    An Acorn Electron...

    At its peak, the Electron was the third best selling micro in the United Kingdom, and total lifetime game sales for the Electron exceeded those of the BBC Micro. There are at least 500 known games for the Electron and the true total is probably in the thousands...

    I'm sure it was around 1980...

    The Commodore 64 was my first computer and it was great but I was only like 6 or 8 years old, I remember sitting down with a programming book and typing for hours just to get some silly little game to play. I was about 15 or 16 when i got my hands on an Amiga 500/ A500 I loved it, It freakin rocked probably the best computer I ever owned the damn thing ran for like 10 years it never had a problem. Now a few thousand computers/servers later I still loved that damn Amiga o ya all the free software you ever wanted.

    My first computer for my family we got when I was 5, back in '93.

    Initially it had a 486, which we upgraded a few years later to a pentium 100mhz to play Lego Island and Red Alert

    I cant remember how much ram it had, or its hard disk capacity initially but it maxed out at 64 mb of ram before we retired it, along with an old Diamond Monster 3D 3dfx card. We did the OS hop from 3.1 to 95 to 98 as well.


    As for my own personal build, my grandfather ran a computer shop and let me build a box to keep. I was initially worried because i wanted an uber strong pentium, and i'd never heard of that weird amd company. It was a K6 350mhz, 128mb ram, SIS 8mb video card, 8gb hard drive.

    Misticil, you brought back memories when you mentioned lego island the game. I remember having that play for the kids that used to live in the neighborhood. That was one of the most fantasy filled games you could get on the PC that would just blow there minds away.

    You know how all the open ended / sandbox games are labelled as GTA Clones?

    GTA is a lego island clone.
