When did you get into MW?

I've been playing since MW3, my new PC can't run them though.
My dad was into it.

Got Mechwarrior 2 as a Xmas Pressie.
Was also the day i took the first step towards being an IT nerd. I distinctly remember raging after installing it as i could only see top left corner of the screen, everything else was cut off. Took about 30 mins of messing around before i discoverd screen resolution, and what changing the slider bar would do
ahh... fun times

It was years later that I actually got into it though - I hit the books first, then I got into the clickies - right before WizKids went bust. I looked into BattleTech for a bit, but I didn't actually get into computerized MechWarrior proper until, oh, two years ago. I downloaded all the freebie trials I could find, and once MW4 came out or free, I vanished from the face of the earth for at least a month.
And now I'm here.

Got my first PC two years later and it came with MW2. That got me hooked on the computer games (not MW4 tho) until I moved to uni and fell in with a bunch of hardcore table top gamers again and now I'm once again addicted to that!

MY friend had the PC that could run MechWarrior 2, and we rented it from this place, and brought it to his house loaded it up. He thought it was a neat game. I was like I played something like this before. When I got my chance to strap in. Mad Dog said the Computer Holographic Projection voice. I accepted it, went to the mission screen looked at the objectives (I was maybe 10 now) Went out and did a decent job with the keyboard. My buddy did damn good as he was use to playing decent off the keyboard. I was stung by the PPC bug. Now he rented it, MW2 GBL and MW2 MERCS which he enjoyed the best until MY parents got a PC in 97. That Xmas MW2 was on my present list and I got the Battlepack, MW2 and GBL with a freaking sweet player's guide written by Blaine Lee Pardoe, that I still have and treasure.
After reading the Player's Guide cover to cover and soaking in the Clan Fluff beforehand. I got immersed. Building Mechs, running the Missions. In a few weeks I had the Wolf campaign mostly done and went to the Jade Falcon completed that then finished the Wolf one for some reason. Then came GBL, and finally came me buying Exodus Road. I loved the Clans. But after reading a few more books into the Twilight of the Clans series, finding out the doom and that the writers had it out for Clan Smoke Jaguar I picked up Roar of Honor. Angela Bekker, and then scouring all I could for Lore, I came across http://www.student.n...jbo/history.htm
Everything is from there. I have shifted interested on and off over the years. But twice a year, at some points for over a decade I have come back to Mechwarrior and Battletech because it is just an amazing universe. Now for over two years near straight i have played MWLL for at least a little bit 5 or 6 days of the week. Even is it is just a quick couple lives. Past year I have been diving in to BTU learning as much as I can, nothing else holding my interest much hobby wise. I have a lovely family of 4 here, two toddler sons. One I will get to be a MechWarrior at least with luck. Maybe Keresnky will smile upon me and give me two MechWarriors
TL:DR? MECHWARRIOR IS FREAKING AWESOME!!

Long history from what started out as picking up a new board game at the local hobby shop for the christmas holiday in 1984. Can't wait for MWO to start.
Took down my MW4 disks reloaded updated from Mektek last month and dusted off the joystick, man do I love this game.
