When I was around 9-10 I played some MUD. I think before that I played poker on AOL when I was in 3rd grade, but that doesn't really count.

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.

I remember watching my babysitter's teenage son play Diablo I. I was about 8 at the time. God he hated me.

sounds like you have a twisted past...
I have been told
not by one but two of my lovers
that I've got a heart of gold
but I'm unable to share it with others
They call me a poet who'll never have a poem
a tiger with no taste for bone
I'm the wonderful wonderful wizard who's waltzing alone

Jeese calm down. Canada earned its independance peacefully, anyway its part of the commonwealth. I'd have said the same thing if he came from anywhere.

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.

Sorry if that was hostile, I meant it as a joke. A smiley would have ruined the effect though. Sorry. :-[
