Still remember my first computer, a ZX Spectrum 48K+. After that an Amiga 500 and finally a 486 with 8mb RAM.
I changed many computers and consoles from that time, but i consider my first two pieces of hardware my favorites.
I still remember my enthousiasm when i saw Manic Miner,
Yie Ar Kung-Fu and West Bank.
I will never also forget Turican I & II and my surprise when i
heard my little speccy talking when Jail Break was finished loading.
I was also obsessed with computer music and game music more specifically from the spectrum games. I remember, due to speccy
limited memory and sound capabilities, how the game designers try to overcome this problem. In late 80s games had
no sound except some blip-blip :). They also tried to overcome this problem with indirect ways. With the
package of out-run they gave you a tape with the soundtrack.
So to hear the music, you just need a second cassette player.
I really loved these days, and i'm happy that i was around at the time.
