It was a friend's birthday and I was shopping for a birthday gift for him. After looking around the store I wanted to get him GMOD cause I played it before and it was a lot of fun. But in order to use it, it required the user to own a Source game which my friend didn't. So I decided to grab a Source game for him and it happened to be TF2.
Was pretty jealous of him cause TF2 looked pretty good but I didn't have any money to spend on it at that time. He enjoyed my gift and stuff. This was around May.
About a month later the Uber update came out and I happily hopped on. I had made my Steam Account less than a month ago and TF2 was my 3rd game.
All I remember was seeing a hatless soldier shooting FOUR FUCKING RPGS into the enemy spawn on the far side of Point A on gravelpit which blew my fucking mind. "This guy is OP as fuck" "Shit I have to play him" Instantly changed classes and wondered why I dropped dead.
Feel kinda bad for my friend though lol. He doesn't play anymore but if I didn't go shopping for his present I doubt I would have played TF2. I was a huge RPG nerd.
