27. First played kq3 on a 286 back in 1989. Then sq3, then kq4, ... gets kinda fuzzy after that. I know monkey island 1 on a 486 was in there somewhere. That was my first lec game.

Ahh, I remember the times when every Lucasarts Game was perfect...

One of my first games was MI1. I can remember not getting far because I never went back where Guybrush initially comes from (the lookout guy).

Heh, yeah. Back then Lucasarts was the ultimate quality brand for gaming.

But that all changed when Star Wars: Masters of Teräs Käsi was released. Then followed the flood of bad games.

Lol, that title sounds so stupid. The german word "Käse" means "Cheese" and "Käsi" sounds like a minimization of "Käse"

Muahaha..... :lol:

"'Teräs Käsi' [...] while being in grammatically incorrect form, is Finnish for "steel hand"." (Wikipedia)

"Tekken (鉄拳, Tekken lit. Iron Fist) is a series of fighting games developed and published by Namco." - Wikipedia article on "Tekken (Series)"

Darn spoilsport Wikipedia. ;) Anyway, the correct form is compound: "teräskäsi". This was the funniest thing at the time of the release because you didn't see a lot of Finnish in internationally released games. And you still don't. It's mostly kids' games (naturally) and non-games like the Sims that get fi_FI localization.

Well I'm 39, and still have fond memories of the text adventures made for machines like the Sinclair Spectrum 16/48K, and Commodore 64. Like the 1983 title "The Mutant Spiders". So I guess my "point-n-click" interest developed alongside the games themselves, when they replaced the text adventures :) Can't help feeling old when I have to use an emulator to access games made in my teens!

ScummVM is absolutely brilliant, nostalgia abounds every time i pick up my Windows Mobile phone (w/an 8 GB memory card) and play a game made for the antique machines of yesteryear (with kilobytes that could be counted in the hundreds!).

I am 25. I think that adventure was the first computer game I had ever played along with Nethack. I also remember playing one of the oregon trail games in elementary school. The first video game that I ever played was kid nikki.

Yay for text adventures on the ZX Spectrum! :D

I played so many of those as a kid.
