Uhm, it could be some arcade of the golden age (Ghosts'n Goblins? Exed Exes? Black Tiger? Commando? Choplifter?), or maybe Advanced Dungeons & Dragons for the Intellivision. Surely the first two PC games I saw and played were "The Amazing Spider-Man" (on an Olivetti Prodest PC1, an IBM XT-clone) and the original Prince of Persia on a 10 MHz 80286 (an Olivetti PC again). Aaaaaah, those were the days....

First i played i think it was for my brothers Amstrad (don't know the specific model). I believe the game was called Terrahawk (not the tv show). Then it was on the various games on the Atari XL and XE.

When i became a hardcore gamer was with the Commodore 64. I used to play that for hours on end, until my brother would come in and have a go and manage to break a joystick after a few goes. The amount of joysticks we went through. Luckly in them days you could go pick one up from a car boot for 50p and another 10 games for a quid.

I don't exactly remember the first, but it was a string of Apogee and Sierra shareware titles that got me started - Commander Keen, King's Quest, Raptor: Call of the Shadows, Rise of the Triad.

I moved on from that to games like Doom and Wolfenstein 3D, the original Duke Nukem, Tie Fighter and X-Wing.

What?! The Commodore 64 had both a tape drive (you could use any old cassette player - although it'd take a good 5 minutes to save/load a program) and a floppy drive! I remember typing in programs (from Ahoy! magazine, for example! :D ), but you could always save 'em. :)

Yeah, but if you didn't *have* the tape drive, or floppy drive at the time....LOL

The first game I remember playing was 'KC Munchkin', which was clearly a Pac-Man rip-off for the Philips Videopac G7000 console (http://computermuseu...rands/g7000.htm) - I wanted an Atari VCS 2600 for Christmas, and I got this piece of crap instead.

I got my first 'proper' computer in '82 - a Sinclair Spectrum with a huge 16Kb of RAM! Finally, the ecstacy of Jet Set Willy...

Age of Empires 2.

I loved that game. Once I realised you could network the bugger together I was set on the path to being an IT nerd :p
