The Start of the Affair: Apple II

Back in 1986 I attended a summer computer camp at my elementary school. I had just turned 6 and my mom, who was a teacher there, suggested it to me. On the first day all of the kids were given a designated seat in front of a computer. Once I was seated I looked on at the ugly, beige, brick of a machine in front of me. It had a multicolored logo on it. A rainbow colored apple. We spent the next hour learning how to turn it on, off, and how to put a disk in the five and a quarter inch floppy drives. After that we spent the rest of the day playing with programs that taught us how to type and run programs.

I spent the rest of my week playing these games and others. My thirst for games grew and grew. Since my mom was a teacher at the elementary school I had hours every day after class to spend with the Apple II. I would play on it every day. Everyday that is, until I was given something that I learned to love even more, the N.E.S. Even though the Apple II saw less and less of me, I still thought about it from time to time.

About nademagnetone of us since 8:52 PM on 01.06.2007

I love video games. I love them for better or for worse. It's a passion that will for ever drain my bank account and waking hours.

I've spent more money on game consoles, pc setups, and games than I've spent on any other type(s) of product... other than food and gas of course.

I'm currently playing:
Little Big Planet
Halo 3
Gears of War 2
Penny Arcade Adventures Episode 2
WipeOut HD

Please read and enjoy.
