“About six months later, my father bought a swanky 486SX with 4MB ”
DID YOU IKNOW you could have been able to play MORTAL KOMBAT
you couldt do that earlier…
WHERE do i start!
I will probably make a bigger post with details for me
My father was/is engineer so we had the luxury of having a computer , the computer was
3 8 6.. ALSO kow as my first brother! yes i grew to really love it because it was my friend for over 3 years.
I knew already back the that games were better on consolls but games on computers were special because they DIDNT WORK most of the time (yes even then) and you were lucky if your floppy disk worked or red..
STILL DESPITE this i still loved our computer because it had a language , very simple dos laguage and there was a personal conection to me ,, i was just a child 7 y old .
I still am known as the kid who knows alot about computers but i do not since i quit computing like that when i was young , but the rumour still goes with me bcause i used to play arround with 386 knowing basic dos.
It might not be such a suprise, since i am here that the real reason i loved computers were mostly games but today my true gaming love is in consols but my past gaming love is truelly in old games and not the new ones.
I remmember ever game i waited for many many days , and i was excited too much it was as if nothingelse made me happy . I ones were told by my fathers friend that he was going to copy a game for me that had ninjas , after that i would go for many days maybe months imagining a imaginary game looking something like ninja gaiden… BUT it was not true there were no game and i never got it , it was very “painfull”.. becuase i had waited each monday to monday week after week… for he had told my father “next week”
I was very found of ninjas and martial arts and i never recieved any game like just like that , and the truth was i loved I LOVED teenage mutant ninj aturtles that i played at my younger friends house on NES .. OH MAN this was the best game of all times.
Long before that i had this friend who got a NES and Mario , i remmember Mario was so boring but just adicting the idea got stuck in my mind and i decided to save up for NES , my dad told me to start collecting coins in order to get NES lol .. it never happened.
Now i have not mentioned that there was this older kid who had a computer he would introduce me to any copy of a game i had he always tried to impress my dad with the graphics of games heeh. HIS YOUNG brother after some years of knowing them got a COMODORE the CASSETTE tape versions (LOL ) EVEN at those days i thought it was funny. ANYWAY this is BIG like MAJOR because HE WAS PLAYING an awesome version of —ROBO COP– lol it was sooo nice! it was the closest thing to arcade i had seen, after that i went into the car and CRIED my eyes out and started dreaming about that game in my mind for a loong time.
i am not sure if it was before or after that which some of my other friends had a computer a keyabord which could play incredible graphic and games and itw as called amiga 500
After this traveled to our family in sweeden (its besides norway) and they had DAN DAN DAN SEGA GENESIS and it blew everything off , it had great sound great visuals and awesome design! but i still had computer.
THEN ONE DAY i used to go to martial art class and i was just living , and my father came to take me home and he was happy , then he opened storage room in behind the car and THERE IT WAAAAS … GUESS WHAT?
THE AMIGA 500
THIS IS still the amazing suprise i have ever had! it was my prise for continuing my martial arts class.
i will continue this post lol later in another post because i there are alot
I will just say i have ALOT of memory with 386 and 486 but i do not know these chronologically so it does not come out right.
I can say i had golden axe on 386 and al we could hear was pc speaker haha it was truelly not even a question of “if it should be htere” we didnt ask . thats is very odd because NES had sounds and arcades had dsounds.. but we were satisfied with being able to even runn a port on PC.
I remmember having alot of memory problems bbut today i realise back hten it was MUCH better if you had 2 , 3 ,4,8 mb ram it was going to decide your fate but it would not be as STUPID and complicated as today where almost every computer barely meets any means no matter what you pay.
BACK THEN it was SOO EASY you had 4 mb or not .. you had this mb space or not , there were simple , simple criteria and IF YOU HAD 8 mb , you had 486 you had 100mb or so THEN YOU COULD HAVE DOOOM 1! DOOM 2
Or before that you would die for Mortal Kombat! whoooooooo! that game was so hot.
YOU COULD PLAY EASLY WITH simple criteria PLAY ROT!!!!
today i really want to complain about the ridicolous demands that even if you meet them there is less then a gurantee to be able to play.
I want to stuff up the face of people how easy it was to play doom 1 full speed and its those memories i refer to when i see any computer who barely can runn what it should today!
i dont want so much high tech i just want some fun!
