For me it was Spyro the Dragon on my friends PS1. It was a game that was as fun to watch as to play.
What was the game that caused your gaming addiction to begin?

Doom did me in! The wife had one of those cheapo plastic chairs at the computer, since no one really used it much. I was laid off for a few weeks, and made the horrible mistake of downloading the DOOM Demo.( It took over 8 hours to download a few MBs!) As soon as I got the hang of that game, I had to have it! I also broke the back out of two or three of those chairs before we figured out to get a real desk chair.
Now that I'm retired, I am a gaming fanatic.

I bought an IBM XT and it came with a magazine subscription. The magazine came every two months and included a 5-1/4" disk from a company called Big Blue. The first disk I got contained a couple of computer programs and a game called Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy. While I liked playing the game, it was text based and a bit awkward to play, but I did play it and it got me interested in playing games on a computer, but I wasn't all that hooked. The game that got me hooked was a few years later after I got a PC with an Intel 80286 processor, VGA card and a whopping 20 meg hard drive loaded with Windows 3.0. The game was Hard Nova. Still play it using a DOS emulator.
