What was everyone's first experience when it came to electronic games? I started off on a TRS-80.

It might've been a Commodore 64; I can't remember enough about it to say for sure. It was when I was like 4 or something, and my parents were experimenting on me with educational kids' games (which were still very new at the time, if I remember rightly).

Nintendo 64

Super Mario 64

When I was five or six years old, I think.

The Sony PlayStation for me. Although I suppose technically it was the Sega Mega Drive but I was too young to really consider that my first real experience. I only have some vague memories of playing Sonic and Aladdin on that thing. PlayStation is the true root of my gaming history.

Since then I'll play just about any console/system I can get my hands on. I have Commodore 64s, a Sinclair ZX Spectrum, Atari 520 STe, Sega Master System and at least one console from each generation from there. Gaming has been my main hobby for the majority of my life.

My first gaming experience was on the Nintendo 64. I remember always playing so many games on that thing. Mario, Earthworm Jim, South Park Racing. All of them were great games and they always kept me busy for hours at a time.

For me it was the Sega genesis

I would play a ton of Sonic, ToeJam and earl, mortal combat, and a ton of other stuff.

I still have it and it still works, I just need a working controller.

On a PC with Windows 95 OS. I played games like Aladdin, Transport Tycoon and Duke Nukem 3D.

Later I got a Gameboy Classic for my birthday and then a couple of years later I got my first console which was the Nintendo 64. It's still my favourite console and I still play games on it regularly.

The first game system I ever played was the Sega Dreamcast but I also had the Sega Genesis, SNES, Super Nintedo 64, and the Playstation growing up due to my brothers being lazy bums.

The Amiga 1200, I was very much an Amiga kid growing up and played countless games including the wide variety of indie games and using the creation tools like D-paint to make animations. It was a very good system and far superior to the PCs which at the time couldn't stand close in comparison.

Simon the Sorcerer, The Chaos Engine, Beneath a Steel Sky. Such was my young life.

My first system, technically my parents', was an Atari 2600. There are some great games for that system. Pitfall, Pong, Donkey Kong, Space Invaders, Yar's Revenge, Centipede, all the classic arcade games, Keystone Capers which nobody ever mentions...
My cousin gave me his NES and all his games (what an awesome guy) when I was like 7, so that would technically be the first system that was mine.

We got an old Window 95 machine in the early 90s, and I must have been 3 or 4. It had a game called Launchpad, and Descent, both of which I played tons of.

NES. Then a clunky 486 that functions to this very day. They made computers a lot better back then, apparently.
