My first memory of games (outside of arcades that is) was playing some traffic light game on an old Commodore Pet at my middle school. I would have been around 12 I guess so 1982ish?

I remember around 1984 Thatcher decided every school should have a computer so our primary school got a Links Machine??? I think it was called..... No one actually used it for programming apart from one of the teachers who made a pirate game that everyone in the whole school would queue up in line to play haha

first computer ZX81 1kb base mem but did upgrade to wobbly 16kb ram pack

eventually got ZX80 whilst awaiting speccy delivery - jeez what a long wait

years later got microdrives & QL etc.....

 

Sadly flogged all my stuff when fell on harder times :(

 

first video game - before Atari VCS 2600 there was numerous Video games

way way overpriced to play tennis & basic shooting the big square dot on screen

some systems you could buy/build from places like Maplin before they hit the high street

 

The say the first so called arcade video game was by atari - breakout

and it was said they had to repair it in less than 24hrs of installing it

the coin box mechanism broke as it just couldn't handle the amount of cash

 

rest is history and I'm way too old for this $hit
