The first video game.
Disclaimer: This is going to age me :/ In 1988 I started my first year of High School and spent a lot of lunch times playing this game. I had already played Space Invaders and the like but my experience with Personal Computers had been limited. Family friends had a ZX Spectrum that I played a Moon Lander game on a few times, and during some time in Hospital I played Indiana Jones on an Apple II, but that was it. Labyrinth was one of the few games we were allowed to play on the schools BBC Basic computers that were our "computer lab" at the time. Looking back at it now, this game heavily influenced my gaming preferences and what kind of video games I am drawn to today. Even just watching a few seconds of game play has me wanting to play it again.
