Inspired by this old and just revived thread,, what was the first computer and/or video game you played?
My first was a tic-tac-toe game I wrote in machine language for the LGP-21 computer in our high school, in late 1968. When I was in college I got to play Space War on the PDP-1 at MIT made famous by the book Hackers. My assembly language class was on that machine. I also played Computer Space, the first Atari game, at the student center, in 1972 I think.
I translated the Star Trek game from David Ahl’s book of 50 BASIC games into Pascal for the PDP-11 we used in grad school, with a few changes. I also played lots of multiplayer games on PLATO around 1974-77, including what I bet is world’s first MUD.
