first PC Lucasarts game I played was Their Finest Hour: The Battle of Britain

 

and just about every single one since then, the only ones to escape me perhaps were a couple of the kiddie racing games and Escape from MI and Grim Fandango, as 3d adventure didnt really strike my fancy at the time ;)

The first Lucasarts game I ever owned was X-Wing. It was included with the first family computer my parents bought back in 1994. I had a blast playing it. I was too young to understand the critical balancing act of modulating the energy outputs to engines, shields and lasers, so I just made myself an invincible juggernaut with unlimited ammo. :p

Pfft. I was 8 when the N64 first came out. Now look how much that improved in 5 years.

Man, I don't remember it looking so... not good, lol.

 

My first would be Rogue Squadron, I think... I know I had this little handheld game... you had to shoot the ties... forever. That was when I was about 5 years old. I played RS when I was 10 or 11.

My first LA game was Dark Forces on the original Playstation. I remember my brother-in-law had it and I would just watch him play and hope that he's let me play for awhile.

 

My first N64 game was Shadows of the Empire. For my Xbox it was The Clone Wars. Finally for my PC it was JO. I wish I could of tried all the other LA games for the previous consoles.

Oh my gosh, I think I had the same handheld! It used liquid crystal technology and had a Death Star picture for the background, right? You could move your X-Wing into one of three positions to shoot Ties and dodge laser bolts. That was a fun little game. It got old fast, but it was fun to pick up and play from time to time.

 

I also had a similar handheld that allowed you to join the Empire. You played as Darth Vader and flew in his Tie Advanced X1. It had a little Vader figurine as a joystick. The game allowed you to change key events in galactic history (shoot down Luke at Yavin, destroy the Millennium Falcon at Endor) and utterly destroy the Rebel Alliance. It was primitive, but fun.

Dark Forces was my first; I tried playing it again recently and, well, I guess I've been spoiled by recent releases and all their flashy graphics because I could not get past 5 minutes without being put off by 2D stormies that look they were built out of lego - ahhh, but it was oh so good back then.

Super Star Wars, got it the day it was released.

 

What he said, but I too am old enough to remember The Empire Strikes Back, only mine was for the Colecovision/Intellivision console. I still have it. I still think it is the absolute worst Star Wars game ever made.
