    Of course good ole DOS. I remember when I first played C&C Red Alert on DOS and then on W95. What a difference.

    Very brief experiance with the Atari ST. I did have one of those Space Invaders handhelds (well a foot wide), great fun it was. Must have been about 10 or 11, my late Gran's xmas pressie.

    One Command and Conquer that people never talk about is C&C: Renegade, that was such a good game in my book, I don't think it got the attention it deserved. Maybe it's just been forgotten, I dunno.

    I talked it about a lot.
    I used to play online about 6+ hours of it every day, from 2002 (release) till 2009. I was very good at it too.
    I wish they would make a sequel but the chances for that as about the same as seeing a new next gen console by Sega.

    The first PC game I ever played was "Ancient Art of War at Sea" by Borderbund. That was on my "then" uncles IBM (think it was a brand new 386 machine).

    The first PC game I ever played on MY OWN PC was Wolfenstein 3D (Shareware). That was right after my parents bought a 486 DX2/66 clone, and I went nuts at the local shop buying up Wolfenstein 3D, Dune II, and Ultima VII: The Black Gate.

    Did that happen to be the FPS game? If so I neglected that one. Not sure why though these days. With Tipstaff on Dune II!

    C&C Renegade was really good, as Trusteft said, but I only played it till I finished it and then stopped playing it (as I did most games).

    Heard a lot about Dune but surprisingly never did play that one, neither the first one or the ones released after.

    Was very good. It almost like that Westwood owned the game world at that point. It was fun playing House Ordos.

    First video game I remember playing, hmm I'm getting older, but here's 3 versions:

    PC - I remember playing " Decathalon " on an 8086 my dad got to take home from the office on weekends. Just a monochrome screen with basic stick figures trying to run

    Console: Intelevision: " Tron " - Can remember too much about the game, other then never being able to figure out how to play it, and it's very dark and oppresive soundtrack, if you could call it that.

    Arcade: Dragon Slayer - This game ate my quarters ( or my dad's ) and I could never get past the part with the swinging balls. But oh man the graphics were SWEET for back then!

    I don't remember what the name of the game was, but it is what came with the Compaq Presario my parents bought me back in 1999. The game disk itself was black and green and it was futuristic of sorts where you were on a gun turret and you had to defend your base from incoming enemy.

    For the life of me, I cannot remember what the name of the game is right now. I just remember playing it for hours on end.

    This doesn't look like the Voodoo2 I had. My guess, gasp, this is a photoshop fake!

    Nah, I still prefer the two sequels, Frontier and First Encounter. I think I still have their original boxes somewhere.
