20, now 21.

I couldn't afford to build a decent rig so I just stayed on cheap consoles. After going to PC games, I'll never go back... except for the franchises like Gran Turismo and Final Fantasy, etc. that never reach PC. Without Emulators at least.

Very young. Wolf 3D and Command and Conquer 95 were the earliest games I have memories of. The sound track to C&C still gives me chills.

Ya i couldnt build until age 15, but now im strictly PC for life. I remember when my computer was first built i was wondering how i was going to play games on it, i still didnt grasp the concept of playing games on a computer tongue.gif

Also for your sig, en francais when there is a vowel as teh first letter of the word after the article you put l' (unless its pliral)
So your sig rig should be called l'intel rig or le rig d'intel ,if you even care

Seriously. I challenge all of you hardcore gamers to beat Oregon Trail on your 1st try, or 5th for that matter.
