It warms my heart to see someone else who came up on Robotech. It was the only rpg I ever played until my twenties. It was a horrible system in so many ways and we home rule hacked it to have little resemblance to the actual game, but damned if I still don't have all the stats and lore memorized to this day.
Gotta say, feeling pretty smug about starting so early at 8. I mean except for those people who started even earlier, obviously - I'm ignoring them.
(Joking of course because it doesn't matter when you started, as long as you did. I guess, hehe).
Bah, I'm even more smug. Age is irrelevant: I started with a system that no one else on this website has ever played, or will ever play! I'm just that awesome.

Whilst I didn't start with Robotech, it and Rifts were my game of choice for well over a decade.
Even had a game of Nightbane going for a little while. :-)
8-9, not sure if it was Star Frontiers or the original D&D Basic set (the one before the "Red Box"). My pastor's son worked for Random House in their distribution warehouse and he would pass along freebies he got now and then. When I was younger I got Little Golden Books and activity books, but when I got older and Random House started handling TSR distribution, I got stuff from D&D, Top Secret, Star Frontiers, etc.
