What?! The Commodore 64 had both a tape drive (you could use any old cassette player - although it'd take a good 5 minutes to save/load a program) and a floppy drive! I remember typing in programs (from Ahoy! magazine, for example! :D ), but you could always save 'em. :)


Yeah, but if you didn't *have* the tape drive, or floppy drive at the time....LOL

The first game I remember playing was 'KC Munchkin', which was clearly a Pac-Man rip-off for the Philips Videopac G7000 console (http://computermuseu...rands/g7000.htm) - I wanted an Atari VCS 2600 for Christmas, and I got this piece of crap instead.

I got my first 'proper' computer in '82 - a Sinclair Spectrum with a huge 16Kb of RAM! Finally, the ecstacy of Jet Set Willy...

Age of Empires 2.

I loved that game. Once I realised you could network the bugger together I was set on the path to being an IT nerd :p

Born in '84, my first game was super mario bros/dunk hunt. I remember liking all games in general. I didnt become a real gamer until Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. And my fate was sealed when I discovered FF7.
