As the title says "What made you start playing FM?".

My reason is in 2008 I broke my right leg and 1month down the line I was bored out of my mind so I looked around on the internet and saw FM09 so it was a time kill.

Yours?

Been a Fifa fan ever since I was a child and that progressed to management games when my cousin got an edition of LMA.

When I got my first PC I discovered FM was apparently the best of its type, which it certainly is.

Got FM2006 from my uncle, as he didn't like it. Well, I loved it, and have had every game since then now! :D

Had CM04 demo free in a cereal box, think it was Frosties XD Then when CM05 came out, was about to get it, then decided to get FM05.

I don't know oO)
I got FM09 for Christmas 09 and I dunno why, the back of the case was hardly appealing, so I don't have a clue why I got it

My cousin who is now 22 had it when Hull were in League 2. He showed me how he got Hull into the Premier League, and I got FM06 when it came out. Played FM ever since :D

I'm not sure if this is the correct place where to start this thread... ¿?

On topic: I was looking for some football club management videogame back in 2006, and I found some information and reviews about a game called Football Manager 2006. It looked good for me, tried this year version, and I'm totally addicted to it since (I've played all of them since that one but 2009 and 2011 version).

Bored after FIFA 11's Career Mode was not realistic enough for me, I looked around. Saw Football Manager 2011 and the review seems to be good. So I got it and haven't regretted since :D
