    Ok guys! What was the one game that brought you into the world of PC gaming? And what PC did you start with? ( I don't mean your first game you played, The game that attracted you gaming ).
    For me it was Half Life 1 in my Desktop with a windows XP.

    I started off on Minecraft with a group of friends of mine... I first was on a Windows desktop till it broke and a month later went to a Apple MacBook.

    In fact I was playing a series of games on my first computer. I was playing games like Super Mario, Pac-Man, the first Need for Speed and many others. I think the first computer that I had was a Pentium 3 but I can't remember what version of Windows I had at that time.

    I started with a game called Conflict Desert Storm. This was the first game I installed on my PC, and I didn't know a lot about computers and games back then, I remember deleting all the controls and my mother fixing it for me :smile:. After that I started playing Counter Strike 1.6. My computer was Pentium 4, with Windows XP.

    I think it was various flash games, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, and Counter Strike. It was nostalgic remembering that I knew no other games other than Vice City so I spent so much time playing the game and wandering in the city without even understanding what the objectives are. I had fun playing Counter Strike even if it was only against bots most of the time. I only ever play against other players if I am in an internet cafe. We didn't have the fastest internet connection so I stuck to borrowing CD installer of games or just playing flash games.

    It really was MIneCraft. My daughter found she liked the game play better. Now with seam online gaming has become the only gaming we do except for phone apps. I really think PC gaming is the wave of the future....sorry consoles! :(

    That was only one game that made me starting playing games as an addict, and that game was Minecraft. I started slow, with one game but in a few months, I had already 10 games in my PC. I remember this because my PC was slowing down all the time and one friend told me to delete some of my games to boost my PC.

    I was so young when I started playing on my computer. I can't clearly remember the games that got me into this world. I think that it was Starcraft, my uncle gave it to me as a gift and I was so excited to play it, but my mom didn't want me to play very often, she said that 45 minutes to play Starcraft was alright, but she was wrong, it wasn't enough so I played it without her permission :emoji_laughing:

    I think Daytona was my first PC game. Then came Raibow Six, Test Drive, among others.

    My friend in elementary school brought me to a computer shop after class one day. First 2 games he showed me was Counter Strike 1.6 and Diablo 2. The shop also had games like Warcraft 3, Starcraft, Battle Realms, and Ragnarok Online. But Diablo 2 was the game that caught my attention and I instantly got addicted to it. Growing up without a lot of money, I could only afford 30 minutes (an hour on a good day) to rent the PC in the shops, and if you've played Diablo 2, you know 30 minutes of playing isn't even enough to get to any of the objectives. I still play Diablo 2 today just for nostalgia's sake.

    The game that I start me in the world of pc I think it was Age of Empires II, everything started at a very early age where my curiosity dominated me and just wanted to explore everything I found, it was there when I went to a cybercafe and I see a man playing with his teammates and i was captivated, from that moment all change.

    The first game I started playing on a PC was Dune. I think it was a Windows 98 PC. I slept till very late playing that game. By that time I didn't prefer PC over consoles like Sega Genesis or NES, and later SNES. After that I started playing mostly real time strategy games, like Age of Empires and Starcraft 1.

    That was a long time ago, but recently I've been playing the old PSX and PSX2 games on my PC with an emulator.

    My friend introduced me to Tiberian Sun and that's the begining of my gaming life. I was hooked. The graphics was a complete 180° and the game play is ever changing. No patterns to memorize, a completely random game.

    The one that got me started and sucked me in was Skyrim. It was one of the very first games I bought, I believe, together with Fallout 3, and it's the game that convinced me that PC gaming was straight up amazing. I kept hearing about it everywhere and I wanted to find out what the whole buzz was about.
    I do still think it is one of the best PC games you could possibly get started with. It's not just about the game itself, but mostly about its community. It really shows what gamers are capable of, and it also gives you one of the finest tastes of PC modding at work.

    First ever game that did it for me was Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. I didn't have a console at the time (and nobody ever played on a PC) but we only had a Nintendo Wii and PS2 as our consoles, this must've been 2007 when the game released. So my Dad bought it for me on PC, since then, I've been obsessed with gaming and moved onto my Xbox 360 and Xbox One, and back to PC gaming!

    Back around 2001 during summer I first got to experience a computer.

    That game I vividly remember was Microsoft Flight Simulator 2000 with it being on a CD-Disk. The game came with this massive book with a Concorde on the front and was rather interesting.

    I also remember playing I believe some random Delta Force shooter game as well which was also really fun.

    Good ol' Nostalgia.

    I think mine was Red Alert. I remembered using a CD to play this game. I also used to play Heroes: Might and Magic. Those were great times.

    It would be Command and Conquer: Generals. I just love the singe player story and how the game can be modded. I've been playing this game since I was a kid and I'm still playing until now. I hope they release a new generals game.

    I was at a friends house and we were playing need for speed on PC. And I thought it was great until he showed me Quake 2 and multiplayer. He had a local lan setup with 3 computers. Once I tried it I was hooked on PC for life. :D
