When did you get into MW?

Mehcommander was never fun for me-I was too young to understand most of it. :S

I can't play it now, tried after MWO was announced, but I played through that game soooo many times...
I have been playing the TT and MW titles ever since... Oh, and the 3 or so times that I made it out to the pods in the San Fransisco area ... EPIC!
Edit: Forgot to mention the novels... Yeah, read too many of those... I can't remember which book it was, but there was one with the description of an assassin's bullet as it flew through the air... It involved all the physics, aerodynamics and a myriad other factors that I found fascinating.

Then, the MW2 game came out and I was like, hey, isn't that the robot from that cartoon?! I GOT TO HAVE IT! Made my dad buy it for me and happily "mechwarrioring" ever since!

I played all the later battletech/mechwarrior games and even the battle pods in NYC in some arcade near Times Square. I can't wait for this game to come out.

Years later, memories of that game came back to me. I would remember bits and pieces--something about Jade Falcon and a computerized voice saying the names of weapons: "Inferno", "autocannon", "PPC", "Gauss rifle" (pronounced "gauze"). I remember driving a Mad Cat and trying to kill stuff, always having to pick up coolant or I would blow up...and as I said before, never really understanding what I was doing.
That was my original introduction, and I never got back into it until I played a demo for "MechWarrior 3", but this was only after hearing about "MechWarrior 4: Vengeance" from a pal.
I started buying up MechWarrior games left and right: all of the MechWarrior 4 series, MechWarrior 3 Gold, the Titanium Trilogy, MechCommander 2, and a free download of MechCommander Gold. I've been a moderate/purist fan ever since without ever laying a hand on the tabletop game.

Ever since I first started reading the novels I've loved BattleTech, but it is also the source of my greatest frustration! I own two of the "Blood of Kerensky" Trilogy... Curse you "Lost Destiny" and your elusiveness!

Today, I'm waiting for MW:O, just that excited as I was when I went to the store to pick up my altered PS One to finally start to play MechWarrior 2!
Is it already Summer yet!?
With BattleTech itself I got hooked up when the RPG/Boardgame wave swapped over Europe and FanPro published the german edition of BT in 1989.
