It was after Space Invaders when all my friends started getting VCS's. So I was 9 or 10.

It was before we moved into the house we lived in when I turned 5, so definitely sometime in the 0-4 range. Most likely I was 3 or 4.

I put 5-9, but I'm not entirely sure.  I was born in 74, and I know I played it before I started kindergarten, but it came out in 77, so I couldn't have been less than 3 years old... anyway... it was around then.

The first 2600 game I remember seeing and playing was Space Invaders at JCPenney. Since that came out in 80, I was probably 9.
