Games from my childhood

I was lucky enough to experience games in the era of Windows 95 and Windows 98. It taught me perseverance in getting something to work. The reward of getting to play a game was the greatest.

I remember it took me a long time to figure out why I could never launch programs in zip files. Why? Because I tried to launch the executable directly without unzipping its dependencies. So I never got any emulators to work.

Demo discs were a big part of my life. Death Rally was the first game I got really hooked on. It was the type of game that could be played over and over. It required skill.

We had an IBM Aptiva computer.

Lately, I have discovered that Roland Sound Canvas was an important part of music in early computer games.
