The first game i ever played and kept playing was Age of Empires 1. But the first game that blew my mind was homeworld 1 back in 1999.

Probably Warcraft 2. A friend showed it to me back in 1999, I couldn't get enough.

Age of empires 1, or maybe Command and conquer red alert. Both equally awesome back in the day.

Or Sim City 2000.

Can't remember which I was addicted to first.

Tribes 1 easily. I still play Tribes 2 to this day. Everything else was dark and inside, tribes was bright and featured indoor and outdoor environments... just amazing, and that says nothing of the gameplay.

Doom 1, I have played at my parent's work, the computer technician let me play at lunch. Needless to say, I was begging them to buy me a desktop after.

Warcraft 2. That game pretty much defined my childhood.

It's hard to remember what the first one was..
I played consoles only for quite a while, so the first PC game that blew my mind was probably Age of Mythology. I don't think I had ever played an RTS before so that game was friggin awesome for me.
Stuff like Warcraft 2 was unfortunately before my time.

Doom.

Graphically, Doom 3 like 12 years later after playing the original. That game is still scary for me lol.

The editor was what really blew my mind.
