I thought it'd be interesting to see.

What is your first:
- PC game that you played/owned?
- Handheld game that you played/owned?
- Console game that you played/owned?
- Sega/Sonic game that you played/owned?

I'll go first:
- PC game that you played/owned?
Hard to tell since it's been so long, but most likely Freddi Fish.
- Handheld game that you played/owned?
Super Mario World on the GBA.
- Console game that you played/owned?
Probably Super Mario Allstar on the SNES but the first one I owned was Super Mario Smash Football.
- Sega/Sonic game that you played/owned?
Sonic Advance 3 for the GBA.

My firsts:
- My first PC game that I played was Raptor: Call of the Shadows, which now has a Steam remake that I've recently started playing. I never really thought about it but it's more than possible that the reason I'm into bullet hell games as much as I am is that they remind me of this.

- My first handheld was Pokemon Blue! Which was also the first non-pc game I'd owned. A very good start, all said.

- The first console game I can remember playing is Quest 64, but I'm certain I messed around with others first. Regardless, that was what made me interested in video games.

- My first Sonic game was the PC port of Sonic 3 & Knuckles and it gave me a pretty good impression despite disliking action games at the time. Kind of odd that it didn't get me into the series itself...

Not counting free games downloaded off the internet, Sid Meier's Pirates!
First handheld I ever played was probably my cousin's copy of Metroid II Return of Samus. First game I had for my GBA was, I think, Pokemon Yellow- or the port of Super Mario Bros. 3
First console game I ever played was The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, first I ever owned was Super Mario Bros. With Duck Hunt
Sonic Advance/Sonic Pinball Party Combo Pack

PC: I think Spiderman Cartoon Maker on Windows 95, was it? First that I actually owned was probably Diablo. Yay, the Butcher.
Handheld: Super Mario Land 3: Wario Land, for sure, still a favorite.
Console: First owned that was mine was Diddy Kong Racing, but I think the one I first played was Super Mario Bros. 2 USA.
Sega/Sonic: I played Sonic 2 with cousins, but I only started buying Sonic games following SA2B and Sonic Mega Collection. First Sega game, I don't know, Altered Beast or some Golden Axe, maybe.

PC: Well it was Mac OS 9, but my first computer game and video game period was Lemmings. I think my interest in retro gaming likely came from the fact that Lemmings was the first game I played even though it came out in 1991 and I was born in 1996. I'm pretty sure I played it for the first time when I was about 5 or so which means it would of already been 10 years old by then. I still love Lemmings a lot. It's unique, it's clever and it's so satisfying to come up with puzzle solutions in. I love how most levels have multiple solutions and if you experiment around with what abilities you have and use them in a less direct way than the level is seeming guiding you into you can often end up saving more Lemmings, and it feels good to come up with that kind of superior solution yourself. So much content as well, 120 levels is huge for a '91 game and even modern puzzle games rarely have that amount of longevity, especially if you account for the potential replay value of trying to save 100% on as many levels as possible

Handheld: My first handheld was a GBA SP and with it I got Super Mario Bros 3. Weird confession: I've never beaten Mario 3 for some reason. I like it, I think it's a great game, but part of me always found the original 2D Mario games a bit vanilla (I mean of course they are because they basically invented the genre as we know it now) and I don't really feel compelled to revisit many of them other than Mario World or sometimes Mario 2 USA. Regardless, I loved it as a kid, I think it was a great introduction to Nintendo and the kind of fun and great game design that nearly all of their games embody. I feel like I have the least to say about Mario 3 despite what an important game it was both in terms of gaming history and my own personal gaming background, but at the same time I don't think much needs to be said as we all know why it's a good game.

Console: My first console was a PS2 and my first game for it was Sonic Heroes. If you've talked to me in the Discord server you know that I often mention how much I love Heroes despite how flawed it was, but I don't have much nostalgia for the PS2 version at all. I found it extremely hard as a kid, I couldn't get past Power Plant as anyone other than Team Rose because of the rising lava sequence and even back then without anything to compare it to I knew there was something off about the PS2 version (the awkwardly long load time for the results screen being the most defining thing for me as a kid). It wasn't until I got my Gamecube and after playing the Adventure games endlessly on that and loving them I repurchased the Gamecube version and was stunned by how night and day the comparison was, suddenly it felt like I was actually playing SA3.

SEGA/Sonic: My first Sonic game, not counting fan stuff like Ultimate Flash Sonic, was Sonic Advance 3. Do I like Advance 3 now? Not really. I tried it again earlier this year and the combination of the Chao collecting, poor field of view and the confusing level layout where everything looks the same turned me off almost immediately, and I wasn't keen on doing a playthrough where I didn't get the emeralds. Back then though? God, I ADORED Advance 3. The jump in quality from barely functional and laggy fan games to an official Sonic game was huge, and I absolutely loved everything from the sense of speed, to the character variety to the look and sound of the game. Of course I wasn't going for the emeralds back then and with pretty much all of the Dimps games bar Rush (because hey the bonus stages in that one are actually fun for once) I feel that ignoring them is the better way to play the game, not like you can even use Super Sonic in the main levels like in Mega Drive Sonic.

For my first SEGA game on an actual SEGA console, my first SEGA console was, probably not surprising anyone here, a Master System. In 2010. Welcome to my life. I bought it online and it had Alex Kidd in Miracle World built in, so I think that was the one I played first, but it also came with Sonic the Hedgehog 2, Castle of Illusion, Wonder Boy, Wonder Boy III: The Dragon's Trap, Spider Man and Trivial Pursuit. I really like most of those games. Spider Man was pretty bad and I never really touched Trivial Pursuit but the rest range from good to fantastic, the Wonder Boy games and Castle of Illusion still remain some of my favourite games on the console to this day.

My first PC game was a port of Puzzle Bobble that, for whatever reason, had no music. I managed to retrieve it from my old computer and put it on my current computer, and it works perfectly. Still no music, though.

My first handheld game was a version of Mega Man 2 for the Game Boy. It was weird. It had four bosses from the NES version of Mega Man 2 and four bosses from Mega Man 3.

My first console game was a Spider-Man game for the Playstation. It was my absolute favorite game at the time and still holds a special place in my heart to this day.

My first Sonic game was Sonic 2. Back then, I could only get as far as Aquatic Ruin Zone—maybe Casino Night if I got lucky—before losing all my lives.

Cap'n Crunch's Crunchling Adventure. Gotta love the days where cereal brands had computer games of questionable quality.
- Handheld game that you played/owned?
Hard to pin, as I'm pretty sure I got 5-6 at the same time. Pokemon Red, Gold, Silver, Donkey Kong Country 1 and 2, 2 different Tetris games, and Super Mario Land..
- Console game that you played/owned?
Rugrats in Paris for the Playstation. I remember going with mom picking it up with a Playstation- the guy working forgot to take a sensor out and made the security go off. I was terrified we were gonna get arrested, lol.

Sonic Advance 3 on the GBA
