As a kid, we couldn't afford any console/video games, in fact it wasn't until about 1990 that we got a TV and that was only because my grandparents gave us a VCR.

Earliest, I ever played a video game, was on my Dad's Tandy TRS-80 - it was knockoff version of Space Invaders on the floppy disc.

Wow.

My games were Contra and Dig Dug…I was really good at those.

I also enjoyed the ‘pattern’ games; specifically Dragon’s Lair.

Guys, when my buddy Mike Williams got to this scene and beat the game for the first time (Aladdin’s Castle) there was a huge crowd around him and much cheering on. We bought him pizza and Mt. Dew at Sbarro’s next door after he finished!

I think it was 1993 when computer gammer magazine had to create the award called "Online multiplayer game of the year" for a game called CYBERSTRIKE.

It was a mech game which had equal parts situational awareness, skill, strategy and tactics. It was four teams of four pods (aka mech) fighting over a grid map.

It started on GEnie moved to AOL durring its height and then on to play.net which was owned by the game devs.

Durring the peak of the game I was the top player statistically however there were two maybe three others who I would consider my equal.

30 years later my college friends and I still talk about the game.

I suppose that Battlezone was the one I did best.

I really liked Galaxian. 'Bugs, Mr Rico...' sometimes I think about buying a Galaxian machine.

Pong was the first one out when I was really a kid.

After that Space Invaders and Asteroids.

I liked Asteroids, but I wasn't really good at it.

Galaga, and the original stand up Star Wars game. That game came out and there was a line at my arcade. Red5 standing by.
