When did you start playing games and how old is everyone?

I started when I was around 5 I think and i'm 26 now so 21 years I think. How about everyone else?

Also what is your favorite videogame?

I started when I was about 8 (give or take), and am now 42.
So I've been gaming for about 34 years (+/-).

I started gaming with the grand-daddy of them all...PONG.
The first console I actually bought with my own money was the classic NES, and have owned every home console since then, including all the more obscure ones such as the 3DO, Jaguar, Neo-Geo, Turbo-Grafx 16, & others).
Plus I've played countless Arcade game kiosks.
GOD, I feel so old.

I got a Sega Megadrive for Christmas on my 6th birthday. I remember it because we had opened all our presents and just as we were starting to tidy up our mum and dad said to look behind the sofa. WOW! A huge box! What could it be? A Sega Megadrive! Whooo!

Probably played games before that but thats my earliest memory of it all. So yeah Ive been gaming over 20 years as Im now 28.

I'm a geezer. First videogame I played was arcade Pong. The first " console " I owned was also the home Pong player .
Nobody believes the official spokesman but everybody trusts an unidentified source .
