computer games I played

I've played hundreds of hours in computer game time.

In the 1980s, there was Nintendo Family Computer. The Supermario Brothers 1-3, Strider, Rockman / Mega Man, Contra Team, Gradius, Battle City, Wrecking Crew, Astroboy and 100-in-1 games were on top of my to-play list. I also had the opportunity to try out light-gun and joystick attachments in shooting games, Duckhunt and Pac Man, Atari Space Invaders or Galaxian remakes.

The coming of the 1990s brought with it the evolution of personal computers or desktops where more sophisticated tasks can be accomplished. The user can prepare word documents, spreadsheets, layouts, drawings, and play games with high resolution graphics and animation. Eventually, as the processors and silicon chips got better, as technology improved, many more advanced games were created and more story lines, game types and expansions made into virtual reality. The games not only reflected reality, they also expanded the fantasy realms, from the deepest parts of the earth, the past to future worlds, and alternative universes as far as imagination can take.

Among those I remember playing were CounterStrike, Command and Conquer, Red Alert, Diablo 2, Ragnarok, Exile, Warcraft, Starcraft, and Battle for Wesnoth.
