The most important thing in the life adventure is to remember when and how did it start. First impressions, inspirations and simple steps shape the future.
My gaming experience started in mid '90 on my XT with Hercules graphic card and amber screen. I was too young (and I lived on the other side of the iron curtain) to remember Apple II or Commodore computers before. One of the first games I remember from my early childhood was 'Prince of Persia' made by Jordan Mechner. I played it for almost 12 years before I was able to finish it without cheating (I can still remember 'prince megahit' password that enables cheat mode). I'm sure that a lot of you had similar experience.
