What's the game that made you say "Hey, this is fun. I wan't more."

For me, it's the original Diablo. I played other games before but I played them rather casually, with no real motivation to finish the game. But after Diablo, for almost every game that I play, if it has a single player campaign, I play to the finish.

So what's the game that got you started in the wonderful world of gaming? What lured you to the dark side?

well, it was back in 1979. (matanda na ako) i was so mesmerized with a video game console called PONG. its controllers consist of 2 paddles connected to a single slot. after Pong, the Atari 2600 (or atari VCS) followed.

And in the early 80s I was so amazed with the movie ELECTRIC DREAMS that I started pestering my mother to buy me an Atari 800XL and a Commodore 64....and from then on my fascination with computer games grew tremendously up to the present day (my adult years).

I currently own a PS2, an Xbox, 16 PC units (networking business), Gameboy Advance SP and a ton of games in my Nokia 6600.

I am waiting for the Sony PSP to be release :D

Before, I always thought that gaming was a waste of time, even though I grew up playing games, Atari, PC (PC-XT pa noon), game and watch, etc.

I stopped gaming for a long time, until ....

I open a Gaming Center.

That's when I started to enjoy Gaming again. Imagine that.

Hooked on Red Alert, then Counterstrike, then so on and so forth.

RPG games are my favorite! :)

What started my interest in this genre was Final Fantasy II and Legend of Zelda.

From then on, I would try to finish all the rpg games that I can get my hands on :D . . . starting from SNES until Playstation I. I have several memory cards of saved games of all the RPGs I have finished in PS I.

After PS I, I shifted to PC games. Got hooked with NeverwinterNights and multiplayer games like the Warcraft and Command & Conquer Series.

Then came Ragnarok . . . been playing it ever since, hehe :D

I started when my father brought me a game&watch with the game Chef.

Then progressed thru galaxians, pacman, loderunner, bomberman.

Then on to famicoms, sega saturns, playstations, and pc games.

I was born a gamer, started when I was about 5 with famicom games, can't remember the title but the game that really got me going was Final Fantasy VII - nothing beats it on my list. I'm currently waiting for the release of Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children on DVD. Hopefully they'll release it in summer 2005. ARGH! I just hope that there'll be no delays of schedule. :)
