What was the very first electronic game you can ever recall playing? Any platform. If you can, try and tell us the year as well for extra nostalgia points. From me it was Vortex Blaster on Sega SC-3000H. My very first shmup, incidentally (my shared favourite genre of game along side arcade fighting games). The game was released in 1984, but I'm pretty sure I played it in '85. I remember dad brought home the unit one day with a big grin on his face. Distributed by John Sands electronics, and bought from a local Tandy. Within hours we'd fired the thing up and written a few programs in Sega Basic for laughs. I think Vortex Blaster was an original cassette that he got with it.
