What was the first game you ever owned?; Not played, but owned

What was the first ever video game that you actually owned? Something that you could play whenever you wanted without having to go to a friends house or something.

For me, it was Command & Conquer: Tiberian Sun. My Grandmother bought it for my dad and my dad and I would play it together. I still have yet to beat the game in 17 years, its so hard!
looking back at the game now I'm surprised I was allowed to play it or that it wasn't rated M (for the time). ( a guy gets his neck slit in the game and its live action!)

I am going to simply this and note the first game I personally purchased with my first paycheck.

That being Mario Sunshine 8-)

First game I ever owned was a hand me down. I got my older brothers NES with Super Mario Bros, Excitebike, Duck Hunt, Metroid, and I had a 30 in 1 cartridge. First I ever bought was Mega Man X on the SNES, still one of my favorite games!

When I was really young the first thing we had was an NES with Mario/Duck Hunt, and then I think my parents got me my own Gameboy with Tetris.

Super Mario 64. I got it when I was 2!
Aaaand then my mom sold my N64 when I was 5. I still haven't forgiven her. I'm joking of course. And I can't find a decently priced copy of SM64 anywhere now that I've got a working N64. Not joking there.
As for the first game I bought with my own money, possibly Metal Gear Solid 4, but my memory's spotty so it was probably something else.

Hm. I think it was Doom tbh. Nothing out of the ordinary here. Bought our first PC in 96, and Doom with duke nukem 3D with it. And from there it goes)

First one was probably from the original Gameboy - it'll have either been Tetris or Super Mario Land. I loved that console.

I got a handful simultaneously from my father when he gave us his old N64. 1080 Snowboarding, Ocarina of Time, Star Wars Racer, probably a couple of others less memorable to me. The first game I actually bought myself was Ratchet and Clank for the PS2.

Mario 64 played that game constantly until the console broke

Astrosmash, among other for the intelivision that my father had before I was born but that i could play anytime i wanted. As for games where it was mine exclusively Zelda: Link's awakening.
