Odyssey 2 (Pretty obscure, but I loved it for years...Pickaxe Pete!!!)
Decent computer today with 2 gig video card and 10 gigs of RAM...gets me by
Hi. 50 here.
First seriously obsessive computer game was Wizardry: Proving Grounds of the Mad Overlord for the Apple ][ (that's the cool old school way to type out Apple II because it looked like the logo). This was in 1981 at my college computer lab. They had one copy everyone shared. You'd load it up, give it back, and save on your own 5.25 floppy. Even that game had a hack - Identify item number 9 with your Bishop.
Major time spent with Infocom games too.
West of House
You are standing in an open field west of a white house, with a boarded front door.
There is a small mailbox here.
Anyone remember Akalabeth: World of Doom and what it became?
I think I've played practically every major single-player RPG, although I've passed on most MMOs, including WoW.
Get off my lawn.
Hi! First computer rpg game was advent on a CDC cyber 64 & zork on a pdp-11. At home I started with Pong, and later an apple II with a game called "temple of apshai" or something like that. Apparently I like dungeon crawlers!
The real question here is how do you feel when someone assumes you're 12 and tells you that you should have been around when D2 was first released.
lol, my kids are older than some of the folks who say stuff like that!
Fwiw, I played both D1 & D2 before release. :)
I was born in '48 (64) The wife & I started with Atari 64 (for the kids hehe) & still playin'. She is always playing the old unreal tournament, shootem up sam, etc. when not on d2, d3, or guild wars. waiting for gw2 8>)
Keep your eye out for Croper, & SeaHag (she picked it not me!)
Y'all have fun now!
Utopia and Night Stalker on Intellivision.
By the time we got the Nintendo after that, the number pads on both controllers were so worn out you had to almost punch them to get them to work. And the paint was peeling off the control pad because your hands would get so sweaty.
Oh. I wasn't trying to offend anyone. I was just reading that other thread and then next clicked on this one and I wondered if there was a double standard when it comes to age in gaming and gender in gaming.
I don't really have an opinion either way. Just curious what the forums think in light of that other thread blowing up.
Personally, I don't care about if someone I play with is young/old or girl/boy as long as they are fun. On the forums I do find that if someone posts their age or gaming experience I am more apt to listen to their opinion.
Anyway, did I mention Pong, Zork, Ultima, A Bard's Tale (original).
Home Pong sometime in the 70's
Vic 20, Commodore 64 then a 128D and finally an Amiga 1000 (Think I owned every amiga model)
PS1 and 2
Too many gaming PC's to name starting with the old 8086 or x86 if you prefer.
Definetely like PC gaming better to the consoles though.
51 here... been playing since Diablo 1. The first video game I remember playing was the venerable "Pong." Not the first, but the first that most people remember. I remember the Atari 2600 and the ill-fated Colecovision, too
Have been playing that for a while with two friends.
Was a long time ago man! Cool game ;)
Edit: 40 by the way (and already getting senile since I obviously forgot to anser the op's question.. lol!)

Ahh the good ole days of dice and paper and nothing else but your imagination. Man how did we survive without all of the technology we have today. :)
Barely. I think I was reading Asimov's Foundation Trilogy at the time and I remember being confused by this game and wondering if the two had anything to do with each other.
