I’ll never forget it. 6th grade sitting in the front of Radio Shack while my mom shopped in Sears. All I wanted to do was walk around and explore this ‘virtual’ (was that even a word then) world. Wild horses couldn’t drag me away from it. My dad, however saw much more. He saw an opportunity to get me into a much bigger world with a real future. He roped my mom into getting me the Tandy 1000sx computer with a CM-11 monitor and their highest end Dot-Matrix printer for Christmas that year. We would play KQ1 and 2 for hours, but we had to look at what else the computer could do for at least 10 to 20 minutes first. I learned everything about it. Anytime a game required an upgrade, he an I were in the case adding memory, installing a sound card and eventually getting newer and better PC’s just to play the latest King’s Quest or Space Quest. I am now an IT professional at a fortune 500 company. Thanks Dad and Thank you Sierra for all you introduced me to.
