Here’s a question… What was your first memories of online gaming? What were your first games?
For me, I started playing DooM and Age of Empires… technically not on the internet, but via a serial cable direct between my old 486 and my dad’s laptop…
I remember in days of 56k modems and shitty freeserve my mate Johnny’s folks at upper school got 128K ISDN or early fibre… was like ‘wow!’ - So many lunchtimes at school were spent going to his and watching MTV (my parents only have 4 channels) and playing Star Wars Dark Forces on BT Wireplay (who the fuck remembers that eh?)
It was fucking terrible but equally fucking amazing. Laggy as hell - but we were in fucking AWE at the fact we were playing other people over the internet… MiNd BlOwN!
So who play what first?
