My friend Dave linked me to the demo pre-release in 1999 or 2000 when i got my first PC. Shortly after i got a broadband cable connection and within 2 months he bought me the game for my birthday. I was hooked. Karen too. She bought a pc and a router several months later cause we we're getting tired of sharing the game. We argued about peak server times lol. back then most decent servers were full. Good ones were impossible to get into during prime time. We had a 60+ member team for years. Awesome times there AND here. That's why i got the tattoo, this game has been a big part of mine and karens life, together.

DOOM 1/2 + tons of maps since 1994. It is the best game ever made.

Q1 since 1996 right after tech demo QTest (Feb 1996) and later after shareware/full was released (June 1996). Tech demo was just a few maps with no sound. There was no real test/demo before full release, if i remember correctly.

Q2 since December 1997, i really liked this game, much more than Q1 single player and it also was the first game to utilize 3D acceleration. I bought 3dfx Voodoo 1 because of Q2 and it made such a difference it was almost unreal. At that time i lost my interest in Quake 1 almost completely.

Q3 since early March 1999, after IHV release was leaked out by ATi. It happened on weekend before planned Daikatana demo, so i wonder if this leak was not maybe intentional to divert public attention from Romero's new game to Q3. IHV was not really playable, but people did experiment with few servers and fixed maps with manually added items/weapons. Then Q3Test was released on April 24, 1999. It had 2 maps q3dm7 and q3dm17, and game was fully playable and big success even before Q3 was finished in December 1999.

2007(damn I feel like a noob). Apoc put it on my computer one night and I actually got mad at him cause I said I would never play it and it was just taking up hd space and memory that I needed. He told me to shut up and try it. I have been hooked ever since. Vogon was second (and last) server I ever played on.

I played Q3test when it became available, but I didn't actually buy Q3 until 2001. Before that I was still doing Quake 2 matches for about 8 months and before that KQP for Quake which I played for about 5 years.

i played Doom 1-2 a few times at friends houses as a kid. played quake 1 at a friends house, blown away. my parents finally got a computer like 97-98 i think, i must have been 12. a friend gave me quake 2.. played the hell out of it (in software mode lol), it was the first game i ever played online. also the soundtrack got me into heavy music as i was completely sheltered as a kid.

not exactly sure when i first played q3a, but 2008 i installed it on my roomates pc and the first server to come up on the list was vogon - anarchy. came back early this year. q2 - 3 are prolly the only pc games ive ever played online haha
