So when I was a kid in the 80’s, my dad was a computer programmer. We were pretty spoiled and always had a ton of computers and games that nobody else did. My favorites were mostly old DOS games like The Flintstones, The Chase on Tom Sawyer’s Island, Reader Rabbit, and Donald Duck’s Playground.
I also had an NES and loved Super Mario, Duck Hunt, Paperboy, Tetris, Gyromite, and Kid Icarus.
In the 90’s I played Gizmos & Gadgets, Myst, Pokémon red and blue, Fallout 1 & 2, Wolfenstein 3d, SimCity2000, lots of SNES games and Sonic at my cousin’s house cause she had a Sega.
The Golden age of LAN parties brought Starcraft (OMG ) and I also gorged on other RTS games like Homeworld and Cataclysm.
I played a lot of Halo in high school, and it was like the dawn of a new age when Halo 2 came out and my local group could play as a team against strange new people over the Internet.
