    I'm going to ignore level editors for 2d games like warcraft and such so...

    First 3d game I mapped for was Quake 1. But basically, those maps were just boxes with enemies in them... first maps I made that could be considered to be 'playable' was for hl1 dm.

    Worldcraft editor!

    Team Fortress 2 for me. I didn't used to be a PC gamer, so I never got to experience any other equally moddable games.

    TF2 again. I did play with the Unreal 2 editor prior to that, but without luck, nor a playable map to show for it. Now that I have UT3, I plan to start using the Unreal 3 editor. :D

    I've made maps for:

    Age of Empires
    StarCraft
    Tiberian Sun
    Dawn of War 2
    Ground Control 2 (probably the most time consuming editor ever)
    Half Life and its mods
    Half Life 2 and it's mods

    I've made maps for Time Splitters but that doesn't really count cause they were prefabricated blocks.

    I would love to get my hands on the far cry 2 editor.

    I think there are a few other editors i've tried but never really got into because i simply never really got into the game.

    Ignoring levels for console games that were unplayable because they were mapped out on graph paper...

    Doom was my first.

    Halo was my frist, but nothing I made in it was any good.

    I've made maps for Age of Mythology and Half Life 2, as well as tf2, thats it.

    The first non-3D game I made maps for was Commander Keen, and I had to write my own map editor for that.

    The first 3D game I started mapping for was Thief II, but I never completed any maps.

    If not, Team Fortress 2

    If your first sentence counts, then Tony Hawk 2.

    If not, then CS:S because I still to this day make maps for counter-strike source. >:3

    In order:
    Age of Empires 2, Age of Mythology (made some Hoodoos for this one), Warcraft III, Unreal Tournament 2004, Counter Strike: Source, Team Fortress 2.

    For university I will make a game using the Unity Engine, after X-Mas holiday :) Probably will post it when it's done/playable.

    I would say Team Fortress 2. I had some fun around basic level editors, but it just wasn't the same thing.
