  2. My parents had a commodore 64, in the early 80's. Despite it being 10 years older than I am it still works without a problem.

  3. Before I can remember, I think we had one ever since I was alive (93)

  4. Late 80s. Family's always been a bunch of windows converts, which I find somewhat hilarious given the era :)

    My parents are both programmers so that probably had something to do with it

  6. 1998
    Raiden 2, Starcraft, Tomb Raider, NFS2.
    Lots of DOS games from sketchy stores, and I specifically remember playing Isle of the Dead.
    Raiden 2 was fucking amazing.

  7. 1999. Gosh I feel like I got mine late, considering that I (on avg.) am about 3 years older than 3rd/4th year students here

  10. Hmm...I'm going to say between 1996-1998. I remember watching my Dad play quite a few DOS games from Quake to Blake Stone. Good times!
