    lol but srsly I started on Wolfenstein 3D at 7 or 8. Didn't get a Pentium PC that could run Doom smoothly until about 2 years after that. In that interim, the screenshot of a demon on the back of the retail box SCARED THE SHIT OUTTA ME SOMETHING FIERCE. Lol, it wasn't even the big bad Cyberdemon, just a Baron of Hell. When I finally got to play the demo for real, beating the Baron of Hell endbosses was like......such catharsis. I overcame my fears! lol

    I didn't like Doom as much as Descent though. OMFG, anyone remember Descent?! THAT was the Pentium powered FPS game that blew my socks off. Oh god they need to bring back that series. That crazy 360 degree 3D level design! Shooting robots with lasers! I wonder if all these old parents thumping their chests about MY KIDS WILL NEVER on Morning Joe would let their kids shoot robots with lasers.

      descent took over our math lab in HS.

      before that, though....Rise of the Triad.

      I think descent was the last game i had any appreciable skill in whatsoever.

      before that I played Shadow of the Beast and Lemmings on my Amiga....and before that was The Dallas Quest on my TRS-80 :)

      If only Michael Phelps hadn't smoked that pot...imagine what he could have accomplished with motivation and good lung capacity.
