Day 1: Your very first video game
Now I don’t really remember my very first game. Let me correct that…I don’t remember the first game I saw. It could of been anything on Sega or Nintendo. The first video game I was able to play was “Zombies Ate My Neighbors” for the SNES. Initially, I was the person that remember the passwords to levels for my uncle and his friends but eventually it turned into allowing me to play (it kept me quiet). They would move on and play Mortal Kombat or Street Fighter, which I wasn’t allowed to play yet so “Zombies At My Neighbors” was my first real exposure to playing video games.
The game is self-explanatory. Zombies ate your neighbors and your objective is to save the neighbors that haven’t been eaten while fending off zombies and other classic monster movie characters. Was it the best game at the time? No…no it wasn’t. But for an 7-8 year old playing a game on a game system for the first time, it was the world to me. This opened me up to Super Mario World, Mario Kart and the rest is history (I’m a gamer if you didn’t catch it lol).
Told you these would be short posts. What was your first video game? Do you remember? Tell us what game ans why in the comments! See you guys tomorrow! Until next time, Nerd Out!
