What was the first Nintendo game that you remember playing?

Duck Hunt or Super Mario Bros for NES.
Though I honestly could have played Donkey Kong in the arcade or Atari first.  I'm an old one.

Banned the original poster because it was a spambot that copied the opening post of this Reddit thread. However, I've got nothing against the topic so I guess I'll let Spak-Spang's first reply become the topic starter for this conversation now instead. Except the first reply in the Reddit thread was also SMB/Duck Hunt..... Hmmmm. Is there something you've been meaning to tell us Spaky?

Super Mario World. Got dozens of SNES and Genesis games unexpectedly one night back in 1998/97.

I don't think I've ever replayed it since 2001, I really need to go back to it someday.

My first true gaming experience was watching my cousins play the original Super Mario Brothers. I mostly jumped up and down watching them play and was in love. Took a few years to get my own system, the one that had SMB3 packed in the box. I remember carrying it out of the store in a paper bag while thanking my Mom for buying it, as she was against me getting one for the longest time. Between the initial experience and the purchase of the system my Dad would rent the NES with some games occasionally, typically when family visited so all the cousins could play together. Played a lot of Mario, Zelda, Bomberman, and Ducktales this way.

I had most of the classic Capcom Disney games as my parents preferred those titles over unlicensed games that were "unknown" to them, but thankfully the Capcom games were all clones of quality titles like Castlevania, Metroid, Mega Man, and the like.

I also had all of the old unlicensed Bible-themed games because my Dad worked part-time at a Christian bookstore and they gave him a discount on them. They were entertaining but of varying degrees of poor quality. Though the true highlight was the blatant Zelda clone called Spiritual Warfare. It had you traveling the world fighting demon possessed people to reclaim classic Biblical artifacts that doubled as the game's "tools". Game ended with you storming Hell and kicking Satan's Ass.

All these would constitute as my earliest gaming memories. Good times were had all around.

Sadly I was forced to sell all of my games when I got an SNES because Mom felt I only needed one system. All of

I feel like my earliest memories are of Goldeneye 64. I can recall playing that at after school club at a very young age. Maybe I was 6 or 7? I remember a lot of walking around the seemingly endless snow level.

I'm pretty sure it was Super Mario Bros. 3 for me. My first gaming most likely would have been on my aunt's NES, and I have tons of memories of Mario 3 at her house. She was a huge Zelda fan, she managed to beat the original game without a guide, and I used to look at the maps she made herself on paper.

Does Donkey Kong on Intellivision count? If not then probably the arcade version of Donkey Kong jr. I remember I used to go to a dentist as a kid where that & Popeye were set on free play.
Mission...complete?

I came back and saw I started this thread but didn’t remember doing it. Now I understand. I should ask another question
