First! No I’m not talking about those annoying posters that have to be the “first” to make a post on a video, blog, or anything else you can leave a comment on. I’m talking about the “first” game to be an action-adventure game, “Adventure”! Original title right? Well that’s how games were named back in 1979.

It was also one of the first video games to allow a player to explore a large multi-screen game world. Adventure also was the first video game to have a hidden surprise, now known as an “Easter Egg.” Last but not least it was also the first game ever to allow a character to carry and use moveable objects instead of having an inventory to use. Four firsts all from one game that looks like it was made in paint? Oh yea. With all those innovations it’s easy to see why this game went on to sell more then one million copies!
