    I really loved Wolfenstein 3D. Kept me up all night for about 2 weeks. Totally hooked. Wandered for hours through the corridors looking for an exit. This however does not make me want to play it more than 2 seconds....

    Never played the new one, the original was just fun because it was Nazi themed.

    I got into the genre with Doom II so Wolefenstein did nothing for me.

    Doom II scared the crap out of me.

    DOS was the $#@!, so many times I felt proud for getting a tough command line just right to get something to work.

    2.33 mb was a huge game back then. I think wolfenstein was 143 kb. Remember these games were stored on 1.44 mb floppy drives and I had like 3 or 4 games on one disk.

    Anyone remember PKZIP'ing in DOS? How about trying to zip something over multiple floppy disks?

    I remember doing that with Duke 3d as well as trying to launch it to "dukematch" with just the right modem initialization string. That is when computers were for real men.

    Bulletin boards ruled in that time. You had a modem, downloading first at 9600 bps, later 28k, and the summum in those days was 56k6.
    With pkzip you could split ZIPfiles into 360k, 720k or 1.44Mb blocks to write to diskettes...
    Had to use Debug to partition drives back in the days of DOS 2.11. That was a bother. Installing hardcards (harddisk with a controller on a long slotcard) for PC's without harddrives.
    Long live the 8086 Upgraded to a V30 inmediately. That first XT is the computer I had the longest. Ater that they were all replaced within 3 years or less.
    First true internetbrowser Mosaic was a revellation.
    Before that we had to use Unix terminal commands in ftp sessions to seriously get something off the internet.
    But playing Doom over a modem was a nightmare.
    Allways sluggy.

    It felt more special back then. I remember when I would get access to some FTP filled with all kinds of great things and I felt like I had just found buried treasure.

    It's allways the dude with the worst connection that makes the game hickup, and for you know it someone is standing in front of you with a rocketthrower and you're history, again.
    Oh, and never ever let your brother talk you into a fragfest of a custom game which all his friends play an you never have been in before.
    They'll be coming from all sides, and you will be the talk of the next 2 birthday parties on how everybody slaughtered you.

    Quake II and Duke Nukem 3d for me. I was probably obsessed, if you called my house during those days all you would get was a busy signal.

    I seriously doubt anyone here could beat me in either.
