Racing Destruction Set for the Commodore 64.
Well I can remember playing alot of stuff on our Commodore 64 for dont remember exactly what it was. Then there as everything on the Atari 2600 but what really got me going for online game play was probably doing the modem calling on WC1. From there it went into all night binges of StarCraft:Broodwars with my buddies. Went to alot of things from there but really it was Starcraft that started the obsession; can remember walking to class one day and seeing this leaf skitter across the path in front of me. I stopped dead in my tracks and thought "OH SHIT A LURKER!" I LOL'ed at myself and continued to class, told my buddies later that day and havent heard the last of it some 10yrs later.
For me, this is where it all started...
God, I would do almost anything to get my hands on a Vectrex again...I played that thing so much it was obscene.
Kings Quest (the original)- I am even kicking around tossing an old machine together just to play them all again.
