I started playing RPGs when I was 5, after convincing my older brothers to let me play AD&D. A few years later, when I could read the books on my own, I convinced my friends to play. Of course, we really had no clue about the rules for the first few years - but we never gave up.
Straight through my teen years I played everything I could get my hands on. What we played most often were Palladium games (Beyond the Supernatural, TMNT, Heroes Unlimited, Rifts, etc), Call of Cthulhu, and Paranoia.
I played in a local Vampire: The Masquerade LARP for a few years before running my own Sabbat LARP, and had a one-off Call of Cthulhu LARP in a "haunted" mansion.
I played here and there in D&D and CoC over the intervening years, but fell out of playing for a while until few years back when I got a small crew together to play a Pathfinder campaign.
Once that ended I stopped playing again for a while until I got the itch to play again. That was around the time the D&D 5e playtests were happening, so that got me excited for it again and I started running adventures and playing in some local Adventurer's Guild games.
I've used Roll20 as a supplement to actual tabletop RPing as well as some fully online campaigns. These days it's mostly just a weekly D&D campaign.
