Ever since I was a small child I played chess with my grandfather. So this game influenced me most.

Computer games

Kick off (best soccer game ever), Player Manager (best soccer manager), North and South (when I first fell in love with the confederacy).

Video games
Gauntlet with "Thor the Warrior" & "Thyra the Valkyrie" :thumbup
from which I like the cooperative aspect that gave me interest to mythology (who was "Thor", what is a "Walkyrie") leading to RPG

AD&D 1st Edition (non translated !)
using mainly Norse/Lord of the Rings mythology
with teamwork, complementarity, strategy,...


First traditional family games:
Checker, "petits chevaux" (ludo)
later Monopoly, Chess, Risk
good recall of non-TV family meeting rather than the games themselves

...and then modern wargame/rpg-like stuff
Heroquest, Space Crusade, Battle Masters
which leaded me to historical military search (weapons, coat of arms, uniform/armor,...) and discovering all the "Holy Roman Empire" part of Lothingen/Lorraine that the "school french History" had hidden

:D My father played chess, too. I was taking the chess pieces (the rook was my favourite) from his chessboard and hiding them from him. It was very funny, at least for me. :D

Speaking about boardgames, I was mostly fond of some sort of Monopoly (it was called Turism (http://forums.skadi.net/redirector.php?url=http%3A%2F%2F1.bp.blo gspot.com%2F_5wm4RurqAaI%2FSyVFvf9QelI%2 FAAAAAAAAAcM%2F6u41U_irAWg%2Fs1600-h%2Fjoc_turism.jpg)).

Computer games? Mostly strategy games.

The first one I can remember the name: Rival Realms. I was fond of elf druids, human mages and priests, greenskin warlords. And then, Zeus: Master of Olympus (building cities in Ancient Greece, administrating them; goals related to Greek mythology; my favourite god was Zeus).

It wasn't childhood anymore, when I bumped into: Age of Empires, Age of Mythology (I was already fond of the Norse), Civilization.
