Also, don't judge.
I was much easier to entertain back then. I have since bought SWBF 1 and 2 for the PC, and I've jacked the graphics and maps to 11. I don't play them much anymore, but I'll probably always have them, and once in a while I still go online to get pwned by grenade spam and lag-jedi.
I actually really did want Morrowind back when it released, but I was too young to actually buy it without permission which my parents never gave me. They thought PC gaming had died in the 90's. Since then, I've gotten the GOTY of Morrowind and I've downloaded and installed the Overhaul 2.0. I still play it, and I'm glad that I was never able to get it as a kid. If I'd played it then it would have gone way over my head and I'd probably never have picked it up again.

Star Wars: Battlefront, for the PS2.
Oh wow, I forgot about SWBF! Had so much fun on both 1 and 2.

Then I got the best of all consoles, the Mattel Intellivision with the Voice Synthesis Module and B17 Bomber
In high school I was playing around with TRS-80 machines running CP/M which was fun too.
Then I got a C64 with a datasette, could not afford a disk drive at the time.
Basically it has been all down hill since then.

There wasn't a single game that got me into gaming, but the NES made me a gamer. Got into the NES back in the 80s, and then got a SNES and loved it even more and that just solidified me being a gamer.
Same here. Been playing games since the age of 2 and it hasn't stopped yet I don't play as much as I used to though. Back in the day, I'd play anywhere from 4-8 hours a day...now I'm lucky if I play for an hour or two.
