in reply to My first computer was...
My parents bought me a Commodore 64 for my birthday in 1983 . Used it mostly for games but I wrote my first BASIC program on it - well, copied some code from a magazine if that counts :-). I can remember playing Forbidden Forest and thinking the gore was great :-) Other games that I can recall right off the top of my head - International Karate, Paradroid, Uridium, Summer Games, Summer Games II, Winter Games, Monty Mole, Loco, Suicide Express.
Oh, those were the days.
