    1956 here - and this is best poll I've seen as far as just plain fun.

    Started playing computer games on punch cards BEFORE CRTs existed (or at least our university had them). Specifically, Star Trek where we all had to submit our moves and then see who got hit or killed.

    Played boardgames (wargames) before computers and don't let anybody kid you - computer games are MUCH better and take up a lot less space.

    Glad to see such a wide range of players.

    1951 here. Just wondering turtlefang, did you ever play the original Adventure game (the mainframe version) ? I spent nights on that one, long before the original text adventure Zork. Before Civilization and games like it came out, I played a ton of those old Infocom text adventure games.

    1956 for me, which isn't as unusual as some think - less likely for older people to chat on forums, is all.

    Played the "original" Adventure game on UNIVAC in 1975, and PDP-11 and VAX computers in 1976 in college. Civ on VAX in hmm maybe '82? '83?

    1979, the only true year. All other years are inferior. Why? Because we has Alien and we has the class of '79...well, the maternity ward of '79 anwyay! :p

    back in the days when Led Zeppelin was still turning out new stuff, the Stones were wild, and the Beatles had already lost it. LOL. Yep, good concerts, and there were so called "underground" FM radio stations that played whole albums at a time without a commercial. As with all eras, some things were better, most not. Eras are never either as good or as bad as most folks would make them sound, just different.
