So what was everyones first gaming experience? Let us know a bit about the game and where you played it. I'm probably older than most here.. but my first gaming experience was on the Odyssey 1 back in the mid 70's. I couldn't have been more than five, but my dad had picked one up at a yard/boot sale and brought it home. The thing was still almost new... considering how bad the console was, I don't think the original owners kept it around for too long.. I eventually graduated to pong and then the Atari 2600. My first exposure to an upright arcade game was in the late '70's at the Settlers Inn, which was a huge log cabin inn.. known for being the oldest log cabin in the US and being tied directly to the Revolutionary War. But that was where I first came across Space Invaders... and later, Asteroids. Thats pretty much the beginning of where I got my love for shoot'em ups.. which was later cemented in my psyche by the amazing retro classic Galaga. So what was your first experience?

Gandalf42 posted a topic in STG ChatI think retro news probably excites me more than it does most people, still.. RetroGames Limited has just announced that the stellar single-screen shooter Galencia, for the Commodore 64, is to be released as a new free game for the C64-Mini in the next firmware update. Great game, own this in digital and big box.. just wish they'd release the damn mini over here already.
