I’m glad I had no restrictions!
At age 10, the family computer (pentium II 266mhz) was moved to my room, which was awesome for me. But unfortunately my parents were spending time in my room so I couldn’t always play video games. But I played a lot of starcraft and diablo 1 on this computer. I also had all the different nintendo consoles up to the n64 and the playstation 1 at this point so when they were on the PC I still had them to play on.
This formula of the family PC in my room (now a pentium III 733mhz) kept going this way until I was 15 or 16. I was playing so much Diablo 2 and I was getting annoyed that I had to leave to game so my parents could use the PC. I bought my own Dell athlon 64 x 2 4200+. From this point I took interest in hardware and I even bought a BFG 7300gt to upgrade the dell. I played a lot of diablo 2 again but my tastes grew broader, I tried many FPS games and I LOVED Battefield 2142. The last 9 years I’ll keep them for another post
