My first video game console was an Atari Super Pong. A brand new one, not a retro gadget purchased on Ebay. It was 1976 and I was a kid. Opening that white box with deep black strong lettering and blue stripes was an unforgettable experience.
A year later, my brother bought a Fairchild Channel F console. Colors! Higher resolution! Controls! Loads of games!
But that was it. The era of the personal computer started at home with an Apple II+ and we never bought another console after that. In fact I only played video games at the arcades when on vacations.
Yeah, real life situations are my source of inspiration. Have Fun!!
