We had an Atari 2600 when we were growing up that my aunt who moved to California bought for us for Christmas (I think) one year. I would guess 1983 or so but I can’t remember exactly when. That is certainly one of the earliest things that got me into trying to understand how computers worked. Before that computers were just something I saw on TV. I wanted to know how that little box does these things.
I have a Nintendo Wii which I love to play but just don’t use it that often. Being visually impaired I have to sit up close to the TV to play and it’s pretty uncomfortable. Still it’s lots of fun. I just had the urge to play Zelda. I don’t get to play as often as I’d like. Last Sunday we were home from geocaching and Molly wasn’t watching TV so I thought I’d play for a bit.
