    Just post how many years you've been playing games. I've been playing for about ten years, and I'm 15.

    Had my first computer about 10 years ago, but I had a SNES before that, so probably around 10 or 11 years.

    started with C64 ...
    then we got 286 and Atlantis was my world, i didnt know english that time, i had 1 hour per week and i used to load my brother's saves and mess around and see places.

    and i used to play Kings Bounty (Kb.exe) too, now i know it was RPG!

    after that, i became addicted to diskette games ... wow, what an age it was.
    where are those games? shit we have today, pure shit.

    then everyone was having NES and MegaDrive and PSone, but i had just my PC, using emulators to play all those great games, sure, 5years later.

    the story is so long.
