    Nearly 20 years... First PC game was a bootleg copy of a game called "streetrod" where you bought, sold, raced, and tricked out cars from the 60's/70's. The game ran on DOS, lawl. I actually found it about 10yrs ago and was able to get it to run using compatibility mode, but I've lost it in the many dead hard drives since. I used to play Captain Keen, Jump Man (or jumper man) and I LOVED the King's Quest games. TY for the nostalgia... I miss being a kid :frown:

    Edit: Found some gameplay on Youtube:

    Probably around 14 years for me, which was about when i was 4 or 5. My dad built me my own computer. My first game was either Quake 2 or Duke Nukem 3D. I can't remember which one i played first, but i played them all the time. I remember i was using Windows 98 when i first started playing games. My favourite game i played was Redneck Rampage. That game was hilarious. I lived out in the country, so any multiplayer was done at our house doing LAN parties. Used to play Lithium Mod for Quake 2 and Quake 3.

    ~15-16 years. First PC game I remember is some motorcycle racing game and then the classic OREGON TRAIL 3.

    Outside of that I didn't get into "real" PC games until 2005 when I got Counter Strike: Condition Zero.

    I started when I was about 3 years old, playing Puzzle games and Chess. At about 5 I was into GameBoy and Consoles.

    I think my first PC game was Age of Empires 2, I was 6 or 7 I think. Moved onto Warcraft 3 a few years later.

      I would say around 20 years. I use to play the crap out of SimAnt and Dyno Park Tycoon, I also played the early Microsoft Flight Sims that were space and looked horrible.

      I would have to say around 15 - 20 years.

      The first PC game I ever played was Quest for Glory. Which led me onto Space Quest, Kings Quest, and so on. I continued to fall further down the virtual rabbit hole from there.

      Sierra was epic.

      About 20 years here too I think, it's hard to remember. The first games I remember playing were Lemmings and Caveman on DOS and Windows 3.1 on a computer where my parents worked, which was the only one any of us had access to at the time. Later Microsoft Flight Simulator when my dad got a home PC and a joystick. Then after that Doom, Duke Nukem, Quake, Heretic, Kings Quest V, etc. I picked up on Counter Strike at cyber cafes when they were still numerous in our area, then purchased it as soon as it was available for retail sale. First MMO was Asheron's Call in year 2000 :razz:

        Some of my first games: Oregon Trail, Sim Life, Sim Farm, Sim City 2000, Sim Copter, Doom, Warcraft 1, Duke Nukem, Wolfenstein 3D, Leisure Suit Larry

        My first game that I played online and competitively was Tribes 1 and years later when RTCW was released I jumped to that.
