I remember playing all kinds of games on my old commodore 64, but I think my first favorite PC games were dune 2 and wolfenstein 3d.

Some time in the 80s it woulda been - on the Amstrad CPC 464 (6128).. what game though, no idea. It could've been Fruity Fred, or possibly Boulderdash. Maybe even Snake. But yeah... it was wicked. As for PC games, couldn't tell you. My family didn't get a PC until '94, so by then games were already progressing pretty fast. Used to go around to my friends places and play on the awesome power of the Amiga 500 though... man that system ruled.

Ridiculous DOES not have an 'e' in it. It comes from "ridicule" and has less than nothing to do with the colour red.

Hmm... Oregon Trail on an Apple IIe at school, that was a long time ago. But I think some of the very first (besides my Atari 2600) were on my cousin's Atari 520ST (or something like that). There was a Ninja fighting game. There was also a game where you had to cut tree limbs away from power lines and dig up roots to keep them from getting into the subway.

And I cant forget Donkey Kong on the Commodore VIC20 or Squish'em Sam on the Intellivision

Ive been playing games since I was like 2

The first IBM PC games I played were on our first DOS\Windows computer in 1994. It was a Packard Bell 33Mhz with 4mb of ram and a 1x CDROM. My brother bought Nascar Racing, Seal Team, Bureau 13 (i bought this again recently, great game), Connon Fodder and Doom Shareware. The computer came with Megarace too... wow that game sucked

It would have been 'Lemonade' on an Apple II.

I thought about it and the first game I probably played was Zork. God I hated that blasted game. I probably spent at least 30-40 hours on it and was probably just running around in circles.

Mine was Pong, on the 2600. After that, colour gaming on the C64 was amazing. After that was the original GameBoy. Then to the NES. From there i progressed to the apple II, then i moved on to the SNES, moved on up to the 286, then the 386, then the 486. I then got the Pocket GB, N64, Colour GB, Pentium 2 500mhz, GBA, GCN, P4 2.8Ghz. I'm now saving for my next rig (FX53, SLI 6800U's, Watercooling. From there i want to mod the case to include a spot to include an air conditioner to blow even colder air into the case)
