    Default How did You start gaming?

    I would like to know how you started gaming. I think the stories would be interesting.

    Here's mine.

    When I was 6 I used to play two player games with my best friend. We played random games for a year, before mmos were a thing. Suddenly they started coming out. We played some RPGs but became Op as they wouldn't update fast enough. We found a little game called AAdventure Quest World's (not Adventure Quest). We played this for some time. Then the Right RuneScape came out. It was amazing and I got to lol 120 something.g without membership. After that he found a Sandbox called Roblox. We played it for some years and I even got my classmates to join.
    When I came to my friends house he showed me Half Life 2 on Steam. We played some FPS games. I bought MineCraft, and my best friend hated it. whilst looking for a free MineCraft for my phone I stumbled on GrowTopia.


    Most are blind to the truth.

    When I was a little kid, I loved toys and disney princesses, as most four year old girls did at my time. Then one Christmas, my parents got me this little gaming console that I loved. It had 12 games and I strived to beat my high scores. When I got a little older, I used to play games with my guy friends because at the time, they were the only others who played video games. As I grew into elementary school, I loved a wide range of games from the classic Mario to MMORPGs like Club Penguin. (Yes, it is an MMORPG.) As I grew even older, maybe halfway to three-quarters through elementary school, I quit Club Penguin and Webkinz etc. to play more games like Mario and Kirby and other slightly more mature/complex games. A few years ago, I had some friends that introduced me to Growtopia, and I fell in love with the game. I was really into the fact that it was pretty unique. Lately, I've played Minecraft, Growtopia (huehue), Clash of Clans (although I may quit soon x.x) and probably will start WOW, Sims, etc.

    So. I have a brother that is 4 years older than me (He is 19 now and doesn't play the game).
    He started playing the he was 16 or so ( I was 12 ) He is a super growtopia veteran, he played then there was 50 players online, and ATM costed 1-2 World Locks these days! Can you believe that !?
    He offered to play it with him but i disagreed with him hundreds of times and said this game is for 7 yo kids.
    But then I started playing it with him was super fun! He stopped playing about 2 months from my start, i was really sad, untill now i was desperate in growtopia waiting to find some true friends, which I never did, thats why i recently joined the forums...
    Thanks for reading.

    My parents play videogames for a few decades (they both have a gaming pc in their room and play FFXIV together) so it started a while back. I remember the PS1 in 2001/2, playing Driver, Crash Bandicoot, Spyro, etc. My very first MMO was Anarchy Online in 2003, I had great times there.

    EDIT : Almost forgot, my oldest memory is actually probably Gauntlet on our old Amiga in 99.

    My older brothers played games, so I played games.
    Played a lot of Smash Melee, and Metroid Prime 2 multplayer.
    Oh, and Mario and Luigi: Superstar Saga

    And I have a hard time trying to comprehend why people inset a capital letter in the middle of Minecraft. It just makes it look so wrong.

    I pressed Play.

    The first game I ever played was 007 on the Nintendo 64 when I was about...5 years old? I don't remember. Then I got a Playstation and started playing Spyro, Twisted Metal, Crash, some weird skating game, and Reel Fishing. From there I went to Nintendo DS. I binge played New Super Mario Bros, then went back to Playstation (wooo Diablo.)

    I play Playstation 4 games now cuz Playstation is lyfe.

    I was really young. My parents got me this console called a v-smile, which had toddler games. I was so interested in it, and I played it all day long.
    Then we took a huge step up and got a gamecube. I played kirby air ride and some other games on it, then one christmas we got a wii. We also played that a ton. Mainly SSBB. Then we got an xbox. At the time I was really into minecraft, and played the pe a ton. I used hex editor to put tnt into it and I blew up everything. I got minecraft for the xbox and was really entertained. Then I got a laptop and came absorbed into it. I was watching twitch and saw splatoon on it... So now I have a Wii U.
