    Some have had the privilege of seeing this world born.

    My first serious contact with the game was in an arcade machine called Star wars, being impressed with its graphics vector consisted prelude of what was to come with graphics 3D in 1982.

    But literally respond, my first game in a personal computer was a game scroll horizontally and two colors of spacecraft and unknown name in a dragon computer in a basic programing course.

    After which on my hands my first personal computer Amstrad 464 CPC which i made a collection around of 300 games, is part of my collection keep on that perfect run as others spectrums and consoles.

    From that time until today I have seen everything and want to see more :D

    For me it was Worms Armageddon, i joined a Rope Race first time and didn't have a clue what it was, then i saw these guys roping around and it was amazing.

    Online Worms was SO different to playing it on the Dream Cast with my friends, after i played it online i could own them all so easily, things you might discover one a time offline were shown to you online cause so many people played it.

    After that, when i got a PC that could play it, i downloaded Enemy Territory and then i bought Battlefield 2.

    First started off on an Amstrad CPC 464 when i was about 6 or 7, think the first proper game i payed was Dizzy, followed by most of the others in the series then Cybernoid and Exolon, could play them for hours.

    Then came the Amiga 500, played stuff like Jaguar XJ220, Blade Warrior, Arnie, Rainbow Islands and Zool. Blade Warrior for me is still one of the most atmospheric and immersive games there is.

    When we finally got a family pc, about the first thing i played was the Unreal Tournament demo, which i was hooked on. It was such a massive leap graphics wise and a different gameplay style to anything on Amiga or Amstrad. I'd say thats the game that got me rooted into PC gaming.
