First Gaming Memory: I'm old enough that my first gaming memory was of playing "Pong" on a creamy-white, off-brand "Pong" multi-system. It was at a friend's house in Scotland when I was a wee lad of about seven. I remember being astounded that this machine had at least eight different variations of "Pong." But my most intense young gaming memory was of playing "Combat" on the Atari 2600. If I remember correctly, it had 52 different game types, mostly variations on a hunt and kill theme. Now that I think about it, gaming in those days was almost by necessity a multiplayer experience and demonstrated that almost every game is fun, if you just have a real opponent.
