I was 14 or something, someone had given me the shareware discs a couple of years before but I had never heard of the game and wasnt really into gaming in any big way. I just tried it one day out of boredom and then my life was over before it began.

First machine I played a respectable game of Doom on was a 486 66mhz iirc, with an sb16.

It was on my friends 486/50MHz (iirc), right after Doom was released. Then later on my own 486/66. I bought pc just because i wanted to play Doom and Wolf3D. :D

Pretty sure it was a pretty hot 486. Sound Blaster. It was before DOOM II came out. I know that much... I doubt it was in 1993. It was at a friend's house.

I was 11, and I played it on a (then brand new) 486 in my cousin's place in Canada. That was early 1994.

About 8 years old.
On my brother's old 486 with 8 MB of Ram. We played Doom and a couple weeks later Doom2. That was somewhere in 1994

Saw it at a friend's on a 386 4mb ram, PC speaker sound, but the first machine I actually had my own copy on was a 486 sx/33 with 4MB of ram and a 428MB hard disk.

66MHz 486 DX. shareware. (early shareware, it had no nightmare skill and swastika was still there.) I think I was 10.
The computer had a sound card, but it took me a while to get the sound working. in those days, I cheated the hell out of everything I played. infact, Doom was one of the first games I finished without cheating.

I also played PSX doom before I got doom 2 for PC.

Hmm. First I was pissed because we'd had a 286 when it came out. I'd played the game at a friend's house and got hooked. Then about a year later my dad caved in and got us a 486-100Mhz. Back then, it seemed like that little monster could handle ANYTHING I put into it.

Then Quake came out.

I was 15 when I somehow found a shareware copy in the shops and played it on a 386 sx25 upgraded to 4 megs ram (one of those PC/Megadrive combos). Just about playable with a size 3 screen. (or a full screen on low detail mode)

That dark passage in Phobos Lab was really scary on the first play...
