    I guess I'm old but the minute I played the Atari at a friend's house I was hooked.. Got the Game Boy + Mario Land and it was on from there!

    Overwatch haha, the game made me buy a whole new computer and a new computer screen.

    I have been playing other games on my wii u/ nintendo 3DS/ nitendo switch, but now i'm hooked up at playing Overwatch.

    Started back in the Atari 2600 days. River Raid was probably the first game I played from my own console but the first one I saw was Pac-Man at my cousin's house. Played a lot of Game & Watch handheld after that then Super Mario for NES. A lot of sidescrollers like Contra, Mega Man, and Castlevania filled my formative years. My attention shifted to comicbooks during the early 90s but got hooked during the mid/late 90s when I built my first PC and fell in love again with gaming with the likes of Diablo, StarCraft, Age of Empires, the first two Fallout games, and the Black Isle CRPGs. From then on, I stayed mostly in the PC gaming space having built several rigs throughout the years.

    I can't really tell I'm a gamer.\, but the first game I really liked was World of Warcraft (still playing it) and then Dota 2 :)

    I may be no gamer, but I can write a simple game in Unity. You can too! Google "Project Tiny, Instant Games, Unity". it is a great way to start and publish web based games in places like Facebook. I added laser firing to a some sample code and came up with this.

    Idk. It's been so long. It's either mario kart, or 007. I might be glancing over something. Pacman and all the arcade games was where it was also.
