    I've been playing SNES since I was 3. The first real game that I played on PC that wasn't really kid friendly was Doom/Doom 2 I guess I was 5 years old then? too long ago... I remember being able to beat Doom 2 when my father couldn't, he wasn't too happy that a 5/6 year old could to something he couldn't. good times...

    I'm currently 17.

    I started playing when Atari 2600 first came out, come to think of it I had a pong system first. I'm 29 now and I still play like crazy. Probably more now than when I was younger.

    I dont game but I do collect them. well over 1000 at last count. I started gaming before computers remember pong?, then I started with the TI-994A, Vic20,64, TRS-80, etc,ect, on the computer side of it and I too miss my tape drive(LOL). (I had concules too). At the time I had 100's of games for them all on tape. 20+ years or so later and after thousands of dollars the games today may look better and be more complex but the best gaming fun I ever had was over 20+ years ago. BTW I was Born in 1970

    43 here. Played through Doom III once already and now on a second run, kicking it up a notch or two. Been away from gaming for a while, took several levels to get my reflexes back, it's like riding a bike though. Didn't think the old man had it in him anymore.

    Cut my gaming teethe with classics like Pong on TV, later graduated to Wolfenstein 3D, Duke Nukem 1 &2 side scrollers. Doom 1,2, etc, Star Wars Dark Forces and Duke Nuklem 3D.

    First PC - Toshiba 1000 Laptop with 1 - 720k 3.5 Floppy / 768 Flash RAM / DOS 2.11 in ROM / 4" x 11" Blue and Green LCD NON-Backlit. I really miss that Laptop.

    I'll be 46 next month have been playing Video/Computer games since the days of Pong. I suspect I'll be playing for the rest of my life. I just hope I'm around long enough to see some really good VR.
