What was your FIRST game on PC?


I tried replaying Doom II while I was in university with my friend, but then school life overtook my spare time.

I have a serious problem with playing games and not finishing them. Sometimes I get fed up on the final level and other times I just plan to beat it later. My computer is a graveyard of save data files.


My PC is a lot like this. haha


When I was a kid my dad played some Doom-like game that I can’t remember (Hexen or Blood most likely, but I honestly don’t know) and Redneck Rampage and he let me play those occasionally. When I got Steam though, my first games on that were TF2 and Garry’s Mod.


Not entirely sure, but I think it was Frogger 3D '97, which is why that game goes down as one of my all-time favourites.


Probably Reader Rabbit or Freddi Fish or Pajama Sam.

Although I have distinct early memories of Chip’s Challenge and Frogger 3D as others have mentioned.


The Apple II Oregon Trail, or maybe a Putt Putt point and click. Plus there was that Pajama Sam sock sorting thing.

But I was playing Sonic the Hedgehog 2 probably from age 6 forward. I had a console before I had a PC.


Ah chip’s challenge. I drove my teachers nuts with that game. << wasn’t my fault they couldn’t figure out the puzzles. :smiley:

I really need to find Rollercoaster tycoon again. that game was fun. 2 was good as well but 3 really didn’t do it for me. tried too hard to up it’s graphics where 1 and 2 were just fine.


It was either Stellar 7 or King’s Quest VI: Heir Today, Gone Tomorrow


Original Doom was first PC and first ever game.


the first games i played on pc werent mine, they were my brothers. the commander keen games, wolfenstien and ancient empires. (not age of empires) the first game i ever bought for myself was either hioctane or descent. I still love descent and have way more fun playing it than crysis or cod or any of that shit.


Wing Commander 1 when i was about 9 or 10 was my first PC game… I’d had a NES as long as i can remember, but i remember playing WC at my mates neighbours house and was completely blown the fuck away by the graphics and the quality of the gameplay… i havent looked back since


I’m fairly sure that my first ever PC game was one of the Leisure Suit Larrys. Not sure which one though.


Another one that I played after the Star Wars one was Sheep xD


Doom, Prince of Persia, Lotus Ultimate Challenge, F1 Grand Prix.


^ these!

-> actually learned English (written, since I had the non-talkie version with subs) quite well from this game when I was 10


The first PC game I played was a weird educational adventure installed on our school computers. The first PC game on my own computer was Hover! since it was included in Windows 95. Also included with my graphics card drivers was a demo version of Worms. However I played Hover! first. The first full PC game I actually bought myself was Age of Empires.


Crimson Skies and Midtown Madness 2.
How I loved those games.


oh my god! Sheep! I haven’t seen that game in forever! I thought it was a very obscure game, not many knowing about it.


It was either doom or privateer.


I haven’t seen it for a long time too. I remember playing a sheep game but was trying to figure out if the game was simply named Sheep… and it was. Well it seems it is not so obscure xD it was a great game :slight_smile:
