    Falcon 3.0. My dad was NUTS about this game and bought a flight setup and a math co-processor for it and I used to play it when he was at work.

    Unreal was my first online gaming experience. I had played Doom, Quake, and Quake II before Unreal came out, but I never played them online. I bought Unreal on release day and on day two I tried online matches. The first Unreal match I ever played online was in Ariza if I remember correctly. Deathfan was my favorite map, though; it was always very frantic.

    My best friend and I did alot of 1v1 and 2vsAI StarCraft matches over modem<>modem back in my high school days. We'd come home from work and tie up the phone lines all night playing it. My dad eventually broke down and got me a second phone line :D

    Good times. I miss my high school days. Everything was better back then, especially the gaming.

    I think Quake2 was the first game I'd play 'on the internet' with random guys.

    Descent, Command & Conquer, and Mechwarrior 2 I think I played earlier, but in direct connection with buddies.

    DOOM II if that counts :D Very primitive, but fun.

    Skipped Quake, don't know why.

    Then... Unreal Tournament :)

    Internet:

    Z

    Then Diablo 1 or Quake, not sure they are both 1996.

    Edit: Wait, apparently Diablo 1 was early 1997 so its Z, Quake, Diablo.
    Weird thing is I specifically remember playing Z before Quake, but it says Quake came out first. I thought Z came out way before 1996. :(

    Then Unreal of course. ;)

    In the same room:

    then

    I first played Quake II on LAN. The first actual online game I played was called Cyberstrike 2 (which was a lot like a precursor to UT2004 Onslaught but without playable vehicles). I also played some Mechwarrior 2 online, but it was more boring than Cyberstrike. I tried playing Q3A online but it did not really do it for me. Then came UT, in all its online glory and mad pace. UT was the first game I actually invested serious online time in.

    That'd be the original Unreal sometime in 1999 not long before UT was released. It came as the result of me discovering the Gamespy Lite client after having installed one of the patches.

    Yup, same here! Infiltration it was, even back in my 56K modem days. I miss the mod and making maps a little.

    dude!
    that's pretty much my story.

    UT99 was the first game I ever played online.
    that introduced me to the Beyond Unreal community which introduced me to Infiltration. INF is still one of the best standalone mods I've ever played.
