I’ve been playing video games for close to as long as they’ve been available and I’ve been standing under my own power. We kind of grew up together. However, I have been known to have extremely long lag times in upgrading my systems, largely because it tends to take an extremely long lag time for me to show any proficiency at a given game.
I started, like most of my generation, with Pong. Not just any pong, though. Dad was always looking for the next thing. Although it usually ended up the most interesting next thing, not the best technology next thing. We had (if memory and Wikipedia serves) the Telstar Ranger.
