english isn't my first language. but i grew up playing a lot of rpgs. i didnt know what the options i was presented with meant or what the items in the games were for, but that didn't stop me from playing. i mean there are indicators what each item does (replenish hp, mana, opens certain doors etc.)
and i played star wars rebel assault on the PC. it was a demo from a CD ROM magazine.. Sam & Max was bundled in it too.
but anyway, that star wars game made me fall in love with orchestra music. sometimes i would alt tab, to pause the game, and let john william's score run in the background. so good...
plus that game has cinematic scenes with voice overs. sometimes i imitated the scenes and accents. people think i was born in the US because i "don't have" any accent...
oh and i went through a WW2 phase when battlefield 1942 and call of duty 2003 were released. i couldn't stop myself from learning about ww2. i turnedo n the history channel when i got home from school, and sometimes just let it run in the background. and i was obsessed with band of brothers and saving private ryan.
but anyway, basically i grew to have an appreciation for orchestral music, and soundtracks in general. and gaming helped me learn english.
not saying my english is perfect :P but otherwise it would have been worse
oh btw, DOOM was my first game. i was 4 years old!
