By 1st game, I mean purchased, not played as in you were at an arcade or a friends house.
Mine was "Aztec" a real gem for the Apple\\ especially with it's inspiration (the Indiana Jones movies) still being big business when the game came out.
Sounds interesting. "Pitfall" is running through my mind, that was a nice platformer game.
The first game I purchased was kind of late. Since I started playing on a PC with the age of 8 (at the end of 1990, so I'm 30 now), all the games were either delivered with the PC or traded with other boys of my age in school. I played almost all the good games from the 90ies and some of the 80ies like Battlechess or SimCity.
Indeed I always had enough games, and since I didn't have much pocket-money I never intended to buy a game by myself. But in 1999 there was a big game collection (Gold Games 3 and Play The Games) for just 120 Mark (around 65 Euro or now 85$) containing about 50 games. I couldn't resist, bought it and had fun for years! In addition I bought MDK for 20 Mark and also enjoyed this (but only later when there was a patch for quick-saving available).
