Pong. Or actually it was the second version of the console that had Pong/Hockey modes with the difficulty switch that made the on-screen "paddles"
smaller. At some babysitter's house, when I was 4.
As for the first console my family owned? That would be the 2600 which was about a year or so later. The first four games it had was the generic
watered-down version of Pacman, and followed by Asteroids, Combat, and Frogger. Later on we got the other classic cartridge games like Pitfall,
Centipede, Enduro, RiverRaider, etc...
My first real computer games were on the Atari XE. (Ok, you could count the Apple IIe games at school, but they were pretty lame in comparison.) On
that one, it was a toss up between Mig Alley Ace, StarRaiders, and Blue Max. All of those were excellent games back in the day.
