I didn't really get into the online gaming arena much (dialup or otherwise) until I hit college, except for a two-week course at WPI (between sophomore and junior years in high school) in the summer of 1994 where a group of students and I played DOOM. Webcrawler was introduced to me at WPI, as well Lycos. Yahoo? A mere search engine rather than a full-out busy-looking portal.

Netscape was "the bomb" back then, too. Running on Windows 3.11.

I remember Webcrawler. It was the search engine I used most frequently in those days. Lycos? Are they not still around? And yeah, Yahoo was "just" a directory search. The first time I got a message from someone with a "hotmail" account I thought it was pr0n spam.

Also during that era, daily visits to ftp.cdrom.com to see what new demos were out, and of course, USEnet was where most of my time on the net was spent in those days.
