I started playing at 10, I play every day and want to become a pro player. I play LOL and found all upcoming lol tournaments at https://tips.gg/lol/tournaments/ with team rankings. There is full access to the esports database with upcoming matches and scores and main tournaments schedule.

One of my first games was Harry Potter and the Philosphers Stone, released in 2001. It was so fun and I replayed it 100000 times ever since. Any1 played it?

The first games I played were a GBA Sonic game and a Spyro game on a DS Lite (with the GBA cartridge holder) back in 2009-2010. Great times, great times. I also played Wii Sports Resort (swordfighting FTW) and New Super Mario Bros Wii. I got into Pokémon in 2012, got Pokémon Y as a Christmas present in 2013 or 2014, and I’ve never been the same since. XD

2000, when I was second grade. It started with Nintendo 64, which my brother got for Goldeneye. I didn't really play N64 too much out of Super Mario 64 and a handful of multiplayer games (Mario Party 2, Mario Kart 64, Crusin' USA, and Goldeneye), but later I got my gameboy and played Pokemon starting with Yellow. Rest is pretty much history.

I started playing video games in the late '90s. I have been playing WoW for a really long time. It is also the video game I spent the most time on. I vividly remember making a night elf, logging in Teldrassil, and looking at the giant trees and the vibrant colors in awe. From that day onward, I became a fan of the World of Warcraft and the game became my favorite place to visit. I love the universe, I love the art of WoW, raids give me a thrill and PVP is a lot of fun.I enjoy the thrill of improving my character through professions, gear, etc. I can log in and have a variety of things to do depending on my moods such as M+, PvP, farming for mounts and transmogs, or whatever. And I get quite a bit of entertainment through buying wow classic gold. I tried many MMOs since, even the well-known FFXIV, but they lack something, they are not as charming, the races feel empty, the lore hollow, and it just doesn't feel like home the way WoW does.

I played my first video game when I was around four years old, in 1995. The game was Mortal Kombat II.

Yeah, that probably wasn't a game a 4 year-old should've been playing lol, but it ended up being the catalyst to me becoming a composer! :D

Can’t remember which came first:

The black Game Boy Pocket with Tiny Toons Wacky Sports, Casino Funpak and Kirby’s Dream Land 2, OR

The OG N64 with Super Mario 64, Wave Race 64, and Wheel of Fortune

But those were my first handheld and home consoles respectively. Those happened around 1997. Pretty sure my first exposure to Nintendo though was Mario’s Game Gallery on the family Macintosh 1 or 2 years prior.

I've been playing them for as long as I can remember. But it was in the 2000s since I was born in 2000, earliest memory of a video game was around 2003-04, and I got into Pokémon in 2009.

I've never played a video game. I liked to spend my free time outside. To spend my time actively. Playing soccer, table tennis. I think it's much more interesting than sitting around playing computer games. Now I started playing casino games kakaducasinos.com online. I am interested in making money. It's extreme for me. As there is always the risk of losing.

The fact that you dont like video games doesnt give u the right to trash about video games here
For some, including me, it is a way of therapy and relaxing

Where did he talk trash about video games? He said he finds soccer and table tennis more interesting than video games. That might not be an opinion you agree with, but it's a far cry from talking trash about video games.

It's a bit unusual since they have posted here talking about playing League of Legends and then saying that they haven't played a video game.

I wanted to post here because edutainment was sort of a gateway for me to play standard video games.
I've played Treasure Mountain (kind of a well known one), as well as a couple of Busytown games.

I feel like edutainment gets written off as not being fun, but I think they can be fun, especially with their targeted audience.

Avid Pokemon TCG Card collector.
Early 90's My first game was Rayman on PS1 and a Nintendo 64 with Super Mario 64. New games were expensive in Denmark so my dad got a PSONE modchip from a friend so we could use copied games.

I even had a green game boy. (with a play it loud slogan on the box) But it didn't grow with a pokemon game. i've only had emulators for that for a VERY long time.

Early 80's on a Commodore 16... I'm old :confused:
When I was a kid after my dad passed I would go through his stuff cause...sad, but one of the things I found while rummaging through his closet was a Commodore. I don't remember if it was a 16 or 64 but did it actually run games? I seem to vaguely remember playing with a keyboard when I was very, very, little, but I don't remember any games.
