Hey guys, why don't you tell us what's your background with CRPG and tabletop?

I've played tons of tabletop RPGs in the eighties, and most of my D&D experience was with 2.5. I'm obviously a fan of computer tactical games, starting with 1997's enemy unknown, and CRPGs like the Baldur's Gate series, and I've a weakness for Dragon Age Origins:)

that is a great idea Zaz .  I started playing D&D in the late seventies , playing mostly Advanced D&D .  I played the Hell out of the Bards Tale series and then fell in love with Baldurs Gate and Neverwinter nights.

For me the turning points were D&D 3.5 and Final Fantasy Tactics Advanced (for Tactical RPGs). I sunk so many hours in that game. RPG side it was Silver: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Silver_(video_game) It was hard as balls I was like 10 or 11 when I picked that up from one of my parent's colleague, I was constantly getting mauled by bats because I couldn't reach them.

I actually started out in TT wargames in the 80s and expanded into RPGs - specifically TT D&D in the mid-90s. Started out on 2e but quickly transitioned to 3/3.5e which became the edition I played the most by far and for which I have all the books. By the time 4e came out I no longer had a TT gaming group so I've never had the chance to play 4e or 5e. I only know those systems from having read up on them. I also became a Forgotten Realms fanatic at that time when I started reading the FR novels, and I now own and have read almost all of them.

Video games-wise, I never owned a computer until grad school in the 90s given I grew up in a developing country in Asia and was a poor international student in college in the US. So BG1 was literally the first computer RPG I ever played (though I had played a smattering of other types of games including especially wargames on friends' computers previously). That's a big part of what makes BG1 so special for me. The first time I played it I was so drawn into not just the game but the very concept of a cRPG that I was shocked to see the sunrise outside my window, having played all through the night without even realizing it! I have a very narrow range of video games I play, essentially exclusively single-player fantasy-setting cRPGs, so BG1/2, IwD1/2, NwN1/2, DA O/2/I, Witcher 3, and nowadays PoE1/2, and P:K. I have also backed Realms Beyond and Black Geyser in addition to this game. I still play a handful of strategy/wargames as well.

Hello everyone.

I sarted with BG2 as my first PC Game actually. before buying my first real gaming PC to play BG2 (and Diablo2), I had two playthroughs on a PC of a friend. I was completely hooked on this genre. after that it was IwD1/2 NWN1/2, DA: O/2/3, Witcher Series.... and the new Xcom Series. otherwise playing TTrpg since 2004 and DMing since 2017

Hello.

As for me I started in the snes golden era of jrpgs. Many great games there (recalls with a single tear in eye). Then I stumbled upon D&D stuff. First was BG1 and some books. Naturally next came BG2, IcewindDale 1 and 2, NVN etc. The last one that I played recently was Pathfinder (eager to see what comes with the newly announced wrath of the righteous game)

As for the tabletop I really wanted to try it but alas. I come from a rather small city in Poland and where I was growing up no one really played anything like that. So time went by and I never really had the chance to try it. Don't know maybe my time will still come :)

Also Myzzrym I am a great fan of Final Fantasy Tactics although I like the original better then the gba ones. Superb game. One and only gripe I have about it is that it was too easy after a while of playing. But a couple of years back I learned of the hard mode mods and I've got to say they kick you really hard in the behind. Nontheless really great game, check if out if you skipped that one.

Hello everyone.

My first tactical rpgs were Shining Force 1&2 for the sega genesis (I do love FF Tactics as well), and my first D&D computer game was Icewind Dale, followed by Neverwinter Nights 1&2

Hallo Everyone,  

I started with videogames very early and, not considering old rpg games (like, say, rings of zilflin), my first real experience of rpg was with Ultima IV. Then Dungeon Master and Knights of Legend and Darklands. And then, well, virtually any rpgs that fell on my lap :) (i remember fondly Eye of The Beholder series, Baldur's Gate series, Planescape Torment, Dragon Age.. the list is too long).
In the meanwhile i played a lot of TT rpg, starting as almost everyone else with D&D (i played a lot of 1st and 2nd edition and only a year or two with 3.5 and more) and delving in a lot of very different systems (like Rolemaster, Merp, Ars Magica,Nephilim, Vampire the masquerade and Cyberpunk 2020).
