    I started off playing Wolfenstien 3D. I never had the chance to play Doom back in those days because my mom would not let me play it (blood/gore/etc). I soon got into Lucas Arts' X-wing and then later, Tie Fighter - still my favourite simulator. I played the heck out of those games until my family got rid of our computer (our computer was given to my dad for work purposes and after my dad switched job sites, we had to give it back). I got back into PC Gaming when my friend got the first Rainbow Six. It was so amazing to me that I became obsessed with getting a new computer in order to play such new games, which I never got until about 2001/2002. Now I'm married and living on my own, so I can buy what I want. :rolleyes:

    Yes! That game was awesome, given it came in a freaking cereal box.

    A real PC?

    Well, the one that came free with Windows 95.

    The first real game I remember, maybe the Fallout demo.

    Half-Life 2. Yeah I got started late. I try to play some of the classics though to see what I missed. Currently playing Deus Ex and Warcraft 3.

    *Although I did play Oregon Trail down at the library.
