This is really hard because I've pretty much played video games my entire life, so trying to pinpoint exactly which game was my first is near impossible.

Resident Evil 2 Cover

When I first read the question, I went: Oh, easy!  My first PlayStation game was Resident Evil 2.  For some reason my like 6-7 year old self, who was as afraid of horror then as I am now, thought that getting a horror game was a good thing.  I think it was because my neighbor (who got everything they wanted) had the first Resident Evil, and I was made to think that having it was cool.  That, and I could actually watch them play if I wasn't holding the controller.  My parents knew I wouldn't like it but bought it for me anyway.  I played it for like 5 minutes, freaked out, and never touched it again.  I did think it was awesome that there were two discs, so you could play as either the boy or the girl.


Home Alone 2 Start Screen

Then I realized--no, that's not right.  I've played video games before that.  The next video game that I thought was my first was Home Alone 2: Escape from New  York for the PC. 
There were a lot of random trash cans in that game.
I vaguely remember being 4 and playing this game on my dads (then state-of-the-art) DOS computer.  A lot.  Even though I'm pretty sure I didn't know what was going on, but I really didn't care.


These don't represent the games I owned, it just looks cool.

But is it my first video game?  I then remembered my father owned a Nintendo.  I know I also used to play said Nintendo, even though I don't think I could read the words or figure out what was going on.  There was some sort of side-scrolling fighting game, jeopardy (which was fun considering I don't think I could read it yet), wheel of fortune, and The Legend of Zelda.  But I still don't know if one of those were my first video game.

So the short answer: I have no idea.
