I used to play that game on the Macs in sixth grade, and a few years ago I found the original for PC for insanely cheap and had to buy it. I love that thing.

Other than that, I haven't had much time to play games, so I'm still working on the ones I bought a year ago (Half-Life 2 and Sims 2, which admittedly you can play forever) and Myst IV.

I'm curious about HL2 Episode One - how'd it turn out?

I'm a fan of the HL series, but I've been boycotting Valve somewhat since I accidentally lost my Steam password - with which of course all my licenses went out the window irrecoverably :?

I love the gears of war game, I'm in the top ten percent with online ranking, woot. I also get to enjoy those two games on an hdtv! ^_^ Luckily me, I'm not a fan boy so I get to enjoy all great games on every system. I don't understand these fanboys, I've loved every video game system I've owned and the games that came out for them, and I've bought systems from microsoft, sony, sega, nintendo, neo geo, etc.. some systems if I bought I would of thought different, like jaguar and virtual boy

Well there's platform fanboys like me who live under the banner of "PC only and forever", but I for one at least have justification - since hardly any game in my top list of favorites has ever been even ported to a console, let alone were console-specific (largely by virtue of it being physically impossible) :P

First game a.k.a. Holy Crap Some of You are Old:

One of these two, I'm not sure which came first:
- Choplifter on my grandmother's Apple IIe. ][e? Whatever. There was some quasi-educational game too, but I always played Choplifter anyway.
- Frog Bog or this goofy jungle math game on the Intellivision. (It may just have been called "Math Fun." Woohoo.) Frog Bog was a great argument-starter game. Sigh.

Both of those were in the age 4-5 bracket somewhere, in the early '80s. Oh, when video game systems had fake wood paneling.

Currently hypnotized by ... er, I mean playing Zelda: Twilight Princess (although, I'm close to finishing it ... just finishing up getting the last few heart containers I can. ) :P

After this, I also picked up Steambot Chronicles, and will probably play it next. It does look interesting, in a FMA-ish way. More on this one once I start it. :wink:

First game was something on an Apple. Maybe Aztec Challenge or Frogger.

Well, after just playing a bit of it, I can definately say it holds up to the Half Life franchise, some neat new additions and lots of the good old physics puzzles and badass action. Definately worth checking out imo ( also, ep 2 looks even better O: )

As for first game, I'm gonna have to say it was either math munchers/math blaster (at school) or The Incredible Machine. Though I also vaguely remember some sort of apple art program dealie, with stamps and shit. Can't recall the name though.

First game: Jeopardy! on the Apple IIe. My brother and I played and just yelled to my dad for the answers. Oh, and the third player was always an old lady named Fay.

Fay haunts me. D:

My first games, aside from arcade games, were a bunch of simple Russian games (they probably have Western equivalents) on a Russian machine called "Vector", which used tapes and had 64kb RAM. :D

After than I had an Atari with 2MB RAM where I played a lot of great games, most ported from PC, including my favorite Silent Service II.
