Hello everyone. Not too good at these type of posts but here goes! Been into games since 1993 when my dad got me my first console (a Chinese knockoff of the SNES as Nintendo wasn't available here). Started PC gaming in earnest in 1999 and been hooked ever since. Although I did get a PS4 in 2018 and a Switch soon after, PC gaming remains my main platform. I discovered PC Gamer in 1999 too, along with the now long defunct PC Zone, and I tried to read it as often as I could to this day. The image in my avatar is from Colin McRae Rally 2.0, one of my favourite games which I play to this day, 20 years later -- another reason why PC gaming rules, because where else can you not only play cutting-edge games but also decades-old favourites. I play mostly racing games, shooters and telltale-type games. Hope to get into PC VR some day but can't afford it right now.

Welcome to the forums @SBan83! CMR 2.0 is my favorite racing game of all time. Played it a lot with my father and we had steering wheel and pedals and got quite competitive in it. Fighting against each other and shaving off those milliseconds was pretty awesome. My favorite car was the Subaru Impreza 2.0 (Petter Solberg fan here) and Finland and Sweden were my favorite maps. Right now I am playing Forza Horizon 4 and mainly playing it for sniping cars on the auction house and free-roaming doing stunts and drifting.

Thanks @Frindis ! Sounds like some great memories for sure with your father over CMR 2.0! And big Petter Solberg fan here too -- I simply loved his personality and driving style. After he left, I latched on to Latvala until Toyota eventually got tired of footing his repair bills, sadly!

Hello, am Tristan. Mortal Kombat is so far my best game with guts. The genre of kungu fu style fight and the practice made easy with a game console is breath taking. I also do play Tekken.

Am looking forward to expanding my taste to other games and interacting with you all.

In the real world am an IT specialist (systems Administrator).

Whaaa...? Never introduced myself. Sorry, forgot all about this topic.

I'm badman. Belgian. No, I'm not that bad. My nick actually means something different in dutch: bath-man, translated. Together with the superhero-link, it's actually an 'ok' nick I thought.

Well then, where to start? Born in 1980, so started PC gaming early 90's when we got our 386SX. I've seen a whole generation of games passing by. Actually, I consider myself lucky. Young gamers might never feel the same thrill we had when we got our hands on the all-time classics: Wolfenstein 3D, Doom 1-2, Duke Nukem 3D, C&C, The Need For Speed, Half-Life...We started our 'career' with games like EgaWalls, Alley Cat, LodeRunner, Prince Of persia...all great games. Then, on a nice sunny day in 1992, our dad ran in to the room with a demo copy of Wolfenstein 3D (PC Format magazine). You just can not describe the feeling we had back then. It was like stepping into a time machine. A milestone was born. We never knew back then that we were about to have the same experience with Doom, Duke Nukem, etc...Google a game like 'Incoming'. That game might look horrific. But I remember spending a stack of money on my Pentium 166MMX, buying a new 8mb Diamond Voodoo 2, just for Incoming. When we finally started playing, my jaw dropped in amazement on how fantastic those graphics were LOL. So, I've see some things passing by. Same with hardware: 386SX,486SX, 486DX4, Pentium,...A bunch of graphics cards. The very best being the Radeon 9800 PRO. Why? That card was so insanely powerfull when it came out, that it lasted for years. It's the one thing that I might hang on my wall some day. Do I still play today? Offcourse: Red Dead Redemption 2 is my current 'project'. I'm in to open world games. I actually like playing a lot of games, except adventures/MMO's/most turn-based games (but I loved Jagged Alliance). I have a reasonable big box collection (because 'duh') and kept most old hardware pieces. Yes, I might be too nostalgic. The same goes with my old toys (MASK, GI Joe, Lego,...) I've kept them and I plan to restore them back to their old 'glory'. See you on the forum!!!!

Hi.. I am Nikhil.. I am not a pro-kind of gamer, but used to play a lot of games on my low end laptops over past 10-12 years.. I love RPG, open world, strategy & city building games. I never plays multiplayer. Single player games is what I love. Recently bought a decent gaming laptop - Lenovo Legion 5i. Looking forward to enjoy some quality gaming time in the coming months.

Hello all, I've owned a PC since 1999 & the first proper PC game I played was Half Life, I actually bought this game with my first rig. I paid £850 for my first PC...wow PC's were expensive in those days. Entering this price into an inflation calculator works out to £1,484.15 in todays money.
I used to use newsgroups & newsbin...I'm in the process of a new budget build too & ordering the parts as we speak; Now I like FPS , driving & tycoon building games; I'm a Linux user primary & have a good knowledge generally on building & hardware so I may be able to help with peoples problems.
I nearly forgot to say my name is Rob & I'm from central UK;

Hello I'm a mostly casual old-school gamer from the frozen north.

I prefer rts fps and arpg games with a good story.

And I'm old enough to remember that pc gamer magazines used to come with demo-cd's still have a few knocking around.

hi guys, I'm Brunhilda I'm very new to this gaming world and I must say I do not know why I didn't start this gaming journey sooner. truth be told I'm still learning but I am enjoying the ride. I started getting interested when I came across a video on TikTok about the black panther, I went to youtube to check it out and realized I'm already 5 videos deep. So here I am wanting to know more.
