    I remember playing games for about as long as I've lived, games has always been a part of my life but it wasn't until I tried Final Fantasy VII at a convention that my mind was completely blown away. I played for about 10 minutes and I knew right away that I had to buy that game upon release so I started saving money in every single way I could.
    I could not have been more proud when I finally had saved up all the money I needed to buy the game, the first game I bought with my own cash.
    And that was also the game that made me realize that yes, this is a hobby that is gonna be a part of me and my life forever.

    I'm not really sure to be honest. My first proper videogame experience was playing a playstation 2 when I was 9. I think the first game I played was the Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets lol it was a lame game, but of course I loved it since I was a Potter fan.
    I think the moment where I felt like a legitimate gamer was when I was playing either Medal of Honor: Frontline (still live by that game today)
    or Sly Cooper (because I just had so much fun playing it)

    I started playing games when family home computer was a fad back then at 1990s+, it was super mario! Then 1996+ kicked in SEGA was out - Sonic was my game. Lol

    Got hooked to the gaming world when I was at HS, a game FFVIII was recommended by a friend. I wasnt that into rpgs that time, but the story plot and game itself drawn me in. Every weekend my friends would hangout at my place, and play til 10pm, sometimes after class last day of school.

    That's difficult. My Mom only let me play retro games at first, so Donkey Kong or Pac-Man probably.
    Now i just play shooter games and either get my ass kicked or kick other peoples asses. Or i play singleplayer games

    I grew up as a gamer, so I have noooo idea. The thing I watched my parents play the most as an awkward toddler was probably Morrowind, so if anything I'd say that.

    Kingdom Hearts II I think. It was the first game that I ever fully played through. I used to rush home to play it every day.

    I have always played games so it's hard to say. But I guess I started thinking myself as gamer after Dragon Age Origins so that :)

    Err thats hard.... probably Super Mario bros for NES & Sonic the hedgehog for Sega Megadrive for console gaming they were my first...but ive always been particial to arcade gaming, hence Pacman, Tekken and streetfighter were the first things i played in that sense.

    Tetris and pong don't count right? cause they would be first then.

    If anything I'd say DDR (The original, Max, Extreme, Supernova, etc.) was my obsession when I was in elementary/middle school and I did dedicate a lot of time to mastering some step charts and trying to unlock new songs, before school & sports happened...and now my PS2 is broken and I can't play it anymore :'(

    Now it's just Disney Tsum Tsum and Pokemon Go, but I'm a very very casual, when-i'm-feeling-bored kind of gamer. Except if we're talking outdoor physical games like Capture the Chicken. I will crush you. haha.
