What Was Your First Online Gaming Experience?
« on: December 21, 2005, 12:00:25 pm »
My first was trying to play Alien vs Predator.
I got one game against one opponent and it was as laggy as hell. >:(

The game that really got me into online gaming was Medal of Honour Allied Assault.
Even with a 56k it was fun. ;D

Erm... maybe... Battlefield Vietnam? There might've been something earlier but... I'll go check. My old CD folder. Right now.

Half-Life.  After that came Counter Strike and I got hooked for a good while.

Oh yeah, now I remember that my dad had a CD of Quake III Arena, I played multiplayer on that. Not much, but it was fun. One of my earlier multiplayer experience was playing coop on LAN with my brothers and sister on Ultimate Doom. Earlier than even that, I played Gauntlet with my mom on the NES, when I was like five.  ;D

The original Combat Flight Simulator. Man, that was awesome! Shooting down people online in huge dogfights! I dont know why Microsoft didnt include online into Combat Flight Simulator 3. Maybe they'll put it in the 4th one?

Command&Conquer: Tiberian Sun was my very first online game experience. I dialled up my mate on the other side of town and we played some C&C.
But my first online multiplayer game was Counter Strike, back at v1.3

Don't laugh, but it was Burnout 3. I'm only 15, cut me some slack. The first time I played Pong was on a web browser.

It was either Unreal Tournament when we tried to go online after like a year of single player matches with bots... or Ragnarok Online.
This was around '97 or  '98. We got an old Windows 95 from someone, and a horrible dialup connection.
They charged us huge fees if we went over our 120 hours/month limit.
We always ended up going over it of course. First computer and all, and first time any of us had actually been 'online'.

Nice extra 200 bucks usually tagged onto the bottom of the bill sometimes. Lame.


Uh... oh, yeah. It took me a bit to remember, but I'm certain now that I played Unreal Tournament first. I remember we had a very badly made graphics card. Terrible slowdown, and of course, terrible lag.
You'd shoot and it'd take like five to ten seconds to hit anything. We had to train ourselves to play with the lag, shoot where players might have been five seconds ahead of time. I swear it made me mildly psychic, much like Ed Glosser.
We used that computer for years before finding out there had been a crack slowly growing down the motherboard. Nobody could figure that one out...

HOLY CRAP!

How could I forget about StarCraft!! They should take away my gamer card for that!

My friends and I used to play StarCraft religiously.... granted we were ten... but it was amazing none the less!


Anyone here play Tribes? Gosh... that was another amazing game...

My first on-line gaming Experience would be MegaWars I on Compuserve back in the mid 80's.  Connecting on my old C64 with a 300Baud modem, the space combat game featured state of the art ASCII character graphics   ;) and only charged $6 bucks an hour (!)

BTW - This is my first post, great podcasts Steve, I've been enjoying your shows for a few months now.   I also think we've got a lot of gaming experience in common.   Keep up the good work.

Starcraft all the way. I played agaist a friend of mine who was an extremely skilled Protoss player. I was on my merry way, building bunkers and missile towers, while he was building a super-efficient base aimed at, you guessed it, carriers. By the time I made my way to the center of the map, he had a full force of carriers cloaked with Arbitors. He murdered me. Though, it took a really long time to do so. I had Goliaths and missile towers up the wazoo, and he lost a few ships getting to my base. It was fun though.

Not counting 1 or 2 direct-connections by IP over 28.8 modems playing Ultimate DooM, it was my first semester of college when someone gave me Quake to try.  It had recently come out, so the community was still pretty small and many people knew each other when I joined it in September or October of 1996.

Roughly 4 years later, I briefly stepped back into the real world.  Just long enough to buy Unreal Tournament  ;D

The first regular online game experience I had was Doom on co-op mode.  I can still remember the day my friend was being a dink and taking pot shots on me when we're supposed to be on the same team, so I gave him an "accidental" face full of BFG nuke-age :).  Never got to play a good co op FPS with a friend until Halo waaaaaay later on, though.


My first actual decently invested and played online experience was Quake Team Fortress (the ORIGINAL one, not HL TFC).  We played this over Quake World via the Quakespy program (which would later become... *gasp* Gamespy!).  Ah knifing spies, concussion grenading up into the sniper nest to infect all their sharp shooters with anthrax, holding onto a capture lead despirately, those were the good old days.


Another bit of fun historical fact:  Action Quake 2 was made by some of the people who would go on and make the most played FPS in the world, Counter Strike.  Action Quake 2 was a helluva lot of fun at the time for multi player, and I invested time in it as well.

As for CS, I can remember watching that one "grow up" too.  I can remember actually corresponding via with one of the main modders (Gooseman I think) and suggesting a cheap on cost sniper rifle for when things are going bad for a team, and I can remember him writting back and saying "That's a good idea!".  Next beta patch of Counter Strike had the Scout, and its my favorite gun in CS for sentimental reasons :)

I don't know if it counts as "online" but at computer camp we had a LAN party of Marathon. I realized right then and there... that I suck at FPSes and that should a rocket launcer ever enter my hands, I and somebody else would die within 10 seconds.

I'm bored at the mo so I thought I resurrect an old topic, this one still has a little left to give I think.

I thought back to my best multiplayer experience the other day, 4 player Perfect Dark on the N64 with a load of hard bots. It may not have be online but it sure was fun. Good times. :D

Mine was subspace, I found it shortly after getting my first 28.8 modem, I still play it from time to time, but back then there were only 4 different ships, I even bought the box when it was released on CD :)

Recognize that custom map? That was such an awesome map.

Edit: oh wait. That was a campaign level, wasn't it. I thought it was CloudCarbonFreeze. That was good. Played in Jedi Temple too much as well. Clan thing.

So you are 13 now?

First game I played online was... I think actually star kingdoms or utopia. If not then it was Counter Strike followed by Diablo which was great online. DIdnt even lagg with 56k.

Diablo 2 with my brother. Good times. Bastard always took the good loot before i could run up and grab it (He was a Barbarian and I a Sorc, therefore he was always at the loot first).
No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

The first time I started playing games online was around '96, playing OMF.  Of course, I never truly entered competitive play until '99 when Q3A came out.  My bro was one of the best out there and we used to go back and forth on a lan.  I had to learn to play FPSs, and boy did I learn fast.

Good times.
