Accept Colossal Cave for the first text adventure game.

Also, how was King's Quest the first point-and-click game? The original version had a text-based parser.

There were also multiple handhelds before the Lynx, including the Microvision and Game and Watch- not to mention that the freaking
was released a few months prior.
And "Tic-Tac-Toe" was A) not the title of the game you're thinking of (it was "OXO"/"Noughts and Crosses"), and B) not the first video game. And your use of "control stick" for the N64 makes no sense, since joysticks obviously existed long before that.
And why include two questions where the answer is "Adventure"?
And why use a question based on "Lemmings" when there's no other question about a specific game/series, and when the answer is both obvious and stupid?
Oh, and what's your source for all of this?

@ Aaron: Thanks for the info, I'll fix that. @ Kicking222 T-c-Tac-Toe and Noughts and Crosses are the same thing, but I'll put those as seperate choices. The whole debate for first video game is still going on so nothing can be said right now. There were 2 different games titled "Adventure". Made by different companies as you can see. Lemmings was a category I included because.....I don't know. I'll probably delete that one. And I'll fix the gameboy/lynx thing. And Game&Watches were all seprate games themselves...not really consoles. My source is various websites like Wikipedia and GamesRadar. Thanks for the advice.

Everything you guys said is fixed. If anymore info is wrong, tell me. I'll happily fix it.
