In my case it seems like I've been corrupted forever. I could tell the names and roles of all Saruman's orcs since I was 10 (about the age when my brain started working at all). Then I saw Chaos miniatures, from 3rd or 4th edition I think, and that was it, I never looked at any other army seriously. I liked skeletons since childhood, but to collect and play myself? ha! Now I have about 5000pts chaos marines army for 40k and starting second chaos marines army, and about 7000pts army of Warriors, and may be will start Beastmen when all my ambitions about Warriors army will be fulfilled.
It was Le Guin for me - I got the Earthsea trilogy as a birthday present and it replaced Tintin immediately. Tolkien took a lot longer to get into, post Eddings/Gemmel and even Donaldson before I could really appreciate it.
I have been playing for about two years and have around 250 models for WoC coming in around 4000pts.
P.S. Re-reading the original trilogy of Earthsea as an adult is a real treat.

in total? hrmm
well, for argument's sake we'll say i started warhammer when i started high school (it was slightly earlier). that was 5 years of school, ending in 2001. so the 5 years in school and the 10 it has been since then makes 15 years!
That isn't strait WoC though. WoC was my first army, but I also moved into wood elves for a time being. I think around 2004 I stopped playing all together, then got back into it in 2009. but again, re-entry in 2009 was wood elves exclusivly for a good solid year or so.
so That is the long story of my corruption.
I am a born northerner so I have always worshiped the Dark Gods. But seriously if we count all settings I always liked the bad ones. From Venom and Carnage to Saruman. Warhammer only I started out with beastman at the age of eight back at the old hordes of chaos but when the new warriors came out I just HAD TO HAVE THEM!!! I thought I would be able to use them with beastmen but got a far superior group followers of the great Architecht.

I've played GW games since I was 9. I can still remember wandering into the local GW, picking up some Khorne Berserkers (Or Chrome Bazeraks as I thought they were called) because they were red and my mate played red marines (Blood Angels). The GW is still there and nowt much different.
As for Fantasy Chaos, well, I was drawn to chaos for some unknown reason somewhere around 4th ED and haven't looked back. The models rock, the back ground rocks and the rules rock. Chaos is winnerest.
I always rooted for the "bad guys." I grew up with a slightly older brother and when we played games I was always was the bad guys and my brother played the hero. I always wanted to play the hero, but I rarely got the chance, and when I did my brother convinced me that I was still the evil/dark side. I really got into it when my buddy bought a 5th edition chaos warrior army and my brother convinced me to get in to it with them. Of coarse not having a lot of money my brother bought the starter set(empire vs orcs.). Guess who I got. Now after a decade and some change of playing I've got OGs, chaos deamons, and regularly DM D&D2nd where I've got nothing but the bad guys to live out. After all is said and done I love the bad guys.
Couldn't say why, but when I started Warhammer 40k at the age of 10, Chaos Space Marines grabbed my eye. Soon after that, Goblins for Fantasy. I've always enjoyed playing as the gribbly side, mostly because it's just more fun. We get to do all the fun things like invade people, after all.
Dragonlance trilogy, age 9. Raistlin was and is my favorite character of all time. That and my family used to play Hero Quest (D&D for Dummies) growing up, and I always wanted to be the bad guy. Don't know why... it just attracted me.
