Not the oldest game you've found--hell, we're all abandonware fans, so that's nothing. I mean the oldest game you've still got from the time you bought it, even if you bought it secondhand.

I still have my original Ultima III box floating around here, somewhere, but the one I can place my hands on is Hidden Agenda. I reviewed that for Compute! or PC Magazine back in 1988. It remains one of the most addicting strategy games I've ever played, and probably the most insightful. Unfortunately, the creator of the game hasn't any interest in updating it and seeking a new publisher. And given the current fat cat industries that control gaming, it probably wouldn't be taken onboard, in any case.

Well I haven't kept boxes (not even CD cases usually, but I kept some C64 game tapes). The oldest game is tha one my brother got on the very same day he got his Commodore 64. It's (surprise surprise) Ghostbusters (from 1984). :angel:

Not being able to find Atari ST games in their legal form, the earliest ST (thus any type) game in box that I also still have were from 1989, Vindicators and Airborne Ranger. If there were ST games sold then I would have much earlier ones. Unfortunately in all 7+ years I had an ST (from 1987) I only managed to find and buy in boxes just 15 or so games. All the other were from other sources.

I was born in 1987 so the earliest game I have is Ice Climbers for NES, sure the box is taped heavily but it still holds together.

Frontier, Eye of the Beholder or Monkey Island 2 for the Amiga, can't remember which is older.

My guess would be eye of the beholder as oldest among them.

The oldest PC game that i have in its box is Prince of Persia, but the oldest should be Asteroids for the Atari 2600!

In the box?

....Ah! Pool of Radiance,Gunship or Stealth Fighter.

Theyre not the first games nor the first game boxes i had,but theyre definetely the oldest.
