So, Today I was playing CS:GO when someone (that I doubt he is a kid) Kept saying that he has my IP (Because I share it in my profile steam profile so anyone that is viewing my profile could join my server), So should I believe him or Personal Computers can't be DDoS attacked? (Short Question Explanation: Could anyone use my IP to attack my personal Computer?)

Yes.

All it requires is to know your public IP address, and simply send a whole crapload of access requests to your IP address.
Better if they have a botnet to leverage, and send thousands from many distributed systems.
DDOS = Distributed Denial of Service.

They'd just flood your incoming pipe with junk requests. Valid traffic is lost in the flood.

What is your IP address?

I'll show you how easy it is to do.... ;)

For the humor challenged: That was a joke.

And don't doubt that it is a kid....DDOSing somebody, when the IP is known, is ridiculously easy--right up the alley of some kiddie out there.
