Pong at a neighbors house.
When Atari came out we wanted it bad but our dad got the Magnavox copy. It just wasn’t the same as it didn’t have the processor the Atari systems had.
Found a pic. It was the Oddesey 2 system. The picture on the game box was always cooler than the game graphics.

Super Mario Brothers. The first one on NES.

I want to say it was PONG on an Atari that had battle tanks.

I sold off some NES stuff about 15 years ago and was shocked at what people were willing to pay.

Pong, on the original two knob Pong console at a friend's house. Funny thing, it's the only home video game I've ever played. That version came out in 1972, and I was 7. I was probably 8 or 8 when I played it.
"We may consent to be governed, but we will not be ruled." - Kevin D. Williamson, 2012
"All the citizens of this land are of right freemen; they owe no allegiance to any class and should recognize no task-masters. Under the chart of their liberties, under the law of high heaven, they are free and without shackles on their limbs nor mortgages upon the fruits of their brain or muscles; they bow down before no prince, potentate, or sovereign, nor kiss the royal robes of any crowned head; they render homage only to their God and should pay tribute only to their Government. Such at least is the spirit of our institutions, the character of our written national compact."

Donkey Kong on an Intellevision. Played the hell out of that game. Then racing and baseball.

My Dad was an early A/V nerd and a computer geek in general. He came home with this bad boy one day.
Pong, then Load Runner and Zork on Commodore 64.

Does it have to be a *Video* game? The first computer games I remember playing were text-based. One, I think it was called "Trucker" was written in BASIC. You could actually read (and change, if you wished!) the code to customize it. Then there were the games like Zork ("you were eaten by a grue").
My wife at the time worked for a startup company that produced "game modems" for the Commodore 64. You paid a subscription and the modem would dial into the company's host computer and you could download and play any game in the catalog. I remember PaperBoy, Donkey Kong, Frogger, Snake, Asteroids, Centipede and the like.
I got a Mac in 1984, and the graphics (and sound!) for games were awesome! Prince of Persia, 3in3, Crystal Quest, Arkanoid were some of the games I remember.
Then, I also got a PC, because I used one at work, and with it I played Art of War, Football, Leisure Suit Larry, Duke Nukem, and more. I sometimes wonder how I got any work done!
These days, I limit my game playing to my cell phone.
You can't truly call yourself "peaceful" unless you are capable of great violence. If you're not capable of great violence, you're not peaceful, you're harmless.

Intellevision. Whatever airplane game that said “Bombs away!”
IIRC, it required an add on device to the console. As a poor kid at a friends house well it was kind blowing back then.

There are, it has been said, two types of people in the world. There are those who, when presented with a glass that is exactly half full, say: this glass is half full. And then there are those who say: this glass is half empty. The world belongs, however, to those who can look at the glass and say: What's up with this glass? Excuse me? Excuse me? This is my glass? I don't think so. My glass was full! And it was a bigger glass!
