Tell us your first memory of gaming on a PC
I wish I could say that my first memory of gaming on a PC had some dramatic impact on my life. But, truth be told, I was five years old and could barely understand what a computer was, let alone how much they’d come to define my life as an adult. My grandparents had an old DOS machine that had only one game on it: Reader Rabbit. I remember having to bug my sisters every time I wanted to play so they could input the run command because that was far beyond my capabilities.
A few years later, however, I’d have my first true PC gaming memory. I saw an advertisement for Heroes of Might and Magic 2 in PC Gamer and found a demo I could download online. I vividly remember it being almost exactly 25 MB in size—only because that still took a whopping four hours to download over our slow-ass dial up internet.
