Bapabooie, I was lucky that my older brother let me play. When I was amost 10, Descent was becoming the game to play on rainy, cold days and at night in the neighborhood. At about 10, my brother literally made me play the game just so his friend's little sister can have a girl to play with. I got into it right away. at about 11, he got me playing on-line. I've been a Descenter since then.
I regret not thinking to thank my brother on my wedding day. If it weren't for him, I would've never met my husband through Descent about 5 years later. 8)

I suppose I should post my story here, since it looks like you have just about everyone else in the Descent World. I could think of a few names I haven't seen around, famous folks like Spaz, old Friends like OPiaTE and Dickweed, Fellow level makers like Devilwing. And so on.

I have orbited the star Sol just over 36 times now. I was first exposed to Descent by one of my cousins in Southern California when I went to visit my aunt and uncle down there. It made nauseous. I didn't care for Descent in 1995. A year or so later another cousin gave me some disks with Descent on it and told me about an online community named Kali. I installed and ran Descent from those disks and even had it running for a short time on a zip drive. Those were the days. Running on a Pentium 90 from zip drive took almost 5 minutes to load up a level.

I made many levels, most of them are actually available for download on Koolbear's Site, with an interview and greater details about me and the level creation legacy I left behind.

I have come to accept a few facts of life:
  • I will never be able to make a level to satisfy Jedilukes desire for a level despite repeated attempts.
  • Most of my levels will never be played again.
  • I will probably die a virgin.
  • People will always hate me

At least I'm not as suicidal as I was a few weeks ago.

Someone had BBCode disabled. For some reason.

Hi, I'm 21 and have been playing Descent since I was 9 years old or so. It first started when my dad downloaded the Descent 2 demo for me, and later I bought Descent 1 and Descent 2, of course I got Descent 3 when it came out, I had the Infinite Abyss version of D2 too, these games basically defined my childhood and I had such good memories playing them, I'm glad to see that the community is still alive.

I started playing Descent 2 Demo in the Spring of 1996 (or in the fall of 1995; the former is more likely). I got the full version in the Christmas of that year. I was about 13 at the time that I started playing. Then I went on to add D1 to my repertoire, followed by D3. I'm 26 now and I'm one of the few of the last remaining ronin that is left playing D1 and D2 on Kali (I hardly play D3).

19, been playing since the 7 level D1 demo. I've only really started playing online recently, though.

25 now, started when I was 10 or 11 with the D1 shareware demo which a friend let me borrow, and it hooked me instantly.

I am 27 going on 28. I started with Descent in 1995 and have played on and off for years. I just got a legacy box set back up and am running D1 right now (trouble on level 8... lol)! I still love the game. I played through D3 and still catch a game off Vortex every now and again!

I started playing Descent 1 registered that my brother owned when I was less than 10 years old; I got Descent II for Christmas when I was 10 or 11 years old, and I bought Descent 3 when I was 15.

I am 19 years old now.

I didn't play multiplayer back in the old Descent days, but I played Descent 3 online when I discovered the community still exists.

Now playing: Resignation - Autopilot
