Your First Video Game

This’ll date everyone real quick: what was the very first video game you played?

For me, it was a Sears Pong console of some sort; I have a very, very vague recollection of playing it on our big console Magnavox TV when I was really little. But we didn’t have it for long apparently, because I remember playing other, better games at friends’ houses a lot more often.

Hey, another Odyssey fan! Nice. I was a big fan of Pick Axe Pete and KC Munchkin.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
