    Re: First time you were exposed to games

    I was born in 88. First game I played that got me hooked anyway was quake1 online (quakeworld) then from there quake2. Loved the mods people created in quake2 such as railwarz ctf (with an offhand laser hook that send you flying 1000 mph. Had to be quick and accurate to hit someone) and weapons of destruction.

    Re: First time you were exposed to games

    Being a girlie I've never really been into gaming, but in the late 70's we did have Pong, which we all thought was amazing; then, in the early 80's we got a Sinclair Spectrum and couldn't believe just how incredible the graphics were lol

    We had a Coleco Telstar. It had three games. Hockey, tennis and handball. The games were all pretty much the same. Bat the ball from one side to the other. It was fun though.

    Re: First time you were exposed to games

    I went backwards. I was introduced to the NES as a young child around the age of 2. I grew up and by 7 I was playing Atari at the grandparent's place. E.T. was and still remains the worst game ever created.

    Then I got a little older and had a myriad of them, from the SNES through to the PS2 era. N64, PSX, Gameboy (classic, colour, advance), PS2, Gamecube, XBOX (the original 50 pound mass of computer hardware). I went 50/50 with my dad to buy the 360 when it was still a $500 system, played it for a month or two and never got to touch it again. Didn't wind up getting a PS3, wife has a Wii. Have yet to jump on the console bandwagon due to price constraints but I think I might pick up a PS4 and WiiU. I'm still not sold on the XBONE.

    Cool Re: First time you were exposed to games

    My first exposure to video games was Pac-Man on my cousin's Atari system. I remember he was having trouble with another game, probably space invaders. The fire button was not responding well. After a quick look down the hall to make sure no adults were near, he opened up the joystick and put a fresh scrap of paper between the contacts on the board and the membrane on the bottom of the switch. I picked up the old scrap of paper and was fascinated by being able to feel that it had been smashed even thinner.

    So, first game and first hack repair from the same event.

    Re: First time you were exposed to games

    I wasn't allowed to have computer/videogames but since the mid/late 80's I was exposed to them at most friends places. Gameboy, NES, MS-Dos Games, Amiga 500, Atari 2600, Atari ST, SNES, these Nintendo LCD video games and so on..... good times^^

    Re: First time you were exposed to games

    I remember starting off on an old Ateri, maybe a mastersystem? I can't recall much about it now, other than sitting in a basement playing some ninja game and star wars game. Then, I stopped for a few years until I found my self on a NES/SNES, Sega and Sega Genesis. That's where I really got addicted, found my self exploring the worlds of RPGs, the first Final Fantasy's, the Zelda's, and there went my childhood, sucked into the vortex of pixels and fantasy's, lol.

    And then game the Gameboy, the old black and white things, haha, I remember hiding mine at night in my bed so I could play it after my mother tucked me in. Man that was hard trying to play a black and white game, in the middle of the night with nothing but the faint glow of the outside lights shining in the window to light up my screen, all the while praying I wouldn't get caught.

    Good times..
