Does anyone remember the first ever preorder bonus?
I definitely dont remember them in the days of Nintendo 64, then even Dreamcast era (I dont think you got Luigi in Super Mario 64 from preordering, JOKE he is not in the game so dont google it lol)
So I guess around PS2 and Original Xbox days
but what would anyone guess to be the first preorder bonus game?

First game I ever pre-ordered: Mortal Kombat on SNES. What was that? 1991? All I got was a lousy sticker.
edit -- I was 13 at the time. No parents needed back then. lol

Hrm, I know the first game I ever preordered was Railroad Tycoon on the Amiga (or maybe Robocop)... either way, the only bonus given was the fact you got to pay MORE when the game was eventually released. There was none of this, we honour the price we initial offer it at... I actually got a letter from the company I ordered Railroad from stating unless I paid a further £4.95 they would not send the game! Cheeky bastards! This was before I could order online and in the days when sending a cheque was the only way I could pay remotely - does the letter count as a bonus?

The first ones I remember were the FFVII & Resident Evil 2 t shifts that came in a boxwith target preorders. Someone stole my FFVII shirt but I still own my RE2 one. Also I think I got a madcatz controller for preordering Metal Gear Solid from best buy.

I got T-shirts for both Final Fantasy 7 and Crash Bandicoot-Warped back from the PS1 era. Also got the gold cartridge of Zelda-TOOT from around the same time frame.

Off the top of my head, I think my first pre-order might have been Doom 3 on the original Xbox. Got a poster and a figurine of a Baron of Hell.

I remember getting a Banjo-Kazooie plush when my parents got us Banjo-Kazooie. Thats the first one I ever got. I thought that came with a Mumbo plush. I'm pretty sure it came with one when I got it. Or maybe that was Banjo-Tooie.
