I was just having a little trip down memory lane with a few of the staff here and we got to talking about our very first PC's and I thought for a bit of fun it would be interesting to see what you guys had as a first PC. Personally I am one of those brave pioneers that helped pave the way for the younger generations to enjoy things such as full color monitors, and DVD drives. Back in my day it was a full bodied green screen that we spent hours staring at whilst waiting patiently for a cassette tape deck to load up a game which could take anywhere up to an hour and sometimes longer if the game needed 2 tapes. I understand that not everybody will know what the heck a cassette tape even is so i have decided to show you a few images to help me tell my tales of woe. So on my Commodore 64 for instance it had something we old farts call a tape deck that we would place a cassette tape of our games into in order for it to load up: So we would take this: And place it in here: This would load the game onto our PC: Which could take anywhere up to an hour or more. In return for our patients we would be rewarded with this: That would symbolize one of two things, either the game was loading or had crashed... only time would tell! If you got to the end of the tape and you were still looking at a screen similar to the image above you would have to start over gain. If however you were looking at a screen like the one above you were now playing one of the high end games of the time with graphics that would blow you away! Do any of the images above bring back memories for you , what was your very first home computer, and favorite game?
