    Okay, some of y'all gotta have some fond memories with this one . . .

    I got my first PC induced adrenaline rush playing DOOM2 . . . .

    I don't know if I wasted more of my life playing DOOM2 or online Texas Holdem Poker . . . .

    Between a bad monitor/graphics card combo and a farting blue heeler, I barfed after playing DOOM for an afternoon.

    We had DOOM2 on the computer in the residents’ lounge when I was in training. We would play in the wee hours of the morning when we were waiting for lab results to come back or waiting on a mother to be ready to deliver a baby.

    Oh man I played so much Doom, Doom II, and Wolfenstein. If you've never read the book "Masters of Doom" and are a fan of iD I would recommend it.

    Scorched Earth, The Ultima Series, and any of the old LucasArts adventure games get an honorable mention. However if we're specifically talking 386/486 in particular, the game I played the most was....

    I played a lot of Doom, but Duke Nukem' was my favorite "It's time to kick @ss and chew bubble gum, and I'm all out of gum."

    We used to play online over a dial-up modem, and you could chat in the game. When the game started glitching, everyone would type "lag" - which meant stop moving. Once the lag was gone, you could resume play.

    Black Jack at the Nevada casinos. I played well enough to make money!

    Dress up, look for a $10-$25 table with older guys, then use God given talents to watch card patterns from multi deck shoes. I even got asked to leave a couple of times when I got everyone at the table to follow my lead. I may have got up to $100 a hand, but others were in the $500-$1000 hands. When they really started racking it up the house would get edgy.

    Anyone know if DOOM2 will run on modern Win10 machines?

    It's been nearly two decades since I played it.

    That right there is the meaning of life . . .

    I still keep around a USB 3.5" floppy disc drive for my PC. That and a 100/250 MB Zip Drive. Still have an old Sony Mavica digital camera that uses 3.5" floppy discs and a Panasonic digital camera that uses LS-120 120 MB magneto-optical discs.

    Anyone ever play Quake? I know it was a little later, but it deserves a mention...
    The nail gun was epic!
