Any veterans of the original online gaming service, The Sierra Network (later renamed The ImagiNation Network)?

It was wayyyy back a million years ago, before the web could show multimedia content... 1990-1996 I believe. Then AT&T bought it out, held onto it for a few months and sold it to AOL, who used a few of the card games for their lame $2 per hour game area and trashed classics like Red Baron and The Shadows Of Yserbius.

I played Shadows of Yserbius (still have an old disk kicking around somewhere), but not online.

I played both those, the paintball game, and occasionally the card games. Pretty cool stuff back then.

I was mostly in Red Baron. That was the most fun I've ever had playing computer games... it was the golden age of gaming!
