kingdom Hearts
Sega Genesis: Sonic the Hedgehog
Gameboy Color: Pokemon Silver
GameCube: The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker
Xbox: Metal Gear Solid 2: Substance
Nintendo DS: Trace Memory
PSP: Daxter
Wii: Resident Evil 4 Wii Edition
Xbox 360: Eternal Sonata
PS3: Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots
PS Vita: Uncharted: The Golden Abyss
Nintendo 3DS: Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance
PS4: The Last of Us Remastered

I'm pretty sure that's every console I've ever played. Atari might have been in there at some friend's house at some random point in my life, but I'm not even sure what I would have played on it.

Firsts ey? I'll list the first games I remember playing on some consoles, then maybe I'll mention some firsts for series and or genres. I'll only list what I remember, so if you don't see a certain genre or console, then I don't remember.

Nintendo: I wanna say... Paperboy
Super Nintendo: Super Mario All-Stars
Sega Genesis/Mega Drive: Either The Lion King, Street Fighter II, or Mortal Kombat. Perhaps Sonic 1?
Nintendo 64: LoZ: Ocarina of Time
Gameboy: Pokemon Blue
Playstation: God this one is hard. It was probably Crash Bandicoot.
PS2: I don't remember what my first game was.
Xbox: Halo
PC: Probs Toy Story Interactive Stu-- No! It was Hugo's House of Horrors. An adventure game where you interact by typing text commands. "Look in pumpkin" "Break pumpkin" "Get key" "Unlock front door". That game taught me how to spell pumpkin. Also, that was the time I ever knew what Lord of the Rings/The Hobbit was. There was some question about The Hobbit at the end of the game.

RTS: Star Craft on N64, or Age of Empires II on PC
Shooter: GoldenEye obviously
Platformer: Super Mario probably.
Story driven: Flashback: The Quest for Identity
Fighter: Mortal Kombat
Sports: NBA JAM! Or maybe it was technically California Games?

Split screen: Halo 1?
Online multiplayer: Quake 2
Console Online multiplayer: Halo 2.
Final Fantasy: FF8
Mature game outside my age bracket: Conker's Bad Fur Day. A very awkward game to play in front of your parents when you're 13.

And since we're on a forum about the series...
First KH game: Kingdom Hearts 1
Year started: Mid 2003. About 10 months after it released. Held off playing it because I thought it was a game for young kids, and I was a a 13/14 year old "mature adult" now. Too old for baby Disney games.

That was a fun trip down memory lane. Made me think of a bunch of other games that weren't firsts. It was nice thinking about them again.

[Edit] Sillysharebear, it looks like you're listing your favorite series, not your "firsts".

It's actually very hard for me to remember, in all honesty.

I believe it goes

Nintendo 64 - Banjo Kazooie
Gameboy - Pokémon Red
Gameboy Colour - Pokémon Gold
Gameboy Advance - Pokémon Sapphire
Playstation 2 - Orphan: Scion of Sorcery

Wii - Legend of Zelda Twilight Princess
Xbox 360 - Halo 3
Playstation 3 - LittleBigPlanet
Wii U - Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wilds
Playstation 4 - Far Cry 4
Playstation Vita - Steins;Gate and Persona 4 Golden

Since PC is a bit harder to remember:

First Steam Game: Half-Life 2
First MMORPG - Runescape

And since others have put down first in series:

First Final Fantasy Game: Final Fantasy VIII
First Persona Game: Persona 3

GBA: KH CoM. Kiddy me was a dumb cookie and got stuck in Agrabah, and then managed to lose the GBA along with my cartridge of CoM.
DS: Pokemon Pearl
Wii: LoZ-Twilight Princess
PSP: KH BBS
WiiU: Smash Bros U
PS3: KH2 (I got to play on my friend's Wii U and PS3, does that count?)

I definitely had a PS1 at some point, but I honestly can't remember what I did on it. Also had an Atari.
