You pretty much dated yourself with this. ;)
I played Space Quest as a child too. Later on a few friends of mine in High School where big fans of Police Quest and always played it in any computer the school let them use during lunch time to play games  but I never really played it myself. For me though childhood games wouldn't just include PC games let alone PC adventure games.. but NES games as well.

First game i ever bought! Me and my friend had saved up our allowances for weeks to get it!
Played on my fathers Mac IIsi and my friend had some sort of LC/Performa.
I think we used almost half a year to finish it, because we didn't know english much then.

I played mostly consoles; console games are much easier to play and get running than computer games for a child. We did have a used Amiga but most (all?) od the games were pirated and hd no manual, so good luck trying to figure out how to play them. it was like being in a library full of books written in a foreign language, I just couldn't figure out what to do. There were two games I did play though, Wheel of Fortune, which was only fun with other players, it's also the only game my parents ever played, and sort of Tetris like game (I can't remember the name anymore).

Anyway, when I got my Super Nintendo it came with two games (it was a second hand one but it looked like it was never played):
Super Mario World
http://www.youtube.c...h?v=MXvHHwOYTFg
I could never beat it back then though, something simpler like the original Super mario Bros. would have been much better as a start. The music is kind of a mess, some of it sounds really nice, other parts sound like someone going crazy in Garage Band mixing instruments that were never supposed to be played together.

Pac Man 2:
http://www.youtube.c...h?v=ooRk7x_mYCA
Remember Ms. Pac Man? Pac Man Jr.? Forget about those, this is the real sequel! Apparently, I guess. Seriously, why call this Pac Man 2, it is nothing like Pac Man. To be fair, the name was only changed to Pac Man 2 outside Japan because all Non-Asian are butt-breathing idiots who will fall for every marketing trick (like how they called Mecha Godzilla King Kong in Germany, because no one can tell the difference between a gorilla and a robot-dinosaur).
Aside from the complete betrayal of the Pac Man name it's a nice Point & Click adventure with a twist: you don't control the character himself, you use your slingshot to interact with the world and can point Pac Man into different directions. His mood changes as things happen, so he can be sad, angry, normal, cheerful or downright insane. The fun comes from figuring out stuff and trying to solve the puzzles. There are a ton of hidden easter eggs and depending on how many you found it can give you various extras when you beat the game. It was fun back then, but there isn't really any replay value once you've seen everything.

Kirby's Star Stacker:
http://www.youtube.c...h?v=_VlmhP14Rj8
This was my first Gameboy game. I still feel sorry for the poor employe at the store; you see, back then video games were so special, they had to be behind closed glass and you needed an employe to open it up so you could pick your game. Back then you also didn't have the internet (at least not like you have today) so the only way to pick a game was based on the boxart and the short description on the back. On top of that you would only get a game once a year or once every two years, so you better mak a good decision or you'll be stuck with it. Back then we didn't have a GameStop where you could just trade in your game after beating the five-hour linear scripted campaign that mostly consists of walking don a corridor and watching cutscenes. No sir, picking a game was serious business back then and I took forever, while my father and the employe had to wait patiently.
It's a Tetris-like game where blocks fall and you try to clear lines. I played it so much, I even beat the insane difficulty. Looking back, even that is not so hard, I can beat it without problems even after years not playing. I remember when I finally got a Gameboy (yes, I got a Gameboy game before I had a Gameboy. How did I play it until then? Using the Super Gameboy on the SNES. That made more sense than gettin a Gameboy first and then a game, since Nintendo wasn't packing Tetris with their consoles anymore by that time) it was the beginning of the supper holidays, so when I woe up before everyone else I would take my Gameboy (it was a GBC) and play Kirby's Star Stacker on the balcony with good sunlight lighting.

The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening:
http://www.youtube.c...h?v=vd6WF0IZjxg
This was my first Zelda. Some other boys at school had it on their Gameboys and I was so amazed I wanted it myself. You had this huge continuous world, which I had never seen in  video game before. it wasn't just about fighting monsters in levels, it was an adventure where you could explore the world, find secrets and overcome obstacles with better equipment. I still play it from time to time, it's still fun although I do't think it's as good as the other classic Zeldas. Then again, it is by far better than any of those abominations that came after Ocarina of Time.

