My parents refused to let us have the game consoles, but I managed to find some later on. Seemed a but hypocritical since they were both programmers and big time nerds in the 70s and were responsible for introducing me to the Commodore 64 and the TI-99 thus spring boarding me into the world of the computer geek. I own a GameCube, but have never owned a N64 or any Playstation or Xbox system. I did enjoy the Final Fantasy series, and even played FF7 on a roomie's PS1 while I was at university.

If it wasn't for my Mom and Aunts obsession for owning the latest and greatest computer out there I wouldn't be in the computer business like I am.  I'd probably be stuck flipping burgers or watching the register at a tourist shack...

My aunt bought a TSR 80, so my mom had to get one.
My mom bought a Commodore Vic 20, so my aunt had to get one.
My mom bought the Commodore 64, so my aunt had to get one.
My aunt got a 2nd, so we got a 2nd and 3rd 1
The the Commodore 128, Amiga 500, Amiga 1000 then we broke down and got ourselves a 286.

My first loan when I was 16 wasn't for a car, it was for a 386 33 mhz for $2,600.  It had a 20 MB hard drive and 640k of memory.
I paid cash, $250, for my first car.  A 1972 Plymouth Fury.

Funny thing is...  I'm pretty strict with my kids on the computer as well.  We give them 20 minutes each day to play. 

Heck, when I was their age I was spending 18 hour marathons, sleeping through school or half the time skipping it...  Oh, wait... I think I answered myself there  16

I'm talking like 9 years ago, it's pretty hard to scrape together cash, when you're 10

Quite a while actually 1  And when I did I was disappointed...  It really wasn't until the 386 that games and graphics actually came anywhere near the 64...  My Amiga still outpaced the PC until I got my first 486...

A real good friend of mine had the Amiga 1000 with a Video Toaster.  Back then all the best TV stations used the Video Toaster for their graphics, animation and such for the news and weather.  We spent many a night making our own news shows with some very fancy graphics (at least back then).
