How I got into...
Well, let's just say that I tried to ram the other cars on racing games, hitting them head-on going in the opposite direction of the track. I remember doing it in a DOS Nascar game, and then TOCA Touring Car game out and it was great to crash into other cars.
I then played Destruction Derby 2, which became my favourite for years.
I did not want to play Carmageddon until many years later because I thought it was too evil (yeah, thanks Spanish media!), but when I got to play a demo of Carmageddon2 and later got a pirate copy years ago (omg!) I became addicted to it.