Super Mario Bros. DX:
http://www.youtube.c...h?v=6LrtclTHU4M
Now that's what you call a remake! Th original game, a challenge mode, a VS mode, the Lost Levels, and a bunch of extras. It even had achievements. I saw it on a discount sale one day and immediately bought it. It's easily my favourite Gameboy game besides Zelda and the first Mario I had beaten. Like I sayed above, it's a really good start for playing Mario and platformers in general. The controls are really good and there is enough good content in the game. The only part I don't like about this version retrospect is that the screen area is smaller (there was no vertical scrolling on NES), so some jumps you could do in the NES version are impossible here because you don't see enough. Well, they are not impossible but you wouldn't know when to jump unless you played the game before.

Pokemon Blue Edition:
http://www.youtube.c...h?v=74eLOYIXshs
This was my first RPG with numbers and stats and stuff. I played uite a lot of it back then, but I wouldn't want to touch it anymore, everything in the game is so painfully slow. Even the menu is delayed, don't ask me how they managed to do that.
Games I own that still need porting:
Dark Messiah of Might & Magic, Descent 3, Fallout, Space Rangers 2

I didn't have much trouble getting and playing computer games as a child once we got a PC. We actually got a PC before we got a Nintendo. I started with a DOS PC when I was around ten years old... and quickly learned my way around the command line loading up all my simpler DOS games then growing into configuring autoexec.bat and config.sys later on when games got more complicated to setup. Later on I got into Nintendo with the NES then SNES.. then in around 1995 I got fully into PC Gaming with PC Gamer magazine and a new PC and never looked back to console land.

played my first games on a Vic 20 ... most were game cartridges that plugged in still at that time.  Later moved to a tandy color computer, and for most of its life loaded up programs and games off cassette tapes before disk drives finally came out  :-)  Then moved on to DOS gaming, then added some Nintendo in there.  I stopped using consoles after the Super Nintendo as well.

Yeah, my parents couldn't afford or didn't want to get a computer or any game systems before they got the Tandy 100HX... it wasn't even for me but I took it over... lol

Before then I was mostly just playing with the Apple //'s in school every once in a while.

I never had a tape drive at home.. oldest storage media I've had was 5 1/4 inch floppies.

Well, I'll guess you did have someone to show you how to do those things or at least you had manual ;) For some Amiga games it was as easy as inserting the floppy disc and plugging in the joystick, but most other games had complicated interfaces or were in Engish (Engish is not my first language)

I guess it helped that english is my first language..... and someone did get me started but most of what I know I learned on my own including back then from trial and error... and it got easier and easier by repetition.

My parents are\where technical neophytes so they couldn't have shown me how.

My dad (who got me into gaming but now has no time for it) started and beat Super Mario World the night I was born (around this time it was really technologically advanced ok, don't hate) with me sitting on his lap... my mom has a picture of it. I still have that same Super Nintendo hooked up in my bedroom.

I know this will make me sound like an old man, but, I started of with a ZX Sinclair spectrum and games like "jet set willy" and "manic minor", then to an Amiga A500 with games like "it came from the desert" and "James Pond. Then I moved to to a Macintosh LCIII with the original "Wolfenstein" then we bought a PowerMac 7600 or 7500 maybe can't remember the name exactly of the Mac. I use to play "Ultimate Doom" and "marathon" on that. Then I got a MacBook G3 233 and I played "quake", "unreal tournament", "Age of Empires 3" and "Quake 2". Then my G4 tower 867 DP, which I player "unreal tournament 2004", "world of warcraft","Halo" and "Starcraft".

Ha awesome childhood games on Xbox.

When I was your age, we made social networks out of hardtack and radio tubes. “Faves” cost a nickel, our friends had polio, and we LIKED it.

But when I think of childhood games - I think of Oregon trail, Math Race, King's Quest, Ultima and Wizardry. If it comes to console games I think of old Atari games like Combat and Baseball.
