My route through computers began with the ZX81, then Spectrum, Amiga and PC's. My main memories of the early days was the frustration of typing in listings from magazines and having to spend time debugging before the game would run. Don't even mention Rampack wobble!! My favourite games from the Spectrum were text adventures like Valhalla (If you typed in a swearword you would get the response "Mary is not amused" and a redfaced Mary would come in and slap your face.) We had simple pleasures in those days. I also spent a lot of time on Elite. On the Amiga I played the much bigger adventures like Zork also Populous, Lords of The Realm, Patrician, Premier Manager and of course Cannon Fodder. I first got Civ1 on the Amiga and have got all the versions since on the PC. I tend to spend time now playing various Ascaron games like Patrician III and Port Royal II as well as trying to get better at Civ IV.
