My first computer was a TI-99 4A that I got in 1981. I wrote a bunch of games in basic on that thing, and in fact I still have it. I don't remember exactly what year I got my first IBM compatible machine, but I remember that it had 128 K of ram and 2, 5 & 1/4 inch, 256K floppy drives, and a 4 color CGA video card and it ran DOS 2.10.
Since I was about 6 years old. I believe the first computer game I played was "Colossal Cave" a.k.a. "Adventure".
Since November 20, 1996 at 1:37PM
Apple ][+ era. My first program was a "high-res" (256x256, I think) drawing program that drew each letter of the alphabet when the key was pressed, for use in teaching my brother the alphabet. I had the only two-year-old brother on the block who could say "ampersand."
Since about 1980 or so. I animated my first pixel on a TRS-80.
Since around 1975!
Since around 93 when I got my first Mac, then when I got the job at Looking Glass in 96 I made the jump to a PC.
When I was around 12 I made this little "shoot the TIE Fighter" sim on my Texas Interments computer. After that, I played Temple of Apshai on my C-64…on audio tape. Ug.
My parents bought a Vic 20 for my family in 1982, and I started coding exciting and sophisticated 3rd grader programs the next year.
Since my parents bought an Texas Instruments computer back in 1983. Then a Macintosh in 1985.
