My first game was Kings Quest and I was huge fan of Sierra and LucasArts games. Anyone else out there start with Sierra games?

My first adventure game was Myst.
The first games I played were similar in style to Myst -- 1st person games that ran in Windows 95, like Shivers, Connections, Atlantis, Timelapse, Titanic, Reah, Byzantine, Amber, Lighthouse, etc.

The first DOS games I played were Labyrinth of Time and Secret of Monkey Island.
Labyrinth of Time played in silence, but Secret of Monkey Island was an updated version that worked with sound in Windows 95.

Being able to play ALL the classic DOS Sierra and LucasArts games (not just those few that had been "updated" to run in Windows 95) was my inspiration for learning how to configure sound in DOS.
However they were not my earliest games.

Probably the first game I TRIED to play was Myst because it came with my computer but I think the first game I actually completed was Blackstone Chronicles but not when I first attempted it. It took me a long time to figure out how to play these games. When I went back to Myst I used a walkthrough for the whole game and STILL didn't understand what I was doing.

The Longest Journey. After playing for a little while, it was given that I would end up with a case of BAAGs.

My first adventure game was Zork. Shortly thereafter I played my first Sierra game, Wizard and the Princess.

The first real adventure game I played was Myst, though I had earlier played games with an adventure element on my Sinclair QL and Amiga. My second game was Riven, which I preferred to Myst (heresy. I know!), and my third was The Journeyman Project, Legacy of Time. All three are still favourites of mine and I have their boxes on the shelf over my PC where I can look at them nostalgically.

My VERY first adventure game was a weird text adventure for the Commodore 16 that was on a ROM cartridge. It was called "William's Berg Adventure" and the only thing I really remember about it was that you could buy a meal which, when you ate it, gave you the reaction "That hit the spot!".

I never really got on too well with the text adventure genre tbh... the first adventure game that made me really fall in love with the genre was Zak McKraken and the Alien Mindbenders on the Atari ST.

Apart from the early text adventures I can’t remember if it was Monkey Island or Simon the Sorcerer. I know one had my all time favourite characters the Woodworm National Front—Hilarious.

Pi-Mania, on the ZX81 -- does that count? laugh

My first PC adventure was Voodoo Kid. I enjoyed it, but didn't think to explore any further in the genre. A few years later, I was given Frogwares' Sherlock Holmes game, The Case of the Silver Earring, and that was it, I was hooked.
