Possibly already done before, if not....

How did you get into gaming, and when was it?

Myself, I started when I was around 9, I started playing Duke Nukem and Doom and I loved it. Grew on me.

Also, I've been using computers since I was around 7 and I haven't bothered with consoles.

I started playing Sonic on my Megadrive when I was about 5/6. I got addicted to those games :p

Then I played Doom on PC a few years later (someone had got it for my dad as a present), and then more games followed. Mostly I was playing Red Alert, and went through a C & C phase. Then it just kept going from there :)

When I was much younger I played my first video game, the original Wolfenstein 3D, which I believe was released in 1992. I was instantly hooked, and from there moved onto the original SEGA, PlayStation, and then back to computers (and stuck there) for Cossacks, CnC and Diablo/2/LoD.

First proper game I played was an ancient version of Flight Simulator. Although the Elite Force series is what got me seriously into gaming.

Sonic for me too, I’d spend a lot of time round at my friend’s house playing Sonic 3 on the ol' Mega Drive. My parents weren't willing to shell out on buying a Mega drive for myself, so I had no choice but try and play some games on the only machine available to me, my old PC. I use to play classics like Halloween Harry, Dangerous Dave, Commander Keen and the like. Got seriously into gaming around the time of Red Alert and Doom, if I remember correctly…
