    Edward's "pulling out the old man card" comment got me to thinking :) What's the first PC game that you remember playing?

    Mine was Phantasie (1985). I used to play it in the office, after work, since we didn't have a PC at home, then.

    My first was Star Control 2 played from 5.25 inch floppy discs, an awesome game.

    It's difficult for me to separate out all of my early computer experiences by platform. I had a Commodore 128 and later an Amiga 500 followed by an x286 PC and future PCs from then on out. A lot of the games back in the late 80s were available for several of these systems.

    Some of the first distinctly PC games I can recall playing are Mechwarrior 1 and Sim City in the late 80s.

    It's hard to remember which came first, playing Gunship 2000 on my brothers PC (when a game called 2000 was seen as sci-if, to be fair, it was grounded in modern tech, so near possible future scenario) or Police Quest on my friend's computer.

    First strategy game was Dune 2, first 4X was Civ 1. I missed the space 4X genre at first, only played very narrow scoped space strategy games. I did play SMAC when it came out but that's terrestrial sci-if. MOO2 was my first entry for space 4X games as we know them.

    Well I first wrote a game to play in the Navy in 1966 for pinochle. My next I wrote for a main fame maybe 1972, Backgammon. I don't remember, if I played any games till the Tandy pc, not sure what they were. First game I bought about that time for my son was maybe Starfleet, though I never played. I played Moo1, when it came out and the Ascendancy.
