    Must be many who, like me, have been gaming since the olde worlde pong days. What you working your way through now?

    I started on black and white pong, before the colour version, atari, zx81, spectrums, c64, amiga and ST's before moving to consoles like PS1, PS2, Xbox and the 360.
    Never been in to pc gaming, mainly because I like joysticks and controllers, but I have dabbled on a non gaming machine.

    My favourites are the Halo series, Half life, Fifa, Portal, Left4Dead, Doom, Quake arena in multi player and loads of others like Serious Sam and Forza.

    Veteran gamer here! In fact, I feel more of a gamer than a musician or producer. My PC is always split between a games setup (with 7.1 sound card, joysticks, TrackIR, 3D glasses for Tridef etc.) and a music production setup (with dedicated sound card, pro audio speakers, midi controllers, pedals etc.). Yes, a split personality PC, inefficient perhaps, but it has some advantages, too. My experience with all kinds of joysticks and gamepads has improved my skill in using controllers like Maschine studio.
    Games? Oh, yes, hundreds of them. But I spent most of the time with my favorite ones which are: Il-2 Sturmovik simulator, Thief series (especially Thief 2 with the hundreds of addons), Assassin's creed series, Half Life series, Total War series and of course adventures. 20141208170508_IL2BOS_cov.jpg

    I started in the 80s with the zx81 then moved to the commodore 64. At the time I was amazed by the graphics which were looking so realistic to me. :)

    I had a five years pause due to the university then got back into gaming in the mid 90s with Doom and Quake.

    Right now I'm split between games (x-com, wolfenstein... ) and music among other things.

    My first console was a Playstation 1 (loved crash bandicoot) (since owned a ps2, Xbox360) and now own a ps4 (Love the exclusives like The Last of Us, Heavy Rain, Beyond 2 souls) and a gaming pc running a 1070 oc edition.. Life caught up with me though and now I don't have time to game no more, and when I do I don't really get immersed like I used to. Barely have time to make Music these days :(

    Veteran gamer. My favourite game is/was "Lands of Lore - Throne of Chaos". I'm playing CRPGs and ArmA -> i.e. fiddling and modding.

    Everywhere at once but no place in particular
    After I lost my left arm and almost my life in a horrible collision captaining my ship and at the controls while playing Asteroids at the game lounge in the student center at university, I haven't gone near a game since.

    Never seen this one before: Any idea when it was produced? I'm guessing the 80s?

    Hey, we're a musician's forum here, so no. That's what everybody does here.

    @DrachenFire They made an Atari version of descent II ?????? not really, or? Btw, have your heard of overload, the new descent-ish game made by the creators of descent? https://playoverload.com/
