    I played that SO much in high school computer math class. Loved it. Loved Dwango too, and Doom LAN parties.

    Nah. I did so much WAD hacking back in the day, I was inserting all my own MIDI music into the game. There were a few unfinished Star Wars WAD packs that I cleaned up and finished building the levels for- THOSE were awesome.

    My fav old school was rail gunning people in quake 2.

    I always had stupid names like fuzzybunny or bitchandspice. Being called a bot was fun.

    Never played Doom. I was sheltered from video games until Mario/Duck Hunt/Paper Boy at a buddy's house. First system I owned was N64. I do still have quite a Mario Kart and Goldeneye problem, so maybe it was for the best.

    hrm, I thought it was older than that. I thought I was playing that when I was a KID, not a teen.

    Oh man, Quake 1 was where it was at. SO much to exploit in that physics engine. :D
